    Is there another way to say it?

    Oh, another one I like is Broadmoor.

            Don't forget the Metro, Ace, Boss, Mogul, and Chief line of Stude trucks!! The same truck maker picked up the 'Metro' name for their cab-foward step-vans. And Willys used 'Ace' for their small car as did Pontiac with 'Chief' in conjunction with another word. And Ford picked up 'Boss' for something completely different![}]

                Ya know, a lot of Studebaker's names got stolen by other auto makers. Are their any that Studebaker stole from somewhere else? [)]

                    Story has it, Billy Rootes of Rootes Group was very P.O.'d at Studebaker for 'stealing' the Hawk name as it was used on a model of the Humber since 1951. And Willys sort of used the Lark name, but it was hypenated as 'Aero-Lark' for their small car in 1953 or so.

                        The Ferrari Daytona didn't come out until 1968.

                            Matthew,

                            It is actually Gran Turismo (I just checked the side of my '62 to be sure).

                            Also, the Broadmoor is a resort in Colorado Springs. I have a friend from college who spent a summer working there when we were in school.
