    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.

                            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.
