    Know your Studebaker history. What new Studebaker feature would these young ladies probably have been publicizing in this and other photos taken during this "shoot?"

        Hi Richard

        Climatizer ventilating and heating system! How many second do you suppose it took those ladies to get back inside the nice, warm interior after the photo was taken?

          The oustide rearview mirror with the built-in thermometer?

          Only problem is, the car in the photo isn't equipped with one!!

            The girls on the right and left are twins. Twin traction?

              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                Did you check your closest Sunset Lodge? Don't forget to bring a cake with about 90 candles in it!!

                    I think you mean farewell to the Pre-focused bulb-type headlamps!! '39 was the last year for them.

                        I would have guessed the beautiful new nose on the car, as all 3 ladies seem to have rather prominent proboscii... but yeah, it's gotta be the Climatizer.

                          OK, the Climatizer wins!! First integral heater/defroster system that used not only a fan but also forced air from the cowl vent. Not sure if you were aware but there is a pivoting hood handle on the '39s and the girl in the center seems to have noticed it.

                            Shouldn't the word noticed be in quotes, Dick? I.e., "noticed." <GGG> BP

                            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                            Ayn Rand:
                            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
