      YUP! Thats what they've been telling me for almost 60 years. I know I've probably met you Roy, but couldn't guess when. Been going to Studebaker stuff with him for decades, but only got my Stude a few years ago.

      • I've been watching some noir-style forties and fifties films lately, and there always seems to be a couple of Studies in the background. I think we, or at least I, tend to forget how popular they were in those days.

        • I was watching Gary Larson's (that guy is sick) Tales From The Dark Side on YouTube last night. There was a Lark grill hanging on the wall in an old barn. Does that count as a Studebaker in a movie?

            • I watched Predator 2 last night and there was a Gt Hawk in one of the scenes as they walk out of the police station .

                • Maybe this was mentioned here already but there was a red '64 2dr Commander at the end of an episode of Mysteries at the Museum on the Travel Channel last night. It looked like it was from the Different by Design dealer film.
                  They were talking about a guy that rode rocket sleds and later help develop 3 point seat belts which we know Stude didn't have but it was neat to see the car.
                  I think the episode is called Unbelievable Inventions

                  • I watched an old (1973) movie on TCM last night called "Badlands" starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek. It's a little violent so caution should be exercised. However at about .49 thru .56 there is a 1948/1949 Starlight Coupe. As an aside there is a near derelict gas station in one scene near the end where Sheen fills up his stolen Cadillac, which still has some writing visible on the wall and I traced it back to a little hole in the wall in Delhi Colorado. Neat pics are available on google-amazing this technology.

                    • There was a commercial for a new movie coming out soon called, "Bad Times at the El Royale.
                      They showed a white (I think) bullet nose Stude from above.

                      • Must have been mentioned here before, but I am not going to read through 700 posts to find out. I have a copy of "The Lady Killers", starring Alec Guinness, and it prominently features a bullet nose sedan used for a robbery escape car , in London no less. I have not watched this movie for years, since long before I had a Studebaker, so it would
                        not have been something I remembered. But I did remember how entertaining it was, with Peter Sellers, Herbert Lom and others, and when I watched the remake with Tom Hanks a few years ago I was very disappointed. I can't think of anything more pointless than remaking a movie that starred Alec Guinness or Humphrey Bogart.

                          Slightly off track, but I also own a 1973 Oldsmobile Delta 88 , which are used in all the "Evil Dead" movies & the "Spider Man" trilogy. Sam Rami the director includes one in all his movies, it was his family car when growing up,
                          so they make a Cameo appearance in all his movies, I also own a '61 Hawk, yet to spot one in a movie.

This would have been the late 70s or 80s. This bothered me the same way I hate to see monster trucks chewing up cars that will be of interest to enthusiasts a few years after they are merely used cars, but when this movie was made the Studebakers were already recognized and collected.

                            I know it is not much info to go on, but does anyone know that movie.


                            Thanks for any info,

                            about a week ago, they showed this movie, I wondered where all of the Studebakers came
