  • My favourite film "American Graffiti " has a Hawk "cruising". That film is the reason I bought an Edsel

    • There's quite a few Studebakers in that film, such as the non-Hawk -55 with the girls in...

      • Saw a pretty bad 1988 horror movie "Lady in White" on Comet TV the other day. One scene had an excellent side/rear shot of a pinkish or salmon colored '59-60 Lark 2-dr station wagon.

        • Saw the movie "Motherless Brooklyn" last night . A story set in New York city in the 50's . A good flick with lots of street scenes and interesting cars of the 40,s and 50,s. A principal character is chauffered in a Hudson. Not sure but I think a finned Hawk drives buy in the first 20 minutes or so. Anyone else see it? What does make an appearance several times is a green Lark 4 door. Since the movie is set in the 50,s, they are likely thinking it will pass for a 59. It may well be, but I am sure it has 60 parking lights installed!! Can,t pull the wool over my eyes.

          • My youngest daughter saw "Ford vs. Ferrari" last night with a friend. She said it was really good. She also mentioned that during the first five minutes of the movie there's some kind of comment about Studebaker. Something like, "Your car drives like a Studebaker." I don't know the context, so I don't know if it was a compliment or an insult.

            She like the movie so much, she wants to see it again next week with me. I guess I'll find out about the reference then, unless one of you sees it and finds out for us.

              SO the Studebaker quote was in reference to the mechanic telling a customer, "If you don't know how to drive a performance car, maybe a Studebaker is more your liking.."

              While using the name of "Studebaker" was an insult, there were quite a bit of the Studies roaming around in the movie with a few in some lengthy scenes.

              In the movie, I did quite enjoy the flyover of the Beech 18 and my admiration for Carol Shelby went up another level as he was depicted doing the flyover during the Mustang roll out. Car oil has a particular smell, but oil for radial engines has a unique and yet addicting smell one I've been hooked on since I was 5.

              They insulted the Mustang as well, calling it a "Secretaries" car with an inline 6.. Glad Mr Shelby and I had the same likes.
