        • I've just watched State of Siege, a 1972 french movie directed by Costa-Gavras. There are plenty of US (even several T models) and European cars and these two Studebaker Trucks.


          Nice day to all.

              Thanks for your concern, Nox.
              I browse this Forum once a day usually. But you might have already noticed that I post only if I have something to say (well, at least I am trying to!).
              Night night to all.

              • Wow! Still wiping the Tears from watching Post 768 Video, it was hard to see the E-40 Red Stude. Truck and all those quick shots of the '51? Champion Custom 4 door!

                That MUST have been a Great Movie, that everyone but me has seen!

                • The Born Losers (1967), a grade B biker / action movie starring Tom Laughlin as Billy Jack, a quiet guy that sometimes has to fight.

                  In this scene, Pop has to bail junior out of jail, and in a moment of frustration Pop pushes junior against the decklid of a pretty C coupe as the bikers show up. Overdubbed in French.

                    • Not exactly in the movies, but yesterday's CarFix featured a 37(?) Coupe Express. It's modified though, but is running a 289 Stude engine with p/s, a/c, Holley Sniper and a rebuilt McCulloch Supercharger. Looked pretty nice. It's on Season 9 Episode 6 on the MotorTrend station.

                      • I saw that episode yesterday as well. Nice looking truck. Had a wicked looking dash update. Those gauges were sweet. I think they bogged the description of how the McCulloch supercharger operates however. I wish they had spend more time on the truck. It really deserves a second episode.

                        • Watched Netflix "Iceman" last night and got a twofer:
                          At 5:23 a Lark and possibly a Wagonaire in the background

                          • I've just watched Thieves' Highway. A 1949 film noir with Richard Conte.
                            US6s are figured prominently here:

                            • Christophe,
                              Thanks for posting as I am avid US6 owner. In fact I am putting into service my 75 year old US6 snow plow this winter in order to clear the inevitable snow we will no doubt receive. Thanks covid as I usually winter in Arizona and don't have to deal with the white stuff.
                              Cheers, Bill

                              • You're welcome, Bill. You can watch this movie at archive.org if you want to see more of them. In one scene, the needle of the speedometer was flirting with 80 mph! I found this highly unrealistic unless a very low rear end could be ordered., which I doubt. Best of luck with your snow plow. I'd love to see (and hear!) one of these US6s in the flesh, unfortunately none of them seem to have made its way to France.
                                Nice evening to all.
