  • The first 1964 Cruiser I owned was in the movie We Are Marshall that was filmed here in Huntington, West Virginia. I was driving in 2 scenes.

        • In the new season of the television series Fargo, one of the gangsters gets chauffeured around in a 1950 Commander 4 door. With the meticulous level of detail that show has in recreating the past, I have no doubt it was not only very intentional that this particular gangster is not yet being driven around in a Cadillac or similar luxury car; but also likely intentional that he's not quiiiiiiite up to the top of the Studebaker line yet either. Maybe someday he'll earn that extra 4 inches or so of rear leg room that a Land Cruiser would offer him!

          I'd attach a pic, but have never been able to figure out how to post one much larger than a thumbnail here. Any advice would be welcomed.

            • In a Perry Mason in the opening sequence, a guy hitches a ride in the back of a cargo truck going into a movie studio. When the guy hops out, there is a 62 White GT Hawk in the parking lot.

              • I'm not sure if I've posted on this thread before and don't have time to go through all 53 pages, so ....

                Back in 2006, my car was used in a horror/comedy film called Razor. I spent one afternoon and four cold nights from sundown to sunup in the desert around Lake Havasu City, AZ, where I live. The film was never released but in 2016 I found out it was available on iTunes. Now it's on something called Vudu.

                At the bottom of this page on my Bullet Nose Paradise website, there is a link to view the trailer and a place to rent the movie.

                • Not sure who wrote the script for this movie but they must have known something about cars. In one of the early scenes, one actor asked "Is that a Studebaker?" and the other actor said "Yes, and it has a flathead V-8 engine". In the burnout scene, a lot of smoke and audio from what sounds like a dragster, were added in the studio.

                  Here is a photo of them setting up to film on my first day. We did a few takes going down the westbound onramp to I-40.

                    Read the story about your car on your website, and enjoyed it very much. Very interesting mod on the trunklid, but could not find a pic of the finished/painted trunklid area. Great website, any folks interested in '50/'51 Studebakers should take a look!
