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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

    Here is a 1952 in the opening shot of "The Lucy Show" with guest star Joan Crawford. It is the full episode but the Studebaker is only in the first 2 minutes to set the story.

    They probably bought the car for $50.00 back then for the show.

    The new episode of Fast N' Loud last night had a '64 Wagonaire in the background. I spotted it on eBay a week or so ago....
    I kinda wish they would have built it up instead.

    Nice day to all.
    Interesting that it has painted headlight rings. The only 51's that came that way were the bottom of the line "custom" models. Certainly not the convertibles which were all Regal models.

    Thank you, Ed. It was an exciting time. I'm not surprised you missed seeing the GT Hawk because it was on the far left side of the screen and just for a moment or two. Nevertheless, it's cool to see.
