  • Golden Hawk Displayed with Studebaker Dealership Logo

    I discovered the wall of the old Studebaker dealership in Kirksville, MO. Although faded, I thought it was a great backdrop for my '57 Golden Hawk. I also did the photo in sepia tones to add a few years to the scene.

    Very cool, Curt; 'good to have the opportunity while the building stands. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      Very cool.
      Here in Portland, Oregon the sign for the original Studebaker Wagon dealership is still visible on the old brick building on Morrison Street. It dates back to the 1870s I think. I wanted to get a photo of it with my 1950 Commander but the sign was painted near the top of the 4 story wall and there is now a freeway next to it. I just could not get both the sign and the car in the shot. I'm glad to see you able to put yours together. I like the B&W version.

          Seems to be on E Missouri Street, near 222 N Franklin Street, near Studio 1004 Modern Photography.

            Great Picture Curt, and very sharp looking Golden Hawk.

            I do think you need an Alignment though, it sure looks like you have serious Negative Camber on the Left Front.
            That usually means the Upper "A" Arm Bushings are worn out which have to be fixed first of course.

              I first thought the same thing,but can't help but wonder could it be something funky with the picture ???

                It's the camera lens used. Look at the line going up the building over the hood. Now look at the vertical side of the window over the trunk. In the real world, all verticals remain true. The picture is dimensionally distorted. Although with the second picture, which is much better, there still seems to be a little camber problem. Can't tell for sure with these photos.
