  • A 'few' US6's

    I've come across quite a few US6 pictures lately. Thought I'd share a couple of them at least.

    And people always say that Studebakers are easy to find in parking lots... HA!

    Must have been the trucks meant for the Lend-Lease program.

                Did anyone notice in Ken Burns recent WWII epic that there was indirect mention of lend-lease trucks to Russia? While that tidbit of narrative was being said, there was a clip of a US6 with the Kaytusha rocket launcher on it that was doing it's firey job. I sorta held my breath to see if they'd mention Studebaker, but all they ever talked about was the Big 3's contributions to the war efforts.[V]

                No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    I saw that episode Biggs, mentioning the big 3's contribution to the war effort. Never once did they mention the contribution the independents made such as Nash, White,Studebaker and Willys to name a few,which was substantial.

                        The last 90 seconds of 60 min had a Andy Rooney piece. Premise ... you cannot tell todays cars by their looks. Not one Studebaker in the flash back segment which was poor as everyone could tell a Stude from the crowd back then.
