    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Well, for sure I see the nose of a '53, about the fourth layer down, and a little to the right of the middle of the pile. And it might be a '53 sedan in the second layer, top left, just under the Pontiac facing the camera.

          What's amazing is that many of those cars weren't even 5 years old when that photo was taken

              I'm un-decided about two Studes,but see one for sure. ( I do see one car that has Me curious ) the white Station Wagon on the far Left a little more than half way down.what make is it ?,doesn't the rear door look quite long - compare it too the other White wagon a little further down too the right.and also does it look Pre - 59 ?

                Possibly a 56 sedan to the left of the panel truck on the lower right.

                  My first reaction was bolstered by the comments on that page - hard to believe this was shot in 1959. Too many cars just a couple of years old if 1959 is correct. Hell, my dad always bought 3 or 4 year old cars - he couldn't see payin' the price of a new one.
                  No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                    Wow I stared and stared at that pile a long time before I finally saw the squashed '53 C or K in there, some quite distant, fuzzy and on weird angles it is very hard to tell. I named all of them except that Clearly Stude. at first even the Hudson. There is just about every '55 to '58 make in there, plus more like a '52 or '53 Ford Coupe.

                    The top light colored Wagon on the left looks like a Buick with odd looking long rear doors and one below it is a '56 Chev.

                    But what has me puzzled is the Car with it's tail in the air on the very Top, just right of center, to the right of the 4 round taillight thing that looks like a '59 Plymouth Wagon, it looks like a '57-'58 Dodge or a '58 Scotsman, very hard to tell.

                    Then on level 3 extreme right edge, 2 Cars Left of the Ford Panel Truck there is that strange looking front end that almost resembles a '55 Stude. hood but the chrome bar top of the grille does not look right, more like the top of a '56 Sedan, so I can't figure that one out either.

                      I thought the exact same thing. Of course, back then folks often traded cars every couple of years. My grandfather did.

                            Looks like a '55 Buick to me, Joe, perhaps an airport car. The one below is a '56 Chevy.
