  • Benefits of custom paint on your Studebaker <GGG>

    Indianapolis SDCer Phil Brandt's 1956 Golden Hawk is well-known for its unique, custom, salmon-colored scallops.

    Phil recently took his Hawk to an Annual Reunion of the now-defunct Westlake Beach Club on Indianapolis' west side. This facility provided an enclosed beach and party area for families and teenagers back in the 50s and 60s. It's been gone a long time, but old-timers like to gather and reminisce about its glory days, when it was The Place to Be (I.e., "Be There or Be Square" ) for west-side Indianapolis teens.

    An amateur photographer noted the color common to this year's Official Reunion T-shirts and Phil's Golden Hawk and set up this cool photo:

    (I'm not sure about everyone else's monitor, but mine makes the car's scallops appear darker than they are. The scallops really are virtually identical in color to this year's T-shirts...and, yes, that is an older Chevy station wagon with surfboards on top, next to the Hawk.)

    Cool beans, Phil; well-done. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

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

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
