    Very pretty! Maybe it's "expressi"?

        Actually, Scott; the correct plural is Coupes Express because Express describes Coupes.

            Thanks, Bob! I'm glad you set us all straight on that one. Must be derived from French grammar.

              Bob,
              Isn't it a proper noun? The model name is Studebaker Coupe Express.

              Wouldn't it be 4 1949 Buick Roadmaster Rivieras, not 4 1949 Buick Roadmasters Riviera?

              I know three guys named Doug Smith. That's three Doug Smiths, not three Dougs Smith.

                    No one bothered to mentioned (because they likely did not know) that the first truck (the yellow '39), is on the longer wheelbase President Eight chassis. Not a factory product but nonetheless neat! There is also one 1938 on a President chassis in Calif. It was first shown at the Sacramento meet in 2003.

                    By the way I vote for Coupes Expresses! Or how about Express Coupes?

                    Here's mine. I have a meet in my driveway every few days. No travel expenses, no motel bills and I always win best of show.

                      I think Bob is right. Coupe Express, as noted above, is really sorta based on romantic languages, where the adjective follows the noun, like attorney general (the plural is attorneys general). So only the noun, coupe, gets the plural "s". Riviera may have started out as an adjective, but was used as a noun (originally to mean 2-door hardtop) by Buick and the rest of us.

                        The Buicks are a good example, Kurt, and it would indeed be four Buick Roadmaster Rivieras, because Roadmaster describes Riviera, just like Express "sort of" describes Coupes.

                        (I.e., you could also have Super Rivieras, if you remember). BP

                            Though I really detest red, the yellow and red ones are my personal picks. LOVE the styling on them. Could never afford them and I have been told the leg/headroom are tight for someone my height, so wouldn't likely want one anyway. Doesn't stop me from admiring a beautiful vehicle though! I think these beat the El Camino any day!

                              Couple of questions: Were the sealed beam headlamps on the yellow '39 correct or are those 1940? Also, enlighten me on the different designations for the two '38s...President and Commander? I drooled over these at the Zone meet.. all are fabulous examples.
