    Hot Rod Magazine is having a vote for favorite covers over the years.
    June 1954 ,March 1957 , November 1962 , June 1963 ,January 1964 and a few others are Studebaker related. I have almost all HRMs since 1950 and there are many great covers, but here is a chance to make a few more people see Studebaker as it was.

    My all time favorite is the May 58 with the Packard Hawk on the cover, but it only has 3% of the votes. The March 57 is a good one too.

      Arrgh... I spent 15 minutes on dial-up getting to look at the June 63 and Jan. 64 covers, hoping to see Larks, and no Studes at all[xx(][|)] Wish I had that time back.....[|)]

          Having seen your magazine collection, what do you mean by, "almost"[?]

            OH. You said Hot Rod.[)] Sorry, I don't have any of those.

            Love them whitewalls on the Avantis

              March 1963 is a good one on the Avanti R3 and the January 1964 is a good one on the Lark R3. If I'm not mistaken both of them have great articles on the racing performed at Bonneville in each of these cars. An interesting feature on the Lark R3 is the photo shown partial wire looms to hold down the spark plug wires such as that on the Avanti, minus the chrome plated covers.

              That said I guess I should follow Chicago tradition and go grab a shovel and head for the nearest cemetery. I gotta go find some "friends" to vote on some of the HR magazine covers [)] [:O)]

                  Speaking of Mag Cover Cars, don't forget the December 1963 Motor Trend. Cover shot and a good center spread article/road test on the 1964 R-2 Commander. I'm confident this car is a "magazine" spec. built car with the added white stripe and Halibrand wheels with white walls and optional(?) guage package. Looking at the article pictures "on the track", I'm sure glad mine dosen't handle that way in the turns!![:0]. If someone has that issue, please put it up for others to see. Unfortunately, I don't have the expertise to do that.

                    Interesting to note how many of the makes listed on the Consumer Reports magazine cover are no longer being manufactured.
