    Sadly, I can remember when most of the real cars were new.

    Yes, the '53 "Starliner" was epocal ...





    Sadly the basic design had degenerated very attrociously before ran its course, like this 1957 ...



    Did I mention I that I remeber when these cars were new??

    The Avanti was a clever, original design ...



    But I was never as fond of it as the '53.

    When my Ma was growing up, a family next door built their very beautiful home atop a hill next door. The owner, Mr. R collected Studebakers and had them parked along the drive....Must have been a sight to see. (Sigh!)
