A Forgotten Icon

I think just about anyone over 50 will recognize the picture below as being the front end of a 1950s Studebaker.  Jet planes had just been invented and Studebaker wanted to mimic one with their car. It might not have been an icon in its day but is becoming one now.

One thought on “A Forgotten Icon

  • My wife’s dad and grandfather worked at Studebaker. And her dad was there to “turn out the lights” when it closed. Her first car was a Hawk. Interesting that in a recent set of security questions on a web site one question was “What was the make of your first car”. There was a drop down list to choose the answer. Studebaker was not on the list. A form of ageism? I guess they did not expect some older-timer to actually want to create the log-in.
