1963 was really Studebaker’s last full year as a full-fledged automobile company. Sure, the marque would go on through the 1966 model year, but ’63 was really the last chance for the South Bend, Indiana-based company’s relevance in the auto market.
Time for round three at Hershey’s 2018 event. As before, special thanks are due to Dave Smith and Sal Darigo, Jr. for taking all of these great photos. Some cars you may see again, in different pictures, simply because they were favorites of mine. You know the drill by now! Pictures and little to no text. So let’s go!
Since I posted the last Hershey photo set, not only has Dave Smith posted even more pictures, my friend Sal Darigo, Jr. was there too! So I have a whole bunch more photos, and why not share them with all you fine folks? So here we go!
As with the earlier post, this is simply a virtual tour, short on text, but long on most excellent photos! Enjoy.
Hershey is always a big deal to car nuts. Friends of mine have been, but not me. Well, my comfort zone, living in the Quad Cities, is a circle roughly between Des Moines, St. Louis, Chicago and Milwaukee. Within that circle, I can drive to a car show, concours, model show or whatever and still have time enough to attend, enjoy myself, have lunch or dinner, and get back home, all in the same day.
Fortunately, I have friends all over, and Dave Smith, a good friend of mine who lives in Connecticut, made the drive to Pennsylvania. As a result, he took many excellent photos. As a result, I was able to do a virtual tour from the comfort of my own home. As will you. This is, quite simply, a photo tour, short on text and long on great pictures! So sit back, scroll, and enjoy. And many thanks, Dave, you’re a gentleman and a scholar.
