Placed 6th in the All Around The Styles of Abandoned Automobiles Challenge by the “ALL AROUND THE STYLES” Group June 2, 2010
We stopped at a deserted farmyard just off highway 831, Alberta so I could capture some images it had to offer. Imagine my surprise when I found this gem tucked away behind a settler style shed. The stories this classic could tell about this time of innocence and it’s music would be worth a good listen for sure. A true treasure.
The Studebaker Brothers first started their wagon building business back in 1852, and by 1900 they were the largest auto manufacturer in the world. It’s indisputable that Studebaker played a significant role in transportation technology. For example in 1902 Studebaker manufactured an electric car, and Thomas Edison bought one of them. Some people hear the name Studebaker and think of the vehicle, or more specifically, the bullet nose cars from the 1950’s. Other people speak of Studebaker’s innovative, forward thinking (unique) designs and engineering. However, it seems most people remember the Studebaker because of its craftsmanship, reliability, power and high gas mileage for its day.
It’s now 2008, and this marks 156 years behind the historical Studebaker name in the vehicle manufacturing business (wagons to automobiles). Recently, Studebaker Motor Company moved its headquarters to Westminster, Colorado, and at the helm as President and CEO is Ric W Reed, who endeavors to raise funding for Studebaker concept designs, engineering, prototypes, safety testing, certification, manufacturing and distribution of production vehicles, to include motor scooters, motorcycles, passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, and quite possibly limos and taxis.
