Not a Studebaker in Sight

We attended Twilight Thursday at the Sac Zoo last night. There were plenty of great classic cars, but not a Studebaker in sight. "Doc" could have held his own, for sure.

Building 85 - Studebaker, South Bend, Indiana

I happened upon two impressive photos today. One is of the interior of Studebaker Foundry Building 85 in 2006. The other is of Building 85 in 2007. This building was demolished in order to make way for Ignition Park, a tech hub. The scale of the building as well as the soft light within the dire environment is striking.

From there, it went to a couple of Pontiac dealers in Pennsylvania before another Pennsylvanian, Don Barlup, bought it in 1973."
