You are in the Classic Cars

I don't think you have to like Studebakers at all to appreciate that their Corporate office in South Bend has lasted this long and is being renovated--from today's South Bend Tribune (short video):
The heavy wooden decorations are in the President's office.
I was in this building in around '90, '07, and '12, and it had deteriorated some IMO between '07 and '12, but still pretty stately inside. In '12 I took my hometown Stude-Packard-MB dealer friend, and he remembered being inside it with his Dad many years earlier. I mentioned to our tour guide that my friend here was a member of the dealer organization. The tour guide got a reverential look and said, "Really? God bless you!" LOL

a 56 Chevy 2 door with a classic plate. Graphite silver front/white back.
Had a jacked up rear end with what looked to me like slicks.

We went away a couple of weeks ago for a few days holiday in Germany - flew down to Munich then picked up a car (sadly it was a Ford C-max as they 'upgraded us' from something more suitable) and then we drove round the Bavarian Alps, various Schlosses a bit of Austria and also the Black Forest. This was a regular holiday not car orientated, but we still managed to find a bubblecar museum in the black forest which was fun - I'll upload a few pictures shortly...

...circa 2000 dark blue Bentley Arnage going through the security gate at work. Either I've got a coworker who is really livin' large or he's some ordinary dude who foolishly bought a "white elephant" in an attempt to look rich for cheap!

You can get em for under 40K now, so I would wager the latter - price of a loaded Camry.
Saw a clean unrestored looking 67 Mustang , black with I think a white interior. Also a Fiat Spider moving under its own power.

...primer black 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air two-door hardtop with Cragar wheels near Summerdale and Oxford Avenue in the Oxford Circle neighborhood of Philadelphia. Looks like a project car in progress or a rat rod.

I like the Impala's length and six taillights, but in other ways, I like the '58 Bel Air hardtop even better--more restrained trim IMHO.

I've already made it clear to the family that I own the 'big' TV that time.
I saw a small clip already and there are supposedly people from every state there and also South Africa.
I think it would be fun to be there. That town isn't knowing what hit it! Like Woodstock.

It'll be interesting to see what they bring, seeing as many of the no-miles cars are still projects needing a lot of restoration. The effort in keeping the cars preserved would have paid off tenfold to the original keeper.
I think I had my eyes on a virtually no miles ~58 Cameo.
