#366 of 375 One last, small Wagonaire thing
Apr 26, 2013 (2:33 pm)
Since we had talked Wagonaires, I thought it was funny to go out to my mailbox today and find a huge '64 Wagonaire postcard (ebay link is the exact postcard), with "Bill, thought you might like this one! Be well, Mimi and Ed", written on the back. Sent to me from my hometown Stude dealer! I bet I was the only Studebaker postcard-receiver this month in the U.S. that got a real Studebaker postcard in the mail...from a Studebaker dealer! LOL

So did it have a 4 cent stamp on it - just kidding!

Now if it had that short-lived air suspension system from back then, it might have been pretty new when it "dropped".

Heck, I wouldn't allow something as beautiful as that 1958 Cadillac to die.

I posted that as much for the author as for the pic. When that book was printed, a 58 Caddy was just another junky used car that was way too thirsty for what people imagined in the future.
A 58 Caddy with air suspension would be pretty cool. The 58 Caddys wear the gingerbread better than other 58 GM cars.

The car matched the title--how could the author resist punning on the word "drops"?
Ah, that was a much simpler world back in the 1980s.

Last Sat. evening I went to an annual 'cruise' in Mayfield Village, OH, where the typical draw is 800-1,000 cars and I'd say there definitely was that many. Beautiful weather. Two folks from our Ohio Region Studebaker Drivers' Club brought their '64 Daytona convertibles--one black, one white, both in beautiful shape--2 out of 703 production!
But what I'm posting about is--there was a '57 or '58 Cadillac Sixty Special where from about halfways down on the rear door, down and back, the car was entirely chrome! Even my friend with the '62 Coupe deVille said, 'too much chrome'. I'll have to look online for a pic to see if it was a '57 or '58. I'm thinking it had four headlights.

Did you see Wally and the Beaver while you were in Mayfield?

I'll tell you, this part of Mayfield was way more congested than the Cleavers' street!
