Weekend Reflections: Starlight Coupe
Behold Studebaker's 1950 Commander Starlight Coupe. It's at the National Studebaker Museum in South Bend, Indiana and it's one of my favorites.
Isn't she a beauty? And that name ... awesome.
Bonus shot. These radiator caps came on a lot of early models. They contain an open gauge so the driver can tell if the engine is about to overheat.
There are loads of gorgeous, beautifully crafted cars in the exhibits, and the hood ornaments are to die for. Unfortunately, the place is so dark that few of my photos came out well. If you're ever in town and love cars, you'll want to stop in. Here's the website: http://www.studebakermuseum.org/
