Liberty kickoff cruise. Nicer than people expected it to be
This is a ’61 Studebaker Lark four-door sedan. This little car is a regular at car shows all over the area, and the owner always displays it with extras like the Studebaker fender cover, information boards, and so on. For most people, a Studebaker Lark was pretty basic transportation in its day—think of it like the Nissan Versa of the early ‘60s. But like many things, it’s getting better with age. Now it’s just an interesting old car; a window into the way things were more than 50 years ago. Will a stock Nissan Versa ever be as interesting as this Lark is now? I kind of doubt it, but you never know, I suppose.
As it turned out, it really wasn’t a bad night to be out there. The temperature didn’t turn out to be all that cold, and it never did rain. You can see pictures of all the cars and trucks that were there while I was there in the slideshow below, or click this link for a better version.
