RE: #81302 - the Studebaker building.
Historically the symbols were considered the (American)Indian good luck/good fortune sign. It could be seen almost everywhere.
It was that way until it was corrupted and became the sign of evil.
The legs of the symbol are turned the opposite direction of the Nazi swastika. They are for good luck.
When I was assigned to Misawa AB, Japan in 1957, our Tac Recon squadron used the RB-57. They were subsequently replaced by RF-84Fs, and before I left in 1960 they were using the RF-101.
Cool action shots with the Hustler! This is what I think of when remembering this plane...speed in every aspect.
Correct, a quick check of the internet, this symbol goes back well over 3000 years, long before Nazi Germany.
And yes again, in most all cases, it's a good luck symbol.
Also, the legs have been used in both directions meaning much the same thing, along with four dots within the legs.
One thing N.G. "sometimes" did was to rotate the symbol 45 degrees. Just like Hitler...take something good and make it a bad thing..
The question is...why did Studebaker use the symbol knowing about Hitler ? Or...since Studebaker was around before Hitler took over and built Nazi Germany...did they use it back that far and just not get away from it ?
Hope you don't mind me posting some stuff from the KY archives. I went through the entire set of Lafayette Studio images a few months ago looking for Model A and AA images and found these.
I've been holding on to these pics for a while because they require some work to get them in an appropriate size for posting on this forum. The original images are between 5-8mb! That being said, they are some of the cooler most high resolution pictures I have found of Model A's.
I would suggest that if you like a picture, click on the link below it to take you to the original image on the archive's webpage. From there you can zoom in to see an amazing level of detail that is fascinating for people who like the minute details.
That's it for now; I'll post some more soon!
Ain't that the truth and every mouse motor is from a Corvette and all Chevy station wagons are Nomads
What ever happened to Smith, as in Merrill, Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith, or for that matter, why is this is the first I ever heard of Beane.
He was traded for an offensive lineman and a couple of draft picks.
You know your career is over when your name disappears from the letterhead and the building.
For our Sweetheart Denise I dedicate this song:
I was thinking of that song these past couple of days because of Denise Diplock.
Me Behind the Wheel, 1969 Mara Lake BC
Good golly Miss Molly!!!!----By now, Denise has got to be informed by SOMEONE---How famous she is on the HAMB!!!
Nice action shots of an awesome aircraft, had a model of the Hustler hanging in my room when I was a kid. But That crew is going to have some explaining to do to their commander when he finds out they got all settled in their plane, engines running then realized they parked their car in front of the plane. DOH!!
I was thinking the same thing. With all the people on the HAMB, someone here has to know her.
