    That's a modern picture, actually - taken in Palm Springs. Zoom in on the Vette and you'll see the black plate reads "1964". I know the owner of that Studebaker; he restored it to mint from an absolute junkpile.

    I doubt that the "crown" has changed, but I do know that a very long telephoto, such as this was taken with, will will exaggerate it as happened with this shot.

    x2.
    I started reading this post 2 years ago ,and as I'm retired was able to start from the beginning and also read the last pages until I had read it all. But I'm retired and could spend several hours at a time ,most people can't do that . So some reposts are actually being seen for the 1st time by these guys, and sometimes it nice to see a post that you had forgotten.

    They call that body style - which came in two door and four door with either 1100 or 1275 cc engines and four-speed or auto - the "ADO16." It was designed as a larger version of the Mini. I recently sold my 1966 MG 1100 to a collector in Canada. It was very reliable but it was also very well taken care of with only 30,000 original miles on it. The 1100s had the same A-series engine as the original Mini - a transverse four banger with the transmission in the sump which shares the same oil as the engine. The most common model in the United States was actually the Austin America which was a 1275 cc engine. But the MG was much better looking.

    I've just read in Hemmings Classic Cars that Frank Hagerty,the founder of Hagerty Insurance ,and the restorer of this car died on March 18th ,aged 79. RIP.
     
  29. And to add to this, we here on the HAMB are privileged to have people like you and Gary, who are willing to share your memories from that time period. Thank You!
     
  30. Add me to the comment posted above. It was nice to be raised in a time when commercials didn't have to have a disclaimer posted in fine print. We didn't need disclaimers or warnings. If you brought it and got hurt or the product wasn't worth a crap, you just move on without trying to find someone else to blame for your screw up or bad choice.
