Studebaker



Today we look at another of the classic autos that went belly up. Studebaker was one of the premier badges in the auto industry. They started in the mid-1800's making wagons, and then make electric cars in the early 1900's. They then went on to make classic gas powered motor cars. They went belly up in the mid-1060's.

  1. Indiana, in particular Indianapolis, was the 'Detroit' of America pre-depression. The Great Depression wiped them out. The Stutz car factory still stands today and is a haven for various artist types. That and several of the great mansions of the guys who created those marques is about all that remains.

  2. Consumer Reports consistently rated them #1. I never understood how it was that they folded.
