Aaron Severson over at ateupwithmotor.com shines a light once again on orphan cars.
This time he's written about some of Studebaker's most handsome vehicles in an article called "The Once and Future Coupe: The Loewy Coupes and the Studebaker Hawk."
At Torq-O, we pulled up the rug and slid through the trap door searching for some media to help him tell his story. From the Torq-O Media Archive, here's some celluloid that hasn't been seen since 1953.
Check out Aaron's story, and then slide over to Torq-O.com for more Studebaker content!

popular-yet-short-lived "local" Los Angeles television series. For some
reason, I can imagine King Kai driving a car like this.
