At an earlier location of the venerable Austin Speed Shop. 50s Studebaker pickups are my favorites.
1952 Packard 200 Deluxe Touring Sedan, powered by 288ci straight-eight paired with a two-speed automatic transmission. I photographed it at Austin’s Lonestar Round Up custom car show. I think it’s happy to see you!
This Idaho 1956 DeSoto Fireflite 4-Door sedan is powered by a 291ci Hemi V8 making 185 hp, propelling its 4000 lbs to 60 mph in ten seconds, topping out at about 105 mph and getting 12 mpg in everyday driving.
I was on my way to Washington State and got a number of excellent pics in Glenns Ferry, Idaho. Generally, I avoid the superhighways as much as I can, preferring to go through the center of the small towns and down the two lane highways. My satellite navigation allows me to select those back roads and still get to where I want to go.
