YAK Car(s) Pic of the Day

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a pair for you — a 1963 Studebaker Lark keeping company with a Chevrolet Corvair Greenbrier van from the early ’60s. The Stude was in the throes of a death rattle — the last car made by the once-proud South Bend, Indiana automotive pioneer rolled-off its puny Hamilton, Ontario Canada assembly line in March of 1966. The Corvair vans didn’t fair much better; more conventional vehicles from Ford and Chrysler (and eventually, GM itself) finally did it in. This unlikely pair was spotted a few years ago in an Elma driveway.

    That Studebaker looks a lot like the car the Russian KGB Agents were using to follow Rocky around in Rocky IV during the training sequence.
    Hollywood omission or good ol Russian reverse engineering?
