Filmed in 1936 at the Chevrolet Plant in Flint, Michigan.
Around the time Henry Ford was building his first car, so was Ransom Olds, father of the famous American Oldsmobile. License your content worldwide with Janson Media http://www.janson.com But it was Ford who would establish the forty hour working week within his factories and introduce mass production via his moving assembly lines, heralding a new era for industry. The United States embraced the motor car in a big way, and by the mid nineteen sixties, no one walked anywhere anymore. The country that gave us the shopping mall also gave us the parking lot, and drive-through convenience. It seemed like just about anything could be done in a car, from watching movies to dining to traveling long distance, as with the popularity of the motor car came Motor Inns, also called Motels!
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine was brought back to life and driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013 the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life. This truck was built on May 23, 1945.
This 1959 Studebaker pickup is a four-wheel drive three-quarter ton sent across the country by Studebaker to generate fleet sales, with a NAPCO conversion.
DISCLAIMER: This is my first attempt at a YouTube video. Please don't flame me too hard. Anyway, this GT Hawk is something rather special for obvious reasons. That is why I thought that she deserved her own YouTube video. I hope all of you enjoy! Also, if any of you would be as so kind as to check out my Patreon, that would be much appreciated.

This documentary I managed to pull out of the bowels of the Internet not too long ago. It was supposedly first aired on the Discovery channel, but I would take this with a grain of salt. It's still very good though!
