Stand By Me - Movie - Studebaker Champion

The movie Stand by Me debuted during my adolescence and shaped some of the adventures that my friends and I sought in the nearby suburban wilderness… though none of our travels mirrored the dramatic events depicted in the movie. The movie is further solidified as one of my all-time favorites by the recent discovery that one of the cars in the film is a 1950 Studebaker Champion.

The driver of the Champion unfortunately lost the race in the movie, but seeing a baby blue Champion in the film was a thrill regardless.
