Studebaker - The Complete History

I received a great birthday present: Patrick Foster's "Studebaker: The Complete History." I'm enjoying the approachable writing style, great photos, quality paper stock, and hardback presentation.

From the author's website:

"Rife with triumph and tragedy, brilliant moves and boneheaded decisions, Studebaker's decades of building cars makes for a tempestuous saga featuring some of the more interesting characters in the twentieth-century business world. But, above all, the story features cars that, for countless Americans, truly defined driving: not just the Champion, which rocketed the company back to the top in 1939, or the 1950s Raymond Lowey-designed Starliner, deemed a "work of art" by the Museum of Modern Art, but also the Hawks and Larks that so many drivers loved."
