When we were 17, we were visiting our family in Northern Ireland when a cousin asked, "How big is your car's engine?"
"5.7 litres? Your insurance must be astronomical!"
Of course, those 5.7 litres produced a nominal 145 horsepower. We love it when the Irish look at American cars and gander at 'em in a way that we Yanks simply can't. The Belfast Telegraph recently did just that with Studebaker and taught us a few things we didn't know about the marque, including Virgil Exner's involvement with Raymond Loewy's design team. Plus, how can you not love a company that once produced a model called the Dictator?
