Studebaker Pines Still Standing!

Illustration for article titled Studebaker Pines Still Standing!

Back in 1937, when Studebaker was still going strong (and 85 years old at the time, going back to their wagon-building days), the company planted 5,000 pine trees at their proving grounds outside South Bend, Indiana. 41 years after the final Stude- a Cruiser- rolled off the assembly line, the trees' message is still visible from space.
