Getting in the Mood for a Central America Roadtrip!
Here are a couple of video clips featuring the Studebaker Lark vintage commercials. To get you in the mood for our upcoming blog posts during our Central America road trip this summer. We will be departing in late July and driving the 1960 Studebaker Lark (featured in earlier posts in 2006) from Costa Rica through: Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico to San Diego, CA. Then we will drive it across the US to the east coast. We may need to make a few pilgramage visits to the Studebaker museum and Studebaker aficionados along the way!
First video below is the Studebaker '60 Lark commercial featuring Mr. Ed, their sponsor. Lark was promoted as a roomy compact car, which it truly is.
Second video below is a commerical featuring new Larks and their "performability".
