studebaker's lazy "S" logo

OK, I am helping my friend tear into his 36 studey and I commented on how I liked the "S" logo. He smiles and said it was designed by ...?... Also this guy designed a bunch of stuff. To name one was Shell oil's logo. What was this guys name? This is probably real easy, but I didn't know it so here we go.

With a wife that collects Coca Cola stuff, this was fairly easy. Raymond Loewy, a fascinating read if you get the time. Got to work in the morning, Prof, hit us again.

1940....

In 1940, why did the U.S. govt. re-open the competition to Ford and Willys/Overland to make their "jeep"?

If I am not mistaken Bantom built the first but it was to small of a company so the army bid out a new spec which Ford and Willys both bid on. It seems I heard that Willys beat Ford because Ford followed the military specs and disigned a completely new vehicle and Willys bent the rules so they could use their existing engine. Thus, they offerred a larger vehicle for less money. The Army looked the other way as far as the specs went and awarded the Contract to Willys. Ford did however end up building the Willys design also because of war demand.

337 ci, about 850 lbs; the 8EL engine was used in Lincoln's and the 8EQ engines were used in large trucks. This was after the war in 1948. However in 1931 Chrysler had a flathead straight 8 that measured 385ci that they put in their Imperials. Second however, in 1953 Dodge built a 413 ci 6 cyl flathead for their larger trucks. They built only about 3000 of them. Something about ripping the drive sprockets off the crank. Probably a warrenty issue!
If I'm right someone else take it. I'm traveling.

I did the paint and body on a 32ish Lincoln sedan years ago. HOLY COW that sucker had some big chassis and drive train parts! That big old flatty sitting there was only equaled or surpassed by the axles and brakes! They were HUGE! It looked like parts from a friggin semi!

These are with out a doubt a pair of 1927 "Happy Daze" Commercial Ice Cream Churn Rotator Paddle assemblies. They are both right and left units missing the all important "Swirl-O-Matic" louver plates. The '27' unit had color-coded louvers because they didn't interchange. This was rectified in 1928 much to the delite of all the Unionized and Non-Unionized Ice Cream Workers of America when "Happy Daze" made interchangeable plates. The new plates also were pre-adjusted for "Skim" directly from the factory.
You can tell what they are from the scum in the corners and the trail of ants.

Brian are you sure? I'm pretty sure I can see Happy Daze stamped on one of them.
