    I read a book on the history of the Studebaker company and in their prime they torture tested their cars to prove that they were the most reliable.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    There's a County Park West of South Bend called Bendix Woods. It's the Studebaker Proving Grounds (still!)
    A picture in it's heyday:

    And a fairly recent one:

    They were a pretty big deal around here with entire sections of the city's housing areas built specifically for their employees.

    For those that didn't know it, Mishawaka, IN. (sister city to South Bend) claims the AM General military trucks like these:
    Deuce-And-A-Half - Still refurbishing these at a South Bend plant!

    5-Ton supposed to replace the 2 1/2 ton - Also still refurbishing in South Bend

    And the Humvee - The H1 arguably one of the most versatile military vehicles on the planet!

    It was good enough for former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger! He visited the plant here to see the production line where his personal H1 was built:
