Studebakers & gas pumps

Oh my gosh, this has to be a photo stylists dream shoot come true!
But no, it just happens to be my brother-in-law Dave's collection of Studebakers...

and vintage gas pumps. 

Can you imagine stylizing a photo shoot for a family of school age kids...
and dressing them in vintage plaid outfits, carrying metal lunch boxes from the 50's, 
and holding a shiny red apple for their teacher
and walking single-file in front of this Studebaker school bus! Oh be still my heart.

Love the dinosaur Sinclair pump... but how cool is this pegasus Mobil gas pump!

But my favorite... Dave's '60 Studebaker Lark that he towed back from Phoenix a year ago.
He has several other Studebakers in buildings throughout his property, 
but the lighting made it hard for me to photograph.
Wished you could have seen his Avanti, but it's being painted. 

I love the patina on this Shell gas pump.

Dave stores his prized Studebakers in metal quonsets on his property.
Did you know I also have a thing for old vintage trucks? I do.
Can't you just see his '50 Studebaker on location at an engagement shoot...
along with an old picnic basket and a vintage cooler filled with bottled pop. Love, LOVE!

I also love the photo shoot that you just made. What is really love the most was the pictures of the old gas pumps. It really looks so great and very amazing.
