The inline 6 cylinder engine in that Studebaker probably weighs about the same as a Model T. That guy sitting on the hood is gonna look like Slim Pickens riding a missile when the rock let's go and heads for Planet Earth.

Seeing the Studebaker on THE ROCK reminded me of when we did it in 1978.We were on the HCCA National tour in Yosemite and took the drive to Glacier Point and with us in period 1906 attire we couldn't resist. We meaning L to R Steve Lehto, Dan Erceg and Me. The only problem was we didn't get the right camera location, so you don't get the full effect. Very disappointing pictures. We hadn't planned enough in advance and were so concerned about climbing over the fence, not getting caught, and taking every step very carefully (it's a loooooong loooooong way down) We set ourselves carefully down and didn't move until the pictures were done and then moved slowly back to solid ground. Boy, what a view! And, I have to admit, what a shaky feeling being way out there although it doesn't look like it from this angle.

I would recognize that hansom mustache anywhere Ed. Didn't you drive your '06 Locomobile on that tour?
It doesn't look like you hurt the Rock any.
Nice to see the photo.

Olliver Lippencott was the first to drive a car in Yosemite. Although folks had been taking photos on that rock for years he was the first to push a car out there on his 1900 visit. The car... Locomobile steam car.



Olliver was a plus sized individual and is not in this picture.

Dallas you're right. And since as Richard said we were in our Loco mobile we followed suit.
