Note all the station wagons and four door sedans in the parking lot.  No Impala SS models in that lot!

No, there aren't  just Falcons and Valiant's. I see a Chevy II, a Lark and a Chevy wagon along with one other I can't recognize.

That's a Studebaker Commander between the Valiant and the Chevy wagon.

Are you sure? Commanders were discontinued in 58 and were a different body style in 64 when the model returned.

I can tell by the 1/4 glass window it looks like a 64 but I'm not sure.

Sorry but it still looks like a Lark to me.

I suppose some people choose to spend their money having kids, and some choose to spend their money on toys for themselves.

Yes, I can relate, that's why I commented.  For me, the Z-28 was replaced by a Cavalier station wagon.

Studebaker styling with the reverse looking C pillar stared with the Lowery coupes in 1953!  Stayed with them in certain models through the Lark series (same greenhouse, just different fenders and quarters!). May have hung around until 64 move to Hamilton Canada.

 

So, I will not say Commander, but most any 1953 to 1963 model!
