I found this 1958 Studebaker Provincial Wagon in the parking lot of Manhattan in the Desert in Palm Springs. I love station wagons and this is one fantastic classic wagon. It had a ribbon dangling from the rear view mirror for winning a “Best Fins” award at a recent auto show.
The “T T” on the tailgate and rear side panel stood for “twin traction,” sort of a limited-slip differential – very sophisticated in the 1950s. Enjoy!

1958 Studebaker Provincial - note the TT badging as well as those fantastic fins.
Notice the vintage luggage in the cargo area. Nice touch!
This wagon was big and heavy. It's a great classic car. Love the chrome logo hub caps and white side wall tires.
The interior was beautifully restored too. Hard to get a picture with the windows up.
