The Studebaker National Museum is marking the Studebaker Proving Ground’s 90th anniversary with an exhibit titled “Proving the Product: Studebaker’s Proving Ground.”

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2apH72K ) the exhibit features images and videos chronicling the proving ground’s long history as an outdoor laboratory.
