The Studebaker National Museum is a museum in South Bend, Indiana dedicated to the American automobile manufacturer of the same name, based in the same city.
The museum features a display of Fozzie’s car from the 1979 film, The Muppet Movie. It’s one of two Studebakers used in the filming and still has paint remnants from when Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem contributed their psychedelic makeover (Can You Picture That?). The museum is currently accepting donations to help them “restore this star to its former glory.”
This museum and car were featured in the Disney+ series Prop Culture, where host Dan Lanigan brings Joel Hodgeson (creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000) to meet the museum’s curator Aaron Warkentin to take a look at the famous car.
