Right now there are two Larks on eBay; unfortunately I can't get a hyperlink to work. The two are the blue one in Land o Lakes FL and the other a convertible in PA. Does anyone know anything about these cars? Any history or are the owners on this board? I wonder about the FLcar with the salvage title. Doesn't that mean that it was a wreck or damaged by water, flood or other disaster? The ragtop looks pretty good but I can't see the deal with the 18 guage steel repairs. Any thoughts? bob.c

The best one listed, is the sweet little Red '60 Lark 2dr. Sedan, Std. trans. 6 Cyl. It looks to be fairly original, low mileage 31,000 and fairly loaded for a deluxe, F&R bumper guards, Back-up lights, Wheel Covers, Radio, F&R Window Mouldings, maybe it has a heater and Overdrive too, can't tell. It's just a bit pricey at $7,995.00 but he will take REASONABLE offers! [^]

Here is the link to it: http://tinyurl.com/2lflqe

It has this funny looking giant black license plate with enormous white letters and square corners! It must from Europe, is there a Europeon Country called VA? [:0] :D

That is the regular State of Virginia antique license plate. It used to be the only antique tag, but then they issued a yellow one that looks like a regular license plate, and now you can also use year of manufacture plates, so you have three choices.

Hi Leonard; I knew I would get a response from someone on the other coast on that one, of course I knew it had to be Virginia, but I have never seen a U.S. State Lic. plate that did not fit the National standard plate size and shape. It appears to have square corners and would not fit a Lic. frame, not to mention non-standard size numbers as well as looking European, just weird that they would do that! [:0]

Maybe they plan to pick you guys out with the Collector cars up there, driving them daily, more easily!

I think for 30 of the 31,000 miles the person driving must have been rubbing their feet on the clutch and brake pedal. Looks like quite a bit of wear...

Looks like a nice little car.

That wear certainly is believable; not necessarily for the miles, but for the car's age.

Imagine almost 50 years of not going very far, but being jockeyed around driveways, garages, and trips around the block; could easily add up to heavy pedal wear.

I find the tiny URL easier to use, and Dillo's idea probably would not work with Firefox anyway.

I like the tiny URL, because it does not stretch the whole post string wider than the screen, so those of us using Firefox have to scroll right to read it all.

Rich- The reason a URL stretches your screen making you scroll left to right is merely a setting that you need to change. In firefox, you go into "TOOLS" click on "LINK WRAPPER SETTINGS", and check "ENABLE LINK/LONG LINE WRAPPING"... then URLs will not widen your screen!

I've had MSN since I got my first computer, and this happened automatically. First time I used Firefox, I immediately dismissed it just for that reason- NO WAY I could stand all that scrolling left to right[xx(] My son heared me grumbling about it, took my laptop for literally 10 seconds, handed it back, and said, "Try that, Dad". Problem solved by genius, but non-car lover, son[^]

My original question was two-fold: any opinions on the Larks, and how do you get hyperlinks into these messages. The second question was a bit off-topic but only enough to be able to use the message board; the responses highlighted the many systems we use in trying to communicate on this forum. I've figured out how to get my iBook laptop toinclude the links, so thanks to everyone for their help.

One question I had was about the two tone blue Lark in Land o Lakes:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/studebaker-sedan-good-shape-motivated-to-sell_W0QQitemZ250203673536QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item250203673536

The Lark looks pretty clean but has a note about a salvage title; that usually means that the car was a wreck or an insurance write off, doesn't it? And do any members from central FL know anything about the car?

And a question about the pickup:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NO-RESERVE-COOL-PROJECT-POSSIBLE-SHOP-RAT-ROD-TRUCK_W0QQitemZ200190867537QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item200190867537[url]

Would a more up to date v-8 or 6 cylinder with automatic tranny fit into a chassis like this? I need to stay with an automatic because of a recent hip replacement...successful operation but a clutch is tough to operate.

Thanks again. bob.c

I shy away from salvage titles, not because of what it may or may not represent in the car, but because it is a very real problem getting the car on the road here in New York State.
