My lovely wife surprised me this morning with a Production Order (Birth Certificate!) for my 51 Champion. I had no idea that she even knew these existed. She must be lurking on the forum or reading my TWs after I'm done, without my knowledge. I'm a lucky man in so many ways.

Anyway, with a Birth Certificate in my possession, my Stude is now legitimate, and there are no doubts about it's parentage or origin!

Thank goodness your '51 Champion is now legitimate. Who wants to drive around in an illegitimate car?
Congrats.

Aha! Well - smart wife indeed. Now that your car has "papers", there's no worry of deportation back to South Bend (or Vernon in your case).

What was it's "birthdate"?[:I]

Yup, I'm lucky. With papers in hand, I now know that my Business Coupe's birthday is April 5, 1951.

I know I'm not Paul, don't tell me. That's about what it took for me to get mine. Maybe closer to the 8 weeks.
