This morning I went and picked up a R1 engine.It turns over so a rebuild will be taking place someday.Got home from that and got a call from the fellow who bought the '57 wagon that was for sale at Hooked on Classics.The one there was a thread on a few days ago.He asked if I would help him get it home so I tagged along driving the support vehicle that wasnt needed as it made the journey just fine.Speedo is off by 20 mph!!! Noticed that as I followed him at 40 mph and he later said the speedo was reading 60.When we got back to his place he handed me the keys and off down the road I went for a spin.Nice gesture on his part.
Spent from noon until 4pm disembowling Studes at a salvage yard for grins and giggles.Not a bad day when the windchill is 7F:D

Well, today was a "preparing for Studebaker day..." had two people come by to pick up some dirt so I got about another four feet cleared off of one side of my driveway... (don't ask, previous owners were eco-nuts, but I even got some free plants out of the deal)

Only another couple more days like today and I might be able to park another car in my driveway! Also got a line on a '53 Ford 2-door sedan that I need like a hole in my head, but the price sounds right...

Leonard you crack me up with those photo-creations of yours LOL. My Studebaker day consisted of going and getting a few parts for the Lark and working on the Studebaker section of my site. 1958 is up for your viewing pleasure.

I visited a portion of my fleet today, used my GT Hawk as a repository for some stuff (it has a car cover on it) and sold a decent truck cab to a fellow from Pittsburgh that will help bring an E-40 back to life.

LOL - Thanks Leonard! Actually, I was thinkin' FRONT section with the rear door ports even with the tractor seat, the A-pillars cut completely away so that the very frontmost portion of the hood would hang out over the tractor's cowl. The only REAL problem is that the door posts aren't tall enough to let me stand up when I wanna dismount the 8N![xx(]
