While searching through the back files I came across a post I made on 12-21-2006 where I stated that I built my 259 for "under $1000.00." Not sure where my head was at that time, but it should have read under $2000.00--and that was with me doing everything but the machine work. I apologize if I mislead anybody and hope that if I make some boneheaded statement like that again, some of you out there that know better will quickly let me know how full of s..uh, manure I am.

I would not have notices since I've done them for under a grand. (Just rings, rods, mains, gasket kit and machine shop labor.)

OK; I'll bite, I've never heard that one before. What meaning does Mea Culpa have? Spanish? English?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mea culpa is a Latin phrase that translates into English as "my fault", or "my own fault". In order to emphasize the message, the adjective "maxima" may be inserted, resulting in "mea maxima culpa," which would translate as "my most [grievous] fault."

HA,HA; I don't know Jeff, got a Studebaker "Doctor of Motors" Degree, and an Associate in Arts Degree in Auto Mechanics not a Medical degree, so I don't know nuttin about Latin! When I get in trouble I usually get called worse than that! LOL! :D

Obviously you fellows weren't altar boys when you were young (or maybe you aren't old enough to remember). Mea Culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa, comes from the Confitior (hopefully my spelling is right) which is from the Catholic Latin Mass of St. Pius V. Its where we ask God and our brothers and sisters for forgiveness of our transgressions.

See, you don't just learn something new about Studebakers on this forum!! Is this a great site or what!!???

The only Latin phrase I remember is "Sic Transit Gloria", which translates to: "Gloria threw up on the bus". :D

(I don't remember what the REAL translation is.)

Dunno about a doctor or lawyer. Working toward becoming a biology teacher, all I need is the latin prefix and suffixes [:P]. All of them Polychaetea and Coniferales and things :D.

I am afraid I didn't learn that phrase in church--it came from my ex wife's lawyer. His translation seemed to be "its all mine." And hey, PlainBrownR2, are you allowed to say Polychaetea and Coniferales on this forum?

Far as I know, yeah. They're two biology names that identify a marine worm and your average Christmas tree in Latin. :) Polychatea(Bristled-Worm), Coniferales(Conifer order). I could start in on the coporolites, but I may need the soap, lol.

Did you know the scientific name for the American Robin is "turdus migratorius"? Sorry, I guess that was not Studebaker related... unless one is flying over your Studebaker and demonstrates why he got that latin name.
