    More than I'm sure you're willing to count! Try the old penny in the jar for everytime you swear. That lasts about an hour. Then toss it out because you can't be bothered to spend half your day looking for pennies.

    You will especially use them if you scratch the new paint.

    I have a 1963 Hawk here for an example of how it should be put back together. How about you save yourself the trouble of reassembly and sell me your car for cheap.

    I'm guessing there will be a finely woven tapestry of profanity hanging over Stockton for some time to come.

    Just take it easy and use a lot of tape when putting trim against that new paint. Ream the paint built up in holes before forcing bolts or clips. Don't hesitate to walk away for awhile and regroup if it's not wanting to co-operate with you. I fought a 57 T-Bird front bumper for about a half a day, took a 30 minute Harley ride and came back and put the bumper on in about 15 minutes.
    Good luck and what a beautiful car.

    If it gets to frustrating, just go inside and look at the history of Studebaker on your walls! The GT looks really good.

    Invite your mom over to watch you reassemble it. Guaranteed she'll take a count of how many you use!!

    Sometimes it's not the quantity of cuss words, but the quality. What used to be "four letter" words are now common vocabulary and used extensively on TV, and not just cable/satellite.
