    'Love the President and like the Lark; very nice! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    I like the President. If I was there, I probably would have bought it. Best of luck with it. My first Studebaker, of more than 50, was a 1957 President Classic.

    On the Lark, I noticed the Pilon name. I have two close neighbors, on the same side of the same street, by the name of Pilon. I do not think that that surname is very common (at least not around here). Does Patrick Pilon have relatives in Wappinger (Wappingers Falls, NY mailing address)?

    My Great Grandfather was one 7 kids I would say there is a good chance they are related, although Pilon is French Canadian and in the Quebec and Montreal area I think the name is more common.

    Love the 1957 President, beautiful color combination. I have always admired the 1957 models, since new.
    Good luck with her!
