OK, I know how some of you feel about Wikipedia, but I've been working on the Lark article there, and I'd like everyone to look at it and let me know what you think. Since I can't work, blogging and Wikipedia have become a nice way to keep my mind active.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studebaker_Lark

I do try to make sure that what I write is correct, and Lord knows I've got lots of sources, what with all of my books and TW issues from years gone by. It ain't perfect, I know, but I want people to learn as much about our favorite cars as they can stand!

Good job Jacob![^] It is kind of neat that anyone can do that, but can get very wrong, when it is not done correctly! [:0]

I think I updated some '57 and '58 stories that were way off base, because lots of people THINK they know what they are talking about, but do not!

You must have spent a good deal of time researching the info to get it that good. [^]

I almost thought you had it wrong when I saw that the Lark was built from 1959 to 1962! But then I saw you have prefaced it by showing the correct Corp. name of the Co's that built them! A bit of an unusual way to say it, but nonetheless correct![^]

Well, actually Rich, the company names were something that was already there and I haven't yet done anything to that. I don't think that part reads very well, but I'm going to come up with a solution, possibly as soon as I finish this post. Check back and let me know whatcha think!

EDIT: I changed 'em. Let me know if it reads better; I'm tired and it looks good to me, but that's just me! [:o)]

I have a problem with it saying that the Larks were built from 59 thru 66 in Canada. Granted, that's true, but they were built in South Bend (the main factory) from 59 thru 64 as well.:D

Thank you, thank you very much! I've portrayed myself over the years as a Hawk nut, but I just love that Lark, and I wouldn't mind adding to my fleet a new dimension in motoring, perhaps the compact with Performability. What's that? A compact? Of course not, it's far too roomy! A big car? It's far too convenient!

Sorry, couldn't resist a few advertising catchphrases. I'm glad you like the article and that I've been able to correct some things that needed correcting!
