Here's my Stude Lack-O-Lantern. I don't think I've seen another orange bulletnose, have you?

I have to say it..."Orange you glad you drive a Studebaker?".

My apologies to the punophobes out there.

Hi Mark,

I'm afraid we're going to have to miss this one. There are too many other demands on our time right now. I hope you and the other VISTA members enjoy yourselves. Are you going to drive Mr. Green Jeans?

Just remember to top off the fluids, check the tires, drive it on a occasion, and supply it with a new candle every now and then. [:o)]

Alright, we'll have to keep the pun volume down or the webmaster will 'SQUASH' this thread.

I thought after I carved the windshield that I should have put Fozzie Bear behind the steering wheel, then I noticed I forgot the wheel completely! Or maybe you can't see the steering wheel because the windshield is fogged up due to pumpkin seeds plugging up the defroster ducts.

Mr. Biggs,
On another topic, I agree with your opinion in your TW article regarding the 51 horn ring and button like that in my Land Cruiser. It's beautiful. I often sit and admire it while I wait at a stoplight pretending not to notice everyone looking at my strange looking car with a bullet for a nose. I can almost hear them saying, 'Land Cruiser? That doesn't look like a Toyota to me."
