    What ever happened to the good old days?back in 83,84 the town got after my Father for having about 15 Studebakers,some his and some mine.they said he had a (JUNKYARD)and had to get rid of all of it!well being that he never sat down to any authority,he quickly did his home work.went to the townhall and said to the fella,I see you drive a late model Buick Lasabre and can get any parts you want at the drop of a hat!,I can't so I intend to keep those Studebakers exactly where they are.here's the best part-he tells him according to the State we're in (CT.) a junkyard sells to the public,I do'nt.they are fenced in and can'nt be seen from the public,I'm not fenced in and can be seen by the public.and the 3rd was something to do with being or not being easy access from a major highway,what ever it was we were the opposite(3 STRIKES AND THEY'RE OUT!)and then goes on to tell the fella,did you know this State has a provision for taxing me on non registered motor vehicals? as the man started chokeing for words my Father said(NOW DO SO AND GET OFF MY BACK,OR I'll SEE YOU IN COURT!!!)we always figured the town did'nt want to spend money in court,and they dropped the whole thing and Dad never heard another word!boy those sure were some good times.

      Bob, if you get bored with that 4-speed set up, I'd be willing to adopt it and give it a good home .

          I have been hauling around a 4 speed out of an Avanti on the floor of my rollback for 4 years. May be time to clean out the truck and do something with it.

            Here's the deal. I've had a number of requests for parts from this thing + knowing that it's probably a rare car, the way it's configured - is there anyone that want's to offer me something for the WHOLE car??? The original bucket seats and console are gone as is the radio and glove box (vanity). But it's a pretty solid car (as Wagonaires go) if someone were interested. I even have a straight, solid RF fender to go with it as the one on the car's a bit bent. $1K and it's yours. Otherwise, I part it out. It's worth more as parts, but if someone wanted to save it..... Factory 4-spd, disc brakes, power tailgate window. ALWAYS a California car. Sold new outta Fresno.

              Bob, if this was September, I'd be all over that. I'd love a Wagonaire and add to it that it's a 4-speed....[]. Unfortunately it's not September, so...

              I hope someone gives it a good home with the idea of restoring it. There can't be to many 4-speed wagons that were built, let alone still surviving.

                There are some people who just can't keep their noses out of other people's business. My first inclination would be to cut their extra long noses off, but I guess one would get in less trouble for kicking them in the [expletive deleted]!

                  Bob, I'm glad to see you're starting by offering it complete for sale first before parting it out. If I didn't already have enough irons in the fire, I'd be serious about it myself. I certainly hope someone does jump on it to restore as its definitely a rare one!!

                    I agree that it's a good thing that you're giving it a chance to survive. I would love to have it here, but $2500 with shipping is just too much for me[V]

                    I hope someone can jump in and save this car. I believe I heard somwhere that they've stopped producing these

                      Well, I posted that "ad" yesterday, the 29th. If I don't get anyone stepping up by May 7th, I'll start responding to inquiries for parts.
                      It made me sick to watch as the other Wagonaire body rode off into the sunset two days ago (I wish I'd had a camera, because it literally DID ride the back of the scrapper's truck into the setting sun.[V]) After they turned and disappeared down the main road, I mentally replayed my decisions as to what to keep off of it and what to let go. The rolling chassis' still here. I kept it.... well... 'cause I could. From what I was told, it's rear axle's sick inside and the front suspension's tired, but it has that X-member frame and it's solid and straight. Too, it's less of an eyesore and is fairly easy to move, given it's still on wheels. Maybe someone will come to it's eventual rescue. I don't want to, but I sorta doubt it. Maybe it'll go the way of the body after my body gives out.[B)]
