    well I've had that 289 in there is a Ford argument about a hundred times

    another one I've heard is that a Lark only came with a 6 cylinder when the person making that argument was standing next to a '62 Lark VIII

    I've also heard that a Lark was a Rambler and that a '50 Starlight coupe was a Ford


    But people misreading car's is not just limited to Studebakers and Packards, I have a '78 Plymouth Super Coupe (Volare) and I even put a big MOPAR Decal on the back windshield because everyone asked "Thats a Chevy or a Pontiac right?", I still get asked that even with the big decal on the back! Some people are just plain ignorant even when things are blatantly labeld

        John, you're supposing people know how to read. Not always the case, it seems.

                You might tell them that the 289 Studebaker weights 650 pounds and the 289 Ford weights 460 pounds. How could the parts interchange.

                    One other element may feed the "Studebaker always used Chevy engines" belief: Young bucks looking at engine parts catalog listings see at the end of the Chevrolet listings this... (65-66 Studebaker) using the same parts...and we all know the conclusion...

                        Studebakers attract the "car experts" and people who knew or were related to some one that owned car just like the one you have. If this had been half true Studebaker was the second best selling car in the USA. If ignorance were money car shows and swap meets would be full of millionares. The fact is that a small amount of knowledge or worse wrong information tends to upset people that have a real understanding of the cars they own. My grandfather told me its of no use being stupid unless you can show it, best way to do this open your mouthand prove it.

                                I know that both of those examples are not real cars, but names can be confusing sometimes. I owned an Imperial that was not a Chrysler Imperial

                                Was it an Imperial made by Chrysler Corporation, or a Humber Imperial that was made by Rootes Group; a wholly owned subsidiary of Chrysler Corporation?
