    SORRY GUYS!
    I should have inserted the E Bay link so that EVERYONE would have know bout it. item # 190248082668 Not sure that this is good now that it has ended, I'm just a plain Ga boy raised in Alabama so don't get mad with me.

    Sounds good, even though I have no idea who "Jim" is, or anything about the car. Anyone care to let a Lark fanatic in on the secret??[]

    Bob, this is about that nice light blue '64 Cruiser that was just on e-bay from Virginia. I think even you had positively commented on it.

    Thx Paul,

    I indeed have never seen the car in person, another collector friend (Chevelles, Vettes) says I'm crazy to buy Studes sight unsen, however I've always found our group to be honest & describe a car "just like it is"! It is gratifying to hear from someone like you that it is a "stand up" car!

    Yes, I considered driving it home, but so much can happen, lots of "exposure" as my insurance man says.

    Congratulations Louis, she looks like a beauty at a very reasonable price. I have a soft spot for 4 doors as well, much more practical for people moving. [^]

    O K guys, I've always been a sucker for the 4 dr Cruisers, always took one as a field car when reg. mgr @ Stude - they're comfortable!
    I know, I know, 4 drs don't sell like hardtops. This one I will most likely keep as a driver & take to shows & club meetings etc.
    I've still got "black lightning" w/the LTI Vette drivetrain(62 custom Daytona street rod hardtop) & figure at my age (70) I deserve some comfort. maybe I'll sell the hot rod. (my excuse to the wife, besides SHE can drive the Cruiser too!)
    Jumped off the bridge & paid Jims price (where else can you get a car that has been restored by White post inside & painted outside for that kind of money???) however I now need someone that is going theu Martinsburg to drop it off here in Atlanta just south of the Atl airport (1 mile off i-75) Anybody coming this way that needs some extra dough? (Contacted Pegs but not got their quote yet)
    Congratulations. You have bought one fine car (I know it personally). You will certainly find it to be one of the most comfortable cars ever.
    Why don't you just catch a flight to Dulles and have Jim pick you up. Then you can drive the car back to Atlanta.
    Keep us posted.
