                  Alan,

                  Nice talking with you yesterday (I was the guy who asked you if this was "Grace") as you were removing the PA plate. Your car is beautiful and truly deserves the award. And a great story!

                    Wow, after seeing all the near perfectly restored cars yesterday, I can see why this was a dream come true for you. The AACA does a great job boosting the hobby. I hope because of your win you do not stop driving your car and allowing others to enjoy it almost as much as you do. What you have done is monumental as there were many Studebakers at the Hershey show. I truly enjoyed all of them and yes your story should be in TW.

                      Yes, Alan, why not?

                        Ditto all the previous congratulations, Alan. I remember admiring the car at Lancaster; a beautiful job and worthy of the awards. BP
                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                        Ayn Rand:
                        "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                        G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                            Very cool... the story and the win.

                            You have an excellent command of the language. Kudos on your writing skills!
