        Well done. Refreshing to see a positive historical perspective without the recriminations and "what-if" second-guessing negative productions we've seen in other attempts. Good to see Studebaker presented as a contribution to the future of the region by way of legacy and not dwelling on regrets.

              Thank you, Bob. That was one of the best done videos on Studebaker that I have seen.
              On my pass through it, I only noted two items; 1) They imply that Lincoln had a Studebaker carriage, which he didn't. & 2) They refer to the Proving Ground as a plant which it isn't.

                  Wasn't the Barouche Lincoln rode in the night he was executed a Studebaker? Who did it belong to?

                    Studebaker Corp. purchased it after Lincoln's death and it is now in the SNM, but it is not a Studebaker.

                      Now back at the Studebaker National Museum; but it was on loan last year to the National Museum of American History.

                      "The carriage that transported the President, Mary Todd Lincoln, Major Henry Rathbone, and his fiancée Clara Harris to Ford’s Theatre on April 14, 1865.
                      The open barouche model carriage was built by Wood Brothers in 1864 and was presented to Lincoln by a group of New York merchants shortly before the president’s second inauguration.
                      Clement Studebaker bought the vehicle from F. B. Brewer of New York, who had acquired it from Robert Lincoln, the president’s son, who sold it shortly after his father's assassination." --National Museum of American History

                        Very nice!
                        Part 1 (7:50) loaded and played without interruption.
                        Part 2 (4:56) did a lot of buffering; but that's an issue with my PC and DSL.
                        I'm letting part 3 (9:00) load while I go do other things.
                        Really nicely done.

                          In the book 'Killing Lincoln' , it says that Lincoln gave the coach driver the night off, and drove the carriage himself, that night to the theater. I assumed that it was accurate. Has anybody else ever heard of this?

                            Wonderful, Bob; thanks for the link(s). 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.

                              Thanks Bob! This was a very good production focusing on the future and Studebakers hand in this future. Bill
