          Hey...it just makes it easier to swap the battery back into the lawn tractor when needing to mow the lawn!

          Nice trick flipping the car over for the lower engine shot though!

            Geez John, you stole my thought and comment. Seems like a lot of trouble to flip the car over for a pan shot.

                        Not only that, but that battery has two positives and no negative side!

                          Wow! I guess Palma wasn't kidding! The listing has now been removed. So if you plan to list any Studebakers, make sure they have a battery hold down in place.
