    Okay, I'll bite here. Some may say that I'm so much of a CASO that I don't even know what CASO means![B)]From what I can glean from the usage of the term CASO, it means somebody,or a repair method that somebody has used or is using,that is improper, half-a**,Jack-legged,Mickey Moused,'billy-rigged,homey rigged or an otherwise improper use of methods, materials,or a combination thereof,including but not limited to duct tape, wire ties,bondo, silicone or Silly Putty.[}]And no I don't know what those letters stand for.Maybe one of the heavy hitters or the Grand Poobah himself can shed some light on this.Hope this helps.Have a great day!!

          I thought it meant "cheap ass Studebaker owner". Like to be frugal with your spending.

            Dave's got it right, dummy. (hey! you said to call you dumb!)

            A CASO (not CASCO) is the sort that'll go to a Stude swap meet and dig thru a plastic bin of used Studebaker parts in search of used outer A-arm bushings that kinda-sorta feel like they might have 10K miles worth of life left in them. That way, they can brag that they got bushings for 50 cents a set instead of springing for new ones at $40 bucks a set![B)]

            BTW (means By The Way, Bob), I got a package from SASCO yesterday. When I looked at the return address it hit me that SASCO encompasses the letters to spell "CASOS" as in CASO plural. [:0][^]

              Ok every one , and thanks now I see, sorry for getting the letters wrong, sometimes my fingers move faster then the brain, I have met a few of the CASO people in my years of dealing with Studebakers by not that many, most know what they want and and are willing to pay a fair price, thanks again....Bob

                      Well what about trucks then? I figured co-owner cause all Studebakers weren't cars.
                      But hey I could be wrong it happens.LOL

                        Oh, OK.... I didn't read it as CO-Owner. My bad. I guess that makes Lisa a CASCO.[:X]

                        Possible greeting... "Hello. I'm CASO, she's CASCO."

                            Yeah. That's sorta what I meant, Bob. The few times you've blessed me with a free part, I had to check an' see if I'd been "violated"![:0]
