  • Need a '39 Champion on your way to Cedar Rapids?

    It doesn't look too far away if you are coming from the west. Click on the little picture of the Champion in the sale bill to enlarge. It doesn't look all that bad. 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.

    Is an "aluminum house trailer" a mobile home, or just an enclosed trailer? That guy had some collection on that farm. [:0]

      Well, he certainly was not a loyal 1-brand farmer! Got a little something from most every machinery brand. I'd guess he just liked collecting stuff and maybe only a portion of it was what he used to farm with.

      That Champion does look like a pretty decent barn car. Hopefully he had cats.

        If you'll notice, the utility trailer sitting next to the champion is made from a Studebaker truck bed. Wonder if there are other items not on the list?

          I think the 2 door sedans were the most attractive/best proportioned of the early Champions. Maybe something about the big "greenhouse"?

          This one looks very nice. Good enough to wash it and drive it as is. [^]
