    A Nash Ambassador could get 600 miles to a tank of gas??? Either they had one heck of a tank, or modern hybrids ain't got nuthin' on them![:0]

    Also forgot to mention that Jeffery Nash's first automobile offerings (1902) were called Ramblers.[B)]

    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1963 Cruiser
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe
    1957 President two door

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      Maybe it was a typo, a "4" instead of a "9." A major blunder in an otherwise interesting article, for sure.

      Side hybrid comment, Biggs: Many of us visited Duffy's Classic Cars in Cedar Rapids last week. They had this sign on a couple muscle cars:

      <center>This is a Hybrid Car: It Burns Both Gas and Rubber</center>

      Cute, I thought. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        That fellow seems a bit confused. An "Ambassador 600"[?] If I remember correctly, the Nash 600 was a much different car from the Ambassador. The 600 was akin to the Stude Champion, and was named for the supposed 30 MPG that it got sipping fuel from a 20 gallon tank. The Ambassador was more substantial, and powered by an OHV straight 8 before the war, and an OHV six cylinder after, as opposed to the wee "Flying Scot" L-head 6 cyl in the 600. Just one more hypothetical question, though... Say you are bombing along in the 600 at about 40 miles an hour, downhill, with a fair tailwind, achieving the magic 30 MPG. The odometer rolls up exactly 600 miles since your last fillup, and fifteen seconds later you chuggle to a stop. Total distance covered: 600.4 miles. So, do you marvel at the fuel economy as you're walking to the gas station? Or, do you curse Nash for not adding a little reserve so you can achieve your 600 miles... and make it back to a gas station? Maybe you are fed up with the whole works, and trade the Nash in on a new 1954 Lark. Just some food for thought...
