    Wasn't it Pogo who said, "I have met the enemy, and he is us!"

    As our favorite marque garners more attention, we can expect there will be more demand for parts, whose prices will increase. That's bad for those of us who need them; good for those of us who have them. Don't throw away anything.

    On a positive note, parts not currently in reproduction will start finding a need. We now have fiberglass 53 Coupes, M fenders and Lark fenders. Why not plated plastic 53-54 grills? They'll look fine for four or five years, and then you can just buy another set. Is anyone repopping the little baffles that control the air flow through the front fenders of the 59-60 Larks?

    A friend of mine is slowly toiling with making a mold to produce fiberglass doors for a Transtar; may or may not happen.

    Don't throw your parts away!

    What parts do you need that you would like to see someone reproduce?
    I think I'll start another thread.

    I figure the ridiculously high prices paid for some of those cars says more about the buyer than the car itself. We have people in this world that will pay $6 for a cup of Starbucks coffee, buy a piece of pizza that looks like Mother Theresa, battle over Brad Pitts smelly gym socks and will drink themselves to death on water trying to win a stupid video game. Sometimes I think the human race is our own worst enemy.

    quote: AHA! SO! The truth of the matter is you're trying to SUPRESS Studebaker prices! You's a EVIL man, you is.

    Not anymore. If I get another nice R2, Golden Hawk or the like, I'll do Barrett Jackson. I'd bet I could build a nice M series for under 75K. It looks like Ed Eliss's 50K at auction 4 wheel drive was the bargain of the century compared to the M series. Watch for nice Studebakers to come out of the woods once the results get around.

    Don't feel bad, Jeff. This gal was way off also.
    Thinking Walmart when I should have been guessing Niemann-Marcus.

    Congrats Anne and thanks Mr. Shaw for a great contest!
