    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.

    It says, "eight cylinder, automatic". Am I missing something?

                    Back in the early 70s I took my Champ pickup to an old Studebaker dealership in the north part of Boston. Thye had two very sad-looking '58 Packard hardtops sitting on their used car lot. One was purple!.

                        I've actually laid hands on this particular 58. It belonged to a fella that was restoring another 58 Pacakrd Hdtp and he kept this one as a possible donor. I would surmize that he's sold the project car (it was never gonna get finished and he knew that) or has met his demise (I hope not!).
                        He also had a 59 Lark hartop that he wanted to sell me for $500. Supposedly, it ran good. Of course, it needed everything cosmetic.[:I]
                        If I can find this guy's PH# in my mess here, I'll call and find out what's happened to the resto Packard and the Lark. The Packard he was restoring was a primo example to start with and the only thing that kept me from giving it a home was the $5500 price tag. I thought it was too much for a car that was roll-worthy but had everything except the sheet metal in boxes.[V]

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