    The Lincoln carriage is in the Studebaker Museum, but it is not a Studebaker.

    Sorry, just when I thought I was onto something too...
    Why is it (the Lincoln carriage) at the Stude Museum?

    Because, years ago, the Studebaker Corporation bought some historical carriages. Studebaker Corporation donated their collection to the City of South Bend with the provision that the City properly care for and display the collection.

    [blue]Look at it this way....
    If JFK had been in a Studebaker wagon instead of a Lincoln Convertible, he wouldn't have been shot.

    And if Lincoln had a Lincoln instead of a Studebaker carriage he wouldn't have gone to Ford's Theater. Because:
    A: He would have been afraid of the "iron horseless carriage"
    or
    B: He'd be out cruising.

    Thanks all!

    The Linc is a doll; the Diva of the group... all the rest are refugees- saved from the crusher, demo, or just further deterioration

    I love so many different types of cars; I've had Corvettes, Camaros, T/As, Mustangs, Mopars, you name it... I still love them all... but I have a soft spot for the under-appreciated every-day workhorses... I figure there are plenty of folks to look after Vettes, etc. and preserve them; but history needs examples of the cars that were slogging through the snow to work every day while the 'Stang was sitting in the garage under a cover...

    Even still, my family never had Studes when I was a kid... I can tell you why I love and collect Lincolns, but no idea why I love Studes-or wagons-or especially Stude wagons... just know I do...

    Bams,

    The problem is you offer refuge to misfit toys. The Lincoln is a nice car, but it doesn't quite classify as a misfit toy. This just shows your heart really belongs to misfit toys - the Studebaker. The good news is that there's no known cure!

    You did the right thing.

    Don't beat yourself up Bams. One is only naturally drawn to the sleek lines of the Studebaker!

    It's not procrastination; it's priorities. Besides, the weekend's not here yet. Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are Studebaker. Friday can be the Lincoln.[^]

    CAUTION: This is Sick!!

    OK, Here's the scenario:

    I have a beautiful 65 Lincoln Convertible- 35K miles, excellent condition; I love this car!!... pulled the engine to reseal, inspect, and detail... ready to go back in...

    I want to use it this holiday weekend; got out of work early, so the plan was to get it in and buttoned up underneath tonight...

    So what did I do? Instead of working on that, I found myself out in the Stude wagon with Glass Plus and a roll of paper towels cleaning the seats and dash just to see how well they'd clean up....[:I]

    Working on a Station Wagon that probably won't even see the road this summer, instead of the Convertible that would be perfect for the weekend...

    What's up with that? [:0]
