  • tailgate step

    I just saw a new commercial on tv,showing a step built into the tailgate of a Furd truck,flips down so you can walk up onto the gate!! Another Studebaker idea recycled!

        I saw that add today, and I thought to myself "Hmmm...this seems oddly familiar."

        They've been out of business for over four decades, and their ideas are still ahead of some auto manufacturers. Is it any wonder I love these cars?

            Furd must be targeting ageing Wagonaire owners who now miss their step!! How thoughful of them to include a foldaway assist handle!
