    John,

    I'd forgotten to close the rear vent windows and when the President was at the critical transition thru the sound barrier, the shock wave caused a pressure differential that broke the instrument glasses![:0]

    BTW, for any of you that are guessing, I did this with overinflated bias ply tires. Radial's grippiness proved to be a hindrance after Mach .5

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

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