  • Proud NON-CASO

    I do not prize the word "cheap." It is not a badge of honor...it is a symbol of despair. ~ William McKinley

    If it is decreed that I should go down, then let me go down linked with the truth - let me die in the advocacy of what is just and right.- Lincoln

    GOD BLESS AMERICA

            Look closely, Bill; that appears to be a retouched Regal Wagonaire, relieved of its single-spear side trim to "be" a mid-year Standard, per the Studebaker script on the front fender, also likely brushed in....but if so, they did a good job neutering the glove box arrangement to look like a Standard, too.

            If it is Rose Mist, it's a dead twin to the one I "sold" our church's Pastor in early summer 1963 through Snider Auto Service in Indianapolis...whereupon they took in trade his horribly worn-out (but only two-year-old), 1961 Falcon 2-door wagon. Man, it was rough.

            They moved away six months after buying the Standard, but it was well on its way to repeating the Falcon's fate. Like the man said, they don't call 'em consumers for nothin,' you know! BP
            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                When I blow up the picture, it looks like a 47-49 Champion.

                    • Great looking Beechcraft Twin Bonanza. I love those 50s factory paint schemes.

                      "That's no scheme, thats a conspiracy", he replies.)

                            What are the vertical lines on the horse? Possibly artifacts, I can't tell.
