    • I don't know if all pictures in 7474 were from the same dealership but the last one was the front of Phillip Motors in the Morgan section of the Borough of Sayreville, New Jersey. A gal in my class of 65, Carol Jay, was the owners daughter.

      • "Now here's the good part: As recruiter, I was appointed Head Clown. I also dressed in a clown suit and would drive our family's 1957 President 2-door up and down Post Road, stopping to relieve each clown for a few minutes every hour so they could run to a nearby gas station and take a leak...and making sure everybody had enough supplies, pop to drink, and such."

        Well, that explains a lot.Esp in view of your future employment, hobbies, friends etc....

The premise was to inherit a bunch of money the heirs has to do all sorts of things and at the end, the joke was on them. The women is a damsel in distress who as it turns out is the daughter of the butler that was let in on the plot. She used the Studebaker to trap one of the heirs.

                                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.
