      Always nice to hear about a Studebaker getting a chance to shine. You'll probably generate all sorts of questions and hear lots of stories if you hang around there while it's on display.

        It will be there through the 24th of November and is the coolest of the five cars there. The cars in the exhibit are a 55 Buick, 57 Studebaker Golden Hawk, 65 Mustang, 66 Buick Wildcat Convertible and a 68 Camaro Convertible. It's a truly nice exhibit and I personally believe the hawk will be the star of the show. Again thaks to the dealer for all of the free publicity for the museum.

        If your interested here's the link to the museum's website: http://www.americaonwheels.org/

        Big Studebaker Meeting there on Saturday when the Keystone Region will hold a meeting there.

          Stories like..."yeah, I had my new '57 Chevy wound out on a rural road...late at night...an' suddenly this here Studebaker Hawk blew my doors off...goin' a hunnert an' thirty miles 'n hour...in second gear...gitt'n thirty-five miles per gallon!"

          (I'm old enough to have heard most of them. They are very entertaining when they are repeated with conviction...with a Don Knots kinda voice and swagger.)

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

            Ayn Rand:
            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
