    Really sorry to hear of your troubles Roy. I wish I had the money to come look at your cars, I am spread to thin to even consider right now but I would love a car someday.

      Ouch. Two 1950 Commander Starlghts; woo-hoo!

      Nonetheless, 'sorry to hear of the conditions under which they're for sale. BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

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

            Hi Roy,
            There is life after divorce, but I wouldn't wish a divorce on my worse enemy. Hope you & her will both be OK.
            What kinda shape is the 64GT in, and how much are you wanting for it?

              I have been through a divorce and the death of a spouse. They are both traumatic, in different ways. You will get through it, I am now remarried for the third time. I'd love to buy one of your cars, but I'm afraid I would be looking at divorce myself... (just kidding, my wife would support that, I think... I just don't have time or room for any more projects). BTW, also intersted in GT if it is available.

                      Sold both a 57 Silver Hawk and a 64 Avanti as a result of a divorce in 1984. Don't know the serial numbers for either car. Both were in very good condition. I wish I knew where they were. Miss the cars more than I miss the divorced spouse. This too will pass. Good luck.

                        Sorry to hear this Roy. If you haven't already stopped and thought this through, then, do so. When my x and I divorced, the first thing I did was to sell many years of rare parts collection and 54 classic cars I owned. I was sick. BUT, not as sick as I was later, when I realized I reacted too quick, and lost a ton of money, as well as all my "STUFF". Just be careful.

                          Sorry to hear the bad news Roy,
                          Don't know how old you are but I'm 49 and can't imagine being single in today society.
                          That being said I'd be a lot more pi$$ed about having to walk where ever I went ???

                          Just Kidding, Hoping to at least cheer you up a bit !?!

                          Dean.

                          Ps.
                          There are too many fish in the sea to worry too much about one little piece of tuna,
                          Studebakers on the other hand are rare.

                            Divorce is like an animal chewing its own leg off to get out of a trap. Good Luck. I've had some experience with that kind of thing. Got a good woman now (12 years), and the cars are all back.

                              "Looks like" doesnt sounds 100%. If its something you can work out, forget the cars for
                              now and see if the two of you can "Reinvent" your marriage. Sometimes getting every
                              issue that both of you have kept bottled up out into the open can help the other to work
                              on fixing it. Too many couples break up because they "put up with" instead of fixing what
                              was wrong. You loved each other enough to get married, perhaps it can be repaired.
