    Jim,
    Attempting to "normalize" the behavior is simply another one of denial's "thousand faces"

      Warren,
      We need to get Joy and Lorena to hang out soon. Lorena wishes I did not own the 1 Stude I do have. Maybe Joy could be a good influence on Lorena.
      Do not get me wrong, I am in no way complaining about my beautiful wife. I am very fortunate to have her. She has put up with so much for 25 years now from me. I have spent fortunes on racing habits. Been hurt many times, serious surgeries from racing, broken bones, months off of work and lost income. All on top of my Bi-polar disorder and a long process of understanding that and finding the right Doc and meds to help...yet here she is, still standing next to me, happy to be my wife. Frustrated with me often, but still loving and kind to me and patient.
      But as much as loves seeing beautiful vintage cars, she does not like seeing any money get spent on one. She is a very frugal woman and cars are frivalous expenses for her. She was born in South America and is a very simple person, not simple minded, she is an RN and very bright, simple of eye. I wish I could be more like her in that way. I just get these pictures in my head of projects and I have to build it. I have really simplified my life in the past 2-3 years and even more since my work injury in mid 2010 that has had me riding nothing but the couch, but my mind still loves building things, hence Oscar was started and the wallet has been opened...and every dollar disputed by my lovely wife.

            There are 2 bench seats there now from the wheelwells back that can seat 2 each. I have to inquire on how legal that would be- seat belts? booster seat for the grandkids, ect...

                Congrats again, Warren; it looks cool.

                How nice that the Studebaker-exclusive identification has survived.

                You're in for a good time. Keep us posted. 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.
