    Indeed he/she will, Steve. The 1956 President sedan (also not a Classic, just a straight 4-door sedan) offered by Ed Reynolds at Studebaker International for $10,500 would be a much better buy...you'd have over $100,000 change! BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            I believe the $115,000 is just a typo. Should be $15,000. IIRC that's about what it sold for in Omaha, and bid just short of that when it was on eBay. I thought the one for sale at South Bend was very nice...but not as nice as this car. $15,000 doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

                    Wow! I didn't realize that the Canadian dollar had lost so much value! Must be worth about a U.S. dime then?!

                            As of yesterday, one Canadian dollar was worth $.940379 U.S. I like to use www.x-rates.com). That is a long ways from when I was buying tractors up north and the Canadian dollar was worth 65 cents.
