    Dave Lester, is that you in the cut-off jeans?

    So, as mentioned originally, I had some issues with the starter solenoid in the car after the parade as it wouldn't engage & complete the starter circuit. The solenoid appears to be new but may be a cheapy replacement. So today I go to the local auto parts store and ask the rookie counter guy (he's about 30, but has only been doing this for about a month) for a starter solenoid for a 1964 Studebaker. Now guess what his first question was??? "Who made Studebaker?"
    LOL, I love that question! My reply was "Studebaker made Studebaker." I hope I didnt offend him by laughing, but it strikes me funny everytime I am asked that by a parts counter person.

    Be very, very careful what you ask for!:

    Of course you know that Kristi and I will still ride in it, stars or not. But, if you insist on wearing the hat, please don't expect us to dress up like Rosco and Flash......
    Don't be silly, I would never expect you to dress up as Rosco and Flash.....but I do expect you two to dress up as Enos and Daisy Duke. As to which of you wears the tight cut-off jean shorts, perhaps the two of you can flip a coin for it.

    You just got this car, and are already having too much fun with it. I think that's what it's all about.
    The blue spray can finish looks so nice from this distance, I think you should go ahead and do the rest of the car. Of course MI to MN is quite a distance....

    Actually, now that your all practiced up with the blue, the red should go on pretty nice.

    Maybe since you were a kid at the time we can refrain from slapping you with a wet Stude. Mud Flap, THIS time!

    I bought a set when I was in South Bend at Plant 8 Warehouse in 1966 and it must not have been much longer that they ran out. They were very limited Production I think a different Vendor made them and '65's went back to the original design with all of the sharp bends in the inboard corners.

    Thanks for pointing that out Rich as I hadnt even noticed a difference in shape nor did I know that they manufactured two types. I just photgraphed the difference between a set of NOS that came installed in the car and my used set that I installed. The difference is very noticeable now.

    Thanks Matt. I painted those headlight buckets back in 1991 when I was a twenty-year-old using a very rusty 1964 Daytona hardtop as a daily driver. Soon after I parked the rusty car but kept it all this time and am now using said headlight buckets from it, twenty-one years later! It pays to keep junk around.

    That's what Kabchef did to the rear fenders of his Transtar after a blown tire took out one fender.
