    I guess I was never nice enough to care about other people's political opinions..

    But like Mom used to say when I'd bring my greasy "junk" in the house..

    Play with it outside..

    I liked the video of the truck being built. I just dont think this is the forum for posting anything political or about a deity you may or may not believe in. I dont see it has a place in the hobby of cars. I try and keep friends by not bothering with personal beliefs such as these..

    I thought the video was done well.

    Corvanti - I'm done. I'm not gonna say anymore than what I did. I feel BAD that I said it, and yet I feel liberated that I said it. mmagic, I apologize if it looks like I'm picking on you. You're just one small example and I hold NO personal malice towards you. I liked the video, I love the truck. You did a great job with both. Thanks for sharing.

    Mr. K, i have been so glad you've been back. so much information - past and now, present again!

    i happen to have political opinions different than you, and have done my best not to express them after a few "stove-hugger" posts last year.

    now, i liked mmagics' video - not for the title, or the last few frames of it - but for the "build"!!! that's why i'm here: to learn about all things Studebaker.

    no, i wouldn't have used that title or the last few pics. there are other places online for political opinion.

    shoot, there appears way too many political "power trips" going on in the SDC!

    i'm going to love studes no matter what! no one will stand in my way...

    LOOK..... These forums are and always have been populated by folks who lean DECIDEDLY CONservative. In a sense, I don't think that's a surprise - at least it shouldn't be. I've endured - AND complained on occassion - about the simmering "Rightness" that lurks just under the surface here. I'll just say it outrright - I'm a bleeding heart Liberal /Progressive as far as political leanings go Feel free to tell me how stupid and misguided I am in my leanings
    The Rightness? It's ALWAYS been there in spite of some of the most blatant transgressors who might protest. Having a black man in OUR Whitehouse just does not set well with most SDCers - I'd bet money on it. (BTW, I've never met a black SDC member, but one surely must exist - Right?)
    Never mind that filthy rich Americans are BUYING the legislators they want (and convincing you it's in YOUR best interests). But that said, we're supposed to NOT cross the line of PC as we pretend we're all neutral here. Maybe we NEED a seperate forum where we can lament the stupidity of the "other side" and fight the perpetual fight as to what faction it really was that brought Studebaker to a standstill. SURELY - if the unions had agreed to work for a dollar an hour (I'm just guessing with that figure here) Studebaker could've sold cars like hotcakes and made the Big 3 tremble. Forget how the union workers would've managed on 40 bucks a week after taxes. Forget how unions established the 40-hour weeks, fought child labor, fought for wages one could get by on, gave us things so many take for granted nowdays, like health insurance, holidays and the concept of an annual vacation. Forget all that - It's the executives and investors that should've come first and been rewarded.

    The thread line mmagic used in comedic fashion - is straight off of Fox "news". It DID come out of our President's mouth initially, but like so MANY quotes FOX serves up, the context was omitted. And you can bet your best shoes that omission wasn't an accident. What about the sheet steel that was used to repair these fenders? Who did that? What about the tools, the rivets, the paint and the roads all that got to local stores via??? So - a project was done - without acknowledging those who facilitated it. Good deal! Congratulations. Kinda like an ace fighter pilot saying he owed all his victories to his innate shooting abilities. Duh - what about the fightrer factory - the designers - the training - the maintenace men (I used to be one of those). Your victories would've been just as easy without all those folks and input to stand on? Wow! And Hollywood has to manufacture supermen.
    I don't know if mmagic has noticed my PM to him about how I liked the video until I got to the end. I thought it was cool enough to forward it to a friend who I helped assemble a Champ from pieces of five different vehicles awhile back. ALL the folks that made that beautiful 8E-7 come together - I'll never be able to acknowledge. Of course, I can tell everyone I did it myself, and they'll believe me.

    OH CLARK !!!!!!

    Thanks for posting the Video; it was nice of you to share the great job you did on the Champ. I'm glad you have a sense of humor; it's a sad thing that some have to stumble through life looking for something to be offended by.

    Studebakers are for fun and most people on this forum know that, ignore the rest.

    Good job with the truck, the two-tone color is very eye-catching. Nice job with the video as well. It is well-paced and, as someone else said the "dorky music" fits well, too. I hope you enjoy driving your new truck on all the roads that you build yourself!

    Comical beyond belief! This is a minefield and I have chosen not to participate. (It has taken a lot of restraint, and those who know me understand that.)

    However, the original poster knew that and I am sure he is having a great time. Kinda like the guy who walks into a bar, starts an argument, and then goes out to the parking lot, sets on his tailgate and watches as the fight spills out side....or like the kayaker who parks his kayak down stream from a water fall so that he can watch all the mayhem as the canoes tip over!

    This is great. You get a newer member to just about R&R every nut and bolt out of a Studebaker and now he is being raked over the coals. Get your panties out of a bunch! Just look at what he did! So what if his political views are different than yours! He has preserved another Studebaker in less time than it takes some people to wake up in the morning! It is unfortunate that the person that will get banned doesn't really deserve it, the same few crybabies on the other hand...
    Please grow up...I am getting tired of this nonsense.

    Yep, it is a little quick for old eyes... 312 frames in 140 seconds doesn't allow for many blinks but provided a little sequence deception. Actually I cheated a bit (maybe a lot) on the sequence as like many of projects the redos are what tried the patience. The fenders were on and off so many times the bolt holes were starting to wear. The steering wheel was off at least 15 times just trying to get the turn signal mechanism to work. One fender clip had to be removed and re-attached in a more appropriate direction and the seat had to be re-done because my head was 3 inches into the headliner! The list of some "Oh &&*^*&^ moments" were documented in a previous post.

    For 8 months the motto has been, "This is practice for the Speedster". But, the Champ has taken on a life of its own... in the last 60 miles it's drawn 27 thumbs up..... and 5 "who made Studebaker ?" 's !
