    Ten Commandments For The Studebaker Collector:

    1) Thou shalt not read the eBay Motors or Craigs List ads on company time, lest thy employer make it impossible to continue thy car payments.
    2) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's car, nor his garage, nor his battery charger.
    3) Thou shalt not store thy Studebakers out-of-doors except to make room for the wife's Toyota.
    4) Thou shalt not deceive thy wife into thinking that thee is taking her for a romantic Sunday drive when indeed thou art going out to look at another car.
    5) Thou shalt not love thy Studebakers more than thy wife and children.
    6) Thou shalt not despise thy neighbor's Edsel, nor his DeSoto, nor even his '47 Plymouth.
    7) Thou shalt not tell thy spouse the entire cost of thy latest restoration, at least not all at the same time.
    8) Thou shalt not promise thy wife a new addition for the house and then use it to store Studebakers.
    9) Thou shalt not allow thy sons and daughters to get married during the car show season.
    10) Thou shalt not buy thy wife a floor jack for your anniversary.

    I disagree, like Homer Simpson buying Marge a bowling ball, you buy the spouse the jack, and if she decides she doesn't like it, you don't necessarily have to return it .

        1: Don't let the boss catch you! or "It's my lunch time"
        2: He just keeps a VW ragtop in it, but, he is handy to have around to help!
        3: ONLY in the winter does she get a spot in the garage!
        4: Nope, just don't tell her you bought it already!
        5: No Comment! I was accused of that when we were first married, I
        told her that was right. It was the wrong answer!
        6: Nope, not even his VW
        7: Absolutely! but, also don't tell her what you sell it for either!
        8: Why?
        9: I'm encouraging her to elope, it's cheaper!
        10: is a vacuum OK?
        11: Don't let her read your answers on the forum either!

                I cant resist doing this. Now I gotta do George Carlin's spin on the Ten Commandments for the Studebaker Collector [)]

                1) Thou shalt not read the eBay Motors or Craigs List ads on company time, lest thy employer make it impossible to continue thy car payments.

                Well I dont use Ebay Motors as I'm not a fan of buying cars from Ebay Motors.

                4) Thou shalt not deceive thy wife into thinking that thee is taking her for a romantic Sunday drive when indeed thou art going out to look at another car.

                Well I'm not married but I have a somewhat understandable set of parents.

                5) Thou shalt not love thy Studebakers more than thy wife and children.

                Well I'm not married but my parents may find it kind of weird kissing my Commander every night.

                6) Thou shalt not despise thy neighbor's Edsel, nor his DeSoto, nor even his '47 Plymouth.

                Neighbor's dont have any of the three, although I give the Hudson the occasional stink eye(got a vertical wire grille that needs replating, just kidding).

                7) Thou shalt not tell thy spouse the entire cost of thy latest restoration, at least not all at the same time.

                Thats okay because I'm horrible with numbers over a very long long time.

                8) Thou shalt not promise thy wife a new addition for the house and then use it to store Studebakers.

                Ours will be straight up for Studebakers, although the next house may encompass a pole barn in the middle of nowhere.

                9) Thou shalt not allow thy sons and daughters to get married during the car show season.

                What sons or daughters, I hope I don't have sons and daughters(25 and single).
                10) Thou shalt not buy thy wife a floor jack for your anniversary.

                Well I'm married, although I give tools to my dad for Christmas. We have a case of a few occaisionally disappear, so its a replenish operation than anything else.

                So all but two Commandments are not applicable for this day and age, which leaves:

                2) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's car, nor his garage, nor his battery charger.
                He's an easy person, but his storage his plum full of other people's cars being stored at the moment. He built a pole barn for his own cars, which in effect was used to store other people's cars too.

                3) Thou shalt not store thy Studebakers out-of-doors except to make room for the wife's Toyota.
                The vehicles out of doors are either drivers, donors or projects. We also don't use the car and a half separate garage for anything but the Avanti, the 55 Commander, and a few other odds and ends that dont hold up to nature well. We also have no imports, but if we did, they follow the outside rule as all others, as they are used for a daily basis.

                LOL, its probably not as funny as Carlin's spin on the Commandments, but I couldnt resist when I saw it or the plaque in South Bend about it. [:O)]

                            Gifts to the significant other must have relevance. A friend of mine who was in my wedding had a 400 acre "farm" (actually we just went there to drink beer and do a little "work") and got his wife a set of gloves and post hole diggers for Christmas (didn't go over well).

                            I also worked for another guy who had a Triumph TR-6 that he was constantly having someone work on. One year he "gave" his wife a new battery and a case of oil for it. But what do you expect from someone who got an obituary for his dog published in the Washiongton Post???

                              Gifts to the significant other must have relevance. A friend of mine who was in my wedding had a 400 acre "farm" (actually we just went there to drink beer and do a little "work") and got his wife a set of gloves and post hole diggers for Christmas (didn't go over well).

                              I also worked for another guy who had a Triumph TR-6 that he was constantly having someone work on. One year he "gave" his wife a new battery and a case of oil for it. But what do you expect from someone who got an obituary for his dog published in the Washiongton Post???
