  • Ahead of myself

    Well, in the immortal words of Kramer, "I'm out." I am not in as healthy a bank position as I remembered, yet one more reason to NOT love Christmas

    I'm close, and I'm still ahead of track for what my wife and I originally planned last year when we sold our second car. Go for a year with one car and start looking in the spring for a Studebaker for a second car. She was out of work recuperating half of last year, and that's what prompted our going to a solo car.

    I blame the wife though! I had reined in my ad browsing until SHE brought up on her own that maybe I should start looking 'in case' we found something. Honestly, I sort of agreed with her and I did NOT expect to stumble so soon across such a sweet deal as this Cruiser looks. Her fault.

    I hate to possibly come across as the member who cries wolf over this car and that, but reality is such a potato in the tailpipe.

    I still gained important information for when I do have a check in hand and know what I need to add on to a sale price for the one that won't get away. I have several threads subscribed because of the past couple of weeks. Thank you.

    Well I guess LIFE does happen, most of us have been there.

    We did go to bit of trouble to help, but I for one would do it again. No problem, thanks for coming here to the right place, see you later.

      Thank you Rich and all, I do realize folks did make the effort and I don't take any of it for granted.

        Hang around and keep us company Leo, you'll get more knowledge and a car when that's possible. Have a great 2013.

            Even if you never buy a Studebaker you'll always be welcome here. We like people who just happen to like Studes.

            I was a member of the SDC for years before I eventually bought one.

              I've found that, whenever i start on a new hobby or a new quest, something always comes up fairly quickly that is a really good deal. If I pass on that, it takes a lot longer, but eventually I can find an even better deal. The trick is knowing enough to tell a good deal from a great deal from a bad deal.

              You are going about it the right way by educating yourself and asking questions first. that's a rare, but excellent quality. Something will come up that will make things righat again.

              OTOH, every New Year I tell myself that THIS year is going to be better than last year. It just has to. But then, every New Year I tell myself...

                  Thank you all. That's just the mindset I strive for and the reason why I can just move along If it's meant to be, it'll happen.

                  I didn't delete the guy's email and phone number either. Just to test that philosophy.

                    I didn't have a car when I joined the club, a couple of members decided my now Lark would be a good car for me and I love it.
