  • New IN State Museum promo w/ '50 Champion

    'Went into our License Branch today to get a fresh title underway for the Texas Wagonaire. (Rule #1: When you acquire another collector car, immediately turn in the title and title it in your name so your spouse/estate doesn't have trouble disposing of it upon your demise.)

    Anyway, lo and behold, here was a fresh addition to the literature rack, soliciting Hoosiers to buy a specialty license plate about Abraham Lincoln:

    I immediately recognized the '50 (by the reflections in the bullet-nose) as having been photographed right where it is on display at The New Indiana State Museum. It is, in fact, the same car photographed below when it arrived from Ohio mid-September 2000 for ultimate display in the new museum, which was not yet under construction at the time:

    Cool beans. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      May be true in northern Indiana, but in all my travels and time spent south of the Indy area, I saw more "Stars and Bars" than I did back home in Texas...

          The last vehicle the President ever rode in was bought by the Studebaker brothers, but not sure otherwise...
