        They're a lot of fun, I watched a few last night.

        There's one with John Cameron Swayze (sp?) urging people to go to their Studebaker dealer and order an "Avanti-powered R-2" Hawk or Lark.

        He emphsises the special order part and quotes a top speed of 140+ for the Hawk and 130+ for the Lark.

        BTW: And there's a long piece with George Burns telling Studebaker dealers how great "Mr. Ed" will be. It was shown at the end of the original pilot fim and he explains that the series will have two new lead actors and he intoduces them who do a scene together. (Maybe three new actors....I think Mr. Ed looks different too...a different white blaze on his head).

                These commercials on Youtube came from a cassette tape of Studebaker commercials that was available about 15 years ago (and might still be). I like the one cartoon commercial (Daddy buy the Lark it's the car for me) and poor Daddy looks like he wants to throw up. Good commercials, but kinda cutsie-poo and probably largely ineffective in an era when all anyone wanted was horsepower.

                        In the Cruiser promo, "Parallel Wipers across the whole line this year...." Well, the Hawk always was a stepchild... 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."
