    My sister recently passed after being in the nursing home in a coma for the past four years. Before that, she and her daughter loved to go around to yard sales and flea markets. After her funeral, her daughter gave me an old 1949 copy of Popular Science magazine that my sister had bought at a flea market for me many years ago because it had a Studebaker on the front cover. She had started getting forgetful back then, so the magazine had been put away and forgotten. She was fifteen years older than me, and always looked after me. It was really good to get one last present from her.
    There are 6 1/2 pages of story and pictures. I will be happy to scan the pages and post them here if there is any interest.

    And the Commander to boot! I'd love to read the article within.
    So sorry to hear about your sister. Perhaps she deliberately held the magazine back knowing you would be so happy to receive it after she passed away.

        So sorry for your loss. Your next CD cover artwork perhaps? You have my permission to use it. Loved your music. Great pickers. I used to play guitar. Can't pick my nose now. Well not with my left hand. cheers jimmijim
