    WELL.... THERE IS NOW ONE MORE STUDEBAKER ALIVE AND RUNNING AGAIN!! I JUST STARTED LUCY FOR THE FIRST TIME A MINUTE AGO by accident as I was working through a starting problem. As I was returning the key to the ignition position, she turned over.. i held it for a second and she fired right up! Its a little too dark tonight to take her for the first ride... I suddenly feel a sick day coming on..

                      Hell of a good feeling isnt it? I might catch some flak for saying
                      this, but reviving a dead automobile is the closest a man can get to
                      child birth. I remember hearing my Hawks engine run for the first
                      time after assembling it myself was both thrilling and frightning.

                      Congrats ... make sure you do the cam breakin if required.

                          I'm not sure about the child birth thing, but it sure feels good after all that work to hear it go. I called my uncle who worked on the assembly line Lucy came down. I told him it was running again. He's kept a journal since he was 16. He worked in final assembly. Anyway, by the end of the week, i"m hoping to take my first ride in her. Lots of work still needs to be done. brakes, windshields, Interior and some paint work. Thanks for the support everyone.
