  • Oh, to have the credit rating for a loan...

    This Gorgeous truck is currently on e-bay. I'd rather have a loan on this than any new truck currently being offered:

    Sigh, well... as my dear ol' Dad would have said, "If wishes were fishes, no one would starve."[)]

    We just hashed this thing out about 2 weeks ago. It sure isn't perfect, but it IS pretty.

    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Ron, if you want it, go get it!! Money's easy- there's plenty of it around... just a matter of going and getting it!

        If I want more money, I just figure out how to work harder and smarter; if I really want something that takes money, I make it happen- and as long as we're drawing breath, we all have that opportunity!

        You can't buy love, health or happiness- but money can help you get there... I didn't need a reminder, but my Linda's brush with cancer (turned out there was none!!) gave me just that[B)]

        Here's hoping you get out and take advantage of the greatest land of oportunity in the history of the earth; and get yourself that beautiful truck!!![8D][^]

            I agree with Bams50...
            If you want something bad enough (and don't have to lie, cheat, or steal to get it) get it.
            Sooner or later we'll all be in a "retirement communuity" eating mushy peas and wetting ourselves.

            Enjoy life while you can.

                            Brake and electrical work is complete, I still have to replace all the spring bushings and some other rubber "bits" before he has another appointment with an inspector. I've got all the needed parts but the fall is a time of the year when I'm rarely home because of my job, so progress is slower than I would like.[B)] However, I have had him out for a couple of good drives earlier this fall using Temporary Operating Permits and he runs like a top [8D]. That said, with the bad winter weather upon us, there is little need to rush as he won't be getting regular jaunts until springtime in any case.
