  • Eligible for Social Security, this 66 year old Studebaker truck is still working.

    I do a little bit of welding and machine work and I have the priviledge of getting to use my friend Kurt's 1949 2R17 for pick ups and deliveries. I have 2 E40's that are not on the road yet, but soon. This excavator bucket needed to have a new cutting edge welded in. I just thought you might enjoy seeing another Studebaker truck still earning it's keep.

        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.
