        If I keep one, I can't do another.

        I enjoy finding them, building them, and driving them.

        I find I'm bored to tears with the same car for too long.

        I've got great memories of every Stude I've ever owned. More great memories to come

          Where is the Ute's battery? (I want to check the hold-down...) 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."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            It's in the passenger compartment, behind the driver's seat, under the package shelf. It's in a marine battery box which is bolted through the floor. The battery box is covered with a custom cover made out of the Mercedes wool carpet.

            I'll send you a pic of the BHD, Bob
