    Reading this reminded me – we are not alone. There are always kindred spirits to be found.

    As my contemporaries and I enter full geezer-dom, some of them move to "adult" communities with various levels of support and care. One thing they all seem to have in common is a lot of activities designed to appeal to the senior citizen. One couple we know raved about their new home, where they spend their days in both organized activities (tours, movie nights) and free time to play bridge and use the swimming pool. They said that they had looked at other such facilities that focused on different activities, and asked me what I like to do in my spare time. I told them my favorite activity was scrounging around in junk yards full of old cars. That pretty well ended that line of conversation.

I spent plenty of time in that yard, dreaming of fixing different cars up to drive. I guess it caused an addiction, that I have not recovered from. I also like to save, or see cars saved from the crusher.
    Absolutely the same. I predict that this love will be my ultimate financial downfall.

    Sometimes the antenna is on the left, like a Studebaker, and sometimes it is on the right, like most others.

    I don't remember watching this particular cartoon, but I do remember seeing a number of Ad Council, and AAA-sponsored, 'Otto the Auto' cartoons from the same era promoting traffic safety, where the cars were also 'alive' like this one.

    Disney's modern day equivalent would be their full-length movie, 'Cars'.

    Poor little Suzy. While it is a cartoon rendering, I picture her to be a little blue Lark.

    Not too long ago, I spotted a '63 Lark in a very bright shade of blue just like Susie barreling down Beeline Highway back home. It was the first time that I had actually seen a Lark in person, so it was doubly cool at that moment.

    When my 3 children were young, I picked up a VHS copy of this at the local video store (remember those?) in the bargain bin for a dollar. Narrated by Sterling Hollaway (Winnie the Poah) I could immediately see Suzy was a bullet nose Studebaker convertible.

    I have seen modified bullet nose cars that look just like the car being rescued at the end of the cartoon. My wife can't understand but my Studebaker does know me. She also hates it when I say "well, Studebaker baled us out again" when a situation comes up that the Studebaker is pressed into emergency service. Some things are beyond understanding for some people.

    You would be surprised, but there are people that do not agree.
