    Thanks for the definition of CASO, but I believe it should be listed as an oxymoron. I've never heard of 'cheap' and Studebaker owner going together. Not after the first 50 years, anyway.

        There's some common internet abbreviations used here...

        BTW = by the way
        OTOH = on the other hand
        LOL = laughing out loud
        AFAIK = as far as I know

          What ever happened to "evil vendor" in reference to sellers of Stude parts?

                    "Pistine": completely free from dirt or contamination; "pistine mountain snow"

                    immaculately clean and unused; "he drove his pistine ermine white GT Hawk to the FLAPS".

                      Mark, wouldn't that be "Pristine" instead of " Pistine"??

                        When a driver forgets to release the park brake and drives 300 miles gets out and asks "What's that smell" it is considered an "eye D tin tea" error. Typically abbreviated and written out "ID10T"

                          Did you consider "eBay contribution" for those less-than-effective car ads?

                          It's beginning to look like "CHITPSSRMC" isn't going going to catch on as an shortcut for:
