    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    I never got along with those. I smashed my thumb working on one my brother-in law had and it took over 20 years before my thumbnail grew back right. I'll stick with Studebakers!

      But we have one in a two-door hardtop--64V-20202 at the SNM!

      I've often wondered what that car would bring at auction--although it'll never end up there I know.

      That car has 28 miles--I've stuck in my head in the window many years ago!

      R1, 4-speed, last regular-production U.S-built Stude car--I'd like to think it'd bring 100 grand, although we might be getting around that point where it would've peaked.

      Nice to dream.

        A good point, Bill. 64V20202 hasn't led the charmed life visited upon this Volkswagen, but at least it did survive darker days in remarkably good shape.

        I have no idea when it last ran, though; that would take some doing! BP

            Because the car came from FDR at the time.

              The two-letter state abbreviations started when Zip codes started in 1963, though they were not emphasized or widely used for quite a while. They are mostly intuitive (ie, NJ, MO), but WN is one that might better have been WA. And Mississippi is abbreviated MS, which the Coast Guard (boat registration) and several other agencies had already been abbreviating as MI (which the USPS uses for Michigan).
