There is so much history about the Studebaker Company that I can only err by recall. They actually made many the covered wagons back in the day of actual "horse" power. You can see restored examples in smaller museums around the Country. Some were named "Land Cruisers" and really large. On the plaqu...
Thanks John for reminding me that I'm not alone in remembering these cars. I liked the style and not too much fin. It was based on the Raymond Lowery design of 1953 but the chassis had to be heavier for those engines. There were two styles of the Hawks, iirc. The more common one had central snout ty...

Dang ! Anyone can say nice work and fleet past to another discussion. I will be looking at your pix for days. I would need to read exactly and learn from it.
Well, half a rant is like half nuts which moved the information carriage only so far. No major crash. My cp is cabled into my router and it is Win 7. I read that MS quit supporting Win 7 a while back. There is certainly a lot of updating, if that is what it is, going on. I didn't mean to take so muc...
I know a few things and idle "bandwidth" is not idle. It is seeing or feeling your hard drives and fans coming on and off when merely composing. These are not updates, these are "mining" or using our equipment towards another purpose.

I have an old Walker Turner DP which was originally a bench model. The previous owner had access to a large lathe at some point and made a coupling mating two "tubes" together, making it a floor model. You're right, this stuff gets heavy. In normal use the table isn't too heavy to adjust by hand but...
Our eyeballs change over time. When I was younger I had super vision "close up" I actually fixed watches with steady fingers. I was "near sighted" and distance was fuzzy. It turns that my later glasses are too strong for clear distance. Some from the 1970's are more appropriate for distance but now ...
I thought a good rant would relieve some tension. I wasn't being very specific because that would violate the rules. There is stuff hanging over our heads and can't even touch the edge of it. Sure. Delete the whole thread for half a rant is unintelligible and even that is disturbing.
Many have served and many are fallen. I respect them alongside the brothers in arms. I just don't understand how Mexico isn't the powerhouse of the world at this time. Yes, of course I do. It is not for me to say at this time. Really great people are fleeing. Thugs are fleeing. There is pressure and...
