    psst, Homer,
    this is really boring.

    Dude. Boring thought it may be (I’m waiting for the photo of that orange ’67 Chevy or Buick or whatever that’s parked on Pierrepont) YOU try coming up with fresh content, with pictures, every day.

    I’m still waiting for someone to snap a picture of the “WANTED” sign STILL up in the window of BankAmerica on Montague looking for the person who defaced the synagogue on Remsen with swastikas. Figured the bank would be so in touch with the community they’d actually know the guy got busted months ago and was a dangerous crackpot.

    But I digress. My point being that if I was halfway motivated I’d snap the picture and send it in like Waterboy did for Key Food. Anyone have a camera so they can snap that picture and spark comments so we don’t have to talk about cars?

    Boring? This is a Studebaker GT Hawk, fer gosh sakes.

    Yes it is a Studebaker Hawk.. I remember my uncle had one when I was in grade school…..It’s not too well prerserved, the owner is seen from time to time desperately trying to tape it together. It’s interesting as a bit of history, but definitely not driver friendly alas.

    As a kid I remember that a Studebaker in the neighborhood, would always attract attention. The model that the kids loved was a bullet nosed coupe…that we all called The P 38 because the front end looked like the popular WWll fighter plane of that name…Then came The Avanti….Wow!

    Yes, I remember the first Avanti….seemed so daring. How old are we anyway?
