|58lincoln||Thanks a lot guys, really I appreciate all of it. Also, yeah Idk where I'd be without my parents, I guess my dad taught me (or tried to) a lot about respect and it did sink in, I've always had respect for vintage tin, they just don't make them to have character anymore, thanks again guys.-Alex|

Alright, I also posted the info on the car on the studebaker drivers club forum and word spread very fast, I guess it sounds like the car is pretty much disassembled and the parts are going to good homes so atleast thats a positive in all this negative. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/topic.asp?

they put 283's in them in 65-66. Also I found this and thought that it's kinda cool.

just x out if it asks if u'd like to donate lol.

|formerice||I'm pretty sure the 64's used the Chevy 283's as a cost cutting as a last ditch. Funny thing, being rare doesn't make stuff valuable which is sad. A 57 Chevy that sold millions, great collector cars, figure that one out. The good news that you can probably buy a perfect ultra rare 56 Golden Hawk cheaper than a 57 Chevy. I own a 52 Willys Areo coupe, rare as hell, not worth much. A friend of mine was trying to sell a mint 327 powered Lark, gotta be rare as can be, I think he can't give it away.|

I am posting an ad on craigslist, that's a great idea
and yeah, my generation makes me mad sometimes too, I really have a lot of respect for classic iron and the people who built them. -Alex

I see cars all the time at the local Pick-n-pull that make me want to cry. A while ago there was a super solid, original paint ZERO rust 70ish Chevy pickup. It had a wasted quarter panel (bolt on and they reproduce it) and a door was rough but repairable. It was a crying shame. Then how about the 55 Buick Super! My brother and I got all the good stuff off that we could but what a shame that it ended up there.

|Hippie||Oh the humanity! Somebody needs to grab that 289, if it wasn't so far away it would already be in the back of my pickup headed for my garage.|

|Ghetto Jet||Thats sad to see, post it on your local craigslist, maybe someone will come save it?|

|58lincoln||:'( car is located at U pull it north, Omaha Nebraska, 1405 Grace St. 402-342-0831.. I bought the steering wheel and carburetor, it hurt because I know it probably doesn't matter much, but I put a rag in the intake to keep dirt and things out of there.|
