    "...When he fell on his back, he held on
    to the pump and several gallons were lost,
    but we can deduct it from his severance
    check."
    "Don't forget the skates with the broken
    bearings and scuff marks!"

    That is a great looking station; although, at that moment, it looks cold as hell.

    VW went to a very dear friend who was there for me when I was alone and
    needed help.

    1951 Studebaker Commander (or thereabouts). My brother had one ... never could tell if it was coming or going.

    Edit: Starlight Coupe.

    I took a trip on a Studie back when
    they were available on car lots.
    I also came to the same conclusion
    when I first saw it!
    I liked the Pontiacs because I
    could lie down on the rear view
    windows on long trips when there
    were no freeways.
