i had to take our old hot water heater to the dump today. fun story, one many many many have experienced. you know the story. come home from work, it's 1830 (6:30 pm for those of you that don't know how to tell time properly) to find the garage floor awash, and a steady stream flowing out of the bottom of the heater. 30 minutes later, and $500.00 bucks poorer, i'm back at the house horsing out the old hot water heater and lifting in and connecting the new. i had to get the old Superman cape out of the closet, knock the dust off it, and don it to move the old heater. even drained those things weigh a ton. so anyway....
here i am, driving down the road on the way to the dump, and i pass by two spectacular examples of classic American carmaking.
the first was a pristine red Grand Tourisimo Studebaker Hawk. here's a picture of one (white, but you will get the idea) i found on the web:
the other was an absolutely cherry, beautiful white Studebaker Avanti. what a way to cruise on a pleasant saturday afternoon.
