Our 1951 Studebaker Commander, parked on the street in front of our house, was plowed into by an intoxicated gentleman driving a 1961 Plymouth Belvedere. The chrome on our rear bumper was flaked off down to the bare steel. His front end was buckled to the firewall and the hood bent so badly it blocked the windshield. Dad drove the Studebaker for another 18 months with no problems, the drunk guy’s car was towed and totaled.
Packard and Studebaker fairly much closed operation in the same year, yet, for several years later until 1969 I believe, a version of both, built from existing parts called the Packabaker was marketed.
Hi Ho Silver!!!
Isn’t National Brotherhood Week coming up soon? Oh, wait!!! We replaced that with Black History Month and MLK Day…and, basically, like a dog begging for treats tossed an entire ethnic culture a bone and said chew on it quietly and behave. People who behave rarely create positive change, why then are we surprised that more change is demanded every few decades. Skin color does not denote worth, should not relegate status and must not be the sole determining point of social interaction.
What happens when the prevailing tenor is replaced by a bass-baritone? Or in this season, perhaps, by a mezzo-soprano?
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing…” “To fight for the right, without question or pause; To willingly march into hell for a heavenly cause…” Neither quote is King but both come to mind when I remember him and the changes his life have made to our society.
I wonder, does Fritzi have curtains or blinds on HER bedroom windows?
C.K. would make an excellent Sweep in women’s curling.
uh, history records something called “yellow journalism” and “jingoism”. Opinionated editors had their own pages in print dailies, unbiased reporting could and was swayed by the leanings of the publishers and editors.
