    okay---yah Ha i see you kids are trolling me, but seriously I could not take a bite o' restaurant food without thinking about my pets at home wondering where i am, when will i be back? plus, money spent on drive-n-eat: "um, is the chickkin' LOCAL?" ha, is money down the drain that could be used to obtain Studebaker-Packard Parts, Chevy Parts, File Cabinets to store "stuff" in, and so on. see? prolly not. ha. bottom line: i'm just not doing fine dining for something to "do". hope thatt helps you some thank mee. but anyway, after two plus days of consulting, thinking, checking my parts bins, etc. i think i've got the solution for the driveshaft dilemma i'm dealing with on my van project. yup. the optimal bestest/cheapest solution, and you know what? summa these people wouldna even addressed the issue; they'd see it as a non-problem until it reared its ugly head somewhere west of laramie, wyoming. yup. oh--it was a trip down memory lane sorting through my driveshafts i've got stored up, including the one i took outta my other van back in 2004(won't fit, btw) and one i got waaay back in 1985. all are priceless, since the wreckin' yards would not even HAVE anya them, by now. nope. so anyway--i'll letcha know how this plays out. hope thatt helps you some thankk mee.

    okay----my newsest 58 Pacckerd project is very, very SOLID. but seee---the original owner who passed it onto his daughter then sold it to a guy from okelhomma who then sold it to mee at the fairgrounds last year....ummm, where was i goiing? uh--the original owner was like old joe(your president) and got too incompetent(like old joe) to drive, and started hitting things with his packkerd. well, it had the front & rear bumpers mashed up and the right rear door dented in, but the worst of it was sun-deteriorated interior. but see---the guy from okelhomma is one a these "car guys" originally from the Ozarks whose specialty is tasteless & freaky modificcations to "customize" a car. but see--he was getting "old"(like mee, and let his 58 Packard project languish for about 10 years. Then he brought it to the fairgrounds on a trailer without doing anything a-tall to make it presentable. but yeah---i looked it over and realized that i had a MORAL obligation to rescue that car. it was like a litter of kittens dumped by the road. yup. anyway, i'm not going whole-hog on a restoration at this point. i'm just working to get 'er roadworthy and night-time car cruiseworthy. so right now, i'm detailling the used damage-salvage front and rear bumpers that i obtained that are far from perfect, but suitable to use for a cruiser. yup. the rear bumper is fairly easy to obtain, because it was used on 57-58 Studebaker sedans and wagon, as well. but the front bumper is a 1YO bumper that was used on only 2,034 new Packards in 1958. So, yeah---they're scarce. I've GOT a new-old-stock front bumper that i've had for 20 years, but i won't use it as i can't seem to keep anything nice. it is priceless. so, anyway, i'll get out there & pull the front bumper off the packard, this afternoon. how do you like that?
