Consumer Report Rating: Don't buy a Studebaker
“Is that candy apple red?” asks the old guy sitting next to me at Quick Lube. “I’m not sure what color it is. I think candy apple red is a lot brighter.” I say. “My first car was a ‘32 Studebaker and they sold it to me with a cracked block.” “Swore I’d never get another one” I wanted to say “Mister, I don’t think you need to worry” but instead..”Oh that’s too bad.” Deep in dread that I need to get the stupid novel-size car manual out to reset the stupid high tech oil change light.
My candy apple red car (I’m going with that because it sounds cool), camera and I are ready to hit the blue highways. Some of the towns on my list: Worstville, Patriot, Milan, Minister, Farmer, Jumbo, Roundhead, Zulu, Domestic, Peppertown , Friendship, Alert and Petroleum to name a few. How did they get their names? Are the residents friendly, alert or round of head? Do they even exist anymore? Stay tune and we will find out.
Rod is off to Brazil. He wouldn’t even pack a pair of shorts. Oh, brother.
