Oh Larry........that first pic got you 2 thumbs up instantly.
Does that take me back to my pedal TRACTOR when I was young and good looking. I wore the tires off that thing coming down the bumpy brick sidewalk and locking my legs and pedals and making these nice long skinny black marks on my neighbors walks.
It wasn't long after that I was sent to live with another family.
Nice build on your ride.
I have a friend, well, sort of, he owned and loved Studes....he's in Florida now after selling off his collection. Everything from Hawks, Golden Hawks, Avantis, and he was a member of the Studebaker Club on the east coast I think.
And since Mario is 90 and can still chew his food, don't let 80 bother you. :-)[Reply to this comment]

Thanks Rob. "69" Camaro. (nuf said) I like the blazer also. First off the park brake release for your Camaro is available on amazon. around 15$. I have a lot of info on your toys you may benefit from, but I'm a one finger typist. I could offer some info on your header clearance problem and your spark plug service difficulties. That much typing I would'nt get anything else done. check my responces to George and Mario.[Reply to this comment]

I try to keep up with everyone's posts...and yes I have had a lot of senior mechanics help me with advice on the header clearance issue. Thankfully I am past that now working on Parking Brake one.
My uncle from long ago told me, it's all just nuts and bolts son. A true mechanic knows which is which. :-)
I know I may complain a lot but I am truly thankful to God that I can at least have some skills available and a car I am truly enjoying fixing up. I'm a different (happier) person when I can spend hours in my garage.
AND IT'S ODD MY WIFE SEEMS HAPPIER TOO....Hmmm???[Reply to this comment]
