    Not only did Studebaker dealers often carry Packards, but Mercedes as well. Studebaker was the sole distributor of Mercedes-Benz vehicles from about 1958 through 1963

  3. I'm thinking it could be traffic light controllers of olden time. They were inside a steel cabinet close by and if you were close bye you could hear the mechanism doing it's thing.

    Nope sorry it just said "Technician" at work. Back in the day technician was really someone special. I couldn't figure it out either.

    I remember the car very well. You always kept it in excellent condition. I also liked Vic Bova's 64

  14. Bova's was dark blue. I only kept mine for nine months. It was never the same after Frank Sollito backed into it. Man time fly's!:confused:

  17. Days are long gone since anybody that high up could just casually hang out in front of the drive-in without Secret Service covering them like flies.

    How about you leave your political comments off the HAMB?
    You can post on Yellow Bullet if you must.

    Are we done yet?

    I hesitate to respond because the last thing I want is for this thread to be shut down for non-H.A.M.B. related shit slinging.

    However, that being said, my initial post did not reference the Kennedy's. Although I did think he looked like Bobby, I didn't know it was him until someone else pointed it out. My comment was about someone that had their feet up on someone's fender and had the appearance of being on a cell phone when he was obviously eating ice cream from a cup.

    Can't we all just get along ?
