The Studebaker Salesman

Hello madam, and welcome to our place of business. Is there any way that I can be of assistance? We have a huge selection of cars both used and new. Chances are we have the right one on the lot for you. We sell and service cars from the best automaker. One with a long and storied past, it’s Studebaker! If you don’t readily see what you are looking for, we have some in the back lot; or we can order more. You’ve heard all about the financial difficulty that’s been plaguing this automotive company. Let me tell you, in this year of nineteen sixty-three, you will never buy a car of greater quality. Don’t you just love the smell of brand new upholstery? With the range of our models, we have variety. “Gran Turismo Hawk” is top of the line luxury. We have the low-priced “Lark” if you want economy. But take a look at the company’s latest entry, it’s a sporty new coupe that is known as “Avanti”. This innovative family sports car is so great. It has a powerful two eighty-nine cubes V-8! It can generate almost three hundred horsepower with the optional latest Paxton supercharger. It can move at one hundred fifty miles an hour! Its body is made of lightweight rustproof fiberglass. It’s the sportiest vehicle that has the most class! Madam, I’ll tell you, this is the one you’ll love, no doubt. We saw you walk in, and we want to see you drive out! Our prices are lowest. They won’t be staying that way. Why wait? We can make you a terrific deal today. When you drive up to your friends, you know what they will say? “Wow, what a beautiful car, I’m getting one today!”

I worked with a Studebaker for years in DC. He had pictures of the cars on his wall. He would have appreciated this poem.

You bring back memories Robert. I customized a 53 convertible. Dechromed and leaded, Floor shift, clutch out of a jeep and bucket seats out of a Volvo. That was a great car. Long time ago

Well, done! As a car guy, I can see you know your Studes. I would die for a 49 starlight coupe!

This is too cute Robert and so true of any car lot. You walk in and they are on you in a minute. That's because they all work on commission I'm sure. Great job here. Have you noticed we don't see many of those on the road anymore? God Bless and Happy New Year, JB :)
