    The following Truisms were written by the preeminent Automotive Journalist, Tom McCahill at various times during his 30 year career with

    Mechanics Illustrated.

    On the 1952 DeSoto: Rugged, tough, and reliable as the Rock of Gibraltarand just about as fast.

    Of the XL-120 Jaguar: It would have been better if they had just shoveled the unassembled parts into an old bag

    and shipped them parcel post.

    On the handling of the 1952 Nash: Like steering a three acre lot.

    On the 1959 T-Bird: It went over like a keg of brandy in a prison camp...but rolls like the Queen Mary in a full gale.

    On the 427 c.i. equipped Mercury Marauder: It has more hair on its chest than a middle aged yak.

    The swivel seats in a 59 Imperial: easy to get into as a floating crap game.

    The handling of the 1957 Buick: a fat matron trying to get out of a slippery bath tub.

    On the early 30s classic Imperials: These long hooded brutes had more sex appeal than a boat load of starlets

    anchored off Alcatraz.

    (source: Summit Daily News in Frisco,

    Colorado and by Save Us, Earl Scheib)

    Good morning and welcome to Sum-

    mit Up, the worlds only daily column thats won-

    dering what wed name a car company if we were

    to somehow (probably by accident) start our own

    car company. One name we definitely would not

    use is Studebaker. For one, its already taken,

    and two, it sounds so old-timey. It makes us won-

    der what the folks who started Studebaker were

    thinking even way back whenwhen they were

    living in old-timey times (of course, kind of like

    being a jerk, you dont realize youre an old-timer

    when youre in those old times).

    Of course, the old Studebaker automo-

    bilesome of which were pictured in the Summit

    Daily News articlewas named after a guy name

    Studebaker. Its not like someone came up with

    name because they thought it sounded cool (like,

    say, Elantra or LeCar or Gremlin). In fact, a

    quick look at reveals

    the fact that Studebaker actually started out as a

    company that made stuff like stagecoaches and

    carriages (the best part is the one of the original

    Studebaker dudes was actually named Clem

    Studebaker, which may well be the best name of

    all time).

    Anyway, the last Studebaker rolled off

    the assembly line in 1966, so its been a while

    since you could get your hands on one of these

    bad boys. Could it have been, we wonder, the

    ghastly green paint they used? Should they have

    stuck with traditional black and the sooper old

    timey look such as a 1917 model? After all, if youre going to call yourself Studebaker, youre going to have a hard time convincing

    young bucks to fork over for a set of wheels with a nameand a looklike that.

    Speaking of..what do you think the worst car name of all time is? Our personal favorite has and always will be the

    Daewoo Leganza, which of a few years in the 1990s was known as the Official Car of Summit Up. Of course, you cant buy

    Daewood vehicles anymore, either...mostly because in Korean Daewood means roughly, Studebaker, and just didnt stand the

    test of time. We out.

    (editors note: Tom & Beverly Wheeler sent me this article. They hosted a color tour and BBQ at their house in September. Tom invited

    Earl to stop by and take photos of the cars that were at his house).
