A real car

My first car was a Studebaker--ahead of its time, and doomed... I visited the Oklahoma History Center Saturday with our guest, Dr. Sridhar Krishnaswami of SRM University in India. It is one classy outfit, one of four great museums in Oklahoma City. We came across this beauty. I'm in love.

  1. That is one beautiful car Dr. Clark. My first ride was a 1967 Ford Mustang Coupe. Candy-apple red with a 302 small block. Got to love the old school wheels.
