Well......... it's recent owners were not kind to it, which is far too common with old pro cars.

It is strange, not quite a week ago Lucille and I were wondering about this car. What a shame. Don't forget Tim, this car also belonged to you. I sold it on ebay to a "collector" who also owned a mortuary in Sacramento. It seems he was/is a collector of rust.

I have a friend and Studebaker owner who worked at USS Fairless Steel plant. Years ago he told me both Miller and Studebaker bought second line high carbon content steel. This steel he said rusts much quicker. There are two 67 Superiors sitting about 50 feet from the 76 and they have minimal rust. With the exception of the Flower Car the Henney Packards all of which have been here over twenty years are not falling apart as the Criterion is. Five or six years ago I junked two Millers a 71 hi top and a 73 Criterion that I drove here from Pittsburgh (300 miles) cause both were so rusty they were not worth keeping. Bear in mind it ain't Arizona here.

When most of us from the mid west and east coast think "California" we don't think of a car getting this rusty. I'm really surprised at this because the car was from McCook, Nebraska before we got it and pretty much rust free! I understand it recently sold to someone near Bakersfield and they are planning on a restoration.

Yes, I agree Tim. That car was extremely solid. I truly am amazed at the deterioration that occurred over the past fifteen years, since I sold it. Do you remember how good it looked at the Pittsburgh Meet in 2003?
