Tim is referring to the Studebaker factory machine that the tailgate would be dropped into, then squeezed and then painted. It was so cool.
I saw it when we were all there waiting in line for the Studebaker Truck Farmers dinner at SASCO and I thought it would at least make a great coffee table base and maybe even be usable to paint my tailgate letters down the road.
When I went back to purchase it, it was sold and Tim is the lucky owner!!!!!! I should remember to never hesitate when one find these wonderful things.
Maybe he can post a picture or two - it is really cool.
