Well, I'm disappointed...my truck still sits, full tank of gas, ready to roll. But, I just couldn't allow myself to make the ten-hour trek. Monday was used up getting my mom (97) to her cardiologist. Tuesday, was my annual physical exam (I passed:!:), and then yesterday I had to drive my wife for an ENT exam for some tests trying to determine why she is having vertigo (balance) issues. Although the test seemed to go well, she had some residual effects from the tests and didn't feel well.

My health issues (agent orange/Vietnam related diabetes) I have been able to adjust to and maintain fairly good health. So, I was ready for the ten-hour drive, but somehow, there seemed to be a little spirit whispering in my ear "They need you."

Therefore, I made coffee a little after 5:AM contemplated the situation and decided not to leave.:( So, if anyone remembers the camera that is on your phone, how 'bout taking some pics and post them here. Vendors, customers, forum members, cars, and parts. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has good reasons for not being able to attend. A good collection of pictures would be a nice consolation and hopefully an inspiration to motivate us to try to make the next one!:)

You know you made the right choice though. I'm sitting here at work, the clock will go slow today. But at least I'll get tomorrow in. Looks like we will get the weather we should have had last year for the national meet. Pics for sure.

Well...a good example where not all "CONVERSIONS" are religious. And to think...all I requested was a few posted pics of the meet. No mention was made as to the method. With the latest controversy over privacy breaches, censorship, and other issues of social media...I feel a bit vindicated for staying away from those venues. However, my main reason still applies...TOO MANY RELATIVES!http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/images/smilies/wink2.gif

2- if you don’t agree with Bob Andrews, you are backward, small minded and an old fogey just like all other Studebaker owners- which I resent- because I’m significantly younger than You, Bob.

I resisted Facebook for a number of years because it seemed to be a place that excelled it discussing minutia and posting pictures of a last meal. Then Judy got interested because it was her only way to stay in contact with family members on a daily basis. I must say she took to it like a crow on a road kill carcass so I got the info I needed through her.

A while back there were enough references to Stude/Avanti material on it to pique my interest so I said WTH and joined up. I found what I wanted but paid for it with an interminable amount of notices and offers to friend that I came very close to ash canning the whole thing. I finally found the magic button that let me turn off all the offers and notifications so I remain in peace when I want to look at the content and then just move on without a trail of notifications following me out.

Do they have my info, yup, but so do another hundred or so websites and several content providers so I'm paying the price for the info I want just like several billion other folks on the planet.

For you old codgers that keep resisting, give it a try. If you don't like it, opt out and go on with life.

I'm an "old fogey" at age 55. I enjoy the forum, and browsing the internet, but I've noticed that most people that I know with facebook, seem to waste a lot of time watching it. It's definitely a free world, so I'm happy for those that enjoy it, but I have better ways to spend my time. I have a smart phone, but it's not glued to my hand. It's just convenient at times to check ebay, or google some unknown.

Bob-
I think maybe we've had this conversation before . . . . . .

We should all get to spend our free time doing what we want, and not let pressure from others influence our behavior. I have stopped recommending movies and TV shows to others (and have stopped watching those recommended to me) because I have discovered that I don't LIKE what many other people like. I admit to being an old fogey, but I can't do anything about that. What I CAN do is spend my free time doing something I want to do.

When I finally retired after 50+ years of working in various capacities for the Navy, I said I wanted to spend more time: (1) reading more books, (2) drinking more beer, and (3) working on my old cars and trucks. I have largely failed in all three for a variety of reasons, one of which is that I spend too much time sitting in front of a computer (something I actually got paid to do for the last 25 years of employment) -- so I am not looking for ways to expand my screen time even further. I have a stepson who actually works for Facebook, and last year got the tour of the Menlo Park HQ -- so I'm under some modest pressure to sign on. But I have no living relatives on my side of the family, and I get enough Studebaker lore on this forum to satisfy me. If that confirms my image of an old fogey, so be it.

Skip, not a thing wrong with that. If one does not want more and better avenues to pursue what they are interested in, that is a reasonable choice. But as I’m sure you have seen, there are plenty of irrational reasons based on complete ignorance of the venue why some don’t join Facebook. Even worse, people completely fabricate out right lies about it, I guess to make themselves feel intelligent or something. And when they are called on it for what it is, you can see them freak out – including some examples in this thread.

On Facebook I am a member of several pages related to varying interests, mostly auto related. Last summer I did a tutorial on rebuilding a pair of lark fenders; the usual rest area along the back edge, and the eyebrows. I had other fenders for the car; the point was to show a pair being rebuilt that most would throw away, and that it can be done. I documented the process with photos every step of the way; very simple, posted directly to Facebook. No figuring out a host, and creating links, only to worry that eventually sad host will leave all my photos high and dry – like Photobucket did here.

I posted the process on a few different Facebook pages. Most everybody was happy to see the process. Interestingly, the only snide comments I got were on a Studebaker page- same nonsense that goes on here. But even then, it was very minor. Most people like to network about their interests and advancing their knowledge of same. Facebook does that in spades, easier and quicker than anywhere else. Why people are so afraid of it, to the point of making up out right lies about it, escapes me.

Some people use it to chit chat with other people about next to nothing. Of course, you don’t have to do that if you don’t want to, and I do not. There are very few people that I actually follow; our use it just about all for business and personal interests. You do not have to except or consort with anyone, anywhere, you don’t want to. It’s just the natural progression of things; Facebook has made the old-time newsgroups obsolete. Eventually, something will probably come along and make Facebook obsolete. Until then, I’m going to continue to recognize that life is short; that I’ve already lived way more than I have left; and I’m going to use and enjoy whatever time I have left to the best of my ability.

And, that involves two things: forward thinking, and not giving the slightest damn about anybody’s efforts to keep me from same.

Thank you for your always rational comment, my friend. If you will excuse me, I am off to live my life as full as I can :)

Hey Bob, lately, when someone asks how I'm doing, my rather corny response is, "Better than just about everybody I know." And, these days there's some truth to that. Since I didn't get to make the trip all the way to South Bend, yesterday, I accompanied fellow riders in my church's motorcycle ministry to a rally in Maggie Valley, N.C. There was about a dozen in our group. They stayed for the weekend, but in the afternoon, I returned alone by way of the Pisgah Forest and lots of mountain twisties. At the end of the day, only a little over 200 miles. While not a Studebaker meet...it was an enjoyable consolation trip.

I enjoyed our little meet and fellowship at the last York swap meet. It took several days for my eyes to get over the bright graphics on the CHEVY IMPALA jacket you were wearing.:rolleyes:;)

Number 162 of only 165 built, with patina galore and just made operable by Dick and Rex Miltenberger with a new head gasket and fuel and brake system work.

This car had to be seen to be a appreciated. Gorgeous in a way only a rare, low-production, unrestored prewar car can be. Thanks for saving it and bringing it to the show, Richard and Dick. :!!: :cool: BP

Fantastic!!!:!::) Even on an overcast day...modified...restored...or cloudy patina...these vehicles exhibit their glorious heritage of rugged individualism and progression of vehicle design through the years.:)


Quinn's '37 coupe, post#46, is a car I often drive in my (day) dreams...as I contemplate the golden age of auto elegance, and the following compilation of pictures inspires one to wonder...what could've been...if history's circumstances could have provided a "tweak here," or "leadership decision there,"...(sigh):rolleyes: But, on the bright side...if Studebaker were in business today, would we have the "preservation passion" today for their aging relics???

Likely not. Instead, we'd probably be members of an obscure "Odd People forum," bored to tears, and taking potshots at each other.:rolleyes:;)

Well, Mr. Palma, not all were able to attend this year's swap meet in South Bend, where it appears the weather was much more cooperative this year than it was last year. Instead, I attended our local swap meet 90 miles north of here, and did find a few Stude items; none of which I specifically needed, but the price was right for each item and will be good trading material for those who need it.

As for dinner, many members from our chapter and the Edmonton Chapter met at Tony Roma's after it closed at 8:00 PM on the Friday. Everyone said their food was great, but no one bothered to take any pictures of what we all ate!!

Hey, I thought I'd offer a "SHOUTOUT" to Jim Maxie (DieselJim) and his Lark Wagon!:!: I had one of these years ago (unrestored). At that time I had too many projects and had run out of room to store it inside. So, I sold it to a co-worker who sold it to someone who sold it....(you know the drill.)

I will show my wife how it could have been if I had kept it. However, I'll bet she will say something like, "It would have been great, as long as you don't get a pair of those coveralls!":o;) I have communicated with Jim on this forum, and now realize I have also had conversations at past meets in person. However, to this day, if we met walking down a street, I probably wouldn't recognize him, face to face. After this pic though, I'm certain I'd recognize those coveralls!:!:

At that time I had too many projects and had run out of room to store it inside. So, I sold it to a co-worker who sold it to someone who sold it....(you know the drill.)

The drill? It will ultimately end up back in your yard!!

A few I took. Mine are heavy on the convertibles, because my wife needs one.
As a bonus I did find the bumper guard I needed too. I knew somewhere in that building there had to be a left inner front bumper guard. It took a whole lotta hunting, but I found it.
I probably got the "hard luck" award this year, I was stuck on the road side pulling and cleaning the fuel filter on the way down and also on the way back. Not an easy task as it's tucked up behind the tank - but at least I didn't end up on the flat bed. I'm dropping the tank and the whole system out this week for a full redo.

:) Back to the topic at hand is Dick Quinn's "new' 1937 President Rumble Seat Coupe. It was fresh out of 40 years' somewhat dry storage by the original owner's family followed by too many years in a storage lot covered by a tarp :eek:. IMHO, it was the hit of the show.

Number 162 of only 165 built, with patina galore and just made operable by Dick and Rex Miltenberger with a new head gasket and fuel and brake system work.

This car had to be seen to be a appreciated. Gorgeous in a way only a rare, low-production, unrestored prewar car can be. Thanks for saving it and bringing it to the show, Richard and Dick. :!!: :cool: BP

Thanks Bob. Big straight eight performed well in 15 miles thru city traffic. Car has an interesting history and its purchase required about 2 1/2 years and three attorneys! Thanks to Frank Robert the original owners son we got the job done! Much too long and convoluted a story to detail here but had lots of help from Rex Miltenberger who did most all of the mechanical work and Chester Bradfield who assisted in picking up the car in Virginia. The car had spent most of its past 40 years in a garage in New Jersey, see photo composite below. It was bought new in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Have complete history from new.

I know you retired from your regular contributions to Turning Wheels some time ago. But, please give us the "LONG AND CONVOLUTED STORY" in a future edition! I came upon the SDC scene with only my '55 Truck as my main Studebaker focus. That was back in the mid-1970's. The very first '37 (36?) coupe I ever saw was at one of my first SDC meets. At that time, it belonged to Calvin Walker, Union, SC. I believe it was later sold to Bob Yale (RIP), and I don't know where it is now. Heck, I don't even know if the few I've seen are Dictators or Presidents. What I do know, is that they are the kind of vehicle that leaves you thinking..."DID I REALLY SEE THAT?":drool::confused:

In the 40+ years, I have been attending meets and gatherings, I could count all the times I have seen a coupe of this vintage on one hand and have fingers left over. PRESIDENTS...even more. So...I'll look forward to "THE LONG STORY.":!:

Yes, these cars are pretty scarce especially the Presidents (only 7 known survivors). This body was used only in 1936 and 1937. The '36s had hinged windows (at the top), both front and rear whereas the '37's were fixed. I also have a '36 about 90% completed. Yes, I may do a story on the car's history and the long journey involved in purchasing it.

JoeHal1: At my office, too many people were frittering away the day on FaceBook so the IT staff restricted it. If you try to go out through the Internet to a restricted site, you get an error message. This forum is not on the list so I can see the pictures here.

Wow, I can hardly believe it. I am actually in one of the pictures! At our chapter meetings and other events, I am usually the one taking pictures so I am not in any of them. Joe and I got in this one while we were talking to the Studebakers about their Studebaker pickup. :)

I can view pictures from majority of posts in this thread,but a few posts,like the preceding two posts,have the message "Attached Thumbnails" indicating there are pictures attached,yet there is no way to open the thumbnails to view pictures. Any ideas how to view the pictures? Thanks!

I’m just saying the truth. It gets beyond tiring to see people who won’t even bother finding out what Facebook actually is, and just act like it’s some terrible thing. Especially here, where it reinforces the image that Studebaker people are nothing but old fogeys.

Prudent people who know what FB actually is may not want anything to do with it if they value their privacy.

Given all the rancor over Facebook this might put a little humor back into the subject. Especially starting at 0:23.

Well, then, I know my father (a painter who can now do it full time after being a VP at Smith-Barney) would appreciate this! I think I'll just go ahead and send it to him...
