Before posting this, I looked and didn't see a specific topic with a Happy New Year title. I know some of you have added the greeting to your posts in other threads, but I thought I would offer one up as a way for us to share our best wishes toward each other unencumbered by agendas, issues, or distractions.

I truly wish all of my fellow Studebaker forum members a prosperous and Happy New Year! May we all find a way to enjoy the coming year, concentrate on what unites us in our Studebaker interests, seek the bright side, smile more than frown, and find ways to resist cabin fever. I have been up since 5: AM and I might not be awake by the midnight hour, so Cheers and best wishes to you all.:cheers::D:cheers:

If I don't post again tonight...I'll be back NEXT YEAR!;)

Happy New Year 2019!

New Years night in Indiana and the wind speed it 24 mph. About time to tie down the Studebaker!
My hope is we all have well running Studebakers and you bring them to the International Meet in Mansfield, Ohio.
Best wishes from Lark VIII girl and Husband of Lark VIII girl.

Thanks much, John. The Hawk is resting peacefully in the shop, but I am looking forward to some enjoyable time on the road next year. Here's hoping we all have some good Studebaker drive time in 2019.

Yes, Happy New years 2019.

Here is hoping 2019 is better than 2018. At least for me 2018 was not the greatest, what with my truck getting wrecked last summer.

As usual, I went to bed about 8pm last night but did wake up shortly before midnight to make a "quick trip". Got back to bed but then heard some folks setting off fireworks when the clock flipped. Not too many though. It was pretty cold and still windy out from yesterday's "blizzard" so I would not expect anyone loitering around outside long.

So far 2019 here starts off clear and cold with about -17F this morning.

Back to work tomorrow after being off since Dec 20th. I need to make sure to plug in the block heater on the car today sometime.

Thanks, John. At this point in life (older than you and the majority here), I use Healthy instead of "prosperous" in my New Year's Greeting.

December was not a great month for us. Thursday, I go to Fishkill for a CT scan and Friday, I go to Westchester for some other tests. This follows several doctor's visits, tests and Rx's through the month.

I wish a Happy and Healthy New Year to all of the SDC Forum members. This SDC Forum and the AOAI Forum are unwind times for me.

Best of luck and Happy New Years to you and everyone here. While you have me by a few years, there is no doubt at this point in our lives good health trumps prosperity by a large measure. Also appreciate your knowledge and contributions to both forums.

ditos to Bob and Gary, I'll be going in for by pass surgery at 5:30 in the morning so yes the health part is most important even at 59. i would appreciate any prayers or well wishes [I hope this does not violate the religion notice at the top of this page] Darryl Lewallen

Well wishes to all.
As for Studebakers, I finally got my 1964 Daytona convertible repaired and running again yesterday. Drove it out of my heated garage stall, then through the snow and parked it in the cold pole shed. Now I finally have my 2015 Charger parked in the heated garage stall again, so it is a great start to the new year!

For my first post of the year, I want to thank all who have responded in this thread.:) Our responses reveal that we are a diverse group of dynamic individuals actively engaged in one common pursuit (Studebakers) while experiencing life from many different paths. It is the sharing of these life experiences that enrich us all. For those with health issues, it demonstrates how precious life is and should serve as a reminder that we look after and care for our wellness. Already this morning, as I sit sipping coffee, watching the horizon as the dawn turn to day, I have taken a couple of oral medications and given myself an injection of insulin.

I realize that it was a half century ago that I was exposed to the chemical known as Agent Orange that would shape the manner in which I go about my daily routine so many years later. It also serves to let us know how fortunate we are to be creatures so adaptable...to research, learn, face the challenges, and overcome. Those facing health problems, including surgeries and recovery, indicate you are like the rest of us mere mortals living at the "speed of life." While these circumstances present challenges, it also presents an opportunity for us all to encourage and inspire one another.:)

For those currently facing health challenges, prayers and encouragement for you...just like how we approach our Studebaker maintenance issues (vapor lock?:rolleyes:)...study the situation, adapt (supplementary pump/pacemaker?;)), or choose a better fuel mixture (diet), and adapt.:) Our cars present a metaphor for ourselves...we all need a tune-up and maintenance from time to time.:whome::D

Yeah, when I was 21 my only health-care provider was a dentist. When my employer offered me health insurance, I was so dumb I had to ask my parents what it was for. Now I have a cardiologist, a urologist, a neurologist, a pulmonary specialist, an orthopedic specialist, an eye doctor, an otolaryngologist (sp?), a dermatologist, a nephrologist (sp?), -- and a dentist.

Managed to crawl past midnight eastern time, and even hang in there until New Years central time. :ohmy:
A couple seconds before midnight I raised my left foot; so I started the year out on the right foot. ;)
Best wishes to all.
