This is depressing! Due to my cut in wages, the price of gas and various reasons for less attendance at car shows, I only put about 2100 miles on the Hawk last year. I don't remember if I used the wagon much. I gotta rebuild the trans before the May swap meet.

I'll have to make it a point to drive more!

"One after another they volunteered how in their families and in their
communities they were expected to be responsible for their behavior, how
honesty was assumed to be the rule, not the exception. They also talked
matter-of-factly about the sense of duty to their country, a sentiment not
much in fashion anymore."

I feel the pain. I think I only drove my 63 about 900 miles last year.And when I do go to take it out, the wife always asks "Do we have money for the gas in this?" which makes me feel a little guilty on top of everything else...

She may have bugs and she may have dings, but that just proves I drive this thing!!

Hey Claude I hope you make it to the swap meet in May. We haven't seen you in a year. I think I got older but don't think the little woman did. I put 3000 miles on the 51 about 500 on the 49 truck and 900 on the 48. And this year I have put 1500 miles on the 48 already.

Ya I had to let my 63 Champ sit in the garage a good part of this year,due to gas prices!!!not a happy camper by any means.it stays in when it rains or the roads are wet,though there were plenty of dry days it could have gone out.so I got stuck just driving my Toyota at 30 mpg.

Other than driving the Champ from Texas to Pennsylvania last summer, not too many miles on this end as well.


One would think that it would be a good time to find one of the Perkins diesel Larks - then I passed a station today where diesel was advertised for $4.19 a gallon. [:0]

I just went out to the garage to take a peek at Sweet Pea's log. I knew that I'd not been getting out as much as I have in the past, but wasn't ready for this number at all. It would appear that I put only 7063.2 miles on her in all of 2007. That's not an average number for me at all!!! Maybe I drove Baby a little bit last year as well [?] [?] [?]

I was afraid to look at how much a gallon of gas was 'back then'!!! [:0] :( ;) [V] [B)] :(

Took my GT to our local meet on Sunday. I think it was the first time I had put gas in it since last March. [:0] Needed a new battery in it too (still had the one in it that came with the car in '02).

I started to think about how many miles I covered in my studes last year. Total about 3,000 miles. At the moment petrol is around $1.45 a litre here in Australia. I think thet converts to about US$5.50 per gallon.

Hi Guys,
I think I spent GBP 3500.00 about US $7000.00on fuel last year driving Studebakers about 10,000 miles.

Price of gas today is US 2.08 per litre which is about $7.50 per gallon.

I have switched to driving my wifes Vauxhall Apology for this year as it is getting a little expensive to run my Studes every day. The money I have saved in the last few months has been amazing, but the driving totally bloody boring.
