Absolutely stunningly beautiful day.
Bested 70 degree's.
People in shorts and T-shirts.
Vendor count seemed lower than in past years.
Lot's of chrome....
Met a load of people today.
Ate dinner at Peachy's (AJ Peachy & Sons)...
A buffet (how surprising;))
Great food.
Wore some of it home on mt Stude shirt[B)]...
Looking forward to tomorrow..

Glad you made it, Jeff. What did you do with the long johns? Cool look with the shorts.[:o)]:D I heard from one of the vendors that today was very slow and half of the normal vendors weren't there. Maybe tomorrow will pick up for everyone. Glad it worked out weather-wise so far.
Guido, big thanks for bringing up my deck lid. [^]

We were there today and the meet was good. The vendors were down a bit because the meet was held only six weeks after the national meet at Lancaster PA. Still a decent selection though. The meet should be back in full swing next year and it will be held later in Nov.2009. I believe on the 21 and 22.

Jim Turner and I just got back from Max Corkin's party...
Here's a first for y'all..
I was at Max's wearing just a golf shirt..No jacket,sweatshirt, or arctic parka.
There was no fires burning in any woodburners.
Had a blast.
Old stuff is still all there.
Just moved around to confuse us all;).
And the band?
They were great....
Good time tonight.
Thanks to all..

Its 8:53 Am as I write this. There was some rain earlier but it was light. Even with temeratures in the 50's it still not very cold. Heck it is November in the Mountains of PA. We will be at the meet around 9:30 as the meet usually closes up around 1 or 2 PM. It was fun, great folks and good show! We will be back in 2009, the good Lord willin!

Vendor count was down however there were new vendors there that have not graced the floors of Reedsville in the past. Pat Foster again made an appearance in a Studebaker meet and yes he will be in York next Feb/Mar. Gary Hearns was vending as well as Don Simmons. Keystone's raffle car was there. Tickets were a hot item for the 82 Avanti. Also can be purchsed on the Keystone website also. Went looking for BondoBilly but he was conspicuously absent but his corner was occupied. Will be back to normal next year.

We are a bit upset that we missed the show, but Ellen was unable to get the time off. She started a new job 90 plus days ago and they allowed her to take off the time for Lancaster. We will be there next year, and I undersatnd it is later than this years dates.

Saturday was even better than Friday with far more cars and attendees showing up. Light rain in the early AM only but weather was still mild and in the high 50's. Got those final few parts that will kep me busy through winter. This is definitely a meet to attend as it is the last swap meet in the NE/Mid Atlantic in 2008. Next one will be the Keystone Divison National swap meet at York in March 2009.

It was good to meet you too. I did a typo on your forum handle, sorry!

Those parts in front of me at the table are still mine. I brought them home, but I did have a successful time selling parts. It paid for my room, food, gas and also some profit!

My post Reedsville summary...

This is more of a social event for me.
A chance to meet up with Studefriends and look around amongst my kind of 'stuff'..
Interesting to see the different groups head off to their respective dinner places.
There were at least four groups of friends going to four different restaurants...at four different times.
My dilemna was to choose which invite that was offered (and they were ALL appreciated![:p])..
Ended up going to 'Peachies'...
Why?
They were eating at 5pm, and I was hungry:D..
(The hot dogs were...well...er..uh.. not altogether satisfying)
Went to Max Corkins for the 'party' and enjoyed the social conversations upstairs.
Darned rock and roll music was too loud downstairs to talk much;).
Hey, wait a minute..
That describe's Max's place pretty well..
The Max Corkin Mosh Pit[:p]
The band was a real treat.
When they all showed up they got to jammin', and they were really a pleasant surprise.
The Quality Inn (Formerly the Clarion...formerly the Holiday Inn) was kind of a bust...
Last year they had a full serve breakfast.
This year, all they had was the cheap-o freebie breakfast bar, and even that was poor by road warrior status..
I planned on walking the Saturday new stuff and bailing out early.
Every time I made a half lap, I got to talking to somebody new about something important..
(or so it seemed at the time;)) and another 15 minutes was toast.
Only bought a few essential items..
A couple of vintage TW's that had some interest to me...
Bought some intake gaskets from Meyer's... (20 pair, or so[:0])..
Picked up some chrome from JimmiJim for Jerry Forrester delivery, and bought a clip thing indirectly for Dan White's GT Hawk..
Took off about 1pm and cruised down to Annapolis, MD (I have to work around there on Monday) and went over to JP's to play cars...
(Where I'll be heading again after I post this)
Helped JP and Nate take the head off of an R2 '64 Avanti 4spd..
Looked like it had a bad head gasket.
Good news was it didn't look too bad in the wet hole.
Ought to clean up OK..
Bad news was the exhaust manifold bolts were very uncooperative,
Nate used his superhuman strength and ended up breaking the exhaust manifold off and spinning the two broken pieces off the end port on the head.
Still had to heat one stud to unscrew it.
I swore, I would've bet $10 that cherry red stud would have twisted right off..
But, I was at JP's, and one should never, ever bet there.
Sure enough...
JP heated it, and Nate twisted it...
(My important job was holding the drop light and a brewskie[:p])..
The stud made awful squeaky noises and begrudgingly twisted out.
JP's lucky horseshoe worked again.
(And it was humorous to watch Nate grab that red hot horseshoe (stud) with his mechanic's glove and waft a huge cloud of smoke out followed by an autononic reaction[:0][B)]...
His comment was something about it doesn't take long to look at a red hot horseshoe[:0]..
Fun couple of days...
(You have to cram it all in fast when the clock is running;))

That Lark was a steal at that price.
I looked at it real, real close.
The interior was perfect (except for the dash pad, and that's expectable).
The body was straight arrow.
All I would say it needs is a set of tires, maybe some door and truck rubber, and a Maaco paint job.
Shoot, a good buff and wax would make it very presentable.
I was real surprised it wasn't snapped up at that price...
One clean, pristeen original car.

The six and automatic made me walk away from the car even at that price. Add $1000 for a cheap paint job and odds and ends for a decent driver, but not a car that I could turn. Still, surprised it was not snapped up by frugal club member, not many rust free drivers out there for that money.
I felt the same way about the 53 I bought. I had to ask a half dozen friends why I should not buy the car since it seemed a bargain to me, but no one else seemed interested. It must have been the hemi swap that turned them off.

:) Did anyone there (or here!) notice the irony on that plain-jane 1962 Lark? I doubt if it means anything, but the 3-letter prefix on that license plate is GSA. That could stand for Government Services Administration, the U. S. government bureau that would have bought and later sold at auction, that very type of car from the Government Motor Pool. That struck me as amusing.

Looked at it but decidied at length but them decided that Jim;s Daytona was a more attractive piece for our raffle. Keystone Club member will probably purchase the the Lark from Studeguy this week. JP is correct it will make a nice daily driver or club events car.

JDP

Just a question out of curiosity about raffle cars. I wonder how the return on investment works. For example, does the chapter make more more money in the long run by buying a cheaper car and risk fewer ticket sales, or are sales pretty consistent. I only ask because I'm one of the guys that would not buy a ticket for a car I would not normally collect.

It really depends on the car. As an example many people thought we were crazy for buying and raffling off that little Lark this year. However, the ROI on the car was one of the best we have had since we raffled off the Gold 63 R-1 Avanti 4-spd in 2002. Generally we look for cars that do not require a large amount of work. While we have many talented people the cost of repairs needs to be figured into the car. As for the ticket sales, some cars bring in less sales than others but throughout the years they have remained fairly equal across all models. Sales also have been fairly consistent from one year to the next and that always helps.

11-10-2008, 10:08 AM
so "rerun" will be next year's raffle car? I'll definitely be buying tickets again. I bought some for the red Avanti II as well, for me a V-8 is a "must" and I feel more inclined to buy tickets when a car is so equipped.

I for one always buy $5.00 worth of tickets no matter what Studebaker they are raffling off . There are ones I'd rather win then others, of coarse, but hey I've never won much of anything in my life so I'd be happy winning an old rust bucket probably ;)

Thanks Bob we appreciate your purchase and who knows your number may come up on the Avanti or if not maybe on the Daytona next year. Nate you are correct some people buy more tickets if it something they want while others don't care much what it is they just want to see if they can win it. We just appreciate all of the ticket purchases.

Yes, like you Bob P., the prefix on the plate also struck me relative to the style/equipment of the car. I dismissed it because the plate is not a U. S. Government plate, the plate looks new and, I believe, that plates do not go with the car when it is sold in Pennsylvania (like NY).

For those that do not know Denny, you can trust him relative to information on the car (and anything else).
