This post constitutes my 5000th to this forum. More than double the person in second place (JDP at this point). My profile shows I signed up here on the 2nd of October of 2004 - almost 26 months ago. If I recollect right, it was actually about 5 or 6 months before I started to post with any regularity.
Also in attendance were some folks I already knew from the newsgroup and there was also a fair number of "newbies" that had just discovered Studes or the internet. For personal reasons I'd sworn off the newsgroup and decided (with some encouragement from Sonny) this would be the forum I'd "hang out" on henceforth. It's been great. I've made lots more friends here and reaffirmed friendships from that other forum. [Might I add that I have NOTHING against the other forum - may it continue on and best wishes to those who are loyal to it. I just came to the conclusion that if I was gonna expend keystrokes regarding Studebakers, they ought to be spent on a club-sponsored forum.]
I've made gaffs here (and I try to acknowledge them when I realize I made them) and I've had BS pull a few posts that maybe were outta line. Some of those yanked posts were the result of my having such passion for all things Studebaker and just saying, flat out, what I felt about a given thing.[xx(]
I've actually backed off posting so much of late. We've had other purveyors of facts - some WAY MORE qualified than me - join our forum ranks thru the past year and I don't post if I think I can't be of help. Sometimes I'll duplicate what someone else has said IF I think I can convey the info a bit better. But Dwain, Bob, Ted, Mike, Jeff, JDP, Gordr, Rich, Gary, Gary & many many more, I consider more versed than myself in various facets of Studebakering. Too, I've been trying to get some other things done around the "ranch" here and that means getting away from this keyboard more often.:(
Still, the one thing that's echoed over and over by newcomers to this forum is the help and friendship they get. I can only assume that this means that other marque's forums aren't as welcoming and ready to assist.
Bob Shaw has asked me and others in the past to help establish a sort of FAQ of standard answers to things like removing rear hubs or setting valve or finding the bugs in an overdrive or some such. There's lots of that stuff already posted to the net and many times links to them are offered in response to a newbie's questions. Still - I'm of the notion that a response more personal than a "Look here" link, conveys more caring and welcoming, no matter how many extra keystrokes it involves. I think that approach is what fosters the fascination that we could be such a helpful bunch. It's a Whiz-Bang world out there. If it isn't instant, it isn't worth fooling with. But taking the time to share and care - however old fashioned that might be - that really impresses the recipient.
It's still Thanksgiving holiday today and this forum (more to the point, my friends that make it rock) is one of the things I'm most thankful for. May the likes of Matthew and other young-uns speak fondly of the good ol' days on the forum and in the club when they gather in South Bend for the 2057 International meet.;)

Anyway - 5000th post. Milestone?[:0] Millstone(grinds on you:() Kidneystone (causes you pain[xx(])??? or just another number.

There are quite a few things I'll never forget from this forum. I can see myself in years to come, telling everyone some of the stories of the great StudeBob on the SDC forum. :D

I always enjoy reading your very witty and knowledgable posts, because I know they come from years of real, first hand, hands-on experience, unlike a lot of people who can tell you the technical reason why this or that is so, but never have actually done it. Keep up the good work when you have time, Bob. We love ya![^]:) Rich.

But 5000+ posts only qualifies you as a Commander member? [?];)[?]

Being as seasoned as you are, and considering the prestige associated with Studebaker's most-notable prewar classic, I'm of the opinion you should be the first to receive a newly-inaugurated President Four Season status. [8D] BP

Wow! I wasn't really looking for praise, but I confess I'm certainly moved by it. Thanks.[:I]

As 2R5 indicated, I DO have a way of going on. In fact, aware of that as I am, I asked Bob a couple of times thru our day on the road together, if he wanted me to shut up. He said "No", but maybe he was just being kind.[B)] As I do with so many of my Stude friends, I wish we could all be closer geographically. Bob's probably happy he's safe in eastern Canada.[}:)] Anyway - on to 10,000 and more. Getting to interact with other Stude fans is all I ever hoped for from this "internet" thing. It's fulfilled that yearning more than I'd ever imagined. Again - THANKS !!!:D

A lot of water has gone under the bridge since the mid 70's.;) Yes, on occasion we'd see one another in passing at the National meets through the years, but since I've signed up here, it's almost like we talk on the phone...:) Amazing how you hook up with old friends, meet and make new ones, all on this magic box. Having signed up only about 8 or 9 months ago, I can readily see the tremendous amount of genuine help you supply to not only the "newbies", but to any and all that make a request. I agree with Bob Palma, you should be appointed a special title not just for the number of post you make, but the great amount of time and effort you put forth to help and even supply people with a needed part just for the cost of postage..[8D] Wow! what a guy.:) OBTW, remember, if it wern't for you, I probably wouldn't have the 63' Avanti I have today...and many thanks ;) Keep up the good work Bob, you deserve all the accolades given here! :D

Bob's a rare type who shares not only his experience and knowledge but his trove of parts. If he has it but doesn't need it and you need it but don't have it, it's as good as yours. He can talk a lot but what he says indicates he uses his eyes and ears more than his mouth. When he puts it down, you can pretty much believe it's going to stay there.

The time he has spent researching and responding to our questions has saved countless hours, days, even months of aggravation for many of us and, no doubt, attracted many to our club because he's the type of person we wish to be members with.

THANK YOU, BOB.

Congratulations, Bob.

I have not posting as much because you usually beat me and others to it, and you have good answers. I think your efforts to help people are sincerely appreciated.

A generic list of common issues is a good idea - it would cut down on stuff like tire sizes and how to clean out gas tanks. However, the incredibly inventive people in our clubs are always coming up with better & faster way of doing things, so the topics should be open, so that after thoughts can be added. For example, there was the recent discussion on frame paint. People's experiences with products do count!

Well I'll be darned! [:0] 5000 posts?! HELL of a job Bob! I dunno about you, but NEVER could I have imagined that when we first showed up here, (was it really THAT long ago? [:0]), and ,(being as delicate as possible here), when we had to "beat everybody up" to come join us, that the place would ever have taken off as well as it has!

Sorry to say, I've not been able to spend much time here, (although I try to make a quick "cruise" through every couple of weeks), but the racing site, work, real life stuff, etc. keeps me covered up. You said it exactly right Bob, it is well along in taking care of itself, and I must say, for that, I'm very proud of this place.

Congrats Bob, and hope ya keep on - keepin' on, with many, many more posts to come, you've been THE cornerstone here. (I TOLD ya it would be fun! :D[:o)];))

To Mr. Biggs,

Bob Kabchef(obviously an alias!)
and other nicknames not published here due to Forum rules!:D:D:D

Like others singing your praises, I add my congratulations and thanks for your prolific ponderings, prudent premeditation, and pithy postings that enlighten, delight, and educate.

Keep it up and some day the number I read will be 50,000 (unless I am recalled [|)][xx(] before then).

Bob,
Congratulations on your milestone and many thanks for all the knowledge that you've shared with the rest of us. You're almost an encyclopedia of Stude knowledge. No, you ARE an encyclopedia of Stude knowledge.
I have a lot of catching up to do regarding the number of posts on this site.

Mr Biggs is one of my heros -- a person I look up to and there aren't that many. In fact he is a role model for me. I am trying to be more like him because that would dampen my natural sarcasm and make me a better person. I read almost everything he writes.
I congratulate Bob on being a true diplomat, counsellor, and information storehouse for our group.
It doesn't even bother me that he talks a lot.

Congrats Bob,
I can't say much more than everyone else has said, except that I have met you and you are one, very genuine, knowledgable and giving individual. Thanks for all the companionship and assistance, cyber and otherwise, over the years. Hopefully much more to come!
Enjoy, you're in good company!!

I looked at 10 random Biggs contributions. They weigh in at about 300 words each. X5000, that's 1.5 MILLION words. Homer's Odyssey, depending on which translation, is under 130,000 words. Bob! You could have written nearly ten epic poems! You probably sacrificed literary immortality to bring a smile to the face of a few hundred folks every day.
And I for one am glad about that.

Now I know why when I look around outside on the weekend it is too peaceful. That's because no one is banging away on a Stude restoration. [}:)]

Allow me to add my congratulations on your milestone post, Bob. I come to it a little late, as I'm in Vancouver, and posting from my sister's PC.

Your posts on this forum have always brought light and wisdom, and no small amount of good humor, as well. Thanks for being here, and may you continue to be for many thousands of posts in the future.

I do have to say (besides congrats that is) is that this is the nicest, most helpful group I've ever run across on the Web.
