:D Lookin' good, Steve. That's adorable!

Speaking of the CARS movie, did you note the citation in the current Hudson Club White Triangle News? It seems as though a father and young sons were walking among the cars at the prestigious Pebble Beach concours this year when they came upon one of the rare Hudson Italias. [:0] Dad explained to the youngsters that it was a Hudson and one kid asked, "Is that related to Doc Hudson [of the CARS movie]?" :D You bet! [8D] BP

Yeah, that was a good story. And I admit...I did like the movie. Anne Goodman is really having fun putting Old Gus out in public. I think it's good for Stude trucks to get noticed, even in the work-a-day shape Gus is in. He has a certain ...shall we say...patina? You just want to pat him on the back every time you see him.

His tooth is in the cab. My son drives him around people think he's a real Tow Truck. He had to pull his tooth to open the hood. Gus had to jump start a car.
See he's still working.

I think everbody is going to have a soft spot in their heart for Gus.

Just keep him away from my Red-Headed Amazon. In case it's a "she" (I'm really not sure), she might be attracted to his rough exterior and his heart of gold! But I can't allow that, as I want to keep her around here awhile.

Almost done with Gus's Hat. He will have the wooden tow rig in the back. Norm's Signs of Fresno is donating the Eyes for Gus, they also made the door signs. This time he will have to have eyes that we can see through. They also are making magnetic Door signs for Mabel, That Say "San Joaquin Valley Studebaker Drivers Club". Bruce Novak is the owner Of Norm's Signs he just Joined our Chapter at out last Meeting. He has a 1951 Starlight Coupe Red ,Great addition to our Club. Thanks Bruce

Well its getting closer to Parade Time. We are working on the signs for the Studes in the parade. Maybe Wednesday we will work on Gus's Eyes. I finally learned how to Post pictures so as soon as I have new ones I will update the group. Gus is getting all excited about the Parade. David has been taking him to work to keep him occupied. He was home alone when we went to visit Mr. Biggs on Sunday. He behaved himself.
