Hi Michael,

Thanks for offering the link to these photos.

My college son, Alek (then @ Monash in Melbourne, but now back in the States as of 12 June), was at the meet on Saturday, and I've found him in several pictures. He's the tall thin guy wearing a backwards red colored St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap. He brought me back a meet booklet and tote bag.

Thanks again,

Gary Krautmann

Michael,
Looks like a very successful meet. Nice assortment of Studes.
Forgive me, but I really love that yellow '60 Lark convertible. I am, after all, addicted to Larks.

Hi Gary, I didnt get to meet your son, but I think my father did. I do remember seeing him there though. Did he enjoy himself at the show?

Michael,

Alek had a great time at the meet and, yes, he did meet your folks. Their contact info was in meet notice published in Turning Wheels, and when he spoke with them they suggested Saturday as the best time to attend. That worked out well as Alek was leaving that evening for Easter break in your Northeast.

He really enjoyed his time in Australia.

Thanks again, Gary

Fantastic photos, Michael. I'm intrigued by the green roadster(1923-24?). My 1927 parts book shows a magneto as an option, but until now I had never seen one on a Stude of that vintage.
