I have returned after a bit of a hiatus. Is that how you spell that? Even now, my online time is extremely limited, however, and my time for posting is almost nil. But I will lurk whenever I get the chance and try to worm a post in every so often.

But this to me was just too cool to ignore (and posting it is going to make me late back to work!!)

This weekend after a car show on the drive home, the ol' 63 Lark turned her clock over. She now has 100,000 miles on the original drivetrain. I know that many of you have LOTS of more miles than that, but I think it is cool. I was able to grab my camera phone and record the few seconds as the clock turned over. Now you can all share in the fun!

I am glad I caught that! (and it also shows my horrible math skills at the end...what year is it?)

Yeah, I put about 150 miles on it since I made that video. All the zeros are nice and straight now![8D] (but I was looking at it the other day and it looks like time for a front end alignment. Time to go back under the knife![:p])

My '75 Grand Am turned 100,000 miles while we were in South Bend for the 1983 International. I know that doesn't thrill you much, but we were thrilled because we got a personal tour of George Krem's R3 Avanti at the time. We attended some meet function away from the meet hotel, but the organizers forgot to make some transportation available back to the hotel for George and his wife who were left stranded at the end of the event. George approach us, asked if we were Studebaker people, and asked to bum a ride back to the hotel. We were, of course more than happy to oblige.

So, the Grand Am (white, red interior, 400 blue-block) turned a milestone and we had the SDC president and his wife on board!!
