Robert Black here.Just thought Id sign up and drop in.I own a most reliable 62 Lark Daytona(259) Hardtop thats my regular all year driver untill the snow and salt hit the roads,along with my Harley Davidson Low Rider.I also have a 56 Transtar with a 63 full flow V-8(259) that I just got on the road this summer and really love it.Its not finished yet,but I drove it everyday for a month and its a real good truck,just needs a bit of finishing.My current project is a 60 Hawk that Im going to be real busy this winter working on.Ive owned about 20 Studebakers over the years and I think it would be hard to surpass the three I own now,so Im calling them keepers.But if I ever got a chance to own a 55 Presiodent State Hardtop I might make an exception to that(G)I follow the NG everyday,but Ill be checking on this forum too.

Hey Charlie, you did better than me, I never got any! BTW, I tried sending you my new email address, but your spambox downed it. I went to wireless, so it is sroberts at onlyinternet.net now. Still have the Hotmail address too.

Thats ok Sam, when that happens it puts it in a folder where I can access it later.

The local NAPA guy had to call in a favor from the guy in Clarksville,IN to get the '37 woody. Before I picked it up two other people came in and saw and ask to buy it.

I bought 2 (the only two NAPA had here) and gave one to a grandson for his Birthday.

Miscreant at large.

The local NAPA guy told me "they normally had to buy them by the case and they arent returnable". He just happened to know a guy in a another store who had some.

Ive got the 60 Hawk stripped to the bare body,all chrome,trim,bumpers removed.Im going to work on the fuel system next,put a Stromberg back on it,it has a Mopar carb on it now,move the elactric fuel pump back by the tank and put in a switch for it,install a new mechanical fuel pump,and put new gas line on all the way.Then Im going to tune up the engine so it works good.
