Yes, it is! It's only about 25 miles from me, I might just have to go admire it.

Man, that IS a honey of a car!

I wish I had the money. Any bets on what it's going to close at?

Hey Todd, you could drive that back from OK in 2-3 days. Do I smell a bid and a road trip? [:o)]

I'd be living in the dog house (if I had one) if I bid on that! I may have to find one when the Lark is completed. I still have a Triumph Spitfire to sell too! They don't get much more solid than that one though..I make my "Hagerty Fantasy Bid" $17500..

I too would be in the dog house. And I'd gladly go too! Todd, do you know where the Gov't wharf is in Sarnia? How bout the Riverport (Canadian Ballet Emporium?!) One of my ship's is laid up there for the winter the Maumee (built 1929) Kevin in the Stoogebaker

Kevin, I am not familiar with those two places. I haven't been to Sarnia in about 10 years.

My travels lately take me to Sarnia and other ports on the Great Lakes. I heard one of the fellas mention a road trip in another thread and got the impression you lived there. Nice town. The girls at the Riverport Tavern seem very nice! Kevin in the Stoogebaker

I live about an hour from Sarnia but once my Stude is road worthy I'd be all for a road trip with a bunch of other Stude owners!

Kevin, I'm sure there's a few of us in the area. I'm about 45 min south of Sarnia on the US side. It's a nice little town, and I've been to the casino more than once. A friend's mom likes to go antiquing in a couple of the hamlets south of there. I spent a bit of time in St. Clair (MI)where a friend of mine lives.

Well your ship would be in sight when you cross the Blue Water bridge ;)

KevinSheen

The ship is at the Gov't wharf which is about 1/2 mile south of the Bluewater Bridge by the grain elevator. Like I said, the Maumee was built in 1929 and should really be a museum piece but she is a daily driver. I started this past shipping season on her, then got transferred to the Calumet, also built in 1929. For pictures check out boatnerd.com
Actually I have another reason for wanting to go to the area in my Champ. That would be Silvertone Exhaust Co. in Ingersoll. I know they make exhausts, but do they do the installation as well? Kevin in the Stoogebaker

I don't think Don does installations on his exhaust. You could call him. His garage is kinda full of pipe bending equipment and other "stuff". Nice guy though. I live in Ingersoll as well. I think there are more Stude fans per capita here than anywhere else in Canada!

Kevin...I had Don make my set up for my Champ but he only makes the tail pipes for straight out the back and since I have a spare tire bracket under mine there is no way I could run duals out the back so I just ordered the front pipes and mufflers from him theninstalled them myself and took it to another shop that would bend my tailpipes any way i wanted them ( which was out the sides ) so not to interfer with my spare tire. If you order your pipes he'll deliver them to the SB swap meet or York if your going. He does do a nice job on his pipes.

KevinSheen

I've got the underchassis spare tire set up as well, so I guess I'd have to have them come out the sides. I hadn't thought about that. I was hoping that he did the installation as well so as to forego the taxation that our respective gov'ts would charge.
And Sterling Heights? Is that across the river from Courtright/Mooretown? That general neck of the woods? Kevin in the Stoogebaker

Kevin, I'm approximately 10 miles north of Dertroit in the northeast suburbs. I'm about 10 miles west of I-94. I grew up a block or so off Lake St. Clair.

I know where you're at now. I pass by there on the ship everytime I'm in the not so Great Lake St. Clair. From the ship I can see the mansions of St. Clair Shores. Nice area. I'm hoping to drive to the ship after my first short summer vacation, so I could be cruising on by. Kevin in the Stoogebaker

Kevin...its not a big job putting the exhaust on anyways. As far as any tax on that stuff taking it back across to the states I think your under what you are allowed to bring back per day anyways. Bring someone else if you can because you'd both be able to bring back the same amount , that would cinch it for sure. Dons about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the border , very easy to find , hes only about a mile off the 401 which is the major cross Ontario link .

Oh and by the way ...I think the exhaust suites the truck better coming off the sides just behind the rear wheels ;) If you'd like I can send you a pic of mine showing the exhaust....haven't figured out yet how you post pics here :(

KevinSheen
01-19-2006, 05:45 PM
That sounds good. I haven't driven into or out of Canada in some time. Every time I cross the border its on a ship and they always seem to worry more about cigarettes than anything else. And yeah, I agree that the pipes would look right coming out behind the wheels.
I put 150 miles on the truck today and put in 10.3 GL. That's about 14.7 MPG. Almost all of those miles were highway at between 65-70mph. I figure the dual exhaust ought to bump that number up a little. Later Kevin in the Stoogebaker

Well you might get a bit better with duals ...I kept track of mine when we took it to Charlotte and back and I averaged just over 16 mpg and that was all intersate roads and about 65 to 70 mph. Had a few hills to climb as well so i didn't think that was too bad. I take you have a 289 in there? Thats what mine is .

KevinSheen
01-19-2006, 06:47 PM
Yup 289cid she be. And 16 mpg on the hiway was what I was figuring with the 2 1/4" duals. Also I was reading the thread on the tech talk section on the advantages/disadvantages of going with electronic or pertronix ignition vice the old points. It seems most everyone was going on about reliability. I had always heard that gas milage was one of the advantages. Could I have been (Gasp!) wrong! I thought I was wrong once, but I made a mistake.

I just visited with the son of the gentleman that is selling the car. I'm going to try to make it over to Guthrie this week-end, just to admire it before it leaves the area.

It's not every day I get to see anything this unique, old, original, and nice in my neighborhood.

I don't know if anybody here is bidding on it, but if you are, or think you might, let me know if there is anything you would like me to check out on it for you.
