View Full Version : Canadian Forum Members

11-06-2010, 02:52 PM
I am trying to get some idea as to how many active forum members we have here in Canada. Is there a way to find a breakdown? Or in the northwest? BC, Alta, Wash, Idaho
Oregon, etc.
Would love to get more of our local chapter members involved in the Forum! Seems like such a natural way to share information, parts searches, info on local Auto related events, etc, etc,
Any suggestions on how we can expand our forums membership???

Hi Terry
boy you are close. Tell us about your cars.

11-06-2010, 03:07 PM
Brian, you can count me in too. I don't know if there is a way to track certain posters on this forum, or if there is a way to create a distribution list to contact local posters or not...anyone know? How's the chop coming? Was it you that had a complete 289 for sale, or were you looking for one? Later, Junior

11-06-2010, 03:19 PM
The best way to find out is to have them (hopefully) Just make a list right here..... I'd say there are likely more SDC people online in the NW than anywhere else, probably 50-60 members from WA alone.


11-06-2010, 03:22 PM
Well, there's myself, about 80 minutes out of Calgary, and Craig, 8E45E, who is in Calgary.

11-06-2010, 05:17 PM
Brian, of course you know I'm from the Island. ;)

Where in Wa. are you "S"
And Thanks guys for checking in. For you Hamilton guys, did you see my post on the 54 that is being parted out in Sudbury?

11-07-2010, 12:12 AM
Down in Everett (Dang it) Wa.! I spread the word on our club and forum when ever I get the chance. I think the best way is to show the cars; and if you can, have a stack of free pamphlets about the club and forums.

Ran into a guy from B.C. at Bellingham, the first of Sept. He had a reddish orange 53 with a cream top. But from what I gather he doesn't get on these forums much.

I'm pretty close eh? Ferndale, WA. You might want to start a WA thread.

11-07-2010, 11:22 AM
It would be a lot easier to figure out if members would include their location in the profile.

11-07-2010, 01:35 PM
The webmaster has asked and insisted that profiles be filled out and complete as possible.
I think it is rude to leave it all blank, and vague.
Not with the spirit of Studebakering at all.

It would be a lot easier to figure out if members would include their location in the profile.

I'm the Stude guy from Holland Landing, Ont. which is north of Toronto near Newmarket. I follow the forum regularly.

11-08-2010, 09:59 PM
This is great to hear. At least I know there are people watching, even if you are not posting a lot.
And yes! I t would be helpful if there was more info in your signature info. I have had lots of private replies from a lot of Great People from the Forum, because all my information is easy to see.
Thanks Guys and Gals (Judy) Lets Keep this info coming and post a picture or to of your car if you can. We all enjoy pictures! Right Junior! We all want to see that Calgary Snow!!

11-08-2010, 10:40 PM
Checking in from Manitoba. Not much going on here. Working on a 64 Daytona that my dad bought new from Capital Motor Sales in Kingston. Ont. A guy down the street is working on a '53 or '54 HT and there is also a 35 Dictator on our street. He is not a SDC member and will not join. Just found a C-cab truck last week 4 miles from home. Solid restorable vehicle.

Hi Ken
We are looking for testimonials on "Rack & Pinion" Steering!! How do you like it and what have you done?

11-09-2010, 11:17 PM
Mr. Wayne ...Are you a member of the Edmonton SDC? What Studes do you have? Just an inquiring mind.


11-10-2010, 07:55 AM
I've got a modified so not sure this is any help, but...

I have a Mustang II setup susp. with R&P power rack. i find it twitchy with GM pump, I've lowered pressure and it still seems very sensitive, too much so in my opinion. I expect this winter to replace it with a manual rack.

Captain Billy
11-10-2010, 10:47 AM
Johnod....this 'over-pressure' problem seems to be common. One solution is to switch to a '98' Dakota saginaw pump using a Allan Grove bracket to mount it.

If you want more info PM me.

Good Morning Bill
What motor will the recommended Allen Grove Bracket fit? Studebaker or SB Chev.

Captain Billy
11-10-2010, 01:52 PM
It's for a SBC.

11-10-2010, 02:19 PM
Hi again Bill
Where do I look for this bracket and do you have a picture of it? I have a 49 International truck I am building. It is on a 98 Dakota chassis c/w new Dakota rack. But I have a SBC in it. So the bracket that would mount the Dakota pump to the SBC is just the ticket. Why reinvent the wheel if someone has already done it.

Have you got any pics of your '52 ?
I have a soft spot for those ' 52 2drs......used to own 2 of them , one being my 1st car back when i was a kid .

Steve T
11-11-2010, 09:25 PM

I still remember your grey '52...in fact there's a pic of it from a long-ago Mapleview cruise night somewhere among my P'bucket albums. Did you ever have a look at the blue '52 2dr that was for sale in Waterdown?


11-11-2010, 09:37 PM
Was that a HT?

Steve T
11-11-2010, 09:52 PM

Nope, Champion 2dr sedan, same body style as your grey one, but it was sky-blue. Baby moons on the wheels. No idea how stock it was mechanically, but the body was unmodified. I liked it a lot...course I'm a sucker for blue two-door Stude sedans...


11-11-2010, 09:52 PM
How about a nice 53 C/K coupe? For Sale in Wa. $3500.00
or are any of you Westcoast, Wa. or B.C. guys looking for a 56 Skyhawk???
It is Stateside.
PM me.

Steve T
11-11-2010, 09:57 PM

Were I on the other side of the continent, and had I a job at the moment, maybe...my very favourite Stude would be a '54 Commander Starlight, and this one in WA sounds close and at a modest price. (There's a '53 Champion Starlight near here that's on offer...I want it rather badly, but it's not to be, not in the near term anyway.)


11-12-2010, 02:55 PM
I posted 3 pics of my 52 2 door in the General Specific Discussion area. It is a mild custom
car, so if you like only restored cars, don't look. Joe

Hey Steve P--

Was that you at the Ancaster show/swap a couple weekends ago, or was it the Downies? Saw a maroon '50 on arrival, but it was gone by the time I parked. That show had a surprisingly good turnout for a chilly, cloudy day...

Bob (et al)--

Here's that pic of the grey '52 at Mapleview way back when.



Steve T
11-12-2010, 08:23 PM
...And FWIW, here's the blue '52 from Waterdown, seen this past July at the Dutch Mill show.



11-12-2010, 08:42 PM
Yes Steve that was us in our "new " car, Kevin was also there when we left.

Steve T
11-12-2010, 08:46 PM

Yep, saw Kevin's GT, and also Basil's gorgeous blue 53 Starlight Regal streetrod over in the paved area. Not a bad Stude turnout for a multimake event that isn't primarily a show as such...


11-12-2010, 08:53 PM
That blue one used to belong to Gene Mejanovick and after Gene had it it was given away with a new home .

Steve T
11-12-2010, 09:01 PM

The 2dr post in Waterdown? Didn't realize that had been one of Gene's. Cool. Gene had a hand in getting me interested in Studes many years ago...I interviewed him on tape about the subject for a practice radio spot when I was in college. At that time he had two '51s, a green 4dr and a red Starlight.


11-12-2010, 10:00 PM
Roly & Jim were there but didn't bring their Studes.
Got all the leaks etc fixed in the GT, back on the road next week.
