My pal is up at this event and has already called about several Studebaker (and other) items in the swap meet part of it this morning. Sounds like a fantastic meet ! Look at this set he found during his wandering around, I should have paddled over there, ha !

You're right Jim, and I wish we could have ! He's found an NOS box with an electrical voltage reducing unit in it up there in all his stash that he is going to bring over in the morning. He said it is what you guys used in all the 6 to 12 volt conversions you did.....BUT, he knows that I am about as electrically knowledgeable as a rock, so I'm treating him very suspiciously. I think he wants me to short out my "new" Studebaker and then he can jump in and buy it for a song to make a hot rod out of it, ha !! Hope you're doing well, I'll tell him howdy for ya' !
