    The rain this morning wasn't bad, but that hail stung.
    Non of which seemed to dampened the enthusiasm of the buyers.
    I watched a lot of good cars and stuff move out all day.
    All the volunteers were great, Thank You.
    Those two boys seemed to be good kids, polite, helpful, nice to see that.

    'Good reports, guys, and encouraging. 'Happy to hear that the parts and cars are being sold cheap enough that they go away to be ultimately used in the hobby one way or another, as opposed to somebody wanting too much money for them and they wind up lost to "recyclers." Thanks, all. BP

    yes, family are all nice folks & want to see Chuck's stuff go to those who appreciate & can use it rather than get baled up & sent to China. There are many solid but ambitious builder cars selling in the $3-500.00 price range. I wish I would have brought a bigger trailer!

    Thanks for that information, John. I have a couple of cars in mind that I could not get because my trailer guy was not available this weekend. I already put him on notice for the 4th.

    With all the 50-51 cars, it would be easy with that great deal to put together one great iconic Studebaker. I saw several other possibilities as well.

    Thanks to all the people helping put on a great meet and sale.

    It is about 9:30 AM monday and I just got out of bed after a 16 hour 950 mile drive home with an empty trailer, I did not go down with anything in mind but I never leave home with out the trailer. did get a few things that fit in the bed of the truck, rear end, 57 hawk trunk lid, and 63 wagon gas tank all items I have people needing. It took us 16 hours to drive down on Friday all in full rain all the way but it was worth the trip and lots of people came from a long way both for parts and for Chuck, the crew working the sale were perfect and most friendly, I left at 10 AM on Sunday so don't know who won the bidding on the cars with bid sheets. I bid on one and will be going back on the 4th to get it . it is one I have always wanted but could never afford ( 1990 Avanti 4 door) now I have one. Sat. night My friend Ken, myself, Bill and Sonja Ozzard, Dan Manko and grand son I think, had a nice steak dinner and some good time talking and swapping stories. I hope they post the list of people that was there...........Bob

    Bob, I have always wanted one of those, too. But my wife doesn't share my admiration for those quirky sedans!

    All the other hold downs were attached to cars. Seriously, used to be someone would come and ask Chuck about (fill in the blank) and he would say "I don't have one". If some of us were there when the question was asked, someone would ask "Chuck, where is the radio, generator, carburetor, wheel cover, etc etc car. Chuck would say or point to that car. Several cars full of heads, blocks, crankshafts, camshafts, well you get the idea.

    So Bob, if you do want some hold downs, let someone know that will be there on the 4th. Our chapter has a tour for lunch later that day so I guess I will have to be there early to get my order in for what I need OPPS, what I want. What does need have to do with any of this

    That was my Grandson Ryan. We just pulled in.
    We wanted to do a couple more days sightseeing but Ryan has an appointment to see a Navy recruiter at 3 this afternoon.

    Go Navy, USS Yorktown CVS-10 1959-1962 enjoyed every bit of it but was glad when I got out, but something all young men should make part of their life, if so I think the world would be a better place today.

    We just got home as after Chuck's, we drove to Albuquerque to visit Sonja's Mom and as we are wintering on the very west central side of Arizona, we would never be closer. I-40 heading West to Flagstaff was full of wrecks so pretty slow going due to snow and ill equipped individuals. I'll post some more pics asap. It was a treat to meet Bob P and Ken as well as many others who visit this forum. I concur, Chuck's family is fabulous which tells you what sort of person he was. RIP Chuck, I wished I had the pleasure to have met you. I'm sure your mold has been broken.
    Cheers, Bill & Sonja

    I just got in this evening; drove 3K miles. It was a pleasure meeting you at the event, Bill & Sonja!

    Note pic of John removing some of the hundreds of nice parts which Chuck had hung from the ceiling joists! That is an NOS early '53 tri-star wheelcover in foreground.

    more pix

    Here are more pictures from Chuck's taken on Sat & Sunday.
    I got a good truck & trailer load there & visited John on Monday afternoon to get a few more items to fill in the cracks.
    I barely got out of there with enough $$ for the fuel to get home, but had a great time.
    Good job, John-it was a fun, well-managed event with no disappointments & worth the time & expense to attend! I only regret that there was no time to visit with all of the folks who came!
    Some of these nice items can be delivered to York.

    On the way out, I bought a rough '58 Packard parts car in Fredericksburg which I dropped at the Studebaker peach farm near Luckenbach, TX.
    That is owner, Russ Studebaker, with the Packard. I delivered a pair of R ser truck doors to him & stayed overnight there before heading west to AZ.
    I bought a rough '64 GT at Chuck's that was stuffed with fans; doors & trunk lid were not perfect but worth saving as were p/s parts, brake drums, rear end, etc. Chuck had used many of his yard cars for storage containers for the many parts he had removed from his cars. 2 cars were stuffed with air cleaners & 2 were full of radios, etc. As may be seen, my trailer was well loaded with hoods, doors, fenders, running boards & boxes stuffed w/ small parts. It did not seem that many dealers were buying much for inventory.

    At one time with over 300 cars in Vail, Chuck had more Studebaker inventory than most Studebaker dealers carried when they were selling new cars. I can remember seeing years ago, all 4 1958 Packard models, as well as several 1957 Clippers. I had somewhere a picture of Chuck and Ruth a picture taken at our banquet in front of their Turquoise and white Clipper that was Chuck's daily town driver for years.

    If I can get out before February 4, I will see about inventory and post cars and numbers before February 4.

    Frank Wenzel and his tanker score.
    DSC_0265[1].jpgFor Chuck,
    As was mentioned by Barry, you had to look in ALL the trunks as that was Chuck's stash of various similar parts. EG: one car's trunk was FULL of fuel pumps, another's assorted chrome trim, Oil filter adaptors, steering wheels, carburetors, cylinder heads etc. You get the idea. Don't assume all that was there is a car-check the trunk. Flat deck loaded with driveshafts.DSC_0272[1].jpgDSC_0271[1].jpgDSC_0270[1].jpgDSC_0268[1].jpgDSC_0268[1].jpgDSC_0267[1].jpgDSC_0266[1].jpgSorry for the duplication-difficult for me to edit. Re the trunks/hoods etc. apparently in the summer they also provided housing for the rattlesnakes to heat soak. More to follow when time permits-It's beer thirty.

    If anybody wants to see a different view there seems to be a lot of activity on Studebaker lovers Facebook. Regarding this sale lots of pictures I understand unfortunately I don't do Facebook yet. I guess I'm stubborn. Thanks John

    Sonja & my return trip from Chuck's routed us through Albuquerque NM and back to central western part of Arizona. Found a few Studes along the way. This '32 was on a part of old Route 66 which went through the Petrified Forest.DSC_0280[1].jpgDSC_0281[1].jpgDSC_0282[1].jpgDSC_0283[1].jpgDSC_0284[1].jpgDSC_0285[1].jpgDSC_0286[1].jpg
