    Gord, What impressed me most of the COE was the deck goes on forever! It must have been over 20 feet. And I agree shipping back to Canada(Alberta or British Columbia) for either of us would be pretty hefty.

    You know you can always make an offer on the Cab over. You load it up with another car on the back and a ton of parts to take back with you and possibly a trailer with the car on top of it to. You can make your money back on shipping cost. One drawback it mite take you three or four weeks to get the Canada. I don't believe that truck is any speed demon. Just slow and easy as it goes . Please pass the word on like to see all this great stuff find a home in it original configuration. Thanks John Kroulik

    He's another perspective, although not much different, from someone who was there for the January sale. I'm not as far away as some parts of Canada, but NH is still a good hike from Tucson, but I will admit that I'm blessed with frequent flyer miles. First let me say that as others have said, the family and friends of Chuck did an exceptional job of running the sale. With hundreds of people milling around and John primarily responsible for pricing it was a tall order. But they pulled it off very well and they all deserve special thanks from the Studebaker hobby for saving this stuff; obviously not the easiest option. I've been in many situations where existing, supposedly organized, businesses have not done as well under more favorable circumstances.

    In January I passed by a few shiny items in the shop early on, figured I go back in a few minutes and make an armload, but when I did the items were gone, and probably at very reasonable prices. But really to me that was not the major attraction of the sale, shiny items is what everyone has saved and if you wait long enough most anything will turn up somewhere. I'm into big trucks and I have never seen anything that approaches the gold mine of items there, even the selloff of Rey Clerici's stuff in CA pales in comparison. At the Naugle sale so far I have bought four large trucks (note to any local SDC members who might see this, don't tell my wife, she will learn in good time on a need to know basis). Two of the trucks are strictly for parts. For all those eyeing the green and white forest service dump trucks, those have been mine for a month or so now, one hopefully will go to a friend in TX at my cost or less just to get them used and bring a new big truck person into the Studebaker club fold. I'll be going back out in March and hope to get more dismantling of the parts trucks done and maybe do some triage on the forest service trucks. I would rather be there doing that then vacationing on the beach somewhere after the long NH winter, no contest. I am a bit concerned about the snakes and killer bees that I'm told will emerge as the weather get warmer, but hopefully I can adapt. As they say in the military, it's all about keeping up your situational awareness.

    Carry around a super soaker with a very strong solution of Dawn dish soap in water. If you come across killer Bees, I'm not sure what to say because no matter what you do you're screwed. Once one of them gets after you the whole hive will follow momentarily. However, a supersoaker with soap solution will help with wasps, hornets, et al. Yes, keeping aware of your surroundings is critically important anymore in the south-west.

    Glad to hear those nice old trucks have a good home.

    Oh yeah, and good luck with the wife! If you two have been together for a while, it would seem she's the understanding type anyway though.

    Yes we have been married for 38+ years now and we left our wedding in our 64 Cruiser so she had fair warning of what was to come. Still large influxes of parts and trucks that weight 4 tons or so empty may cause a raised eyebrow. She worries about disposing of the stuff if/when I drop, but I keep telling her you need a critical mass (like Chuck had in spades) to attract buyers.

    After some major work on the 1990 4 door I got last month at the sale today it goes in for smog test if passes then it will hit the road and I am looking forward to driving it . the car had been sitting for many years indoors so no problem with interior or exterior but gas tank was a real problem, It needed to be removed and flushed out and good thing it is stainless steel or it would have rotted away, the inside and all the parts in side the pump, sender, float, wires and cage that hold things together were all rotted and most were in the bottom of the tank. finding the right parts were a little hard and a lot of running around but did come up with something that we could make work. Since the gas tank is custom built the sender system needed to be correct but who knows what it came from, we found the closest we could and altered it to do the job, and then the plastic feed lines from tank to engine are another subject and brittle with special fittings and Chevy just says NLA ( no longer available) I did find a shop to make a new section that broke. These cars should be the one in the Johnny Cash song. ( one piece at a time) even with the problems I am looking forward to cruising in it. and do love the car.

    ​Yeah, Chuck and Ron Hackenburger. I think the two of them were in an unofficial competition to gather the most Studebakers. Of course, Ron cheated by branching out to other makes.

    March 18 and 19 just a few days away. Gates open 6 am. I'm sure Texas rebel will be first in line. After driving all the way across the country from York meet. Next sale is April 8 and 9. After that will see we're the family is on the hole deal. So great deal to be had and good chance to get out of that storm back east. Bring a hat and sunscreen. Because it's nice and sunny here now.

    Just thought I would post a pic-DSC07064 (2).jpg of Mike, John and myself along with a very nice parts body for a future project. We are looking forward to this weekend (March 18&19). I would have to say for those of you who have not been to Chuck's this is one of the few places that you can get a trunk filled with goodies. It's like going to a candy store for those of us who like sweets, you can't just get one. So anyone who is thinking about a trip to Tucson should make plans and do it. I for one can't believe how many cars and trucks including loose parts are still available out at Chuck's. I hope they all find a new home.

    This ol' Texan ain't making it this time. This is the first I heard that it was going to be 2 days & I just got home from York last night. Maybe in April. Best wishes to all that make it- it will be worth the trip.
    I was very fortunate to exit PA by way of Pittsburgh on Sunday p.m. ahead of the blizzard which closed the highways for 2 days there earlier in the week.
    The only snow I saw on the entire trip was all day Friday during the meet. I never encountered any bad driving conditions.

    Oh Texas rebel. Hard miles indeed. In your own words post 148. And my words 147 clearly states a two day sale. Your antics will be missed this time. See you in April for the next two day sale. Get some sleep. Lol John kroulik

    Hey Chuck,
    Thanks for the water yesterday. It was much needed.
    [Actually it was Chucks daughter who provided it but it was Chucks idea.]
    The number of cars and parts and just "stuff" still available is almost staggering.
    And the prices ! I heard a number of people commenting that they couldn't go wrong buying.

    Had a great sale. Lots of buyers getting great deals on truck loads of stuff. Just wasn't the same with out Texas rebel there. Lots more to go. April 8 from 6am tell 4pm or so and 9 tell 12 noon. After this sale it's in the air if any more sales will be held. So this could be it. Thanks John

    I went through 4 bottles of Gatorade and had to stop at noon. The parts were too hot to touch! I got about 90% of what I was looking for. The people were very friendly, and I was in amazement at all of the different cars and trucks. John was very helpful, and very fair with his pricing. I'm glad I went.IMG_0121.jpgIMG_0117.jpgIMG_0112.jpg
