Here's my trailer queen with Parts King Dave Spilski out in front of SASCO after my first round of parts procurement, Tuesday morning. I was the first in the door...yea!! Anybody else have a trailer picture? ;)

I don't know, Dave, from what we understand, you put 400+ miles on your "trailer queen" just while at the meet. Maybe you've already disqualified yourself from your own subject title...;) Unfortunately, John didn't get a ride down the block in it. Ah well, maybe next time...

But I do borrow one from time to time...is that OK or do I need to to clear that with the politically correct board of SDC codgers....? I feel left out not being able to associate with the trailer queen guys...<snif..snif...> I promise to do better in future...

Normally, seeing my cars on a trailer would mean they've been stolen!!! In two of the following cases a move was to blame~
the other was a 'dead' car bought at an auction. Chances are you've seen these pics before, but here they are again.

Most of Ruby's engine was in her back seat when I bought her~

John, I really like the Route 66 shot. [^][8D] Wish I had given you a ride, too. I froze mbstude and Jeff H in the Iowa wind, so you could have been next!

Technically mines not on a "trailer" nor is it a "queen" yet, but this is how I move my cars around when there "in progress":) I can't wait till it's back together, so I can take it out in the snow and slide corners again like I did in high school![}:)] Twin Traction has a lot of advantages in the winter!;)

Love the thread, and the photo's, I experienced the same thing in the Harley club, some die hards looked down on you if you didn't ride. Well it just made more sense to trailer, the bike, extra clothes, a wife with 3 bags and a curling iron.:D[B)] along with my things of cource [^].

You won't here a comment either way from me, just get it there, and enjoy. [8D]

I'd post a pic of my vehicle with the HD but that would just disrupt the threads flow.

Paul,

I haven't owned a grey '63 GT. Would you mean the Bermuda Brown '64 RHD GT or maybe the white '63 GT I had 30 years ago or so? Both had poor enough paint (or were dirty enough) to look kind of gray. The only other possibility would be the gray '60 Hawk I had back in '86. All were sold within a year or so except the '64 which I kept for four or five years.

Great to meet you two, Nathan. Glad you parked nearby otherwise I wouldn't have seen you and made the connection. Car looked great and glad you drove up to the Meet. [8D] I don't own a Uhaul franchise, or have neighbors who would appreciate a trailer at my place either. I still needed it for this trip.

Great shots everyone. Alan, I like Grace's initial pix. I don't think I've seen one that color.

It was great meeting you as well!:D I too am glad that I parked next to you, mainly because I am not the type to go out of my way to introduce myself to someone (unless they are driving by in a bullet nose, sorry I didn't get to talk longer, Matt) I have that "shyness" problem sometimes.

I understand the need to trailer your car for such a distance...especially now that I heard you won a first place? Great! (even though your tailight gasket was out too far[B)];))

You don't have to pretend like my car looked that good ;) she needs alot of TLC at this point. I'm planning on tearing into the suspension and replacing all of the bushings and brakes and all that fun stuff. But I'll tell ya, it was a blast to be there!!:D:D

Nathan, I didn't pretend anything, your car looked cool. I like the two tone treatment. You both looked good in it when you pulled up and seemed very happy to be there! I wanted to meet more Forum members from that part of the country and wished more had sought me out. I've met so many at the last few meets, it's been exceptionally nice to put a face to the words written here. I'm not shy, so if I see a Forum connection it's good to make new friends if they're interested. Every event from the drags to the poker run were a good place for that. Good memories.

My '63 Cruiser was on a trailer once after I bought it from a guy who dug it out of a sink hole in his back yard.
The '33 Rockne has been trailered twice; the first time when I bought it after sitting unmoved for thirty-one years; the second time to Lancaster '08 because I couldn't drive two cars at once.

I never thought of taking pictures.[V]

Great thread idea...manufacturing some fun out of what was a rather unpleasant occurrence to begin with...once again this bunch rocks.

Not quite a trailer, this...but here's my Lark "Betty" on a glorious afternoon last summer, right after the distributor rotor fractured on Hwy#54 south of Hamilton...being tugged forward into place on a late-model International tiltbed. No rotor = no distributor = no spark = no functioning engine...[:p]

...And in late summer '07, about to be hauled home from Everett, Ontario, where I found and acquired the Lark; that's me in front...

The Lark has not yet quit on me this season; I'm not the superstitious type, so I'm not really worried about jinxing her now! BTW had the Lark at the Hamilton Chapter monthly meeting this eve in Glanbrook; needed to drop by work briefly en route home, to save time just went there in the Lark, so I can now say I've driven the Stude to work...sorta.

Nathan, I didn't pretend anything, your car looked cool. I like the two tone treatment. You both looked good in it when you pulled up and seemed very happy to be there! I wanted to meet more Forum members from that part of the country and wished more had sought me out. I've met so many at the last few meets, it's been exceptionally nice to put a face to the words written here. I'm not shy, so if I see a Forum connection it's good to make new friends if they're interested. Every event from the drags to the poker run were a good place for that. Good memories.

Dear SDC Club Members:
At the awards dinner on Friday, in Cedar Rapids, some remarks were made about the custom and modified classes that were less than complimentary. I want to assure the membership that derogatory or offensive remarks by a SDC representative about a particular group of SDC members or the manner in which they choose to celebrate Studebakers are not sanctioned by the Board and will not be tolerated. SDC is a fellowship of Studebaker enthusiasts who, while a diverse group, all share a love of Studebakers. Whether we drive our cars or trailer them is immaterial. Whether we like them stock or prefer them modified is also immaterial. What is important is that we respect each other and maintain the fellowship of the club.
For those who took offense at the statements of the Chief Judge at the awards dinner on Friday, I apologize. Those sentiments are not those of the SDC Board nor are they mine. In order to allow all of us to move forward and, hopefully, put this event to rest, I have removed Linda Sinclair from the position of Chief Judge. Accordingly, I am actively seeking a replacement for the position of Chief Judge. This is a very difficult position in that judging, by its nature, tends to heighten our emotions and we donít always agree with someone elseís assessment of our possessions. However, unless and until we decide as a club to no longer have our cars judged, we need someone to step forward and take on this task. If you feel you would like to tackle this job please contact me. Alternatively, if you can suggest someone who would do a good job, please let me know.

Mimi Halgren
President, SDC

Mimi,
I was at the awards banquet and also listened to your speech that night. I was very impressed in your directness and long time passion for our marque. Your law background was apparent in your words and the length of it to move along the evening was also noted. You will be an asset to the presidency of this club. I am saddened that it had to come to this. I thought Linda was trying to handle her first evening at an International awards ceremony with levity. I doubt her intention was to alienate herself from the crowd. She did, however. While it did appear that her comments came across as having a discriminative attitude clearly missing the point that many of us use trailers for many reasons in all classes, not just divisions 8 & 9, I doubt she meant it the way it came out. Sadly, that attitude also exists right here within this membership so it isn't an uncommon discrimination. Of course the difference is that she is the Chief Judge and that cannot be tolerated in a public address at a SDC ceremony. It's too bad her tenure was so short, but I applaud your decision with the backing of the board. I wish her well, I hope she doesn't leave our club because of this. We all are very different in our thoughts of how things should work in the SDC and often do not agree. That should also be recognized and accepted.
I started this thread to have fun with the Studebaker on a trailer theme. Some understood that. It was not meant as a jab at Linda, or a platform to agree or disagree with her. She didn't make up the term trailer queen, nor did she do a bad job directing the judging the day of the concours, she just made a few poor decisions at an awards presentation. I wish her well and I hope the position of Chief Judge is filled soon. It clearly is thankless.

I would not own a Studebaker if I didn't own a trailer, the 64 super hawk is all loaded right now ready for a 120 mile trip to Roseville cars tomorrow, going early so we can drop the hawk and go get a 56 power hawk parts car then back to the hawk and over to the show, then about 9:00pm down the road 120 miles with power hawk and leave the 64 with Clayton but I guess I will need to take the keys with me so he doesn't go cruising in it, will have some pictures tomorrow of both, also Clayton missed out on the runs this year on the salt flats track..Bob

I would not own a Studebaker if I didn't own a trailer, right now the 64 super hawk sits on the trailer ready to go on a 120 mile ride to Roseville for a little night car show, but first I will drive to Roseville and unload the hawk and then head to Grass Valley to pick up a 56 power hawk parts car then back to Roseville and get cleaned up for the show, Clayton lives in Roseville and like to go and have a car there so this trip it is the 64, after the show back to Clayton's house to get the truck and trailer and drive the 120 miles back to Castro Valley leaving the 64 with Clayton but I will need to take the keys with so he doesn't go cruising in it he does that some times and him only 14, bad boy! he is such a little guy he can hardly see over the wheel. will take some pictures today and post them later , I hope to see more member from Sacramento there....Bob

Gee thats too bad about Linda ....I know her comments p@*%^d a few people off but that awards night was probably the best run one we have had in years......and I give her the credit for that . This year you knew who won what award and even had the pictures of their cars to prove it . That sure hasn't happened for the previous awrd banquets . Before it seemed they couldn't get us out of the hall fast enough . Just my opinion ....sorry Linda had to take the fall ....good luck to the next Chief Judge .

I have great picture of my baby "Lucky" being towed home when we first bought her. She's a 1960 Lark Convertible, tan with a black top, Lionel Stone had a Stude truck the same color and a trailer and he and my dad towed Lucky home, I spent the whole rest of the day cleaning her up so dad could get her running. Unfortunately, that picture was taken back in 1980 and not available digitally. If I can find it and have my husband scan it in for me (I'm not particularly computer savvy yet) I will get it posted. Great picture that brings back lots of memories. . .

Dave - That would be my baby, or one of them, I should say. Right now she is up on jack stands in the pole barn out back and my husband is working on her as I type - I should probably be out there helping. We took her out of the giant ziploc car baggie in June and took all 4 tires and wheels off plus the spare to go get new tires, easier to take the rims to the shop. While the tires were off, George decided it needed new brakes and bearings, so that's where she sits. I might have her out to a car show yet this summer. Now that the kids are in backless booster seats, if I put rear seatbelts in, we should be able to let them ride in Lucky. Have you tried those big car bags for yours during the winter? I think we paid about $500 each for them, but haven't had any critters nesting in either the Lark or the Avanti since. I can get the info on them from George and maybe find the pictures and post them in a new thread if anyone is interested. We tried the Irish Spring soap - the critters chewed on it, the dryer sheets - they used them for nesting material, and about everything else we could think of. Living in the country with corn and soy bean fields all around, the critters are plentiful and looking for a warm place to spend the winter, the car bags are the only thing we've found that works. I'll try and get the info and pictures posted in the next couple of days.

Dave and/or Michelle

We have a yellow '60 Lark convertible that I restored for my wife for our 30th anniversary. It originally had a brown interior but at some time in the past redone in non-stock material. I have gotten samples of seat covers from Phantom Interiors in both the brown and tan colors. We are leaning towards the tan color but have been unable to find pictures of a car with the tan interior until seeing Dave's picture of Michelle's Lark. Would it be possible for either of you to either post more pictures or email me picts?

Here's a picture of the car:

I don't have a scanner anymore, but in '96 or '97 I took a bunch of pictures of Michelle's Lark in a dark garage for reference in rebuilding my black Lark. It was almost all original, maybe ALL original. The pictures are old and shot with a cheapie camera, but here are a couple until she can show nice digital ones.

Ed has so many wild animals and exotic birds on his property, cats are the least of his problems on that farm. Cats laugh at dryer sheets there. They eat fat mice all day long. :D

Thanks for the pictures. Those helped a lot. Do you remember the color of the steering column and the dash pad? They look either dark brown or black. Want to get the right color. If you don't recall maybe Michelle will chime in.

We've thought about the red but don't know if we're ready for that.

Thanks again,

There were a couple types of tan paint on those '60 Larks, I think. Without looking at her production order, I'm not sure of the correct Studebaker color. The dash pad was dark brown, not black. Column was the same color as the dash, tan.

The official color of the interior is Luggage Tan. Many years ago, when SASCO was still Newman & Altman, my dad bought a roll of NOS fabric for my car - it sure is nice to have a dad who is connected ;) - the whole interior has been re-upholstered over the years using that NOS fabric and we had an excellent interior guy in California who made it look just like the original. The dash pads are dark brown along with the steering column, the steering wheel is two-tone, tan and dark brown. The Luggage tan has a bit of an orange tint to it. I am the 2nd owner of the car and have tried to keep it as original as possible, the steering wheel and column have not been redone. I will see if I can dig up the production order to check for sure, but I don't think it showed the color name of the dash pads.

Rob - if you give me your e-mail, I will take some good interior shots with the digital in the next couple of days and send them to you. It is a gray, rainy day today and we don't have lights up in the pole barn yet, so I will wait for a sunny day, which hopefully will be tomorrow.

If anyone is interested in the car bags, I have found the pictures and will be posting them and the info in a new thread, that is if I can figure out how to add pictures.

Mimi, thanks for your part in doing what had to be done with the chief judge thing, as for statement from 2r5 that this might have been the best one in years I don't agree, and saying that gives no respect to Carl Thom's the past chief for the past 5 years, pictures were great but they were done by some one else not her, most years the pictures have been good only in Lancaster did they have a real problem, the car awards are the last think handed out on a long night and her doing more than she should have just made it longer, Bob I respect you for your opinion and hope every one else does also, and this is just mine...Bob

Thanks for clearing that up, Michelle. I wasn't accurate at all! [B)] I was sure Michael told me that car was all original when I shot it back then. The other gray/tan color panel on the back of the front seats always had me scratching my head. What year was the Luggage Tan available? I am not near my books right now. Sorry about the column color, too. I see now it's clearly the darker brown. There were a couple color combos with similar names..Arabian Brown and Sahara Tan, for instance. Do you have your original production order? We were trying to sort that out for someone the other day for the steering wheels.

Dave - the panel on the back of the front seats is original, I forgot about that part, we re-used it because if couldn't be easily duplicated, so it's very discolored. I'll have to check downstairs for the production order, I think I know where it is, but not positive. Michael may have told you it was original, he may have forgotten that his friend Louie did the interior before we left California, but it was with NOS material. I'm not sure what years the Luggage tan was available other than 1960, since my is a 60, I honestly don't pay much attention to the other years, sorry. I'll check on the P.O. and let you know tomorrow.

I'm thinking your P.O. will have your car painted code P6015 Sandalwood Beige, unless it was a late '60 built P6024 Sudan Beige. That would also be TNV-5 for your tan vinyl interior. I couldn't find anything that called it Luggage Tan in 1960. I have a spare convertible top vinyl well that exact color in your interior, but the grain looks like a later Lark-type vinyl. Did it come with that name tagged on it? It's a really nice tan color, not as washed out as the earlier tans. Your interior paint codes should be # 1112 Arabian Brown and #1113 Natural Tan. Your interior trimmer was very good. It appears very stock. I took about 100 pictures of it, for my trimmer back then when you first moved back. [^]

Sorry about not getting back to you sooner. Just married off our first son this past week and things have been hectic.

If you could take some pictures of the interior of your car that would be great. My email is wyostude@gmail.com.

If you happen to find your production order and can list the interior paint codes that would be very helpful.

I'm thinking that the way your car is will be how we want to go. Photos of an actual car would really hep a lot.

We REALLY appreciate your help!!
