A friend was given this Champ Pickup. It came from Manteca it hadn't been started since 1986. Well we have been busy so it has just sat there in the Sign Yard. Well today was declared a Studebaker Work day. David put points in the pickup while Bobby got the engine ready to pull out of the Golden hawk. I was busy taking stuff off of the 1957 Siverhawk little stuff that was time consuming. Defroster motor, heater valve, wiring for power windows, front bumper. Well you get the idea. Anyhow it was a very productive day. Enjoy the sweet sounds. Bruce was a happy camper.

Nothing like getting one started after a long sit and easing it around with no brakes. Feeling an old car move again under its own power is so cool.

Oh that was old signs to protect the glass from the rock throwers. Should have taken it off before the video but it was hot out there.

Yeesh, ROCK THROWERS[?] I knew that Fresno was rough, but... Yeesh![:0][B)]

Hah!:D I knew that was a Champ showing through the Hawk's window![^] I like the colour. What year is it? My dial-up is really bad since the fire, can't do u-tube, any still pics?
