We had a little car rally in Hazlehurst Friday and Saturday. There was maybe 20-30 cars, and the most represented make I think was Studebaker.[8D]
Here's a few pics...

We cruised around town Friday night. I was driving my truck, but I've been having trouble with it lately. It has trash or rust or something clogging up the gas lines. [V] So, it was parked Friday night, and I got the '64 sliding roof Wagonaire out and drove it Saturday on the Poker Run and did the 'show' thing with it. Man, for a 6 cylinder car, that Wagonaire sure does drive good...

The view at Sonic.

No sweat Jeff.:) No, we won't be in Charleston. And actually, I took that pic myself when getting a ride from the car wash in Pat's GT Hawk. [8D] We were close to 110 MPH when I took that pic, trying to dry the car off... :D[:0][:o)]

Matthew; hey are those front turn signal lenses on the Scotsman just ordinary truck clearance light lenses? I know someone who has a very nice restored street-rod Scotty. He has painted it Orange! But it is a apricot looking shade because of the Pearl in it, very pretty. Anyway he needs lenses for the rare turn signal option, and they are rarer than hens teeth! That's why I wondered if you had to modify the fender to install those after market ones. Thanks, Rich.

Those were on the truck before I got it. I think the first uncle of mine that owned it put those on there. They are aftermarket ones from Western Auto I think.
I do have one correct NOS lens, and it's the same as those used on 57-58 sedans, as I'm sure you're well aware of. Maybe I lucked up, but I got this one off eBay not long ago for just a few bucks. [8D]

Oh, an Orange Scotsman PU you say? Can't be too many of those around. :D[8D]

Well, actually I think my uncle's car was light blue originally. (Maui Blue maybe?) When we got it, it was free for the taking and needed complete restoration. It took my uncle 11 years to redo that one, and 8 days after he got it back from the interior shop, someone pulled out in front of him and smashed up the front end. Two more years in a body shop and it was back on the road again. And what was so bad, was that the guy driving the car that hit him said that he didn't see him... [V]

Matthew,
Those are some very good photos there! You have a talent that could sometimes be used on TW covers.

Thanks! And from the world reknown editor of Turning Wheels no less! [:I] If there is one you like, I have the pics in a much larger size. If you want me to, drop me an email and I'll send you a few that I thought turned out pretty nice. Then I can always mail them to you on a CD. ;)

Thanks a lot.:) Not trying to brag on my family's cars, but I do have to say, it did turn out to be a perdy one! [8D]
