This July 29 will be only three years since Bob Shaw initiated and became the first member of this Forum.

With so many friendships made and information exchanged here over those three years, it feels like a decade.

My thanks are extended to all those who have helped me (you know who you are), or perhaps you don't. Much of this help I have sucked in as a result of questions by others.
My thanks are extended to those who have sought to entertain. and sometimes succeeded.

My thanks are greatly extended to our webmaster Bob Shaw, who takes this all not too seriously, but seriously enough.

His first post: http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com/sdc_forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2

Do you suppose he expected 2400 members and 100,000 posts in three years?

Guido - I can't Imagine anyone not saying the same about you ;)

When I first logged onto this forum, I thought I knew my way around a Studebaker [|)]But it took only a few minutes just reading the threads to realize how little I really knew. I have learned far more in the past 2 years than I ever knew before. Thanks to all of you.

I have to add my congratulations and thanks to Bob Shaw too. Although I don't (yet) have a car I've learnt so much about the vehicles and the company behind them.

And also big thanks to a great bunch of guys and gals who make we overseas members welcome, it's just wonderful and I'm pleased to pass on information that I've learnt to new forum members.

I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it: This forum has worth because of YOU, the forum members. I'd like everyone to go look in a mirror, smile and give yourselves two big thumbs up!


Yes, I was the first to register on 7/29/04 but the first "real" member to register and post was "Studebaker44" on 9/23/04. That first member post was from Sharon Hall who posted Asa's obituary. Somehow it seems fitting that a sad end played a role in a new beginning.

As the SDC Board renewed me as Webmaster in South Bend, y'all now have to put up with me until 12/31/10.

Great anniversary![:p] Great forum - probably one of THE best as far as automobile sites go - and I'm talkin' about the whole SDC website, not just the forums.[^]

Since it's "pat Shaw on the back day", here's an appreciative whack from me, Bob. I enjoyed visiting with you last month. I only wish we could have had more time to talk. As seems to always be the case, there's never enough time in a week, to thoroughly visit with ALL the friends there are at one of these national meets. While this paragraph's drifting personal, it's intent is to convey to you that weren't able to be there that Bob Shaw comes across as a guy with real integrity and a sense of "fair and balanced" that main stream media don't even have a CLUE about.;)
I've not been alone in testing the limits of Bob's moderating envelope and I'm sure I've yet to probe every corner,[}:)] but so far I've not had quarrel with his judgement.
Bob could confirm, that of late, I've actually sent him posts I've composed (the ones where I KNOW I'm pushing the limits) - BEFORE - ever posting them. Each time he's assured me that he would indeed take action if I posted them. I guess I must have SOME feel for where the edges of that ethereal envelope are if it's come to me having Bob proofread them for me.[:I]

I'm the wordiest bugger here. No two ways about it. And from time to time, I think about when we FIRST got a computer in the house (the main purpose of which was to facilitate the wife's career as a teacher)and I would wade thru AOL's ads and folds to find the Studebaker bulletin board that I'd heard about. New posts were sporadic - sometimes being a week between new postings. I think the first person I interacted with online was BondoBilly.
Then I heard about Jim Brady's establishing a newsgroup devoted to Studebakers. This group was totally independant of SDC (as it still is today). It took me awhile to figure out how to access it as my ISP didn't carry newsgroup feeds and that forced me BACK to AOL (which I'd already left by then) to be able to interact with alt.auto.studebaker.. Much like this forum, the NG grew over time and had quite a gang of "Regulars" develop. It was a good place to learn about Studes - work out "deals" on stuff - or talk about just anything you felt like.
Finally tho, SDC's board saw the light about the possibilities of the internet's global reach and moved, officially, to have a web presence. Three years later - here we are!:D Too cool![8D]
While I'm (so far) the wordiest one here, I'm certainly not the most technically intelligent. We're lucky to have at least two of the Co-operator advisors (and others!) here that know way more than I do when it comes down to the nitty-gritty.
I get a boot outta helpin' out when I can. The pay's piss-poor as far as dollars go, but then bucks ain't everything.[^]
Some few of you have seen my "office".[V]To those folks I apologize. But when someone asks about a particular part or technical tidbit (as in Lark's recent trivia quest about crankshaft hole spacing![:o)]), I dive into the pertinent parts books/shop manuals/Turning Wheels index and try to provide an answer. I simply can't fathom being able to help like this back in the old stamp and envelope days.[xx(] Neither can I fathom establishing and maintaining a site like Mr. Shaw's done so far.
The members, the advisors, Mr. Shaw, SDC's (our's really) monies - all work in concert to make this forum what it is. I have every intention of being here to celebrate the 10th anniversary and the 20th. Here's hoping all the rest of you do the same!:D

Well, I think ole StudeBob hit the nail on the head. Don't really think there's too much I could add to that. ;)[^] Very well put, Biggsie.

I will say that this forum has really made Studebakering a lot more interesting, and South Bend '07 wouldn't have been half the fun without it. This forum has allowed me to 'hang out' with other Stude guys, learn more than I ever wanted to know, and thanks to everyone for putting up with this teenaged Stude nut for the past 2 years or so that I've been around.;) It's great to grow up in a world where I can not only drive these cool old classic Studes, but talk about them anytime I want. :D
Kudos to Mr. Shaw, and everyone here who participates. :)

Well, I think ole StudeBob hit the nail on the head. Don't really think there's too much I could add to that. ;)[^] Very well put, Biggsie.

I will say that this forum has really made Studebakering a lot more interesting, and South Bend '07 wouldn't have been half the fun without it. This forum has allowed me to 'hang out' with other Stude guys, learn more than I ever wanted to know, and thanks to everyone for putting up with this teenaged Stude nut for the past 2 years or so that I've been around.;) It's great to grow up in a world where I can not only drive these cool old classic Studes, but talk about them anytime I want. :D
Kudos to Mr. Shaw, and everyone here who participates. :)

I may be one of the wordiest, but I have learned FAR MORE from this forum that I'll ever be able to give back. A great bunch of guys and gals here with a wealth of knowledge for sure. Thanks for all the help and the comradeship. Thanks Bob Shaw for running a class operation [^].

I'm not one of the wordy ones:) but I have been enlightened by this forum from a mechanical standpoint and the members I have gotten to know through this medium are priceless.I too thank SDC for having the insight to put this website together, we are all better off for it. One could never accomplish this much through print or mail or phone calls as is being accomplished here with our combined knowledge.
