  • 25th annual Studebaker-Packard Cruise-in Rally, Tallmadge, OH (near Akron), Sat. Aug. 26

    ...11 a.m. to 5 p.m., but as always, folks will be there earlier.

    Typically we get 100 or more cars. Independents are welcome too.

    See the July Turning Wheels page 19 for hotel information, or ask here.

    The address is 1200 Southeast Avenue, Tallmadge, OH 44278, Exit 29 off I-76.

    Summit Racing is a large retail store which will be open during the meet too.

    It is immediately off I-76, maybe seven or eight miles east of Akron, OH--if even that.

    Questions, please post here or PM me.

    Thanks!

              Looking forward to it Bill. Had a day off yesterday and spent it reverse flushing the cooling system on the '54, and replacing all the hoses, which I haven't done for many years. That under-seat heater makes the hose changing a job where you have to pack a lunch before you start. When I was all done I felt like someone beat me all over with a ball peen hammer. I either need a lift or a floor pit if I'm going to keep doing this sort of work!

                Safe drive over, Dave! My brother-in-law Harley from Greenville is coming over, but sans Studebaker. You'll get to see my '66 finally!

                  Good to see you, Dave. I might add, I could detect no beating with a ball peen hammer on Saturday!

                        I tried to edit my posts but failed, so here are some comments on the above pictures from the show Saturday: First is Bill Pressler's "new" 66, a beauty. The black '64 Convert is the only one produced in South Bend in Black with a blue interior. It has a 3 spd on the column as well. Next is a nice '53 Red and white Commander next to my Blue '54. I like '57 sedans and this one was excellent. The '48 Champion was for sale and cute as a bug, with excellent patina! The '55 Willys was one of 288 Custom 2 door sedans made that year, and this is one of the 4 known to survive.

                        Next frame, the Packard contingent. About 10 or 12 Packards were there. The King Midgets made a strong showing. The Blue '64 had one for the Trekkies! The Hudson convert was close to perfect. The Ambulet picture would have been better if I had captured the large red light on top.

                        It was a beautiful day there. Upper 70s and low humidity. Great turnout too!

                          Thanks for posting those pics, Dave. I also liked that little Willys, a Toledo, OH product. Sure not often seen.

                            Glad to post some photos, Bill. I find posting pictures on here to be difficult, but I got it done. The only problem with the pictures was the photographer (me). I was using my cell phone camera and with the strong sunlight I couldn't tell what I was snapping half the time. I took a bunch more that just came out lousy, or not at all, so I'm glad I at least got the ones that I did.

                            Referring to your prior post, yes, I recovered from my repair soreness by Saturday, lol. I'm just grateful that I can still do some repair work on my own.

                            The Champion did okay on the trip. It is exactly 100 miles from my house to Summit. I held the speed to 60 to 65, and I only passed one truck on the trip, then he passed me again a short time later! Even with the OD the car only got about 21.5 mpg on the trip, but I'm just glad I got there and back in one piece.
