  • Studebakers Touring The White Mountains

    Hello, Checking to see who else is going to the Show Low AZ tour starting this weekend May 13 thru May 18. I am traveling with Five other Studes from mostly east Texas area. I am leaving Montgomery Tx to Gatesville Tx on Friday. Gatesville to Roswell NM on Saturday & then to Show Low on Sunday. 990 miles one way. At least 4 or 5 GT Hawks & my Avanti. Looking for a great tour.

    Hey Bob, I am going to meet you all Saturday morning wherever you intersect IH20 and then it’s on to Roswell and Show Low. I hope that Avanti can keep up with those GT Hawks. Lol
    PS. Did you ever find a cover for your car.

      Yes Mike,
      I have a new cover. I am bringing it with me. What did your RPM'S drop down to at 70 with the new 700R overdrive? All the bugs worked out?.

          2050 rpms at 70mph 700r4 with 331 rear end. Onnie pretty much had all the bugs worked out by the time I picked it up from him.

            I just came back from the White Mountains today after opening up the cabin in Alpine. I wished I had
            remembered that there was a tour. I would have gone up this coming weekend instead. Are you taking U.S. 60 or U.S. 180 to get there?

              It’s my understanding that we will be taking US 60 from IH 25.

                Ok, thanks. I thought you guys might take I-10 and come through Las Cruces. Enjoy the tour . It is beautiful country there.

                  No we are coming out I-20, then up to US-380 all the way to I-25 where we will travel a short distance north to US-60 and then West to Show Low.
                  Thanks, we are looking forward to it.

                    Somebody please take pictures, I am seriously thinking of retiring to that area.

                      Beautiful weather June-October. Unpredictable winter weather rest of year. The area is exploding with retirees.
