      We had a gal in our chapter who restored her father's '49 Champion sedan with basically no help. As soon as it was finished, she put it in a car show, won a couple awards - and then quit the club... Real head scratcher.

        What a nice story. Kind of brings a tear to my eye.

          Well yes, I'm pretty impressed myself, sadly way to few women understand what they're capable of if they just give it a try!

            Nox, that picture brings two passions together that my wife and I share. We are also into steampunk. One of our first dates was going to a ren faire dressed in our steampunk finery. Alas, a Studebaker was not in my possession at that time, but we corrected that shortly thereafter.

              I met a lady a few days ago in Mansfield who was very knowledgeable about Studes, including the mechanicals, and had recently purchased a 55 Speedster.

                When I didn't have enough welding stuff I just used my friends welder but without gas & Josephine's custom face became kinda steampunky because all the "boiled welding fleas", & now I think I'll leave it like this for a while.
                (I thought I would put a picture here but that's not at all as easy as it used to be...)

                    I kinda like the "boiled welding fleas". Never heard that term before. Lol.

                      Nah, I reckon I made it up while writing... We (swedes) call the little jumping droplets that comes while welding "welding fleas" as they mostly manage to jump into places & spaces on you where they aint wanted at all. You guys probably have a more properly fitting word for it..?
                      Mighty happy to see "edit" again!
