  • July 4th--Drive your Studebaker

    July 4th is tomorrow. Please do what I do every fourth of July---I drive my Studebaker and only my Studebaker on this day. To stores, to friends, to the gas station(g), I leave all my other cars at home!!!!

    What better way to celebrate our Independence than by driving an independent auto that was part of the backbone of our Industrial Might....a long time ago in a galaxy far away!!!!

    Happy Birthday AMERICA!!!!!!

              Drove Pete around town today with old glory fastened to the antenna stalk. Had several folks honk and wave. One elderly guy asked me what year my Dodge truck was.[B)]

                Drove my Hawk to a small car display in the next town, figuring I would be the only Stude. There were probably 50 cars on display from NW Montana, Northern Idaho and SE BC. and believe it or not there were 3 Studebakers, a 63 GT a 46 pickup and my 61 Hawk. I was very impressed.

                    Got mine out today for our local festivities. Perfect day for a convertible ride. Didn't make a parade, but it was right under the flag pole for the pledge at noon. Happy Fourth, everyone.

                      Wish I'd remembered to take my camera last night. I drove Pete into town to watch the town-sponsored fireworks display.

                      Heh - I could hear comments as I poked along streets lined with residents and friends, sitting in lawn chairs and anticipating the show. "Daddy! Daddy! Look at that cool truck!" "Look kids! A patriotic truck!" "Hey! Lookit that Studebaker!"
                      I finally found a parking spot about two blocks from where the stadium is. Had a great view of the sky tho. As the fireworks flashed and thundered against the inky sky, reflections of the bursts splashed across the white hood of the truck. Woulda made a great shot, had I had a camera. Maybe next year.[:I]

                      I came home afterwards and watched the doings on the mall in Washington DC. My wife watched it as well - only she was THERE, in DC.[:X]

                        My wife and I went down with my parent's in their 59' Lark (pictured) to a local 4th of July car show held at the park in the small community of Malin, Oregon. I was surpirsed to see three Studebakers: a 1951 Starlight Hotrod, a 1956 Power Hawk Custom, and a 1956 President 4-dr (pictured). I wasn't able to get the other two as (go figure) my batteries went dead but it was sure nice to see some representation at such a small car show.

                        This upcomming weekend is our car show in Klamath Falls and I hope to see a few there too!

                          Close but no cigar for me and my Lark...drove Betty to cruises on June 30 (Van Wagners Beach) and July 2 (Mapleview), but not on the 1st or 4th! Intended to go to a Canada Day cruise in Caledonia ON on the First...but the Lark wouldn't start. (Went to view the cars anyway, driving my modern-world Vibe wagon. No Studes there during the hour or so I stayed around.) Came home, for the heck of it stuck the Stude key in the ignition...and she fired up instantly! Simply had to laugh out loud. Electrical trouble struck again after M'view the next day though, and Betty's in the shop again. Already posted a snap of her with two other Studes at M'view on the 2nd, in a different thread...here's a shot of her at Van Wagner's on the lake last Monday evening before stuff started going amiss again.




                          And here's one of my patriotic/brand-loyal deck roof!
