  • Stude Bob is divesting (scrapping); and I know he has 'stuff' folks need.

    I haven't seen Bob Kabchef post anything here; but perhaps he will.
    I just saw his post on Facebook.

        At least his local chapter was able to go through the parts and pick up what they considered useful. He is doing some forward thinking, and getting things thinned out now, so that when he does have to move it will be taken care of. That seems like a better way to handle it than to pass the problem on to his family at a later date.

          Yeah, it's better to sort it out now than have the family call a scrapper later.
          where's he located?

            I believe he is based out of California?

            For sure it is sad to hear, but unfortunately everything cannot be saved. I feel the market is getting tough for some of this stuff and given the volume he has to deal with, I'm not sure there is a better option especially if it has already been picked over.

              The Club went and picked up alot of sheet metal. Still have a bunch after a few years. Had to move it twice no takers on the stuff. We did a catalog brought it to a few Meets posted online. On our club website. I found a temporary site to store it told him a year its been there three years. The southern California group looked yesterday they didn't take much . So it will be going to the scrap yard too. San Joaquin Valley Chapter. Its hard when you don't have a place to keep it.

                Hey (S)-

                Why shame on him? You can't make people take stuff. It's not like he hoarded a bunch of parts and goodies and is scrapping it without giving people ample opportunity to pick up what they need for their cars. What else does he owe the Studebaker community?

                  Does anyone have his email address? He owes me some parts and he apparently doesn't read the forum any longer. I have tried to send him messages but never got a response.

                  Thanks

                    If anyone has Bob's email, please don't post it in this thread. Please PM the member asking. Thanks.

                        Can't say as I blame him too very much. My own collection has gotten to be a bit much as well. Pretty sure I don't have one percent the good stuff Bob does.

                          I called Bob yesterday as I know Bob from the past and have done a few dealings with him over the years,Most of you know that I have given up my parts business and gotten rid of most of the parts but a young friend helped me move out of the large shop I had and some things came home and are in my 2 story 5 car 2600sq. foot garage, I have given the garage to Anthony to work out of and store parts and he wants to take over and become a parts man. We will be making a plan with Bob and heading down to his place soon and picking up what might be the first load of parts, I will be talking with Bob again later today. Some of you members know Anthony as he has been with me to a few meets and very active and wants more action. He was in Tacoma, South Bend 2 years ago, Sacramento this past week end, AZ when we delivered a couple of loads to Russ of Studebaker parts .com he and I have worked together on picking up cars and trucks to be shipped out of the country, he is young, strong, smart, and knows cars and how they work and what it takes to keep them running. Anthony has already started his list of people that have hired him to work on their car or truck. Look for more to come from CandBstudebakers the name might change some but we hope the service won't.

                            That's good news Bob. It works for both of you, if you can help him clean things up, make the useable parts available at swap meets. Wishing Anthony Good Luck in keeping things going.
