  • The cutest thing

    So Kathy and I decided to take “Hazel”— Kathy’s ‘57 Silver Hawk, to the beach last weekend. Had a great time touring around SW Washington State, away from the big city craziness going on right now. Peaceful and quiet. Might have to move to a small town someday.
    Anyway, coming home through Aberdeen, we saw a local kid’s slow-pitch team having a car-wash fundraiser. So we stopped and gave the kids an American-car history lesson. They loved it! And so did the coaches. It was very cute to watch a group of excited youngsters soaping up Hazel and enjoying the sunny day. Awesome.Click image for larger version

      A precious moment...submit this photo to the appropriate Turning Wheels person. I've done something similar but not recent. On my '62 GT, I learned the hard way not to get too hurried washing the front fenders. A lapse of attention and slamming your hands into the top fender park lights, or ornaments on a Hawk can be quite painful!

      As to your desire for Peace & Quiet...I had to google Renton. Now I understand. I had it for about 40 years, 'till city escapees discovered our peace & quiet...disappearing rapidly.

        Kenny, thank you for taking the time to get this photo and sharing it with us. The idea of getting out of the house and going for a day trip in our Studebaker sounds like a wonderful idea. Jo Anne and I have not been to the Oregon coast for a while. Maybe it is time while the weather is so nice. Maybe we will find a car wash fund raiser as well. B-T-W, your Hawk looks great. I love the green. And Aberdeen is a very nice town. We've been through there many times on our way up to Lake Quinault.

          when driving either of my cars; 64 Avanti R2 or 64 R1 Super Hawk, I'll often stop and make the donation. I don't let them wash as they often use DAWN dish soap and frequently dropped washing rags. Nonetheless, they are happy to see the car and more excited for the non washed donation.

            That is excellent. I have used this type of car wash, but never on a good car, for the reasons that you mentioned.
            People do not wear masks there?

              So cool! My wife and I have been to Aberdeen many times on our way to Westport. Beautiful car! The kids will remember it for many years.
              Studebaker! If you're lucky enough to own one, you're lucky enough!!!
