  • Happy New Year with a few Studes in review!

    Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!
    We have been blessed with many things to be grateful for during the last year. Having a wonderful family and good friends, while being able to live each day and make the best of it, makes a wonderful recipe and gift to be thankful for.
    Rather than only dwelling on what we’ve been unable to do, use the humbling opportunity to conquer achieving the resolutions and projects that never seem to happen during normal busy years.
    Invest your time to earn later returns, and appreciate what you have.
    Enjoy every day you are blessed with and Make the Best of it.

    We acquired 7 Vehicles during 2021.
    We only sold 2 and quickly gave away 1, so we are over our limit of 100 and have a New Years Resolution for a Diet!
    Linked is how we were able to give one away before bringing it home and was rescued from the demolition land fill.
    A few pictures and video of others.

    We also enjoyed a Studebaker related boat.
    A highlight of the year was when my wonderful sister and her husband took us out Salmon fishing!

        Thanks Bill, I look forward getting the boarder back to normal for seeing our Canadian friends and more events.

        One of the linked 1948 Champion article pictures, showing what the sign in the windshield said was amazing, but opposite of what I thought it would be...
        Some people will never part with their car.

        Did you get your 57 Packard Wagon finished?
        Hope your keeping well and staying warm.

          Tony is also interested in the Linked picture of the Avanti that was rescued. It will be available to part or restore and Tony wants to get it on the road.

        Happy New Year James & Steph.
        Thanks for your kind comments but things have not gone well over the last two years. With the USA/Canada border being pretty much closed we have been unable to get to Arizona to deal with our cars and stuff there. I had someone most interested in my '48 Starlight Coupe (TW Cover car Feb?)but that fell through. It's pretty tough dealing with things 2000 miles away.
        Regarding my '57 Clipper Wagon, it is stored with a pal in Arizona. I have the fresh numbers matching engine on a stand but no way to install it remotely. It is such a shame to get it this far in 10 years with no ability to bring it to fruition. Oh well sometimes life throws you a curve ball.
        We were fortunate to not be affected by all the fires and later flooding in BC. Were you guys OK?
        Happy New Year
