  • Studebaker Truck Farmers - New Top Scribe

    The torch passes today to John Batka. John is an enthusiastic Stude Truck lover who volunteered to maintain and grow the ranks of STF members.

    I will be transmitting STF Materials to John today, and I'm sure he will introduce himself to you shortly.

    Thanks to all who responded. I know many of you will give John an assist in leading projects and sponsorships, organizing dinners and other events, as you have already done for me.

    Thanks for all your work to get the STF up and running well. It was a pleasure meeting you in '07 in South Bend at the Stude Museum.
    Best to you.

            Thanks Guys

            And thanks again Bob.

            I will be posting an updated list shortly, there are already 3 new members. I'll also be starting plans for Cedar Rapids dinner and group photo. I am honored to be a part of this great group of guys, i briefly met Chuck in South Bend 07, but I doubt he remembers (we weren't formerly introduces) and he had a big crowd. Any way I hope he makes it to C.R. so I can meet him & thank him for starting the club.

            Also i have a new addition I'm going to pick up tommarrow, I'll post pix soon It's a real Dandy!
