  • Myer's Tech Meet 2009

    I wanted to personally thank the kind hospitality of those in attendance at the Myer's Tech Meet today. Jon, Betty, Michael, Linda, Michelle & the many employees who showed up and helped with the mini-tours of the grounds, garages & parts buildings, and constant Studebaker questions are to be commended for their efforts. The first really hot, clear spring day made for a good crowd, and for me, a rain free 6 hours of total drive time.
    Michael offered a free inspection of anyone's car who asked and waited in line. That often included small fixes for some of them, including mine. Much appreciated, Mike!

    Current restorations were abundant and keeping the staff busy.

    Thanks for finding a better (correct) part for my accelerator linkage, Michael. [^]

    And if you liked hunting for parts, this was the place to be.

    The parts boss (in black) poised like the ok corral standoff.. holding court outside. Jon was quite busy totaling up parts requests and answering many questions inside throughout most of the day.

    If you get a chance in the future, you must make it to this annual event. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again, Myer clan. [^][8D]

    What a treasure trove of parts.

      Sounds and looks like a great time! Wish I could've made it. Glad to hear, Dave, that you made it there and back without incident.

        You're welcome, guys. Great day and a pleasant drive. Good test for the heat.
        John, there were some folks there from PA and your chapter, as well as one guy from upper Michigan. That fellow loaded up on parts. I thought my drive was long!

          I wish I could of been there! But it was good to see my car up on the hydraulic lift. Michael has pulled the engine and stripped the engine compartment so far! It's probably a good thing I live in Oklahoma vs. Ohio because I would spend too much time at Myer's Studebaker and then Michael would never get done.

            I came up from Pittsburgh. Great place, great weather, great time, and very nice people. If you get a chance to attend this event in the future do so. Also they had a great 50 50 drawing.

              Thanks for the post, Dave; nice pictures.

              I had a chance to go over with Jim Turner and Ed Reynolds, but had finally secured a time that morning with Studebaker's West Coast PR man to tidy up the details of that up-coming interview for Turning Wheels. (We had done the interview through e-mail, but were to meet to secure some period photos from his time, make sure he approved of my final version, and take some new photos of "today" to appear in the article.)

              After playing phone tag for 10 days and nailing down an appointment, I wasn't going to postpone it for anything. And it was a good meeting; this will be a great article (I hope and think). BP
              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Billmdonn- "I came up from Pittsburgh."
                Always great to meet forum members, Bill! Hope you guys found a few needed parts.

                "...And it was a good meeting; this will be a great article (I hope and think). BP"
                Sounds like a rare interview, Bob. Can't wait. It was great to spend time with Ed and Jim yesterday. Two very talented guys.
                Btw, BP, make sure that article has thoroughly checked photo captions!
