  • Young and Old with Studebaker's !!!

    Dylan (Silverhawk),

    I would like to invite you to meet an old friend if you come to the show in Ferndale.
    His name is Oliver Yanko and he is a 94 years old.
    Since you and Oliver are only 78 years apart and both like Studebaker's so much, I would like to get a picture of you both together with your cars!
    Oliver keeps his 63 Avanti at his daughters house, but will have his newer 2001 Avanti at the show.
    Hopefully you will have your wagon there, so we can snap a shot of you both in front of the cars.[8D]

    About Olivers Avanti:

    His 63 Avanti was one of the 1st 10 made and his 2001 was the 1st of four with T tops made.
    It was sent to the Los Angeles Auto Show for display before delivery to Bellingham, WA.

    It should be a fun Stude Meet!

    My cars keep telling me-
    Grow Old with me,
    the Best is yet to be!

    Wow, I'd love to meet him if I can go, its up in the air a little bit, but things are looking good. Kinda reminds me of my great granpa, me and him were pretty close, and he was a die hard stude guy, up until they put chevy engines in the '65-66's. He died at 100 years old in 2005, right before christmas.

          Rich, I sent you a email about that. But, it sounds like I'll be able to make it, with my wagon. By the sound of it, it will be a family activity, and we are taking 2 vehicals, my wagon, and our suburban( but not to enter it,lol.). So, its a extremely good chance I will be there, granting nothing else happens this week.

              Dylan,

              Hope you make it to the show.

              When you are 94 years old, you can look back and remember what it was like to drive a real petrol powered automobile and talk to someone who watched real horse power turn to horseless carriages when he was your age.
              We can only hope to have as much enjoyment from driving Studebaker's as Oliver and hope future generations will appreciate them as much as you do!

              The park is next to a river (curently full of Salmon) and there will be lots of fresh corn on the cob and baked goods to go with hot dogs

                  What does someone who is 94 years old and someone who just has his drivers permit (no license yet) have in common?

                  A love for Studebaker's (and good food) can be enjoyed by young and old!
                  Oliver and Dylan got a chance to kick tires and share that interest by being member of the Studebaker Drivers Club and having some fun in Bellingham.
                  Dylan has a car that's very old for his age and Oliver has a car that is very new for being 94 years old. Both are shown sitting in front of their cars.
                  Dylan is also a military history buff and found more common interest when Oliver mentioned being in the 1st wave of infantry men to hit the beaches of Normandy in WWII.
                  Meeting great people is always a great time!

                    Very nice picture James, thank you for posting it, Stephanie for taking it and Dylan and Oliver for being there!

                    It is very good Dylan, that you got to talk with Oliver, he has much knowledge to share, and has a very sharp active mind! [^]

                        I think that we should call for this picture to be a front cover for a future (and soon) Turning Wheels!

                          Thanks for posting that Mr.Bell, I appreciate it. I got that one saved, along with one other I got. Mr.Yanco was a amazing person, and I hope to talk to him again soon.

                              Maybe the youngest driver, but there is younger owner's, so I don't feel totally alone, between them and Matt,lol.
