    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        BTW, my friend, StudeKen (Ken Pyle) - he and his wife have driven Studes for daily drivers for most of the time I've known them. Ken currently drives Edgar, his 61 station wagon. Cheryl drives a '60 Hawk.
        Another guy here locally drives a '64 Lark every day - MANY miles round trip. He's slowly building a '60 Lark wagon to replace the '64.[^]

                I get the Avanti out just a couple of times a week since my collector car insurance won't let me drive it to work.
                Some evingings my wife and I head around the "block" looking at the deer and for moose (haven't seen one yet). Friday's we take the scenic route to the local pizza place. Saturday's it's the occasional car show and one Sunday a month it takes me to the local SDC meeting.

                    want, as long as it agrees.

                        I work at home so drive my 2R10 when I need to. Have a motorcycle also that I drive. Last week I hauled a yard of soil and later a yard of mulch in my truck. Drive it probably 3 or 4 times a week.

                            Nope, Matt, I'm happy to say- you're not the only one driving NOTHING but Studes! I have been since I bought Sweet Pea.
                            I just got back (Sunday) from a trip up to Naval Air Station Fallon, Nv. I stayed for three weeks~ had people begging for rides, and loved listening to them talk about what a nice car she is...
                            On the way home Sweet Pea turned her odometer past 266,000 miles! She had 69K on her when I bought her in December 1991, and when you do the math- don't forget that in that time:

                            1) I've made three 6 month deployments + about 6 more months worth of 'training' cruises
                            2) I was sent to Diego Garcia for a year = she was mostly parked!!!
                            3) I have also been driving 'Baby' (my '57 Commander) quite a bit.

                            These cars were made to drive, and this is a DRIVER's Club don't you know! One of the girls I work with actually said it today in fact- "Old cars were built to last" -no kidding, that's what she said! [:0] [8D]

                            Here's a pic of two of my rides in front of my squadron's hanger-

                                Iused to drive a Stude everyday in the summer,but now only have one thats in pieces. Ive managed to put another 10k on the Hog this summer so far,usually end up with 15k or so. Don't know if Ill be doing 600 mile days much anymore though. Diane and I went around the eastern end of the province last Saturday(about 600 miles),and Sunday I felt like someone had slowly and methodically beat be all over with a baseball bat. The road was rough,and so's turning 50(G)
