  • From MN to South Bend on May 6 in my Studebaker

    I plan on leaving around 7am on Thursday morning (May 6th) from Milaca, Minnesota for South Bend in my 1963 Hawk. If anybody would like to convoy with me, you are welcome to. I'm getting excited, anxious and a little nervous about the journey, hope to see a bunch of you in Indiana.


    Love birds...Red Hawks in mating season.

        No, I don't think so. Is this in referrence to a previous posting about him asking me to bring a case of Grain Belt beer with?

        Prager, if your serious about this request, let me know and I will see if I can purchase a case locally.

          Convoying is a great tradition within SDC.
          Even Studebakers are not immune from occasional mechanical difficulties. We used to carry CB radios to keep in touch with each other. Procure the cell phone numbers of those you convoy with.
          CB radios, while antiquated, are still more instantaneous than cell phones.

                  I would like to go, and will try to be there, but unfortunately my Studebaker still needs the gas tank and fuel line purge to remove the issue I am having with the fuel system.

                      I didnt know that anyone preferred Grain Belt over other beers. Perhaps most Minnesotans take it for granted being that it's brewed here.

                        Do they still brew that crap???? I figured it went out when the clean water act came in, you know something like Hamms, Schmidt, and a few others...been there done that. back in 73 my brother asked me to bring him a few cases of Coors since back then you could not get it east of the Rockies, so since I was driving my 60 Studebaker pick up with a slide in camper I put 37 cases in the closet for him, like I said been there do that, have a good trip Brent, and enjoy South Bend...Bob

                            Bob: I still have a full 2 gallon Hamms Alunimum Cage tank. It was in 1957 when I was discharged from the army when it was bought. It was left over from my comming home party. I haul it around sometimes in my studebaker Hillbily Wagon just for show.

                              Bob: I used to Boot Leg Coors to California when I was hauling swinging beef from Denver. I could make more money doing that than trucking. LOL The truth come out! That was in the 1970's also.
