    Well gang, I had the pleasure of meeting with benny_64 and his pal AJ today. Two great guys as far as I could tell.
    Both of them are Marine Aviation specialists out of Mirimar NAS in San Diego. And they drove up to my place so that Benny could secure an engine to build up for his '64 Studee.
    They showed up around 11 or so and after showing them a bit of the "collection" here, we got down to considering prospects for Benny to work with. In the end, I decided to give Benny a bit more than he'd anticipated (Remember the old Stude proverb: "Always give more than you promise.")and he left here with an engine that had already had a fair amount of work done to it including being bored out .080 over. That works out to about 301 or thereabouts. Between that and a spare bellhousing to effect alignment with and a better drivers door for his 64 and they were good to go.
    I told them that they couldn't leave until they'd taken a bunch of tomatoes that we'd picked earlier and I didn't have to twist their arm too hard over that. So in little more than an hour, they were loaded and back on the road for SoCal.

    Not to sound TOO damned "geezerish" but Benny's the sort we need to encourage to carry the torch for Studebaker in the decades to come. I hope he continues to get infected with "the disease". He could be the next Ted Harbit and that wouldn't be a bad thing![^]

    Benny, I enjoyed meetin' you and AJ. Don't hesitate to hit this forum up for answers when you need them. I don't pretend to have them all but there's lots of folks here to draw info from, so don't be bashful.

    Here's Biggs, the motor & Benny......
