    Thanks everyone. Stella's got a long way to go, but she's at least headed in the right direction![8D]

    Does sound like you need a carb rebuild. Accelerator pump has probably dried up to nuthin'.

    I knew a guy that had a 55 Prez. State sedan named Ms. Estella. Close enough.

    Heh, I used to call my 54 Commander Coupe Stella, I can't remember why,I guess she just looked like a Stella,whatever to F#$k that means.
    Congrats on your cruise in,keep tinkering with your Stella,and she will eventually inspire you to travel furthur away from home,to go where no Stella has ever gone before.

    Made it to my first cruise-in!

    There's a monthly cruise-in not far from my house. My goal was to make it there yesterday... and with advice and help from you guys... I did.

    Scared me to death too. That's the furthest I've driven her since getting her last September!

    Between re-wiring, seatbelts, etc. I've been working like a mad man to get Stella back together. Don't get me wrong, I showed up without the back seat in, no door panels, and my rusty, old bumpers, but she WAS there. And I got a good number of folks to come up and either look at her or ask me questions. Funny thing is I stayed right by her side all night to make sure she wasn't going to roll back into the fully restored, museum quality non-Stude behind her![:0] I think she was the only Studebaker there.

    And I still need to find a good tune-up guy because she wanted to hiss and die when accelerating from a stop sign or red light.

    Anyway, just thought I'd update you guys. I may not be working at the world's fastest pace, but I AM proud of what I've done and where she is. Thanks.
