        Hey Bob as long as you keep going in a southwesterly direction you should find this place ok,<G> 76 degrees today and will stay that way for the immediate future. Denny will be in Yuma next weekend for the Midnight at The Oasis show, but I will be here. Saturday we will be participating in an open car show in Tempe.( other side of the valley from Surprise) There will be large contingent of Studebakers present from the Grand Canyon Chapter. Show runs from 9am until 1pm and draws around 300 cars. Address, in case you can make it is Arizona Community Church, 9325 Rural Road. Tempe. Nothing planned for Sunday.

            It will be almost 80 when you arrive Bob. Just use your GPS and you'll get to the show. Pavillions show is on Saturday too all day. 101 & Indian bend at the McDonalds.

              You should have called! I'm about 20 miles north of Indy, 6 miles off US 31, and was home almost all day.

                  Well we don't have much time while on the road yet, at least till we get to New Mexico .
                  We made it to Shroud OK today , 70 degrees here already ...just wonderful when you've been in 20 degrees for the past few months !
                  We stopped today in Springfield where the International is going to be.....went to the Bass Pro store ! WOW is all I can say , we'll be back in there when we come back in June for sure .
                  Saw a Studebaker along the way today , along route 44 between St Louis and Springfield at a place called " Bob Gasoline Alley" was going 70 , couldn't tell if it was a 59 or a 60 but it was green .
                  Hope to get into New Mexico by tomorrow then get on some route 66 for awhile.

                              Yes , we stayed there last night.
                              Just got in at Albuquerque, another nice sunny and warm day. Saw a few Studebakers today, looked to be a coral or light pink 53 or 54 on a open car hauler with a full load of old cars heading east going through Texas....anyone on here having a car like that shipped east?
                              Also saw a few along 40 about 30 miles east of here along 40 , a dumptruck , a yellow and green speedster and another black CK. Also stopped off a a car museum in Santa Rosa , no Studes but there was some real nice cars in there.
