    I had a couple days of adventure with Allen Anderson and his GT Hawk's hydrovac. I hope he finally made it home. He had to do a Wood brother's pit stop under one of the Fairground's open buildings, but did a great job getting a new one in and back operating. As usual, the dinners and discussions were the best part after each long day of Stude fever. I never heard if there was a Forum picture opportunity. Did that happen?

    Just kidding, he's a good egg...I did witness the Anderson luck first hand, though. It's the real thing, believe me. It even shows up at parts and hardware stores.
    Yes, Dave, Caroline and I were on an Adventure in South Bend. I was nice to see the pictures of the Car Show since I was running around with Dave looking for fittings to make the new Hydrovac work. I was lucky that I did not have to bleed the entire system but it took a while to bleed all the air out of the system. But the majority of my luck was having a good friend drive us around for dinner and drinks and then find the parts to get us back on the road and home again. My Power steering did not make it home either. and had to cut the belt 1/2 way home to save the pump.
    As for Caroline not making it up in the morning with me was more to do with Joe's Bar and those cheap gigantic martinis they serve, even the "Sofie cut" of Roast Beef could not save her.

    I restored the drive line and frame. Floyds Body Shop did the body and paint. Jim

    Being you're the one that restored it Jim, I'd expect nothing less.

    If you think the top side is nice, you shouls see the underside. It is just as nice. Been there. Jim

    Wendy, that looks like my kind of place. Only thing better would be thick bacon and fried potatoes cookin' in the kitchen in the morning!

    You should add "Studebaker National Museum and annual Studebaker Drivers' Club functions" to your site for things to do/see.
