    No prob, Bob. Got to Matt's a little late due to a late start this AM. Drove a little over 700 miles in the rental truck today. I plan on the same amount of miles, more or less tomorrow. Very nice finally meeting Matt. Nice young man and that 51 Champion in his garage is just unbelievable!

    We just loaded up Bob's transmission in the back of Kevin's rental truck and I pointed him towards the interstate. The Studebaker Express rides again!

    Hey Bob, my company sent me down here at their expense since they have to send me home from the ship anyway. Price was about the same so no problem there. Should be hearing from the deputy today. My stepson and I are driving a smaller rental truck home starting tomorrow morning. I brought him down to help paint my old house that I have for sale. We got that done these past four days. Anyway if you still want that tranny, its no trouble to swing by Matthew;s place for you. No charge.

    Arrg! I feel your pain. I had to give up my Stude 35 years ago and I just built a replacement for it. Now I stand guard and keep it close to me. Good luck with the police.

    Thanks! I won't have to stop at the scales as this is a private move on my part. My stepson and I are going to do this together so the driving won't be too strenuous either. Hopefully too, I'll figure out how to post some pictures of the move. Like I said in my previous post, if anyone has stuff they need to move more or less along the route, I'd be glad to help.

    Good luck, seadog. I traveled that route many times in a 13 ton truck with one of those little coffin sleepers on the back of the cab. Being that I was an "expedited freight" hauler...I had to keep a log book and visit all open scales. If you are required to do the same...roll through the scales with an alert look, neat unclutterd dash, clean truck, and you should get the green light every time.

    I hope all goes well for you.

    The trip is on!

    I willfinally be headed to Louisiana to rescue my '63 Champ that I wrecked about five years ago. I have rented a 24 FT box truck and trailer to bring her up to Rome, NY. I plan on taking the shortest route which is up I-81. If I can help anyone who lives more or less on the route by moving Stude stuff, let me know and I'll make youa deal. Wish me luck!
Working...
