        Thanks Dave ~~ With your help here; by clicking on your link I was able to get through to the video rather than to a page that says "No dice."

                Blackhawks on WGN today

                What a nice showing today at the home of Bozo. Lotsa Studes - including a 32 Dictator!

                Ms Hall could not have been a more energetic and fun interviewer (and yes gentlemen, she is as pretty in person as she is on the TV)

                This was our third year. WGN continues to be gracious hosts to the Blackhawks.

                Looking forward to bigger and better next year.

                  Great presentation, ANY Studebaker coverage nowadays is a good thing!

                  Looks like we may need to send Brian back to Studebaker History 101!

                          Curious... the WGN link showed and stated that IDYSD was on Sunday, the 15th - not Saturday, the 14th.

                          not that i wouldn't approve of a "IDYS-Weekend"!!!

                            The 1953 as Mike's red one, was NOT the first new design after World War II, 1947 was.

                            It is actually a pretty big deal that Studebaker was the only Major Mfg. that was able to come out with a completely NEW Car in '47, not a very slightly facelifted 1941 Car. And to top that, it was the first or one of the first New Cars with integrated Front Fenders!

                            Steve's Hawk sure looks to me like a 1961, not a 1960.

                            I would probably would not have corrected the nice Lady when she called the Gold Avanti "TAN", either. Good call.

                              Brian, nice job organizing the WGN event today. Black Hawk SDC had a nice representation of Studes there.
