  • Transmission seminar

    This is a good idea. Not only will people gain mechanical knowledge, they will almost certainly have an enjoyable time. Good clubs do this sort of thing.
    Medical reasons keep me from South Bend this year but I would really like to see some sort of writeup on this event for Turning Wheels. Sure we publish photos of winning cars but I also like to see the "people" side of the meet.
    Would any of you be willing to write up a short "experience" at this seminar? It does not need much technical content since the experience is what I want to focus on. Maybe a photo or two.
    Don't everyone yell at once.

    Art, I'm going to be at the seminar, and can take human interest notes. I agree that spontaneous events like this will add interest to the meet and encourage others to do similar events.

        Art, YOU'RE not gonna be there??? Bummer! Hope whatever it is that afflicts you goes away.[V]

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Go for it Mr. Biggs!

            Yes, I wanted to be there but I just got back from a week in the hospital so I'm supposed to rest (whatever in heck that means).

            And others can add to it as well. Once I see what's submitted we will put something together and be able to show how SDC really works.

                I'm planning to fully video-record the job- and the event; also tons of digital pics; and I can write a little... so I'm just one who'll be willing to contribute something for your consideration[^]

                I think this'll be a useful- AND fun- event... heck, maybe it'll turn into a tradition- how to rebuild some item in front of the whole world[8D] Maybe next year I could cut the rust out of a Stude fender and weld in a patch panel...

                Guess we'll see if we survive this one first

                        I have written a few articles for Avanti Magazine, and some of my posts
                        can be considered books, but I wont be at South Bend. I have tried to
                        post as many tech articles as I can on the forum, to light the fire on
                        others to do the same. The more info thats out there, the easier it
                        is to get repairs done, and it can also help to take the fear away. I
                        also feel its a good way people can tell if they are getting ripped off.

                        Good luck on this venture.

                            A good idea, but not a first. For example, at one SDC International Convention, Jim Pepper held a sort of ongoing seminar on the complete rebuild of a Studebaker V-8.
