  • Checking on a possible member?

    I was on a nice motorcycle ride on sunday afternoon. I was heading up Pacific Coast Hyway {1} down in Luecadia or Solana beach. I was heading north when out of the corner of my eye I spy a mid to late 50s Transtar parked on the southbound side of PCH. It was a 2 tone color with the darker color being an orange and the lighter main body color being a beige ish orange ish color. It was pretty clean looking, but I only caught it in a quick glance.

    I could not stop and go back since I was riding with a group, yet another reason I prefer to ride alone. The truck was being used as an advertising street sign because it had a small store sign strapped on the hood or roof.

    I was just curious if it was a members truck or if anyone knew anything about it.

      Clark is one of the guys I was thinking may know about it. It is just a curiousity for me. Seemed like it may be a fixture in the area.

        If it's the place I'm thinking of, on 101 in Leucadia, it belongs to the owner of an antique store. He also has a '51 Champion 4-door that gets parked outside the shop. None of them are pristine, but it's always good to see them there! I don't know if he's a member or not - he's never been in the shop when I've gone in.

          I thought the sign said something about antiques on it. I am sure that is it. Nice to see a Stude out and about. It must run to be able to pull ot in and out of the street.
