  • Nice to meet you

    I'm Matthew's Mom - It's taken a good week to recover from from our family bondage, I mean bonding, trip to South Bend. I wanted to say "thanks" to the many, many people I met who are in the forum with Matthew. Some very wonderful gentlemen who made the boy's trip the highlight of his few years of life. I'm not sure who had a better time, Matthew (mbstude) or his grandad (rockinhawk), but it's been pointed out that at one time, when Matthew, myself and my dad were all together in the front seat of the orange truck making laps around the proving grounds, that several pictures did not make it due to the glare of my teeth - I was grinning! I kept thinking how cool, 3 generations in one Stude, sharing the moment....then I got elbowed on both sides as my companions were trying to drive, wave and get the "best" shot. Thanks to all of you who made this adventure a great one.

        It was [u]My Pleasure</u> meeting you and Sabrina and the whole family. I have always enjoyed Matthew's posts, but I found him even more interesting in person. He is a real asset to the future of our club.

            I don't attend the meets so much to see the cars, I've seen enough Studebaker's over the years. The cars are a part of it, so is the flea market, but the main reason for me is seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

                But what about poor Sabrina, who had to tag along not knowing anyone and did not get the rock star reception afforded her older brother? I only hope that she is an active member of the Barbi forum and young Matthew has to tag along to their convention!!! [8][}]

                By the way, I did make it a point to call out to her as Dick Steinkamp and I were doing the parade on Thursday.

                    That was you! She was so excited that she was recognized! She didn't even mind being called "Matthew's sister" - she went by a few names - aliases you know, just in case someone might know her. She's outgrown the barbie phase, but has her own summer camp at the beach that we are NOT allowed to go on with her. She was a pretty good sport and likes the Studes more that she'll admit - or likes the boys they attract anyway. I figure if we keep her around car shows enough we'll maybe merge with another family with a bigger stock pile than us! Then, we'll continue to build our Studebaker empire! One highlight was a lady who overheard us talking and said, "I take it by your accent you're from the South?" Sabrina looked at me and said, "mama, we have an an ack-sint?" She had no clue! She thought everybody in South Bend did!

                        I thought it was neat that I got to meet the whole extended Burnette family on Thursday at Matt's truck, like JDP said, for me it is as much or more about the people than the cars.

                            I can do no better than to echo what 41Frank just said. Matthew was pretty much as I (we) had surmized from his time on the forum here. It would've been a big shock if the rest of the family wasn't just as nice!

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