            Thanks very much Sebastian for taking good Pics and Posting them here!

            Could we please get a Full Engine Compartment view Pic of the Whistler?

            I REALLY, Really wanted to be there this year with the Whistler coming all the way from Arizona and seeing all the really cool effort the George Family have put into this Great "Studebaker" Presentation would be amazing!

            I did not hear any mention that the Studebaker National Museum would be bringing our "no longer with us" Friend Jack Merrels's, '64 R1 Pursuit Marshall Police Car (from Edmonds Washington) to the show: Rest in Peace Jack.
            But I definitely do see that amazing and rare Car there.

              • Say good night....


                The Show has wrapped up and the center is closing out..



                It looks absolutely amazing all painted up ready to go racing. What a journey from a pile of neglected metal to top notch contender.

                You did a great job John and Mike! The effort to get it right, even down to the exact stickers on the window...

                  • Thus truly was an exceptional event, and this was very special.
                    The camaraderie was spectacular.
                    Was proud to have been included.
                    Thank you so much, John!

                    • As Jeff said, it truly was a special time and to meet all the folks that brought "The Whistler" back from death row to the showpiece it is. John, Mike and the entire group that were there are just the nicest bunch of people you could ever hope to meet. Many, many thanks for including me in the "sticker stick" event, I had major goose bumps as I put that STP sticker on. Keep up the fabulous work on the car and thanks so much for all the pic's.

                      • Thankfully, Chuck carved out a place where lucky Studebaker's went to retire..



                        Not to unusual, a car would find a "Lucky" home.


                        And you could always find the part you were missing.. Even the exact part you were missing..


                        Interesting you still may see occasional vision of Sherman T


                        Or hear the air horns of Erl..


                        I think Chuck would have had enjoyed this show with a good choice of fried chicken and a few Pepsi.

                        Thanks again Chuck for the memories, the cars and the good times.

                              • All went well today made it to Tulsa down for the night it was great putting a face to a name at the show some I will remember and some I will not gust not good with names I’m glad you all had fun being part of the Whistler and especially Bob I believe it’s been a long road coming for him the circle has been completed he was like a kid in a candy store I was glad to make everybody’s day. Jeff thanks for the videos and it was great meeting you wish I had more time to talk really enjoy your work maybe some of your work will go on the Whistler Someday. Oh a crazy thing I saw two people that I knew from Phoenix there at the show they were amazed with my car and quite happy to stumble upon it and on another note I got a really nice complement from a Mopar man with a hemi Cuda down the way he said my car was spectacular over the top and then went to say I should know I own that hemi cuda down the way that was powerful for me. Thanks John
