        I took my Lark out for a ride today. Tomorrow, weather permitting, The Long Island Studebaker Club will host our annual Studebaker Reunion Sunday and Orphan Car Show in Massapequa, NY at Marjorie Post Park. We decided that we would have the show rain or shine. Let's hope there's more shine.

          And I'm a bit frustrated because I still don't have my title or anything yet.

          I'll just take the ol' Champ to the end of my 80ft driveway and back and enjoy that insane granny gear that thing has.

          1957 Silver Hawk "Josie"- picking up the pieces after an unreliable body man let it rot for 11 years from an almost driver to a basket case
          1951 Land Cruiser "Bunnie Ketcher" only 47M miles!
          1951 Commander Starlight "Dale"- basket case
          1947 Champion "Sally"- basket case
          1941 Commander Land Cruiser "Ursula"- basket case

            Took my 62 GT out in the rain to visit with fellow club memberEd Ellis and see his beautiful 53 Starliner.
            I'd rather be driving my Studebaker!

                We drove 250 miles up and back the east side of Lake Couer 'd Alene to visit my inlaws at a vacation rental. Both blocks of Harrison were lined with collector cars from a cruise in or something but we never saw another Studebaker. 90 degrees and sunny so it was warm but a beautiful drive. Our new Avanti is beginning to feel dependable.

                  Too bad I didn't remind myself and didn't see anything on the forum about it coming up. I would have activated my insurance to drive mine for the weekend.

                    Uh, it's on the main Forum page. It has it's own sub-Forum. It's there all year...

                      As Dave said earlier we made it to two shows today under the threat of rain with Dave's 55 Commander and our 62 GT. Only two Studes in sight, as usual! My first IDYSD as a Stude owner.

                        Thanks to all who participated. Unfortunately, I was unable to join my North Star Chapter for its cruise but I was able to meet up with nearby chapter member Vern Anderson for a bite to eat at the historic Grant House here in Rush City. Both my 60 Hawk and Vern's nice 64 Daytona survivor drew some friendly attention. I was wearing my IDYSD shirt and our waitress excitedly told us that her husband has a 50 Stude he's working on. I gave her some info to pass along and will stop by there tomorrow with a couple issues of Turning Wheels.

                          Haha! Well, gosh, I probably noticed it a few months ago and then ignored it because September 12 was SO far in the future!

                            today was the first time I took my 63 standard R-1 4 speed out for a run on IDYSD, my friend Phil came by to get a bell housing for is 56 sky hawk, he said he drove his last year but not this year so we got in the 63 and drove it to my straight road by the golf course and ran it through the gears a couple of times about 85 in 3rd and still pulling, now that is sure a nice feeling and the perfect day for the golfers to see a Studebaker getting it on and more than likely saying ( them damn kids driving that fast) but I guess at 74 we are still kids at heart.

                              I drove the 62GT over to the pistol range at Fort Knox, and stayed a couple of hours. It is about a 15 mile round trip. Of course I was asked the same type questions and heard the type comments as I have for decades, but hardly even think twice about them anymore. Never thought about it being IDYSD; just another day.

                                We went to dinner, taking our Lark, with our son and two granddaughters after helping him with projects. We got a few comments from folks in the parking lot.
