    Took my 59 studie Scotsman pickup survivor out for some ribs and a beer at Spankey's in Pompano Beach Florida.

ID:	1700334Well IDYSD couldn't have turned out much better. Terrific weather, a great 3 hour drive to get to our destination, the Quilchena Hotel we stayed at (107 years old) was superb. Great food and drinks and the perfect setting for showing off a Studebaker. When was the last time you were in a bar with BULLET HOLES in it? Whilst in transit, we stopped at a rest stop where several Harley riders were also resting. Their bikes were very nice and they were all very enamored with our Avanti.
    We got special permission from the hotel for a great photo op which follows. We hope everyone else's IDYSD was as enjoyable as ours.
    Cheers,
    Bill

    How many chapter members does it take to set up a Feather Banner? This was at the Antique Car Museum of Iowa, in Coralville.

    We also checked out a 1930 Studebaker wrecker at the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum in Walcott, Iowa. They have a one-of-a-kind Studebaker neon sign on the wall that was presented to Wenberg Studebaker Sales in Upper Michigan, before many of us were born.

    Visiting South Bend from Phoenix and tried to join you. Got E-mail from VP inviting us to picnic on Sunday. Questioned that since Drive Your Studebaker Day was Saturday. VP re-confirmed that it was Sunday. Got to the park on Sunday and the Park Rangers told us it HAD been Saturday. Extremely disappointed, we gave the food to the rangers and got a private tour of the mansion. Expressed this to the VP and his cell phone spell check was blamed. How hard is it to spell Saturday or to proof read a message being sent? We drive the Studebaker almost every day so it did get driven on Saturday, but not to your event.

    After the New Lenox lunch, I drove the 76 to Morris IL Monthly Cruise Night (700 cars, 7 Studes). Sunday I joined members of the Wisconsin Regional Chapter, Rock River Valley and Blackhawk chapters at the Beckman Mill for Heritage Sunday in Beloit WI. 18 Studes and 2 Packards were at the Mill along with other vintage brand X's for a really nice day. My Drive Your Studebaker Weekend added up to 400 miles.

    OK...I know this link is in another thread, but I thought it would be appropriate to post it here as well. This is a you-tube video of lots of folks attending the annual Tri-State Meet in Maggie Valley, N.C. doing our little parade "thang" up the hill with a police escort. Notice how many modern "cigar cars," SUV's, and motorcycles loved us enough to get in on the parade.

    After a rainy morning, the sun finally came back.
    I took the car to the Montsec monument: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montsec,_Meuse
    I really enjoyed this afternoon.

    Cliff's '55 President Deluxe sedan is the July centerfold in the Madd Doodler's 2016 calendar; an example of one of the best driving, designed and assembled models to exit the Studebaker factory.

    Rained all day yesterday. Was planning to take the '64 out for a run as I was scheduled to swap cars from one garage to another. I finally did manage the switch today. My '37 Olds was rained on but my '64 stayed dry. Short drive but enjoyable. If you buy Steve Grant"s Studebaker calendar you can see a picture of my '55 taken between rain showers at last years IDYSD. Seems I caught the rain both years.
