  • How the Forum works so well & thanks to Paul Windish

    Last month there was a posting about a aussie guy trying to buy a 63 R2 car on ebay and was having difficulty's with the deal. He contacted Paul Windish (a Forum Member) to see if he could help with the purchase of the car because he lived near the area where the car was for sale but it didn't eventuate.
    After reading the post of the 63 R2 car I contacted Paul and he pasted on Rob's contact details.
    Obviously Rob wanted a supercharged car so I intern put Rob in contact with a buddy of mine who was considering selling his 64 R2 Daytona Convertible ( one of six made) .
    The two guys got together today (they live 700 miles apart) and a deal was struck and Rob drove the 64 Daytona home.
    So this would not have happened if not for the Forum's great network and Paul trying to help out a guy half way around the world to for fill his dream.

      Brian, do we have this car registered on the 1964 Daytona Convertible Owners' Registry?

        Way to go Brian. You did a great job bringing the 64 Convert back to life. It looks like new again.

          Yep, that is one beautiful Daytona. When you look at that nice design, then look at the boxy 64 Chevy, you have to wonder why Studebaker didn't far outsell the square box Chevy.

                No doubt a better looking design but there wasn't a rumor about GM going out of business. I'm sure purchasers felt safer purchasing a Chevy than a Studebaker with a questionable parent company future. Such a sad loss.

                  Reminds me of the guy travelling to St Louis and broke the axle-back on the road in record time because of this forum.
                  That's what this is all about.

                      I like the basic color combination. White with a black top looks very classy.

                        Brian, I'm glad I was able able to help you guys get together! This is indeed proof the Studebaker Forum is truly an international organization when a guy from Tinley Park IL can get two guys from Australia together for a beautiful R2 convertible.

                          Anyhow the old 64 made the 700 mile trip no problems!
