  • Boat Load of Studebaker's Friday

    This Friday morning we are joining some Studebaker's from eastern Washington, Bellingham and Whidbey Island taking the Anacortes to Victoria ferry, to drive up Vancouver Island for the 2016 Northwest Overdrive Tour.
    If anyone else is planning to catch the 8:30am boat and want to caravan with other Studes, we hope to see you in Anacortes.

    The Vancouver Island Chapter always does a fantastic job with driving tours and events!
    We can't wait to see so many Studebaker's driven and their drivers creating "Miles of Smiles".

    Thanks to the Vancouver Island Chapter for hosting this years NWOD Tour!

            Say Hi to Phil Singher on Whidbey, who cares for the Swedish Studebaker, the Volvo.

              Wish I could ride along, but just got back from delivering a G.H. from Fresno to Stevens Point, WI and an Avanti from Lancaster, PA to Tacoma.

              Gotta get back to my regular job and put some real money in the bank or my wife is liable to gut me like a fish.

              Enjoy the weekend!

                The 63 Wagonaire I'm planning to drive needs to have the carburetor rebuilt tonight when I get home and test drive to work tomorrow.
                Last week it had no door panels, rear seat and a long list of things to do.
                The week before there were no door window frames, regulators, glass and carpet to install.
                The NWOD is a good motivator and challenge to prepare a Studebaker for.
                Once you make the journey, it's very rewarding and motivates you to continue doing more!

                Thanks Rich for the window regulator, carb gasket and hopefully seat belts tomorrow
                Looking forward to seeing everyone who makes it.

                    No apostrophe needed in Studebakers.

                      This is interesting to me, I have been taught that the apostrophe is only used to show Possession, but the darned spell checker systems always want me to include one for everything that is Plural!

                      What gives, modern newbies and "techies" in this World don't know what they are talking about or what?

                        I didn't get many photo's (too busy having fun), but linked are a few slides I took:


                        The 2016 NW Overdrive Tour was great and the Vancouver Island Chapter did a fantastic job!
