  • DYS Day Virginia Beach, Virginia

    My son is away at college, and my daughter is away in the military. No matter, my son's friends help me out. Here is one of them doing his part for 2017 DYS Day.

    His friends like the pedal start and the column shifter.

      Was this for a special event or just to get that one Stude on the road for IDYSD?

        It has been on the road for a couple of years now, but mostly just as a novelty to drive around the neighborhood. Nothing special other than the IDYSD. I had already taken a tour around the neighborhood on the nice Saturday morning as an excuse to delay starting my chores. I further delayed by looking at the forum and was reminded of the day. I printed the sign then went out again later to offer the drive to some of my son's friends in honor of the occasion. The one in the photo did the same for the 2016 day. My son had not yet gone to college on the 2015 day, so he did the drive then.

          Has the friend gotten the Studebaker bug yet? Once the disease is in the blood there is no cure. He will have to have a maintenance dose of Studebakers from then on.

            Not yet, but by showing that I can keep old things running, it shows that they can also. Another one has taken on the revival of a 1973 VW bus, 24 years older than he is.
