    We didn't plan anything for the day as a chapter activity. I know, I know we should be ashamed of our selves but maybe we'll do better next year.

    On a personal note, I heard glass packs rumbleing into my yard this morning before I even got my jeans on.
    I was enjoying my 2nd cup of coffee and looking the forum over when Josh rushed in and said "C'mon Papa! it's drive your Studebaker day. We gotta go!"

    His Grandma said the fuel pump was out on her car so he would either have to fix it for her or let her drive his. Josh says "OK, hop in." Next I hear his lark start up and go idleing out into the road...Then G-Ma FLOORED it!
    When they returned I had gotten out and done my morning chores. So Josh and I took my Lark for a spin down the road and back.

    Now we were ready to go to town. We drove Josh's car to his aunt Rebekah's house.She had said she wanted a ride in his car on this day. She also wanted him to change the oil in her car. Rebekah drove the Lark to the shop while I followed in her little Ford.

    After we serviced her car,she took Josh home as he had a Church activity this afternoon. I stayed and worked around the shop the rest of the day,then got in my Silver Hawk and came home.

    this day I drove 3 Studebakers,and Josh's 60 Lark was driven by 4 different people.

    I talked to my son who said he was taking his wife to lunch in his 51 Starlight.

    So I guess the Thornton Clan had a pretty good IDYSD!!

              My wife and I with one other member, Mike Benson drove two of our Studebaker's, to Richmond Hill Georgia’s Fish Tales for lunch then Fort McAllister with our final photo stop with the Fort McAllister Marina as the backdrop. It was a nice sunny day and the Studebaker's were enjoyed by the others eating lunch at Fish Tails, Fort McAllister with questions and photos taken.

              Our cars parked at the Fort McAllister Park Entrance. Fort McAllister was the last battle site in the Civil War and Sherman’s march to the sea just south of Savannah Georgia.
