  • President’s Message

    September 14, 2010

    Remember the old adage….”whenever you’re in the mountains, be prepared; because at some point, it’s going to rain”…and it did! Nice drive up, and the whole time we’re all standing in the restaurant parking lot, it was great. Fifteen or twenty minutes after we all were inside eating, the bottom fell out. You could barely see the cars it was raining so hard. After the fantastic buffet meal and the usual business meeting, we ventured outside to find the sun out and the pavement dry. You’d never know it rained except for the water on the floorboard!!

    Great meeting with a good number of cars and people as well. I want to thank all that attended and Jim and Carol Nichols for making the arrangements and furnishing the door prizes.

    It was also great to see Tom and Maureen Elliott made the long trek from Fayetteville on the south side of Atlanta. I know it was a letdown to drive all that way only to get an unexpected “shower” before you could enter the restaurant. (Not to mention the others who graciously helped to get Tom out of the car, onto his scooter and into the restaurant.) It goes without saying, no one brought an extra change of clothes, but not to worry: Billy Carey and Jim Nichols to the rescue! Billy went to his hotel room to get a couple of shirts, while Jim took off to Roses and purchased sweat pants for Tom. You can’t beat that for teamwork and hospitality!

    As you can see in reading the minutes of the meeting, all is coming together for the Zone Meet October 8-10. If you haven’t already registered, please do so, as this is a big help in determining how many to plan for. Same for the hotel rooms: please make your reservations right away.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Zone Meet. Bring as many Studebakers (or parts) as you can! Any questions? Call me, Barbara, or Charlotte Delli.

    “Down The Road”….. Please remember at the December Chapter Meeting we will hold our election of Chapter officers for the upcoming year. As prescribed by our chapter by-laws, the President and Vice President can serve no more than two consecutive one-year terms. Having said that, my and Tom’s two years are UP. It’s time for some new faces and new ideas. Just think….maybe it’s YOUR turn!!

  • North Georgia Chapter, Studebaker Drivers Club Meeting Minutes

    September 11, 2010

    President Dan Miller opened the meeting. Thank you to Jim and Carol Nichols for hosting us today at the Tin Loong Restaurant; what a great buffet!

    We welcomed our visitors and guests, and announced birthdays, anniversaries, and those we need to keep in our thoughts and prayers. On behalf of the whole chapter, Dan extended our condolences to Chuck Lampman, whose grandson passed away recently.

    Barbara Miller gave a Southeast Zone Meet update:

    • We have 27 meet registrations to date, with 54 room-nights reserved, thus exceeding our minimum room commitment to the hotel. The hotel will keep our block of rooms available after Sept. 15, in order to accommodate as many people as possible at our special rate.

    • Two registrations are from South Georgia chapter members (excluding North Georgia members who belong to both).

    • We need donations of snacks, soft drinks, finger sandwiches, etc. to have in the hospitality room on Friday and Saturday. You can bring your food contributions to the hospitality room upon checking in. Please let Barbara know what you intend to bring, so we can round out the donations with extra items as needed.

    • We also need door prizes. Please let Dan or Barbara know what you are donating. Hobo and Brenda Bodkin are handling the door prizes, so you can give those to the Bodkins when you arrive at the meet.

    • A group of us will get together within the next couple of weeks to assemble the goody bags. We will ask for some volunteers to help once we finalize the date.

    • We have selected a food vender to serve hamburgers and hot dogs in the show area on Saturday. For $5.00, you can get a hamburger or two hot dogs, plus chips and a drink. Our vendor comes well-recommended and caters a large number of events.

    • Contact Dan or Barbara if you know of any parts vendors who would like to join us. Vendors who sell Studebaker items would naturally be the biggest draw, but someone does not have to be a Studebaker vendor to participate.

    • Ad space on the back of the meet t-shirts is available, at $150 per ad.

    • The Zone Meet planning committee will have another meeting, tentatively on Saturday September 25, at the hotel in Braselton.

    Wayne Lee brought a supply of the new SDC color brochures for us to share with prospective club members.

    Tom Elliott reports that a R-2 Studebaker Avanti with about 10,000 miles will be coming to the meet from Illinois. Sounds like a good opportunity for Avanti owners to see an authentic example as a guideline for our own maintenance and restoration work.

  • The ALS Association of Georgia Walk is on November 6th, and will again be in Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta. Walk check-in begins 8:30 AM, with the walk starting at 10:00 AM. Tom’s Scooterbakers team has a page on the event website for people to register to walk, and/or to make a donation. Visit http://tinyurl.com/23e5cnj for details, or contact Chris Collins for printed information.

    Tom’s Scooterbakers ALS walk team will be the beneficiary of our meet fund-raising. Janet Alspach showed us a mock-up of a Studebaker wall hanging to be auctioned at the meet.

    Dan reviewed the calendar of upcoming events as listed in The Hillholder. Hobo Bodkin told us about a chili cook-off and orphan car show their church is having in November. The event announcement will be in the newsletter.

    Charlotte Delli presented the Treasurer’s report; a copy of that will also be in the newsletter.

    50/50 drawing winners this month were Lee and Su Attaway, Charlie and Hellen Attaway’s son and daughter-in-law. They split the $76 pot with the chapter.

    Next, we drew for door prizes provided by our hosts the Nichols. Winners include: Janet Alspach, Charlie Attaway, Dotty Carto, Bill Delli, Charlotte Delli, Mike Hopper, and Alan Ziglin.

    Even though it was a very rainy day, the Jefferson Lions Club did hold their tenth annual car show on Saturday, August 14, with 70 cars and trucks and four antique tractors entered. The Lions Club made over $1300 in their DRIVE AGAINST DARKNESS for their sight program. Lenny Major showed his 1962 Champ pick-up and Pete McCaffrey won a trophy with his Hawk. Tim Taylor came from Colbert, Georgia and entered his 1960 Champ. Howard (Hobo) and Brenda Bodkin also came to see the show. Of course, Buddy had his 1961 Champ T-Cab on display. Dot Hunt

    Dear North GA. Studebaker Drivers Club Members,

    Thank you so much for the floral arrangement; the flowers were just beautiful. I am feeling much better now and am completely healed. Looking forward to the SE Zone Meet.

    Very Sincerely,

    Arlene Hollier

  • International Drive Your Studebaker Day 2010 By Alan Ziglin

    As we all know, Saturday September 4, 2010 was the second annual International Drive Your Studebaker Day. Rochelle and I spent our day with Charlie and Hellen Attaway. Since their Bullet Nose is not yet ready for outings, Rochelle and I drove our ’51 Starlight Coupe (known as “Bullet”) out to their home in Oxford. From there they took us to a local restaurant in Covington where Bullet was the center of attention. The owner of the restaurant said she’d never seen a car like ours and several pictures were taken including her behind the wheel. After lunch, we went to a produce stand just off the square in downtown Covington. While Charlie, Hellen and Rochelle chose what fresh produce they wanted, I saw a woman and her son looking at Bullet. I went over and let them sit in and enjoy the car while the mother told me about the bullet nose Studebaker she saw regularly as a child in public school. I got a picture of the son (Mom was camera shy) and I’ll try to remember his face, because I thought I saw a spark of interest which could turn him into a Studebaker person in the future. All totaled, our trip covered exactly 120 miles including lots of thumbs-ups and even one person in the passenger’s seat of a passing SUV who shouted to me at expressway speeds asking what kind of car I was driving. I was sure to shout the answer back loud enough so she heard “Studebaker”. Unfortunately, what with driving at highway speeds and shouting “Studebaker” I did not have a chance to get her picture, but I did get pictures of the Attaway’s and Ziglin’s at the restaurant and the young fellow at the produce stand who just might be a future Studebaker driver. All in all another good day of Studebakering!!!

    This is a 99 page book based on the articles of the same name that appeared in Turning Wheels in the early 1990s and which won the SDC's Churchill Award for Best Article, Non-Paid. The book contains all the material from the original series, which ran for a year and a half in The Hillholder, and not only replaces some material edited out for the TW series, but has updates and several new items that were written after the TW series was published.

    "Some Thoughts" is aimed at the first-time restorer, but will be of value to the more experienced; it doesn't try to be a "how to restore a car book", but gives you a look at the decision-making processes, tools, spaces and basic skills you'll need to do a restoration, and will provide a framework to help you structure your project.

    There are several chapters of Studebaker-specific advice. In the chapter devoted to engine rebuilding, I've tried to describe a step-by-step process that anybody can follow, and I’ve tried to include tips I've picked

    up in building 60+ engines. I've received many compliments on the engine chapter, and I'm glad to finally be able to get it in print.

    Some Thoughts on Restoring a Studebaker is available for $22.50 USD, plus $4 for handling and postage, for a total of $26.50 to US addresses. Canadian orders add $6.50 USD for postage, total $29.00 USD. To order a second book in the same order, add an additional $3 ($4 USD for Canadian orders). For Australia and Europe, shipping is $12, total $34.50 USD paid by PayPal only.

    The easiest way to purchase (and the only way if you are in Australia or Europe) is to PayPal the appropriate amount to me at

    , and mention Some Thoughts in the remarks section. Otherwise, if you live in the US or Canada, send your name, mailing address and a check or USPS money order for $26.50 ($29.00 USD bank draft for Canadian buyers) to:

    Chuck Lampman 4141 Lynette Ct. Kennesaw, GA. 30144-2293

    If mailing payment, please email me to notify me that the check is coming so I can set one aside for you, or get some more printed. (I try not to keep too big an inventory because they are expensive to stock.) (10/2010)
