  3. Hi, I know its been a really long time, but did you ever find a carb for that Caddy? I have a friend that has a 896S WCFB core. We were going thru some of his extra stuff and I wrote down all the different carb numbers so I could identify them. That was one of the WCFB's in the bunch. Drop me a line if you still need one. Good luck, Phil
  4. Yes, he's sure going to leave a big void around here in the car community. He was always willing to give advice or a tour at the drop of a hat. Friends and I really enjoyed the opportunity to walk through his museum and have him explain each car in detail. His recall was amazing.

  5. I'm posting this for a friend here in town, and have it posted in the general ads too. It's spring cleaning time and this ol Stude's days are numbered. He's not a car guy, so this thing will be hitting the big electro-magnet in the sky very soon, unless somebody drags it off. 48 Stude 2 door Commander, no engine or trans in car, but he does have the original tranny and some of the engine. (6cyl/3-speedOD) Rust in the floorboards and trunk floor. Not sure about the frame. The body is solid enough to save but could also be parted out. He just pulled it out of the weeds and set it up on blocks. He also took a bunch more pictures which are posted on the Flikr site below. $ 300 obo Phil http://www.flickr.com/photos/30878003@N06/ Contact me or call him direct: Rick 812-243-9962 or richard.jones at cinergy.com<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
  6. Leno was here in Terre Haute, Indiana several years ago and rode around town in Frank Klept's Turbine car (991231). I think at the time it was the only one in private hands. I wonder whose he was in this time? Later, Phil
  7. I just saw this on another board I'm on and thought I'd pass it along to those it matters most to. I checked thier website first and found no mention of this, but it may be pretty fresh news. Good luck, Phil SASCO, the last remaining directly Studebaker related business in South Bend Indiana, which sells NOS Studebaker parts from the supply left over from Studebaker factory production will close forever at the end of 2009!!! The parts inventory is owned Dennis and his wife, and he was leasing the old Studebaker Engineering building from the City. They are not renewing his building lease, so they can tear down one of the last old Studebaker buildings in the revitalization area. Dennis is going to retire since he is of that age. He did save the parts about 10 years ago when the City tore down the old building they were in. He ain't going thru moving all that stuff again! It was a MASSIVE job!! If you have ANY WANTS/DESIRES for parts for your Studebaker projects, you better call and order it and spares, There is talk of Studebaker International in southern Indiana absorbing the inventory, but don't wait in case it falls thru. If no one buys the stuff, it could end up in the scrap heap, which we hope does NOT happen. SASCO 1-574-287-3381
  8. Here's what I ended up sending. If you get a chance drop them a line. Thanx, Phil http://www.in.gov/idem/5273.htm Attn: #08-674 (APCB) I/M Program - "Antique Vehicle" Manda Clevenger: Mail Code 61-50 Rules Development Section/Office of Air Quality Indiana Department of Environmental Management I'm writing to oppose the changes to the definition of an antique car in this bill (08-674). I realize that at this time it only pertains to two counties in Indiana, but could very easily be enacted statewide in the future. Given the VERY small percentage of vehicles this will even effect, I feel this modification is a total waste of time and resources. By your own admission these cars are seldom driven and are small in numbers. Any gains in air quality achieved by focusing on such a small percentage of the automotive population would not even be measurable. Furthermore, requiring these vehicles to posses their original emission equipment and have it be fully operational is ridiculous. Most of the OEM and aftermarket parts support for these emission systems has long since vanished and may even further erode if any U.S. auto manufacturers should go bankrupt. Requiring these cars to be tested annually and restricted in mileage only adds to the frustrations of the owners and the wallets of the testing facilities. It does nothing for clean air in Indiana. These vehicles are lovingly restored, kept and maintained mostly by hobbyists like myself. Please drop this ill advised proposal and look elsewhere for legitimate reductions __________________
  9. <span style="font-weight: bold">Indiana Regulators Propose to Redefine Antique Vehicles to Force More into Emissions Tests </span> The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is proposing to redefine the term ‘antique vehicle” in order to force more of these hobby cars into the emissions inspection program. Under existing law, an antique vehicle is defined as “a motor vehicle or motor scooter that is at least 25-years old.” Under the regulation, the definition would be revised to require that the vehicle must be at least 25-years old, registered and plated as a historic motor vehicle, driven a maximum of 3,000 miles per calendar year, and include Federally required pollution control equipment for that make and model year. Under the plan, the vehicle would be periodically forced into a vehicle emission test site to verify that these requirements have been met. We Urge You to Submit Written Comments Opposing This Regulatory Proposal by March 13, 2009 Existing law in Indiana exempts any vehicle 25-years old and older from emissions testing. Indiana’s current emissions testing exemption recognizes the minimal impact of vehicles 25-years old and older on vehicle emissions and air quality. Vehicles 25-years old and older constitute a small portion of the overall vehicle population and are a poor source from which to look for emissions reduction. Antique vehicles are overwhelmingly well-maintained and infrequently driven (about one-third the miles each year as a new vehicle). Legislators and regulators are feeling the heat from a failed effort to meet air quality goals and are looking for a convenient scapegoat. The old car hobby should not carry the burden of their mistakes!
