  1. Golden Quill awards

    I received the May 3 issue today of Old Cars Weekly today and Ed Meyer, editor of The Steering Wheel, the monthly newsletter of the Missouri/Illinois Gateway Chapter (SDC and AOAI) won the Golden Quill award in the Regional Sub Compact division. (Ed won honorable mentions in some past years, but this is the first full award!) Ann Turner, editor of SDC’s Turning Wheels and also me, editor of the AOAI’s Avanti Magazine won in the National Luxury division. Other than Turning Wheels and Avanti Magazine, Ed's Steering Wheel was the only other Studebaker publication to win a certificate in the competion. Three other Studebaker publications received honorable mentions: The Echo, by Chris Collins in the Grand Canyon State Chapter; The Studebaker Spokesman, by Claude Chmielewski of the Wisconsin Region, SDC; and Brian Curtis, editor of the Antique Studebaker Club’s Northwest Passage, Pacific Northwest ASC chapter.

  10. Visor repair/restoration

    If you want to try repairing your visors, if not too far gone, check out the article in Avanti Magazine #170, Spring/Summer 2015, on page 50. You just might be able to repair cracks in your sun visors using supplied from most good art supply stores.

    Probably just an illusion..... although whoever assembled it in France may have clocked the compressor halves a little off to one side.

    Finally, an answer! I thought someone else would know this one! First photo is R4578, still on the road in France. Second photo is R3422, still on the road in southern California.

    Ted, if you mouse over a user's display name, you will see a box pop up with a link to send a message, like in the screenshot below when I moused over your display name.

    extra points for you!! exhaust cutouts on his California car only.... cable to open and close the exhaust cut-outs were on the console, behind the heater/vent controls on his '63 Avanti 63R-3422. Pull the two handles in front of the automatic gear shifter and the noise quotient goes up! give up yet on what was unique on 3422 and 4578 under the hood?

    No... Not Chevy engines I know.... I've been in both... but waiting to see who else might know. (hint: pictures of both have been published in Avanti Magazine) And for extra points, what performance modification was installed in Loewy's '63 R2 Avanti that he drove in southern California?
