Presidents Report

The half-way meet was a great success thanks to Meredith and her helpers.  She is a great organiser and makes it look effortless.

There were not many SA members this year however it was great to see so many Victorian members and to catch up once again and renew friendships.

Well done Meredith.

I have spoken to Lloyd Burns, who informed me that Michael is in Hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery and he will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Librarian:

June Turning Wheels is in and has is on Meredith’s bookcase.

Federation Report

Marty absent. Brenton will attend next meeting in August.

 National Report:

Refer to front of Stude News.

Meredith has been looking into flying verses driving to attend the National and the cost difference. The cost with fying and driving is around the same except with driving you will also have to take extra travelling days into account and for people that still working they would be losing days. Approximate cost per couple including flights/petrol, accommodation, food and spending $3000.00

Past Events:

JAN AND GRAHAM FOALES PLACID ESTATE

Many thanks to Graham and Jan Foale for having our May outing at their holiday home on the River Murray at Placid Estate.

There was a great turn-up of members.  We met at the Stirling exchange and headed up to Strathalbyn for coffee, cakes and a chat (some of us stragglers accidently took a different route) then across punt at Wellington to Placid Estate for lunch.

Our ladies supplied a great range of salads and the men took over the BBQ. We then sat on their huge balcony which had been set up with long tables and chairs to enjoy the food, drinks and fantastic views over the river.

A storm was predicted which caused some members to leave their Studes at home in favour of x-brands, however it didn’t happen and instead was a beautifully calm afternoon enjoyed by all.

The outing was well supported by our members and thanks again to the Foales for their hospitality.

Joyleen

Memorial Run with Victoria to Mildura

Eight members of the SCCASA headed to Mildura on a gloomy day. Trevor and Joyleen drove via the Northern expressway whilst Graham, Jan, Brenton and Meredith headed off via the SE Freeway at 9.30am. You were lucky to see the tail lights of the cars in front of you through the densely thick fog, but the faster you went through the fog, it managed to thin out.

Daryl and Maxine had Hawk trouble so it was decided to meet them at Karoonda, which we did. Now there was a threesome. The drive was ho hum as long drives are. Our car the HT purred through the highway and did not miss a beat. The other cars did the same as we arrived to a wet soggy Mildura around 4pm that same day. We met up with Trevor and Joyleen.

Jan,Maxine  and I did a spot of shopping the Mildura Central to gather ingredients for the BBQ we were having on Sunday and the morning tea on Sunday at the Merbein Cemetery.

Once we were done it was time for our first engagement at the Eastgate Tavern for our dinner.

We met up with our Victorian members and all the chitter chatter started. The manager of the Tavern made sure everything was to our satisfactory to which it was, a very enthusiastic man made us very welcome.

I am not saying here that all ladies are not special, we are, but there were three of our lady members who have been around the Studebaker movement for many years, before they were teenagers! and it so fabulous seeing  them accompany their fathers (all in their late middle years) to this run. I speak of Cheryl whose father is James Quigley, Tina whose father is Bob Godley, and Di whose father is Phil Smith. It was just great to see these senior members come and join in.  So, thank you to Cheryl, Tina and Di for accompanying your Dads, it is so special to all of us in the Studebaker family. Tissues now put away I continue.

With day one under our belt and a good night sleep it’s up and adam early for breakfast, itineraries and maps at the ready  we now head off to Orange World for a Citrus Tour. Richard had alternator troubles and Wayne’s front grill was falling out so they stayed behind to get these little repairs sorted out. Hunter let the secret out that it was his Nanny’s BDay so Happy Birthday Lesley. Our tour began with an introduction from Lynton on how the process from getting the fruit from the tree to sorting the fruit to sending to market. A demonstration of the old timber sorting machine clunking away, still in good use over many many years. Lynton also demonstrated on how to peel an orange, peel an orange you may say !! yes but with this magic gadget it leaves the whole orange intact with the rind off. Naturally it was a great sales item and I guess most of us bought one for ourselves and one for someone we know. Then our tour with Mario began. The tour was very good but Mario was excellent, he has the gift of the gab. The three little boys Hunter, Peter and Clary just enjoyed the train ride and Mario made sure that they did. A bird in one of the orange trees whispered in Mario’s ear that there was a Birthday on board his train and being of Belgium and Italian origin, he had to stop and we all had to sing Happy Birthday Lesley. A great informative tour by Mario about citrus how to look after your citrus, even the guys have to pee on their trees to help them along. Morning tea of orange cake, orange juice, tea and coffee was served with a follow of tasting of orange blossom honey and marmalade. Many purchases were made. What a great outing.

We then headed to the Dockside Café at the Marina for lunch. Great lunch was had by all. Hunter, Peter and Clary saw big fish in the river by the dock, they were huge carp. Tina and Di found their dream boat to have their next year’s NYE party, hope I get an invite! Even though I did not realize it belonged to Sue Salter!

We all waddled out when finished not wanting to even think of any more food to eat that day.

The next function for the day was the Mildura Arts Centre. A special display on there was the ABC Play School. Showing videos of play school from the 60’s through to the recent days. There I found young Peter Andriske singing along to I’m a little teapot, around the corner was Tina, and Maxine  doing the tip me over pour me out routine. The old home really bought back on how spoilt we are today with all our mod cons. A great place for a visit. Well, the real highlight of the day was seeing our member Jan trying to organise our male drivers to position their cars around the fountain for a photo and drone shoot. We know when we organise men our right is their left and their right is our left, well to organise 10 men with right, right, left , left is impossible but to organise  1 woman  with right, right, left, left is possible in one move. I laughed until I ached, but Jan got them organized even her husband Graham who had to bring his car to the right, left, left of the fountain to be seen in the photo. Peter a new member for Victoria bought his drone along to take photos which had us all intrigued. It sounded like a huge mozzie. Thanks to Daryl, Trevor, Dave, Peter, Michael, Brenton, Graham, Peter, Mike, Di, and Gordon for getting your cars into place.

Back to our Motel for some free time and more chitter chatter and coffee.

Guess what was next, Dinner. Paris Andriske gave instructions on how the first part of Sunday was going to be run.

 

Sunday was another gloomy day although it was dry.  We headed to Merbein Cemetery to celebrate our late departed member Peter Andriske and our more recent departed members to celebrate their lives with us in the Studebaker family.

Paris gave a brief talk on his life with his Dad and his escapades and had us in laughter. Young Peter placed some flowers on his Grandfather’s grave. Tissues out again! Tea and Coffee and biscuits went down well thanks to our barista Trevor. Thanks to Marie for her home cooked chocolate balls and to others for their contributions. Peter Fitzgerald had his drone out taking photos of the cars as they were parked for a great photo shoot. From there we did our original cruise to the cemetery in reverse and drove back to our accommodation for a BBQ lunch.  The SA members got going fairly quickly to get everything organized for lunch, thanks to motel host Phil who primed the BBQ to get it hot for us all the meat was cooked in no time thanks to Trev, Brent and Daryl.

Back on the road again we headed to the Holden Museum . Maxine who is great on her parts recognition put her hand through a wall mounted pockets and feeling what is in them.  Between Maxine, Daryl and Dave they got it all sorted out. Joyleen, Di, and myself thought of something totally different! A very enjoyable outing and followed by a coffee.

Bit more free time, shopping or going to the gym, gem display as some of the members did.

Last meal of the evening at the Eastgate Tavern was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Presentation by Vic members to Mike Gardner for all his work was presented and thankyou’s to SA members for putting on a great event.

MCLAREN VALE VINTAGE & CLASSIC RUN APRIL 22ND

Sunday dawned a superb Autumn morning as we stormed up to the top of taps to meet our fellow Studes. Stormed being a relative term, it is uphill. We travelled down the old South Rd amongst many other entrants to arrive at Serafinos Winery where hundreds were already assembled. Lined up for a bacon and egg sandwich but unfortunately there was no bacon! Apparently the ordering was left to a male. That’ll teach em.  The paddock filled up quickly with over 500 vehicles gleaming in the morning sun under a clear sky. Two old biplanes doing circuits overhead added to the spectacle.

At 11am we moved out and travelled down the main street of Mclaren Vale, and as in previous years the street was lined with thousands of spectators with many more lovely old cars parked along the route. A very knowledgeable chap on the back of a ute with a microphone had something to say about every car that passed . This certainly added to the events credibility and was a great help to the spectators, especially those pointing at the bullet nose with the all too familiar “what is it ? “

Once out of town we drove to Doc Adams Winery, only 15 minutes away. We shared the shady lawned area with Rileys, Jags and other assorted “British machinery”. The winery provided each car with a nice pack of local cheese, dip, pate and crackers and one drink of choice. Last year we bought our lunch as I recall. We all purchased a bottle of something to wash it down.  Maxine and Darryl produced a large fruit platter to finish off.

A lone Guitar player provided unobtrusive background music to add to the enjoyment.

There was plenty of interest in our cars by other entrants and the public. David Trembath attracted extra special attention from two delightful young ladies who insisted on having their photos taken with him and his. He was last seen swapping phone numbers and trying to convince them that the rego on his car “STUD 57” was in fact his age. I’m not sure how that went!!

I think it was about 4 pm when we eventually packed up and headed home, it was quite a warm afternoon but all our cars performed well.

Thanks to Maxine, Darryl, David, Dean ,Shirley and our other friends and family who dropped in to make the afternoon a lovely social occasion. It is a great event to enter, it’s not expensive, it’s not far from home and it has the best exposure to the public of all our outings. It is certainly worth doing.

PAST EVENTS:

Show Day

This year our Show Day was held at a park near the sea at North Haven.

We pitched our Club marquee and set our chairs amongst the lovely old pine trees.

It was expected to be 35 degrees but with the sea breeze and shade of the trees it was quite cool and pleasant.

Ten beautiful Studes and 3 X-cars were parked side by side facing Lady Gowrie Drive and attracted a lot of attention from people and cars passing by.

We welcomed new members Jason, Kelly and daughter Maggie in their very nice Valiant Wagon.

Also visitors, Kerry, Bob and Judy’s daughter who had just flown in from Melbourne to be with us, and Ron and Linda Broadstock past members, in their newly acquired 63 Hawk.

The raffle, a huge tub of car cleaning products was drawn by Ray Lamming and won by Daryl Jones.

We enjoyed picnic lunches and good conversation amongst a great bunch of people.

I would like to thank all members who came along and made it such a pleasant day.

PAST EVENTS:

Hot Rodders at Strathalbyn 19th October 2017

What looked like being a real sluggish day actually turned out to be a very enjoyable event.

The only staters at Crafers Bus interchange were the Jones and Lamming vehicles who thought that was it. When we arrive at the Memorial oval at Strath we were joined by David Trembath, Denis Nitschke and Shirley, Rex and Elizabeth Brown plus our old members Lyn and Ron Braodstock. We then all had a gasbag and enjoyed viewing over a hundred magnificent modified vehicles. Very sorry I left the camera home.

The event is a must for next year so keep the third Sunday in October free as they will definitely repeat this successfully attended event.

19th November

PICNIC DAY IN BAROSSA – Trevor Hughes

On a beautiful sunny morning, expected top of 30degrees,

we met on Port Wakefield Road at the Caltex Service Station and cruised up to the Northern Freeway through Tanunda, Nuriootpa to Angaston where we set up in the Memorial Park in the heart of the town under lovely shady trees near a running brook to have our picnic lunch.

Attending were Ray and Carole Lamming, Fred and Betty Jones, Bob and Judy Reischmueller, David Trembath and Bette, Brenton Thomas, Lloyd and Michael Burns, Trevor and Joyleen Hughes.

Luckily for the rest of us, the only person the mosquitoes took too was Ray Lamming.  Poor Ray was icing his lumps down and had to sit in the sun.

Studebakers in attendance were, Brenton’s Daytona, Bob’s Lark, Fred’s Hawk, Lloyd’s Lark, Trev’s Avanti.

After lunch we travelled to Laughing Jack Winery at Marananga where the owners  Shawn and Briony Kalleske gave us a tour of their winery, told us their family story and history in the area going back to the mid 1800’s.   Shawn explained about the growing and blending involved and we were able to taste the many varieties they produce.  It was very relaxed and enjoyable.

Many members bought and took samples home.

After taking some photos of our cars we meandered home after a very pleasant outing catching up with our members.

Thank you to Trevor and Joyleen and Kerrin for the report and photos.

Thanks to the members who are participating in the runs, sorry we could not make the last run Drive Your Studebaker Day as Meredith needed some RnR and we decided to run away to Mansfield to her brother. Alas he got the flu and we drove home on Drive your Studebaker Day. We are going to be a little detained for a couple of months as we prepare Meredith’s Mum’s home for the realestate market. As we are the only one’s here we have an abundance of work to do. If we can make the runs we will come but we are on a time schedule.

PAST EVENTS:

DRIVE YOUR STUDEBAKER DAY SEPTEMBER 10TH 2017

A group total of over 1500 Kilometres was achieved by the members of the S.A. Club who drove to Balaklava to celebrate “DRIVE YOUR STUDEBAKER DAY”. The weather gods were on our side and the spring sunshine was very welcome after a very cold winter. The five beautifully presented Studebakers two GT’s a Silver Hawk, Lark and  a  Bullet nose received heaps of attention at all our stops and along the highway

On our trip we finally got to see Vic who is on call at all times for rail traffic direction problems.   SUNDAY morning no less .A truck carrying chickens had missed an S turn and had written off the train   stop lights at an S bend between Two Wells and Mallala   and our man was supervising a brand new set of lights. We can finally believe all those apologies now. Well done Vic!!

Balaklava is situated nearly 100 Kilometres north of Adelaide and is a very productive farming area. The Area was a major influence in the manufacture of all farm implements during South Australia’s early   settlement  and  farming history .The Museums we visited in the town are a tribute and guide to “A COMMUNITY AT WORK”. All the history and I mean all the history is available and   the    Urlwin Park Agricultural Museum is a showcase for Balaklava-made collection of horse drawn transport and machinery.

Norma our host helped us view all manner of sheds with the town history and we were lucky to see   an elderly retired farmer” driving”  a tractor towing a  farrow churning around a paddock. A real feat as he   was standing on the farrow equipment controlling the tractor with ropes .It was similar to a man driving a team of horses and a different way to display your restoration.

We also had a poker  run  and a pair of Kings picked by Jan  Foale was strong enough to win the Bubbly Red. Well done Jan.!!

Thank you to the Foale ,Hughes, Jones, Rischmueller and Trembath  families and the Red Mustang for attending the Drive Day .Also thanks to Irene and Geoff Dawson foe the help in organising the day.

The locals had obviously heard all the robbery jokes as all volunteers were retirees. Balaklava thank you.

As you are aware Marty lost his home due to an unfortunate fire. I discussed with members of the Committee that we donate a gift to Marty to help him buy some essentials for living. This was eagerly agreed by the Committee and the members.

Marty responded:

Thank you to members and committee for your kind generosity.

I have no intention of leaving the club even though I have lost some of my Studebakers, I feel that I have a role to play in my club and I look forward in attaining another car, being of use and help to you all. Thank you to Margie whom without her help I do not know where I would be.

Thank you for being friends

20th August – Breakfast at West Beach Surf Life Saving Club

Despite the cold wintery morning we had a good turn up of brave souls who got up early and headed to the West Beach Surf Life Saving Club for a hearty breakfast. Attending were Fred and Betty Jones, Graham and Jan Foale, Daryl and Maxine Jones, Brenton and Meredith Thomas, David Trembath, Anthony, Kerrin and Curtis McMahon and Trevor and Joyleen Hughes.

The meals were huge and varied, we were spoilt with choices. David even ordered a Vego Breakfast and added Bacon, not sure it would still be Vego Breakfast?

Four Studebakers and an X car that journeyed along as far as Moana then back along the seafront through Seaford to Noarlunga Bakery where we again lined up for more coffees.

The cars looked great and varied, a Bullet Nose, Hawk, Avanti and Silver Hawk and received many admiring glances. It was a lovely morning catching up with fellow members and I would like to thank you all for coming out and joining our outing.

President’s Report

Winter has come back with a vengeance perfect for our xmas in July this Sunday so come along and enjoy. Stay dry stay well, stay warm. Hoping to see you all out and about.

President

Brenton Thomas

News just In: I received a phone call on Wednesay26th July from Marty Mardiste letting me know that he had just lost everything, his sheds, his home due to a fire that started in the back shed. Marty and Margaret were asleep when Margie’s son Corey was leaving his house in the early hours of the morning for work and noticed red embers flying across the road. He used his hose to no avail then started banging on the door to wake Marty and Margie to get out. Which they did and are ok.

Being the quiet man that he is made all the news stations local and interstate.

As quoted from this 80 year old gentleman” The fire is a bit disappointing but life must go on. Whatever is – you’ve got to make the best of it and take a new direction. Travel is now on the agenda with Margie”

What a great attitude to have and I for one will learn from it.

Thank you to all our members who have either contacted myself or Marty who have offered assistance in any way, Thank you to you all.

Brenton

PAST EVENTS:

Christmas in July Outing

After attending Wednesday night’s meeting and noticing all the absentees with various stages of the flue, I did not expect our Christmas in July to be successful.

However apart from phone calls  Graham and Jan, Marty and Margaret who were still quite sick the others dragged themselves from their sick beds and were able to join us on our outing.

We commenced from Semaphore at 11.00am and cruised along the seafront and back to the Glanville Hotel for lunch.

Several of our Studebakers parked out front of the very old, historical Hotel and made a very impressive site in the glorious sunshine.

We sat around a long beautifully set Christmas themed luncheon table (thanks Sue) and were fed a delicious lunch of roast beef or turkey with all the trimmings, followed by plum pudding and custard or cheesecake, strawberries and ice-cream.

A very short, stout Santa delivered boxes of chocolates to the ladies and looked very cute (thanks Curtis you did a great job) and was caught sitting on Meredith’s knee instead of the other way round!

A very well fed crowd enjoyed themselves and had a pleasant time. Thank you for attending.

Get well wished to all those who were unable to attend and we hope you are better soon.

Bon voyage to Carole and Ray Lamming who are off on a romantic Hawaiian cruise to celebrate their Golden Wedding Anniversary, congratulations to you both.

FOOTNOTE:

Congratulations to Jim Quigley on obtaining Life Membership, well deserved too.

Marty reported about the press release from the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure new code of practice (A 90 day conditional registration scheme for Historic, Left Hand Drive and Street Rod Vehicles. Effective 1 July 2017 for more information please see our web site. If you require a print off and posted to you please phone Meredith 0412 985 209

Dated 12th May 2017 from the Government of South Australia Department of Planning Transport and Infrastructure

CHANGES TO THE CONDITIONAL REGISTRATION SCHEME

The SA Government has approved changes to the current conditional registration scheme for historic, left hand drive and street rod vehicles.

These changes aim to remove red tape to allow more classic car lovers to enjoy their hobby out on the road, while also making the scheme more nationally consistent.  These changes will come into operation on 1 July2017.

The approve changes include the following:-

  1. Allow vehicles, modified from their original design, to enter the scheme. This will provide flexibility to allow owners to improve the ride, handling and safety of these classic vehicles, as well as cosmetic enhancements.  The registration scheme will no longer dictate the types of modifications permitted, merely remove this requirement altogether.
  2. Move away from a fixed cut-off date of 1979 to a rolling 30 year vehicle age for eligibility to enter the scheme: for both right hand and left hand drive vehicles,
  3. Make changes to the Code of Practice to decrease the necessity for motoring clubs to undertake vehicle inspections: reducing the administrative burden of the scheme. This will remove the need for both initial inspections upon scheme entry and all 3 yearly inspections. However, in all cases, there will remain the ability for the Registrar or motoring clubs to request vehicle inspection on an as-need basis. This will enable clubs to uphold their constitutional values.
  4. Remove the need for annual statutory declarations.
  5. Reduce limitations which ban left-hand drive vehicles with safety improvements, such as updated braking systems.  This will allow modifications to LHD vehicles and will treat them the same as RHD vehicles currently on the road.

To find out about the current conditional registration scheme please visit sa.gov.au

NB The onus is always falls on the owner not the club they are associated with.

Ignorance is no excuse – so please do the right thing. If in doubt contact Marty Mardiste or Ray Lamming for the correct information.

Next meetings on the: 19th August (AGM), 14th October,  25th November

 BUSINESS ARISING

It was bought to the attention by Trevor Hughes that “ why are other states including their minutes in Stude News?” when reported to the meeting after the National Meet 2017 that minutes were not going to be included, it was going to be more of social news and information.

NB: Good item of which the committee had no answer!

Discussion from the members who do not have access to “Internet Technology” wish to have minutes inserted into Stude News.

 PAST EVENTS:

25th June

National Motor Museum

Met at Bunnings – Parafield Gardens on corner of Main North Rd and Kings Rd, at the front of the car park  at 10.00am were Bob and Judy, Daryl and Maxine, Ray and Carole, Trevor and Joyleen, Brenton and Meredith. To farewell us off was new Granddad Steve Langelaar. Congratulations to both you and Sue and a new great grandson to Judy Norton and the late Cyril Norton.

Heading off towards One Tree Hill, then through to Kersbrook. The scenery was quite delightful green pastures with stock grazing. Remains of what was a fire last summer with new growth on the trees. We took an extended drive across to  Williamstown, great scenic route lopey roads not many twists and winds just a comfortable cruise for the classic cars.

Our cruise was for about an hour and we then arrive at the National Motor Museum. We were able to park on the grounds with easy access by one of the staff. She was quite taken with our car Daytona 64 Studebaker as she named her son Daytona. She had not seen one before and Brent informed her that ours was the only one in the state. Once we all parked we headed indoors as it was quite a bit warmer.

The day turned to a constant sprinkle of light rain and quite a cool breeze blowing from the south pole. Joining us at the Museum were Marty and Margaret who came up from Goolwa, quite a drive, but that is what our members do drive and cruise.

We all wandered around at our leisure and then met up at the coffee tables supplied indoors. Those that bought their lunch ate it while others went off to buy their lunch. All in all everyone was very comfortable.

It took a couple of hours for more to have a good wander around, listening to media that was presented in a couple of places in the museum.

We listened to the Bush Mechanic exhibition showing their ingenuity on getting out of a tight fix in context of Warlpiri storytelling, music and art and wider issues (motoring and non motoring) affecting Aboriginal Australians.

A couple of Bush Mechanic cars were on display in other words very basic quite a lot of the car had disappeared, no roof, no seatbelts, no boots, in fact it was air conditioned 24/7.

Once again we seemed to meet up again after our wanders quite a relaxing time.

It certainly was worth the trip to the National Motor Museum, we had not been here for quite a few years.

Thank you to the members who attended it makes organizing a run worthwhile, hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
