Canadian Avanti Owners' Association
Hope all of you are doing well and keeping healthy. It’s been quite the summer, between Covid and a lousy Spring into July. In Ontario at least we did get to enjoy a month or so of fine weather into September. Likewise, October has been more like what July should have been! Well, I guess 2021 is a wrap by now. I almost think there were fewer events/shows than last year. We made it to one show an hour or so away, and that was pretty much it. Very well attended though with over 150 cars. A number of rides here and there but certainly a let down after last year. Also, with the border to the US still closed, those of you close by, have been denied those events/swap meets as well. Surely 2022 will see a return to business as usual. So just to announce, THE 2022 CALENDARS ARE IN. As last year, send Dave Moxham $20.00 and you will get a calendar and renewal of membership. Calendars alone are $15.00 Your membership dues are critical to us as it allows us to continue sponsorship of the Ron Hall Avanti at the Studebaker National Museum and to contribute to the annual International Meet, which will be in South Bend, the home of Studebaker/Avanti, in 2022. Not sure of dates yet, but something to consider if you have never attended. You will meet lots of Avanti friends, helpful advice, no matter your problems, automotive of course:) and a wealth of new and spare parts, associated items, attend workshops etc. You also have the opportunity to visit a number of buildings associated with the history of Studebaker as well as the National Museum. A great time and host city. And of course, one more tip for those of us who spend time on our backs under vehicles...how long before your neck cramps up?
A guy who
works for mining companies up north was staying in town for a while
during a wind farm build. He is a mechanic, specializing in
electrical/electronic work on heavy equipment. Got to know him and
asked if he could help me get all the lights working on my 89 Chev short
box. It had been worked over and hot wired in a number of places. Some
underneath work required, and he asked me if I had an old 11 litre water
jug around. I cut and use these to collect oil when I do changes, and
he saw one. I said sure, what do you need it for?
All the best, and may you enjoy many more miles ahead.
