WHAT'S GOING ON

Note From Peter Rodrigues:

  • Tour Master Central Oklahoma Chapter

    of the Studebaker Drivers Club

     

    It now appears that there will be more and more limits placed on our ability to gather for Studebaker Club activities. We need to be prudent about be imposing our own “social gathering” limits as we learn to deal with the Coronavirus. It is a disappointment to the many of us that have been looking forward to an active season of opportunities to meet and to share our Studebaker driving experiences, but by now we realize the seriousness od this pandemic.

     

    One social interaction we can develop is using our computers to visit our Central Oklahoma Studebaker Drivers Club web-site:  https://www.studebaker-ok.com/,

     

    And go to Facebook for our Central Oklahoma Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club page:

    https://www.facebook.com/pg/Central-Oklahoma-Chapter-of-the-Studebaker-Drivers-Club-1105247522899566/posts/?ref=page_internal

     

    Please be certain to contact club members that you know are not computer users. This will update them on club events and will also allow us to be in a position to help members that might be in need. 

     

    Together we will continue to be" Oklahoma Strong".

     

Note: Cancellation of Carseum Visit:

This is a copy of the message sent to Tom Douglass and his Carseum in Edmond.

 

Tom Douglass.

Due to Local, State, and National concerns about the effects of gatherings on the rate of spread of the Coronavirus, we are recommending postponing our planned March 28, 2020 Studebaker Club “Shop Tour” – at your Carseum in Edmond, Oklahoma. We plan on a re-scheduling at an appropriate date in what we hope will be the near future. Let us continue to be diligent about our efforts, and let us continue to be aware of the health needs of our friends and Studebaker Club members.

President Mel McGee's Message:

 

As we’ve by now become painfully aware, the coronavirus of the flu is going to make quite an impact on all and we’re going to learn to observe, adjust, apply all necessary precautions and, hopefully, in a few months look back on a successfully met and vanquished foe.

For now, please pay close attention to the plethora of information available to the club in countering this invasion a curbing of our activities.  I know it is an irritation to find that a club meeting, a favorite car show or other public activity has been cancelled or postponed due to this vile invasion.  But we will enjoy more tours and shop visits in the coming year(s) after “..this, too, has passed.”

I again emphasize, for now, be aware of all the agencies working to help us through this quagmire; check with your OG&E, your ONG, OKC Utilities(if in the OKC area), etc.  Please look for help if needed.

We can do this!

Mel McGee

Comeback of Coffee and Cars on the North Side

Sutherland Prepares For Branson

  Don Sutherland, editor of the COCSDC newsletter, drove The Dutch Girl down to the well-equipped shop of Tour Master Peter Rodrigues and got a good check-up and received a complete lubrication of everything  for which Peter could find a zerk.  Pictured here, she gets another quart of oil,  more brake fluid, and a good cleaning of the spark plugs with Don's pocket knife. 

   On a beautiful Saturday 6 June morning a multi-club event occurred when our Central Oklahoma Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club joined the Heartland Ts, the Sooner As the Horseless Carriage Club, The Vintage Chevrolet Club, The MG Club and the Triumph Club as we gathered with a few hundred others for Cars and Coffee at their new location, 13230 Pawnee Drive, Oklahoma City.

   As only about 500 parking places were available and 1000 cars showed up some of us waited for a second shift and found space as many who had arrived at 0700 or earlier were leaving.  That count might be off a little but not far off as there was definitely a bunch or maybe a bunch and a half of cars and twice that many people.  I was a great gathering and, for many of us, the first such event in which we've joined this year.

   After leaving the Cars & Coffee area we proceeded to Don Sables' place on Wilshire where Mr. Sables was cooking up another of his famous lunches, serving the thickest, most delicious 'burgers in the land.

   After viewing the cars gathered there as well as the many interesting projects in the Sables' shop, many then joined a caravan driving around Brictown and Lake Overholser.  Wonderful Day.
