  • Model A Parts Found at Studebaker Swap Meet

    Two years ago at the Studebaker swap I found a nice 1928 flat screen Sparton horn. As I was carrying it to my car a guy with a German accent asked if it was for sale. I told him I'd just bought it, but if he was from Germany, I should have sold it to him, as they can't be easy to find over there.

    This year I found a nice 1928 carb and a mint 1930 radiator cap. Must be a few guys that collect Model A's and Studebakers.

    I have a Studebaker story: my senior year of high school, my dad surprised me with a 1939 Studebaker business coupe, and i sure wish i had it now. i joined the military, and he had to sell it to settle a debt, before they moved to another town.

        Not this one, but I was lucky enough to buy a twin venturi at a huge Model A auction about15 years ago for only $25. The throttle was stuck, and no one knew it was a twin. I didn't know either until I got it home and unstuck the throttle.

          I've been looking for a twin. I'd like to try and see how much different they run.

            That's my plan also, once I get it back together.The venturi broke getting it apart, and a new one from A&L cost about $30 years ago. I bought it, but still have the carb all apart.

              So Tom, I'm having trouble figuring out if this "find" makes you a CASO or a CAMO? (I suppose it could be like me, both.)

                Not cheap.........just a prudent shopper. Can't be called cheap when all my money goes to the hobby.
                That is after the government takes the first half in taxes.

                Am thinking of going to the upcoming Swap Meet in Milwaukee, my 1st swap meet.

                Need Advice - need to dress warm due to long outside lines, cash only or do they accept Credit Cards (admission and venders), food, best time to arrive, do they charge for parking, etc?

                This was a nice country town swap meet with a big show and shine.

                The town had a flash flood run thru it in 2016, so all was cancelled that year and 2017.

                This year it is back on but minus the show and shine.

                4 of us from our local club so far are going .

                Taking some Model A and early V8 parts to sell.

                I usually...

                Model A Day in the Amana Colonies in Iowa August 19th
                by Tom Wesenberg
                After I left the Studebaker National Meet in South Bend on May 6th, I needed to kill a day before meeting a couple of old Army buddies in Iowa. So when I stopped at the roadside rest in Iowa on May 7th, I asked the lady "what can I do or see to kill a day". She gave me a small newspaper telling about the Amana Colonies, and mentioned that the Maipole Festival was May 6th and 7th. The 6th...
