Can we get a confusion of weasels to MVPA in South Bend?

Post by signsup » Fri May 10, 2019 5:06 pm

MVPA International convention in South Bend, IN in 2021. That gives everyone two full years to get their weasel projects and restorations in running order so we can have a large gathering at the home of where they were built, 75 years ago. Don't have to float or swim, but we are thinking about providing a location to make that happen as well.
But a confusion of weasels in South Bend in two years sounds like something I'd like to see happen.

Anyone else on board? Get it? on board? I crack myself up . . .

Sweet. I may actually have a second M29C by then and may bring them both. One motor pool class and one anything goes class.

I purchased my M29 last month and stopped by South Bend and the Studebaker Museum with it in tow. Would like to take part.

Pasture Pilot, I stopped in South Bend and did the same when I pick up my t24 quite a few years ago. The people at the museum got rather excited when they saw it in their security cameras and they had to find out whose it was 😃

Sorry for the SLOW response...I simply don't have as much time to look at forums as I would like.

As noted, the 2021 MVPA Convention will be in South Bend to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of AM General, and the 160th Anniversary of Studebaker delivering goods to the US government.

The dates of the convention are August 11-14, and I can assure you we'd like to see an abundance of Weasels and other Studebakers (and AM General, and a host of other makes) at the convention.

Best wishes,

I learned something today. A group of weasels is called a "confusion." Who knew?

The terms gang and pack are also approved. I like pack. "Pack-o-weasels."

Talking about weasels makes one want to talk about ferrets. A group of ferrets is called a "business", modified from the old term "busyness." I guess that meant busy, which the furry critters always are. The steel ferrets you read about on the Armor forum are not so busy but their owners are, maintaining and fixing them.

Yeah. Next I am going to organize all my Military Vehicle Magazines by date.

Might rotate the valve stems on the MB.
