Richard Evans – VAE President 1964

President in 1964 – Dunedin, Florida & Essex Junction, Vermont

Dick Evans was driving “Old Bobtail”, with his wife Helen while he was President. It’s a 1922 Studebaker, four passenger Roadster. The Studebaker is a certified “Whiskey Six” having been confiscated by the US Customs in 1924, from persons unknown, at the Canadian border.

Dick and Helen have sold the Studebaker but continue to drive two splendid cars, both Packards, a 1933 Coupe Roadster (their Florida car) and a 1935 model 1200 Senior Series Sedan. A 1955 Packard hardtop awaits restoration.

The restorations of the Studebaker and the Packard Coupe were “strictly home grown” efforts by Dick and Helen, they doing everything but the plating. As most know, Dick is otherwise known as the “Temperature Guage Guy” specializing in the repair of these elusive devices.

Mark your calendars! The Vermont Antique and Classic Car Meet is August 9-11, 2024!
