You should edit (change) this posts title, "Batsto (South) Jersey Car Show Alert". You'll catch more eyes I think. It IS a Great show in a laid back low key setting. EZ to get to and a Beautiful Ride on nice country roads. ••••. If we could form up those who will be entering, perhaps we could meet up pre-show at the nearby Pleasant Mills Church and drive in and park together. It would be fun. IF you've Never seen Batsto, you need to visit. This is an under appreciated gem of a time capsule Villiage. It's Non commercial and sparsely visited. Great photo opportunities. ••••. So who's going and how does the idea of a mini caravan in sound?

Great suggestion! Done! Will be there with our Wagonaire! Glad to meet Studebaker folks at the Pleasant Mills Church. Keep us posted! Would be great having a nice group of Studebakers showing up.

What is the meet time at the Church?
For folks coming south bound on the Garden State Parkway, exit at New Gretna exit #52. At end of ramp turn left, follow to US 9 , turn right on US 9, drive through the town of New Gretna. There will be a small Citgo gas station on right, turn right here onto County route 542. Batsto Village is on route 542, drive 12.7 miles, Batsto will be on the right side.

8:30 at the Church sounds like a good setup. Last year at the show there was a dark blue '50 or '51 but no other Studebakers. Only VERY important thing with these south jersey shows is NEVER park near the faux cop car that plays the Adam 12 "see the man" radio calls over and over and over on a tape loop for hours on end. Now of course it Will rain that day.

Coming south from the Philly side take rt 206 south. After Atsion you'll see a sign Batsto, with a side road on the left. That goes there. BTW this Is a pretty big general show, no rinkydink thing in a parking lot. It's on grass, be prepared for Pollen.

There was a good flea market there and a few of us picked up some decorations for their homes and man caves , Laura and I gave away several Turning Wheels and Keystone keynotes magazines , One gentleman said he had a 53 or 54 coupe as a company car back in the day , So I went thru the magazines we had and found the same car he had on a cover , I gave it to him and he was very happy , We may have to do it again, Ed
