Threatened stormy conditions did not materialize last evening at Hamilton's Pier 4 Park, so Stude Night went ahead and we did indeed beat the dozen from last Saturday at Paris; sixteen Studebakers, from a '34 Commander coupe to a '66 Commander 2dr road racer, turned out (Hm, oldest and newest both Commanders.) Interestingly only a few Studes were at both shows; the local Stude population is quite a healthy one. Here's a P'bucket album link. Wish the individual pix would still post...


The vehicles:

34 Commander (also at Paris)
47 M5
50 Champion (Hamilton-built)
51 Champion Starlight rod (also at Paris)
53 Champion Starlight (the late Carl Held's project, now completed and on the road--stock and beautiful)
56 Golden Hawk
62 Lark (Hamilton-built, also at Paris)
63 Lark Daytona convertible (also at Paris)
63 GT Hawk
63 GT Hawk (the Alley Cat, Hamilton-built)
63 Avanti
63 Avanti R2
64 Daytona HT (Hamilton-built)
64 GT Hawk
64 Avanti
66 Commander road racer (recently featured in an article in TW)

Cheers all

...Thanks to a gent from Arizona on another part of the forum, here are three pix from last night at Pier 4, uploaded to postimage.org; not actually sure how I re-access them later, but for individual instant posts of new-sighting Studes, it looks like it'll work well...

Attn Bob Peterson. The green 53 Champion is the car you sold to the late Carl Held. As you can see restoration is now complete and the car is gracing the local scene. Just thought you would like to know the dream was completed by someone else.
