Chester and Nancy Bradfield hosted a joint meet of the Greater Virginia SDC Chapter and the Valley Cruizers Car Club at their lovely home in Bridgewater, VA. There were attendees from Denmark, Switzerland, New Zealand, Washington (state), Idaho, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia that I was aware of. With the 5" of rain recorded since Thursday night and threatening skies this morning, many folks elected to drive Brand X's.

However, the weather cleared up and there were many nice cars to be seen (as well as my ratty looking Studebaker buggy). Of particular interest is the 1931 bread truck from Washington (non Stude) as well as the Packard Hawk. I have posted a link below.

Randy,

Just to prove how talented I am, I added a motion shot of the Packard Hawk leaving at the end of the album. He came out from behind the bus that brought folks from the local retirement community and punched it (notice the front end roll) and was too quick for my camera to catch!

That's a nice piano box buggy you have there Guido. I know of several Amish, and a couple non-Amish, people who would do a fine job on it if you like. Is it really a Studebaker?

You know, they offered a similar buggy to this in the late 1890's with what they called a 'stormfront' option. Sort of a nicer looking version of what the Amish drive today. Studebaker's advertisement showed a rig on a residential street with lightning striking in the background. The horse was rearing, the driver (looking smugly confident) was reaching forward to close the windshield and the passenger (a lovely lady of course) looked concerned.

If you want to find it a home someday, drop me a line.

Lotsa Larks!

Great shots "G" I should really take the time to learn to post.
I believe in the Bakersfild meet photo's titled as Chesters 007.I do believe he purchased the green 53 Commander H/T from me.His name was Chester & he lived in W/Virginia.If you know him ask if he purchased the car in Ontario Canada from Kevin,he may remember the Canada part.
Another one I regret selling but I don't have the room or a cooperative wife,as far as my hobby goes.It was a great car 7 a fine

The green '53 is currently owned by Pat Monroe, but I do not know its heritage prior to that. Though I owned Studebakers in the '70's and early '80's I was out of the hobby for about 20 years collecting tractors and farm equipment, so I lost contact with many Stude owners. I doubt that I will see Pat prior to our Christmas gathering, but I will put out an inquiry to see if I can get some additional information.

Clunk,

It was advertised at the sale as a Studebaker, but I suspect that is due to it having the Stude name on the two step plates. I do not see a tag on the seat or the back of the box and have not pulled a wheel to see if the axles are embossed. Once you get settled in Charlotte and ever get up this way let me know and you can take a look at it.

Pat Monroe did buy the car in Ontario so I would certainly think it was your former car. The interior is done in green vinyl, not authentic, but VERY nice.
