Hello all, First time here. I have had a 48 M-5 modified for several years now . I have never been to a Studebaker meet before and was wondering how a modified Stude would be accepted?.I have just recently joined SDC for the first time and saw a national meet in South Bend next June. Just wondering how it would be with a modified? Thanks, Dennis

SDC welcomes modified Studebakers. There is even a separate class for modifieds. The SDC magazine, Turning Wheels, devotes a section to modifieds every month. I am sure the folks attending South Bend (or any SDC meet)would love to see your truck.

The SDC calls "modified" Studebakers with Studebaker engines "CUSTOMS". It calls "modified" Studebakers with non-Studebaker engines "MODIFIEDS". Generally, they are the two biggest classes at a national meet. At Omaha, I believe there were about 40 cars in each of these classes (out of about 350 total cars being judged). In addition to the judged Customs and Modifieds, there were many more in "display only" status. We are very fortunate to have modified cars accepted and encouraged by the SDC...not many marque clubs do.
