As Gord Richmond stated in a previous post, we traveled first to the Stan Reynolds Museum in Westakwin, and then to the Smithson International Truck Museum in Rimby, Alberta.

Some pics of the event:

This sounds like a plan - Craig out of curiosity are you the same fella I met years ago from Silver Springs ? You have the '50 4 door ? I'm the guy that used to live in Scenic Acres. Currently live in Toronto but am moving back out to Calgary in the spring - and of course am bringing the Stude back ;)

It wouldn't have been me. I own mostly 1964-66 Stude cars and a '63 Diesel 2 ton truck. I lived in Bowness until 1996; then I moved to Willow Park, and have been here ever since. My most 'visible' driver-Stude is a turqouise 1965 Commander 4 door sedan.
