haha... that's just for the saturday night dinner & music show. Lou Christie and Brooklyn Bridge cost a bit to fly in, I guess! ;)

there's three parts to the car show. The car show part is only $10 for the day...

If you just want to attend the car show, it's $10, not $120. ;)

There should be a large selection from the Ontario, Hamilton and Avanti Chapters celebrating 100 years of Studebaker in Canada....

Canadian, I would expect. But then again, since both dollars are for all intents and purposes at par...:)

Hey guys, it is for CHARITY after all. Minimum $10.00 isn't so bad. Splurge for the other events and I bet you'll end up with a receipt for tax purposes.

haha... yes, it's all for charity. $10 isn't anything considering the magnitude of this show...

With that said, I can't afford the dinner/music on Saturday night. :) But, I'm hitting the drive-in movie on Friday night and going early on Saturday for the car show. Maybe I'll hide in the bushes to get in on the Saturday eve entertainment. :)

As Bill says, the turnout of Studes from the two Ontario-based chapters should be very good. $10 for a car show of this size (and the estate location is spectacular too) is really pretty modest. I'll be there with my '62 all going well and am helping out with a support display of Stude models and memorabilia on the Saturday. Looking forward to it!

Yep, that's the one. Steve Plunkett is the gentleman's name. Last year Barry Meguiar turned up at the Fleetwood Cruise and did a brief segment for "Car Crazy"; I have heard he was really wowed by the event and will probably return for a "sequel"...hope so, as this year that would mean major exposure for our favourite make of car!

From previous years, if you qualify for the show [pre-1985 or the feature model], you just drive right into the show grounds...

http://www.studebakerdriversclub.org/ev_ON.asp

Gives more information. It says that pre-registration is encouraged but not required. Wouldn't hurt to give them an e-mail, I guess... I bet it's merely to get a number and ensure that enough space is aloted so all the Studes can be showcased together?!

If you want to get with the main group of Studebakers you'll need to get ahold of the Hamilton Chapter's pres. and book your spot . If you don't you still will be able to get into the show grounds but you'll be parked in the general area and not with the Studebakers . I think they have room for around 50 Studebakers in their spot ( 1st registered 1st served )but you "have " to register with the Hamilton club. You can find the email on the Hamilton website.

This is a VERY VERY VERY NICE venue. I AM GOING.

I have been there before. Steve's Cadillac collection is incredible.

Unfortunately, as you can see, the date is a little close to International Meet for some Studebaker owners.

However, for me, it is much closer and as I said, it is very very very nice.

Thanks for the answers guys. I sent off an email, and will hopefully hear back.
For anyone considering going, i just want to add, that it is an incredeble venue, was there a few years ago for an ACD club show. The place is amazing, and I hear it's even better now.

Yes... he has since built a mega-million dollar building/salon to showcase his 'best of' and 'one of' cadillacs. [:0]

Did you see Steve's main collection at the ACD club show? I'm pretty sure they're stored underground below his house? I watched the Car Crazy episode from last year's show which was on the country cruize-in website which showed them going through a tunnel to see the collection but I'm not quite sure where it is. I think there must be 50+ cars in there...
