Where was that taken, Gary? Is that Marvin Snider's '52 from Indianapolis (Greenwood, actually) Indiana? I ask because the car right next to it appears to be Steve Jones' '55 from our Indy Chapter as well....but maybe not. BP

This was taken at the Iowa International.

That could well be both Marvin and Steve's cars, Gary; I believe they both attended Iowa 2009. I'm going to see Marvin tomorrow anyway, so I'll ask him! BP

Update to yesterday's speculation. I spent most of the day today with Marvin Snider, riding over to Greensburg for the "Studebaker History Day" at Decatur North High School, discussed in another thread.

The 1952 Commander sedan pictured above indeed was Marvin's car when the picture was taken at the 2009 SDC International Meet in Cedar Rapids. That is also Indy Chapter SDCer Steve Jones' '55 next to it.

Marvin sold that '52 on e-bay about a year ago. He still has a very nice 1962 full dash / 4-speed Hawk, and the 1955 President we drove today. Marvin paused for this picture when we got back from today's Decatur/Greensburg adventure:

(Thanks for the ride over, Marvin.) BP
