Had the pleasure of playing host to long time SDC member Greg Diffen and his wife Kristine today. In tow were their two young and enthusiastic SDC members, daughter Eilish and Warwick (see photo). Greg is native to Australia and Kristine to Canada but they now reside in the U.K. Greg has a number of Studebakers including a ’39 Commander convertible with Swiss built body, a ’37 Dictator Saloon, a rare ‘33 Model 56 St Regis Brougham and some other post war Studebakers plus a few pre-war Packards. He also edits the U.K. newsletter The Studebaker Examiner. A nice visit. By the way Eilish had her first modeling assignment during her visit. See photos under the title “Avanti signs” posted on the forum this day.

Cool. Means more to me than the royal baby hooplaw to see Stude folk fly the banner in the U.K. Nice post.

Greg and his family visited us last Monday. Check him out on EBay where he sells antique toys. GOSTUDE and ANTIQUETOYS1 are what he goes by.

I saw your Avanti post first, but I still think she'd be a very cute granddaughter for you! Bill.

They all stopped by the plant today for a tour and visit. Was a nice stop, but I had no idea they were coming.
