And here are the more conventional Studebakers we had on display at the fair by invitation, including the People's Choice "Gus Mater" brought by Anne and David Goodman.

I was very impressed with the reception we received from both the event organizers and the crowd at the fair. At the races they spoke of John M Studebaker with great reverence and told his story. Placerville regards him as a "Favorite Son" that made good and is proud of the connection between the town and Studebaker.

I would submit that this is the biggest event saluting Studebakers anywhere that is not put on by either SDC or the Studebaker Museum.

Be sure to check out the video I posted in another thread.
