Sad there are very few stock vehicles seen anymore.
Very enjoyable, thanks for the post.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain !
Back to the fifties is a really big show that is sponsored by the Minnesota Hot Rod association. Almost nothing stock appears at that show.

True, most of the cars are customs or hot rods but there are a few that are stock, including Studebakers. Every year I walk a lot of miles taking pictures of every Studebaker I can find at the show. The Minnesota State Fairgrounds are immense (320 acres) and there are cars in every nook and cranny. 12,000 to 13,000 cars are registered each year but they don't all make it. If you want to go every day, it's cheaper to "register" a car to get two 3-day passes than it is to pay for admission at the gate. I do know some people that go that route. I'd be willing to bet that at least 10,000 actually show up. Add food, vendors, and spectators and there's not much bigger a car show can be. The North Star Chapter always has a few good cars there and you can count on members from Duluth, Wisconsin, the Dakotas and Iowa as well. I've even seen Studes from Canada there.
Here are the Studebakers I've managed to photograph:
Bob, I enjoyed the pictures very much. Thanks for posting them.
Thanks Bob for wearing off so much shoe leather getting these great pics for us!
