View Full Version : Show Yer Stude

09-12-2008, 07:20 PM
I've been attending a cruise night every Thursday night at a shopping center near my home this Summer. My Stude isn't the only one there each week, but I noticed that the Studes attract a lot of attention and elicit a lot of questions about the company and about my car in particular.
I find this interesting since my car is parked along with some beautiful Fords & Chevies.
The one thing I have noticed is that the more I show my Studebaker, the more people are exposed to Studebaker in general.

Exactly right.
I've been encouraging my chapter to take part in our local cruises and slowly more are taking part.
You have to show them to get more people interested and to get the ones hidden away out of hiding.

Yep tomorrow night Chubbys a local Diner that has a Sat. Night car show is having a big end of summer car Show. Since we always bring our Stude they asked me If I might get an Avanti there for the show. Well a fellow member in our Chapter told me of a 63 that is just fantastic. I went and saw it on Wednesday. The owner was going out of town this weekend he called one of our members and asked him to take it to the Show. Also a perfectly restored 55 Speedster, Show stopping 63 Wagonaire,57 Silverhawk ,1958 Transtar, 1955 President,1951 Champion Starlight coupe,1949 Champion(Mabel). So at least 8 Studebakers will be there. This will be the biggest showing that I have pulled off yet. Gosh I can't wait until tomorrow. I will take pictures and post a write up for everyone. Every entry gets a chance at $1,000.00 Cash so it ought to be good
