This past Saturday, the Delmarva Peninsula Chapter sponsored an all make, all year show at the Dover Nascar track. The purposes were to get the Studebaker name better known in this area and to raise some money for the chapter. All together we had 230 cars including 14 Studebakers. This is my first time at posting pix, hope these come through.

Here are a couple of views of the Studes on display:

Some other interesting iron showed up as well, including a somewhat over the top '40 LaSalle, a Divco milk truck, and a '39 Chevy ratmobile ??:

Kruse did an auction at the same time as the show and some of us acted as car jockeys for Kruse, which was kind of fun. All in all it was a great time but a very long day. We think we met both our objectives...

Great pictures thank you for posting. Do you have a close up of the blue 1960(?) Hawk?

Gary,

Here's the photo. It's actually a '59 Silver Hawk, which is owned by one of our female members. It's powered by a Mopar 318. I'm not sure if this originally was a 6 or V-8.
