Appears to be processed bauxite. Is it license plate size?

Very cool! San Leandro is in the San Francisco Bay Area near Oakland. I lived there in the mid 70's. Does your friend have any more history on this club?

We would drill the holes on the top to "swing a plaque". He wants me to put it on ebay for him, $20 starting bid, no reserve, should be up Fri. evening. Here's one I had back in the 60's

Yes, thanks Bob. I was thinking of seeing if would made sense to make a reproduction of a few of those plaques. I think they could be made for around $25. If not, maybe the one we have could be restored and donated to the museum if they wanted it. The SDC pre-history you posted is pretty cool.

If you have some remade, have them read East Bay Studees. "East Bay Studies" sounds like a high school study group.[:I]

After I call South Bend, my friend Sal has decided to donate it to the Studebaker museum for display with the SDC web page write up.

I looked into it, $100 setup charge amd cost of about $25 each, but what would they say ? Too many different cars that folks would want pictured.

Do it like this one, a 53-54 K body. Perhaps the most popular Studes ever built. But, make sure it says STUDES and not STUDIES. GO FOR IT!!! I'd buy a few for our cars. As would most everyone on here, I think. We even have a 54 coupe that it go great on. (well, a 56 Power Hawk with 54 'stuff' on it) BUT, instead of a certain city's name, have it just say STUDEBAKER. Or something of the like.
