These are only a few examples! I'm disappointed that I don't have more Stude and other orphan pics to share from past shows, but I'm usually too busy to spend the time I'd like taking pics.

Studebakers are always well represented, appreciated, and score well at our show.

We usually have around 250 cars on site.

Breakfast includes plenty of hot coffee, cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, etc.

Lunch consists of cold drinks, great burgers, some BBQ, 'n such, with trimmings... all served inside of the high school commons area, in air conditioned comfort.

This also happens to be where the awards are given out, while the show field is patrolled by the local police department:

All proceeds from the show go to scholarships for deserving Perkins High School students.

All proceeds from food sales go to support senior class functions, including, but not limited to alcohol-free alternatives for celebrating prom night, etc.

Our 2011 50/50 POT was $2200!

AND... We strive to have you, your car, and your award on your way home by 2 PM, because we understand how important Saturdays are to you, and yours!

We'd LOVE to see you at our show this year!:

This particular Studebaker Kiss Cam shot is really a special thing, given how close Carl (WE) came to losing Betty not so long ago!

I think it is time for you and your Champion to visit us in Oklahoma, Bob! (Consider this an official invite.) <G>

Betty was suppose to go to a family reunion that day but she said she would rather go to Perkins. We will stop by the house from Wisconsin and pick up the 48 and come on down.

We look forward to seeing you and Betty at our show, Carl.

You are each very special, very lucky folks!

Only each of you have each other.

The combination of the two of you is no less than awesome.

And, we are lucky to know each, and both, of you!

You are still number one on my list, Dave. Just gotta get the OD situation fixed. That's a long trip at 45 mph.

Wow, an excellent 1958 Golden Hawk in red & white and still with 14 inch wheels - both rare.
"STUDI" is a "different" way to abreviate Studebaker.
I think that fender skirts ruin the lines of that Valiant.
That Mercury is a nicely done chop/custom.
I took a Gremlin in on trade on my 1972 Plymouth Satellite Sebring. In a men's room at work, I overheard two guys talking about needing a first car for their daughter. I sold the Gremlin to the one that needed the car.

Just a reminder... Perkins Car show tomorrow!

Looks like the Chamber of Commerce took control of the weather, should be drop-dead gorgeous day for a car show!

Sadly, Carl and Betty had a conflict, but if you come, we'll try to treat you right!

I was recently told that Studes run better in UNDER drive, Bob. <G>

Maybe next year!

Very nice post.

Thank you.

Dean.
Glad you enjoyed it, Dean.

What might have started out being about cars, if we are lucky, evolves into being about folks, eh?

I appreciate all of the neat cars I have had the pleasure of admiring over the years spent in the hobby, but that appreciation is, by far, shadowed by the pleasure/honor experienced through being exposed to/getting to know some really neat folks!

The folks make the cars possible, the cars make meeting the folks possible.

All in all, a pretty neat deal!

Yeah, under-drive. I heard that, too.

exactly why i'm still here after a really bad year! ;) i am not giving up - and hope to be able to have my next Stude and my health back to "good enough", that i can get out to our local club events soon, and farther away thereafter!

i miss the "folks" as much as i miss my Studebaker! :)

Kerry, go to shows/meets, with, or without a Stude. The folks will be there for ya!

Dave, yes, you are right! my only car right now is a "beater" 89 Reatta, and the club meetings are around an hour and a half away for the rest of the season. not sure the car or i can go that far right now.

but instead of "do, or do not" - i have to start to "try"... a little harder! ;)

thanks!

Pleased to comment at the Studebaker only swap in Wisconsin Betty was moving around quite nicely without the aid of a walker.

Yep, she is a remarkable person. The docs advised he she would not be able to do certain things, especially in her desired time line. She proved them wrong.

AND... I suspect, without a doubt, that Carl's influence had a great deal to do with her recovery.

The title of this thread hit home with me. My wife and I have found we do meet the nicest people when we are driving our Studebaker. We had shirts made. Problem is ,we didn't explain it quite right. some think we refer to ourselves,which is not what we attended.

BobGlasscock

Anybody who doesn't understand that shirt correctly doesn't own a Studebaker, Randy. Perfectly clear. And you need to sell them.

We ordered our shirts from vista print. They wouldn't give a price break for a bunch ,so it would be cheaper to order your own. You design a shirt and they print it. I wasn't trying to high jack the thread, I did enjoy the cars, message, and story of everyone above and wish them well. Just the heading hit home with us!
