    The question of enforcement of the fire extinguisher guidelines at the International Meet this year has been raised by a number of Studebaker owners.

    This guideline will be enforced at the August 29-31, September 1, 2018 International Meet inTacoma, Washington. The text of this guideline follows below. This guideline applies to both Display and Judged vehicles at the meet this year and following years. This guideline is also applicable to ALL zone or regional meets where display or judging of cars is being done.

    “Failure to have an approved Fire Extinguisher will disqualify a Club member to display or enter their car into SDC judging at an official SDC sanctioned meet or show.

    The fire extinguisher must be UL listed or equivalent and fully charged. The minimum for all vehicles is a ULtype 1-A:5-B:C. For fire extinguishers without a gauge; insure that thenozzle is not obstructed and the safety seal is intact. The extinguisher need not be permanently mounted, but must be clearly visible and readily available.

    When the car is on display, the fire extinguisher should be on the ground near the left front wheel. For Drive-through judging, the fire extinguisher may beon the front seat or floor, but readily visible and available.“
