  • Studebaker: Featured Class Hemmings NY Meet 2017

    Hemmings announced that Studebaker will be one of the featured classes this year at their NY Concours D'Elegance. I'll try to post the link. You have to apply to be included on the show field....so APPLY.

    Think Studebaker and it’s fair, to some degree, to associate the South Bend automaker with its line of economy cars from the mid-Fifties to the last one that rolled off the line (in Canada) in 1966; however, there was far more to the independent marque. Studebakers were originally designed for the upscale market, spearheaded, for instance, by the President line that has since become recognized as Full Classics by the CCCA (technically the 1928-’33 examples). Their family of automobiles included sports cars, performance cars and an array of coupes and sedans aimed at the middle class, not forgetting their line of trucks that catered to the working men and women who built America. It’s a heritage that’s not lost on us at Hemmings, and therefore we’re celebrating the Studebaker lineage in a class unto their own.

    That's Matthew Wendt's beautiful 1964 Hawk.

    It was the subject of a two-part Restoration Profile in Hemmings Classic Car. Fortunately, Matt lives close enough to Hemmings HQ that they can run out and photograph it fairly easily. BP

      That looks like it could be an interesting show , only one Great Lake from me so just maybe I'll see if they will let my freshly done Wagonaire in since there isn't any big shows on my list next year !

        I showed my Speedster at one of the first Hemmings Concours back when it was in Vermont. I don't have the details on this years show, but this is not just a day show, but a weekend event with a tour, an open show on Saturday and the by invite only big show Sunday. They have a dinner Sat night and good speaker. I've put in my request to show my Speedster again in 2017.

            I will be there as well. I am less than 5 miles from the venue. There is also a really nice auto museum on that site. LOTS of hotels, a great town for walking and Eating. This is Saratoga Springs! home of the horse race track. Friday night There is Dirt roundy round car racing near by. There is so much more nearby. I have lived here for most of my 54 years.
            If you have any questions ask me. Rich La Torre- PM me here. I check in at least once a week here. Go To This Meet!

                AD56GH it can't hurt to apply. They want Studebakers at a big show...how nice! Send in the photos and see what happens. Sounds like a mini zone meet for us Stude folks.

                  This venue is well worth the drive....no matter how far, Saratoga Springs is one of the prettiest towns anywhere.
                  They usually do a car tour and boat cruise on Lake George as well. We've attended several shows here and will make the drive again.

                    I think they would love it. The Sunday show is for original or restored cars as they are looking for cars done like they were delivered from the dealer. Send a note to the Concours guys and give them a little history of the car and mention that you just got your Sr Tab at Hershey. Send a couple nice pix. They will let you know.
