      I owned my first Studebaker at that same time. A 1955 Commander. Where in California did you live at that time?
      I still have a younger brother living in Santa Maria, just up the road from you. Do you know Dan Sallia?

            Great video! Thank you for sharing this, some gorgeous Studebakers!
            Hello Ed, thought I saw a Studebaker truck hauling some big green pods around Santa Maria!
            Sorry it was Santa Mira!

                  Those are some REALLY GREAT Memories there Alex!

                  A few things I can add. Not sure about that last Segment being at the Madonna Inn San Louis Obispo though, some of our North/South Calif. joint SDC or Studebaker Owners Club of America Inc. Meets were. It looks to me like one of our Meets in Solvang.

                  1. At 3:23 to 3:28 that must be the founder of the SOCA, Paul Gunder's Black over Red, '53 Commander Starliner with the Wire Wheels.

                  2. At 6:26 the skinny, bushy haired Guy with a Judging Clipboard next to the Lady in Red, MAY be Ed Reynolds, not sure about that.

                  3. At 9:37 we have Chuck Potter's restored '63 Lark Wagonaire in Blue Mist with a Black Vinyl Sliding Roof and on the sides of it, it was a R1 4 Speed, it has '64 R1 Emblems on the Fenders.

                  4. At 10:16 is one of many shots of Bill Cannon's '31 President 8, 4 Seasons Roadster, Yellow & Brown, it now lives up here in the Northwest with Odd & Gretta Justad.

                  5. At 10:23 - 10:26 I think we have myself behind the Owner of a '55 Speedster checking out the Carb. or something. I have on a Blue Shirt, Dark Blue sweater and Light colored Pants.

                  6. Here at 10:50 to 10:51 really QUICK, is my Light green '63 Champ 1/2 Ton 8E7 with the homemade Camper Shell that I do not remember even bringing there!

                  7. At 11:27 to 11:30 we have the proof I did bring the Truck that year, it's the Mother of my 3 Sons Sharon, in the Camper with I believe Alma Magdaleno.

                  8. And lastly at 11.31-11:33 is Alma Magdaleno and Sharon Gahlbeck again, 2 of the 3 Ladies there.

                    I lived in Los Angeles at that time. Moved to Camarillo in 72. I don't think I ever met Dan.

                        Alex,
                        Good to hear from you!

                        One of my fondest Stude memories is driving from San Francisco to your house and staying for the night (delicious BBQ!) then leaving the following morning for Phoenix and the Zone meet.

                        Here's one of the rare times I was in front of you...



                        What I generally needed to do to keep up with you...



                        Hammer down. Headed East on Eye One Oh...





                        Rest stop...



                        It was an excellent Zone Meet. I jammed home on Sunday. Straight through from Phoenix to Scotts Valley, CA in 12 hours (730 miles).

                            Hi Rich, I thought you would know a lot of the cars and people. Yes, in looking again I see the last meet was at Solvang. And that was you looking at the 55. I'm working on some more videos of other meets. If they run over 15 minutes should I make to shorter videos? What does everyone think?

                              Keep them the length they are. They are great to look back on!!

                              Now I just wonder why J.L. Jacobson suddenly stopped posting slide shows from the 1960's: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...-of-South-Bend
