  • 'Studebaker Day' at 'The Villages' - 2/16/2008

    Saturday, February 16, 2008
    2:00pm (escort in for Studebakers to be pre-parked)
    Event runs from 3:00pm to 7:30pm
    "Cruise 'parade' runs at 7:30pm

    'The Villages' entertainment department have it all set up for the Studebaker folks.
    Early entrance and pre-parking on the square.[]

    The NCFSDC chapter will be in attendance, and all and any other Studebaker owners, or just Stude people are invited to this [u]free</u> car show and parade/cruise.

    There are usually 200 to 300 quality cars and trucks in attendance, so this is a real fun event.
    Live music and dancing. Several restaurants right on premisis.
    Happy hour from 5-7pm.

    The parade is a real neat event. I have seen 5,000+ people lining the sidewalks to watch the cars cruise by.
    It's a short parade, so overheating shouldn't be an issue.

    The Studebakers are all parked in a nice row for your viewing pleasure.



    Here's a link or three from past "Studebaker Day" at 'The Villages'.

    There is a Holiday Inn Express and a Quality Inn & Suites within walking distance (a few long blocks)..
    Better check quick for availability. as it is Speedweek.
    Hope to see you there!

                        [b][navy]Here's another teaser for the show Saturday in Lady Lake, Florida...

                        I submitted a short historical story to the local newspaper to promote Studebaker's participating in this show...
                        The assignment editor contacted me and had a reporter call me to do a telephone interview. We went over the content of the short blurb I submitted, and she started asking me a lot of other Studebaker related questions. Am interested to read the article, because she was genuinely curious about what in the heck a Studebaker was.....
                        Then, a while later, the television station contacted me about their coverage of the car show and the Studebaker's coming to the festivities.. He was mostly interested in what local resident's would be coming, so I whipped open my SDC Membership CD-ROM and did a quick PDF search while we chatted on the phone. He was amazed that I could ratlle off individual members, their Studebakers, and even the wive's names.. I thought nothing of it, but he thought it was pretty cool. Kudo's to the SDC for putting that feature out there for us to use.
                        Anyways... I invited the TV guys to come by and interview any and all of the Studebaker folk's in attendance. Maybe I'll hook the guy into riding with me in the parade... We'll see...
                        Hope to see some of you there. The weather forecast is awesome.
