  • Studebakers on VMCCA tour in Dayton, OH

    We’re on the Heritage Tour with the Vintage Motor Car Club of America (VMCCA) driving my 1948 M5 truck. There are about 50 other cars of various makes and vintages, ranging from a 1927 Velie to a 1959 Ford Fairlane. While there are 13 Fords in the group, Studebaker is 2nd best represented with 8 cars here. Each day, we leave the hotel and drive to one or more locations, have lunch, and drive back to the hotel in the afternoon. Monday we drove 160 miles, a lot in a stiff-sprung M5, only a little less mileage Tuesday and today. In spite of 88 degree temperatures, the M5 radiator has worked fine.

    The cars on tour:
    Ed and Wenda Wenger in their recently acquired 1930 Dictator 8
    Jerry Kurtz in his 1937 Dictator sedan
    Dick and Barbara Fox in their 1928 sedan
    Chester and Nancy Bradfield in a 1936 President sedan
    Ken Blake in a 1941 Commander Skyway
    Jim and Irene Shoul in their 1946 coupe
    Malcolm Stinson with his 1940 President sedan (not officially on the tour, riding with Jerry)

    These tours show that you can drive old cars long distances every day. I especially like the blue 1931 Cord roadster on the tour, even if it’s not a Studebaker.
