      Ditto all of that George! I too used to be a OEC Member and go every year, entered a car and had lots of fun tire kicking and chatting with people from all over the West Coast! [^]

      We even take the 1300 mile Trek down there from here sometimes, but unfortunately it does not look good for this year.

      Maybe I'll see Doug Hughes, Bill Oliver, Rubin Polanco, Warren Webb, John Metzker and others down there next year!

        Another Old OEC member checking in. wish I could be there, but it's to far for me. Miss all of you guys. Hope to see some of you in Lancaster. Does anybody remember when The Orange Empire Chapter was Originally founded? According to the web site it seems to be later then I remember. Sure miss all of you.

          Since it's old OEC member week, I'm one too. One of the better chapters I've known. LaPalma's a great meet. Not in the cards for me this year tho.

          Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

          1957 Transtar 1/2ton
          1960 Larkvertible V8
          1958 Provincial wagon
          1953 Commander coupe
          1957 President two door

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Yes, I am planning on attending, and driving the wagon. May even have a new Stude owner tagging along, co-worker is buying a family owned red 60 Hawk. Just about 30-40 miles from Riverside.

              I was there with my 49 truck two years ago, but missed last year, but going to try to get there in my GT this year.

                I too always look forward to the La Palma meet!! Sorry you cant make it this year, Rich, but I'll try & hold down the fort for ya!
                I do beleive the orange empire chapter was formed in 1969. If thats correct than next years meet should be their 40th anniversary! I have a glass at my "storage house" that has the 20th anniversary etched in it with the year, but its 65 miles from me right now.
                Ross, i do believe your wife has seen my wife on the road while she was driving the provincial & mine in the 60 red lark. Hope to see y'all there!
