  • Show Yer Stude California Style

    quote:Yep tomorrow night Chubbys a local Diner that has a Sat. Night car show is having a big end of summer car Show. Since we always bring our Stude they asked me If I might get an Avanti there for the show. Well a fellow member in our Chapter told me of a 63 that is just fantastic. I went and saw it on Wednesday. The owner was going out of town this weekend he called one of our members and asked him to take it to the Show. Also a perfectly restored 55 Speedster, Show stopping 63 Wagonaire,57 Silverhawk ,1958 Transtar, 1955 President,1951 Champion Starlight coupe,1949 Champion(Mabel). So at least 8 Studebakers will be there. This will be the biggest showing that I have pulled off yet. Gosh I can't wait until tomorrow. I will take pictures and post a write up for everyone. Every entry gets a chance at $1,000.00 Cash so it ought to be good
    Well we went to Chubby's I got there early had the owner save a row for me. Well you know there are yahoo's all over they had taken my row so he had another for me. Well we ended up with 10 Studebakers there at the Car show. There were 126 cars total there so Studebaker was well represented. People were so impressed they said they hadn't seen that many Studebakers ever together. Fantastic night. They had lots of places in this thing and one Studebaker Placed. Ya gotta love it.

    Whao! Nice turnout! Cool deal for Craig's Avanti.

    Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

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