  • Reedsville PA. 2008 swap meet next week

    Just wanted to post a reminder that the Reedsville all Studebaker swap meet will be held on Nov 7th through Nov 9 at the Mifflin County youth park in Reedsville PA which is 3 miles North of Lewistown PA.
    I have been going to this swap meet since the early 80's and have always enjoyed the scenic drive, the beauty of the central PA area and the great people that show up at this meet. (most of it is indoors BTW)
    Max Corkins usually hosts an open house Friday evenings at his restoration shop in Lewistown (sometimes with his band playing) Good accomodations are generally easy to find, there is great food available (even Amish style nearby) and if you want more active nightlife State College is only about 30 minute drive. THis is a fun meet and I hope to meet many of you Studebaker fans there.

    Are there directions to his shop?
    Is this open to the general public or is it by invitation only
    ?

      It's by invitation... and by hearing about it, you're invited!!

      Seriously, Max is a great guy! I really love his shop- a cluttery, old-school building with tons of Stude stuff and plenty of projects in various stages to check out. It's a must- just a little tricky to find[B)] I'm sure somebody will post the actual address before long.

        Its not very hard to find , at least from the Quality Hotel but what is kind of hard is finding your way back ! Those one way streets there going at all sorts of angles can sure screw you up at night . I think it took me about 5 years before I got the hang of it .
        I remember the 1st time I left there we were lost for hours...never did figure out were we ended up

          Max usually has maps showing the route to his shop available in the room with the snack bar. The strange layout and one-way streets of Lewistown do make it a challenge.

          A little help:

          To get to Max's from Reedsville or the motels in Burnham or Milroy, take Rt. 322E to Lewistown, and take the Walnut Street Exit. At the traffic light, turn right on Walnut St., then left onto Valley St. at the next light. Follow Valley St. to the blinking yellow light and turn right onto E. 3rd. St. You're there! Max's shop is on the right.

          Leaving Max's is a little more difficult. Continue on E. 3rd St. to the second stoplight, and turn left on N. Brown St. Turn left at the next light onto E. Market St. At the next intersection, don't take the sharp left, but take the "easy" left at your 10:00 o'clock onto Valley St. Keep right and pass the yellow blinker. Turn right onto Walnut St. Cross under Rt. 322, and follow the signs for Rt. 322W, towards State College which will take you back to Burnham, Reedsville and Milroy.

          I hope that this helps.

            Thanks, Jim. Do you have an actual street address with number? If I have that I can put it into my GPS and that will take me to and from there with no problem.

                Being the CASO that I am, I still have the long Johns that the Army gave me in 1978. You can have them, if that will help.

                  Bob,

                  I don't know the street number address. Can your GPS work to an intersection? It would be Valley St. and E. 3rd St. 17044.

                  I may be driving by Max's place later today. If there is a number on the building, I'll let you know.

                    Thanks, Jim. The GPS keys on an actual address. But even a number within a place or two would work... I'll recognize the place when I get near it[8D]

                      Last year, my Garmin didn't know anything about a lot of that new highway configuration near Lewistown. I got a cook's tour of a nearby neighborhood...

                        Bob and Bob,

                        Try 225 E. 3rd St., 17044 in the GPS. It works in Mapquest. It should show the block of 3rd St. between Valley and N. Dorcas St. I can't see an actual number on Max's place, but 224 is directly across the street. The new highway configurations are over a year old now and should be updated in all of the databases now.
