  • Central Virginia Meet photos

    We had a great Studebaker Meet today.

    The weather was wonderful, temperature in the 70s. We had lots of people who brought their cars to the show, so we had a real variety of makes.

    I put the pictures on Webshots. Here is the link:

    Here is a picture of part of the show.




    Guido brought his Studebaker farm wagon.



    Frank Drumheller (Studelark) brought his 60 Lark.



    And I brought my 52 Commander.

    Lookin' good, Lenny. What is the facility/nature of the business where the meet was held? 'Good to have confirmation of Guido being there and know the potential of his demise was premature.BP

        You know you've "made it" when a Lambo shows up.

          The meet was at Southern Auto Sales. Darryl's father started the used car business and Darryl keeps it going. Here is an old ad. I don't know how Darryl got into Studebakers, but he has a lot of them.
          He says the car business is dead, so he is mostly selling portable buildings and car ports.

              I like how the '57 Stude wagon kept its resale value the same as the Old hardtop wagon.[^] I wonder what the mileage and the condition each were in.

                  Cool, Lenny. It was common practice to have station wagons listed separately.

                  I think I'll take a chance on that '57 Ford 2-door wagon for $199; I always did like 1957 Fords. Please call Darryl and ask him to put a brick on it (figuratively speaking, of course) and I'll be over to get it presently. Thanks. BP

                    Darryl can't get you one but Guido probably can. This one was at the Field Day of the Past that Gary is part of. Of course it is probably not $199!

                        Thanks, Lenny. Boy, it's a wonder they sold any 1957 Chevrolets, as good-looking as were 1957 Fords. But Chevrolet was clearly the better of the two mechanically, which explains Chevrolet's higher survival rate. BP

                            [?] Gold Comet or Continental Red Seal, Craig? (I don't claim to know; I'm not arguing. 'Just seems like Continental Red Seal might be the motive force...) BP

                              The tapered arrow near the grille on the side of the hood identifies the engine.
