    Thanks for sharing this experience with the rest of us. I have been to three of these events but only as a spectator, not a participant. Your experience sound fantastic. As other have said you are a wonderful representative of the Studebaker marque. Thanks for taking on that task and for doing it so well. My hat is off to you.

    Congratulations, Jake, on your participation in life's fun aspects! I love that Daisy Mae had another Studebaker for company. You are a credit to Studebaker-dom!

    Yes, even though I did not get to see you in person, I did get to have a thorough look around your impeccable grey Avanti. I wanted to sit inside, so that I could compare the interior with that of my GT Hawk just to feel what the differences are, but I know that I couldn't because you were not around. Still had fun though!

    I'm impressed! & so on!
    The way it's all going I reckon all(!) gods everywhere must have had an eye on you for the sake of Studebaker... Like this with all the people being so supportly more young guys might find their way to Studebaker & in the end also maby not so much parts won't end up as scrap shipped to china.

    Jake,

    Congratulations! The door to the huge world of automotive history has magically been opened in front of you. We who have watched as your enthusiasm for your car, and your willingness to share with those of us in the establishment, recognized that you had the right stuff to help shoulder the mantle for the hobby. The world of old cars has been searching for leaders who can bridge the gap between the old and the new. The willingness that you have shown to leave your comfort zone and expand perspective, makes it clear that you are up to the challenge. I wish you good luck, but it hasn't been luck that has gotten you this far, and I doubt that it is going to be luck that carries you forward. The world is watching!

    Bill

    Jake,
    Remember what I stated a little time ago "These events lead into untold territory of future connections and associations upon which a monetary figure can't be placed"?
    You are the man, living our dream as well as your own, and now look where you are. The custodian of 33,000 carefully preserved historical documents and photographs the likes of which will probably never be duplicated in the future.
    You are truly an amazing young man with a brilliant future ahead of you. I can tell by the pics you had a ton of fun and were the finest representative of the Studebaker marque for which we could have ever hoped.
    This will surely give you something unique to discuss with your peers (and teachers) at college. Enjoy the heck out of it and once again "a Big Hearty Thanks!" for being such a fine representative.
    Wishing you great grades and a Happy Future.
    Bill & Sonja

    Congratulations, Jake. What a wonderful chain of events - which l'm sure will continue. You are definitely "living the dream" in the world of historic vehicles!

    Great to see enthusiasm and such wholesome representation. It beats the "get off my lawn" bunch by a mile!

    Jake, you have indeed come a long way in a short time. It sounds like you not only had an opportunity to show off your car and have a good time, but meet some good and influential people and open some very important doors. Your fellow Studebaker supporters salute you and hope there is more to come. Congratulations, again, and don't let all of this distract you from your studies. You have a great future ahead of you and you can count on your friends with the Studebaker Club to cheer you on. I hope we have an opportunity to meet some day in the not too distant future. Drive on lad.
