  • 44th INTERNATIONAL SDC MEET PHOTOS

    I enjoyed the many photos of this event pictured in January Turning Wheels, and am amazed at how beautiful so many of the cars are. As an owner of a '50 Champion, 2 door, I am most interested in the very sharp looking details that each Champion has.

    I bought my car in 1997 and have only concentrated all this time on making it safe and mechanically reliable, although when I bought it, it had been restored somewhat in the 70's and had newer yellow paint, new interior and chrome but all was worn and well used.

    The last year or more I have decided to put the mechanical condition in really top shape to drive long distances which is now being completed during January.

    Any photos you guys would love to share with me would give me some new goals on making her outside beautiful too?? -my headlight rims were painted and bondo'd, and now I am frankly jealous of all this fancy shiny trim and nicer paint that so many of you have.

    Would love some help. I have tried once to put photos in these but haven't quite got the hang of it.

          You need to put your pictures on a site like Photobucket.com, then click on the direct link and copy it. Click on the yellow block with the mountain on the format. It will place brackets with img in it. Paste it the direct link in between the brackets.

            Well, you have to be careful what you wish for!!

            Just reviewed all your responses and I have learned a huge amount in just 15 minutes of review of your various responses. I discovered I have a Champion Regal Deluxe 2 door, after 10 years of ownership! The "here are a few photos" that one guy posted are a wealth of information, and a guy in Sweden has such great history.

            I am sitting in NY City and now can't wait for the snow storm to come tonight, so I can delve into all of these resources and feast on the hundreds of photos.

            Already staring to think how rewarding it could be to upgrade the car cosmetically and there is no limit it seems, other than the obvious costs. Wow!!!

            Thank you all!

            Jim

              Thank You, Thank You, Thank You so much for taking the videos and posting for everyone to see. Absolutely awesome meet and the vehicles are all impressive. Got to see faces I have not seen in years and some cars also. I am proud to be a member of this fine and outstanding club which has got to be second to none. I will make sure that my non Studebaker friends view the videos. Quite a testimonial to all the very talented people having varying degrees of association with some of the finest automobiles that were ever produced by Americans. Bob J., your still photos were also a treat. Thanks jimmijim

                I'm so glad you enjoyed the videos, Jim. I took and posted them. I'm disappointed by how shaky they are, but the camera's about the size of a cellphone. I plan to add a collapsible monopod to help steady it.

                From now on, I plan to tape any Stude gathering I attend, and post the footage. Maybe focus more on willing individuals. I think they're valuable for posterity, although the reviews were mixed. Next up is York, and if situation allows, Cedar Rapids. With more practice I'll get better at it.

                Thanks for the comments[^]

                    No problem. My goal is to do these videos on my own for the free viewing of all. I think they'll be great to have as the years get on and the people in them pass away. It sure would be great to see casual video of Egbert or Stevens or Bourke or thousands of others[8D] So now I want to capture the folks still with us- although some are reluctant subjects. Ultimately an archive of videos might be something good I could contribute to the Club.

                    I guess we'll see how it goes...

                      Bob, your post reminded me that in 1993, I had an accidental meeting with Martha Fleener, who was Sherwood Egbert's secretary at Studebaker. She was a completely charming lady...classy and approachable. She was at the 30th anniversary Avanti meet in South Bend, as were several other Studebaker luminaries who have since passed away. She was the widow of Lon Fleener, who was instrumental in bringing M-B into the Studebaker fold. I overheard her in the meet hotel telling someone she had been "Sherwood's secretary". I always thought what a great interview she would be. Several years later I met her again at the old SNM at a dinner, where she was accompanied by a priest from Notre Dame. I had my picture taken with her, but now I can't find it.

                      In 1993, she had told me that she still kept in some touch with Mrs. Egbert and also Mrs. Byers Burlingame. How it would be good to get Mrs. Fleener and Mrs. Egbert to consent to interviews, although I'm not sure Mrs. Egbert's memories of that time would be all positive.

                      I remember hearing someone say once that Mrs. Fleener at some point joined the AOAI. She supposedly said, "I had an Avanti as a Company car; will that allow me to get a membership?"

                      Classy lady.

                        Mrs. Fleener passed away a few years ago Bill. I also met her in 1993 at the AOAI meet. What an awesome meet that was. I saw John Hull in Tampa in October at the FL State Meet and we reflected on the meet.
