    Does anyone know for certain if a Studebaker can be displayed without being judged and if so must it be registered prior to Sat.? Thanks and have a safe commute!

    I arrived this afternoon. I am writing this from the lobby. I will walk over and check the sign. I believe that concours registration ends Friday. Just checked the sign - 5 PM Friday is the deadline.

    The Chicagoland trio arrived safe and sound Weds. nite around 11 PM local time. Its a little over 700 miles for us. I like Rte 30 through IN and IL a whole lot better than the twists and turns going up and down mountains outside of Gettysburg. My only casualty of the trip was the ac crapping out halfway through Ohio. The rebuilt 400 and the newly installed 200R4 got me 22.8 mpg doing the speed limit. There is a wash rack at the back of the Eisenhower main inn, but only about 10' of hose. park close! Lot's of Avantis here.

    I don't have an official answer but please allow me share my opinion on this.

    I don't like it when the displayed cars are relegated to the parking lot or some other location in the far corner of the show field. I say lump the show cars and display cars together in their appropriate classes. Our local show just puts a little orange sticker on the cars to be judged. Display cars don't have them and this makes it easy to tell the difference.

    Anyway, I go to the shows to look at ALL the Studebakers whether show condition or not. Let's not segregate our Studes. I believe that this approach may lead to even more people bringing their cars to the shows.

    The good Gettysburg folks probably already plan to do this. If this isn't currently in the plans, it should be, and there is still time to make this adjustment.

    Sounds like the Turquoise sweetheart in the trailer behind me will be in good company.

    Here already....and, by to tomorrow, we'll be ready for you

    Studeguy& Avantidon are in Gettysburg, and have been busy for the last two days getting ready for the show. The Accuweather.com (check us....) forecast is for NO RAIN. John Hull, Dale Sexton, and many more from AOAI have been busy toiling with us to make this show a big success.

    Join us this week for the big Studebaker event of the summer, Remember...

    In 2011, the Studebaker Address is Gettysburg!

    Matt - I am glad that you will be attending. Looking forward to seeing you again.

    Do you remember the guy that needed a part transported from Atlanta to Gettysburg? Maybe you are driving an Avanti and do not have room.

    Gettysburg is the Atlantic Zone Meet. To get together with most of the "northeast guys" you will need to attend the Northeast Zone Meet in Waterbury Connecticut in September.

    Yes, I also remember the Avanti. I believe that the last that I saw Walt was at another Atlantic Zone Meet and he was vending. He was there in an ElCamino that he referred to as his modified Avanti (reference to the 1987-1991 Avantis on Chevrolet chassis).
