  • Pix from Grimsby Museum event last month

    In what's become an annual SDC Hamilton tradition, the Grimsby Museum invited the club to assemble an all-Studebaker car show on the museum's lawn during the town's Festival of the Forty. These pix date to 13 August and show the exceptional variety of Studes that attended this year's showing...

              Yep, I was pretty bowled-over by the '33 Prez as well. Had heard about it but had never seen it until it glided past the museum on arrival for the show Aug 13. I was talking to the lady who co-owns the car...she said she and her husband, who have had the car since the sixties, rarely bring it out anymore because it's showing some rust these days...and they remember it when it wasn't. I found that very poignant...and the car, so rare a survivor, absolutely enchanting.

                Thanks for the photos, esp the '33. It is one of two survivors known in this body style and only nine of all body styles. The owner is Don Carter of Campden, Ont. Car serial #6950864 Body 90 R2 40. Assembled in Walkerville, Ont Canada. They have done quite a bit of clean up, fix up since the last photo I have of the car The image above is a factory publicity shot.
