  • Tours of the Administration Building

    I thought I had heard, or seen, that there may be tours of the Studebaker Administration Building. I thought I saw/heard a price of $25. Worth it to me. I can't find anything about it now. Does anybody have any information on this? I want to bring an older friend who was a Studebaker/Packard/M-B dealer, but he wouldn't be able to stay all week with his son. Also, steps can be an issue for him. Would that preclude such a tour?

    As always, thanking you in advance for your assistance, whomever it may be!

      I now see on the official website, www.sdcmeet.com, that Administration Building tours are tentatively scheduled the morning, and afternoon, of Tuesday, July 31.

      I would still like to know if a former Studebaker dealer having issues with steps would be able to do the tour. I know there are elevators in the building; wondering if they work and can be used.

      Thank you!

        When this tour was offered back in 2007- I took it!!!
        Unfortunately I left my camera on a vendor's table earlier that afternoon.

        I do recall there being stairs- and lots of them. Not to mention lots of walking.
        I do not believe that the elevators were being used.
        But things have changed since '07-
        the tour was FREE back then...

          All,

          I will lcheck on the status of the tour and the use of elevators and post back here ASAP.

          As some of the chairs are on the road wor work quite a bit it might be better in some cases to send us a direct email or call as it can be difficult to monitor the Forum at all times.

          Thanks!!!

            Dave, as I recall, it was $20 for that tour.

              Correct, Craig. I was one of the volunteer tour guides, and the cost was $20. I believe it went to Indiana Historic Landmark Foundation, or something close to that. BP
              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

              Ayn Rand:
              "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

              G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                I stand corrected and scared. If I can forget a simple detail like that from that long ago- maybe by next week I will have forgotten my name!!!

                    You've got that all wrong- more like "back in 2007 money was no object"

                    These days it is a completely different story!!!

                    There is much less money to go around after I retired from the NAVY 3 1/2 years ago,
                    and have yet to find a job to generate the income needed for this hobby.


                    (yup- look for a Stude or two to be on the block very soon...)
