  • The Woody has Arrived at the Museum!!

    After many years of work, travel, and effort the Woody has arrived at the Studebaker National Museum fully restored! This is one of the focal points of the 48th Annual Studebaker International Meet in South Bend. The Woody will be on the main floor so make sure you come to the Museum and take a look at it. It will be a lasting example of teamwork, expertise, history, and dedication for many generations. Thanks to the many people who worked on this project. It is a truely beautiful car, and a great addition to the Museum.

      YEEEAAAHHHHHH!!!!! Thanks for the update Bob. When I heard it was at Barrys getting the interior finished a while back I've been driving by there on my way home from work trying to get a glympse at it. Sure am glad to hear it's FINALLY DONE!!!
      One question though, when will the formal unveiling be at the SNM? I'd like to be there if possible.

        I am not sure when the formal unveiling will be, but I also would like to be there. I will ask today as we have a meeting today, and post it here for everyone.

            Regarding the unveiling, it will have a formal unveilng after the Meet. The informal unveiling will be during the Meet. I got to see it last night, and I agree with Jim. It will be something generations will admire.

              I dearly hope that she'll be available for viewing at the museum on the Saturday of the beginnning of the International meet (July 28). I'll be passing through as my family drives from Missouri to Montreal, and I will be crying during our entire vacation if I don't get to see the Woody in the flesh!

                Matt,

                I will find out when the car gets put on the turnstyle on the ground floor, and leave a message here. I hope it works into your plans. It is pretty nice!

                    Gentlemen,

                    According to the Museum, they are 99.5 percent sure it will be on display by Saturday. It will be on the turntable in the window at the Museum. They are just working on the final touches for the display.

                    Thanks
                    Bob H.

                        Peanut,

                        OK, as of yesterday, the folks at the Museum are 99.5 percent sure that the Woody will be sitting on the turnstile, front and center at the Museum before Saturday.

                        I hope you are able to stop by and see it. It is really a beautiful car that generations will not only learn the story behind it, but also appreciate special it is.

                          I plan to leave town by 5:00 a.m. GoogleMaps puts that trip at just over 8 hours. Planning a lunch break and bathroom breaks, I think that I could be there between 2:00 and 3:00. I hope that I can see everything I want to in the museum within an hour, because we're trying to make it to Lansing in time to have a little fun before bedtime.

                          Thanks, again, for everybody's work on this project. If worse comes to worst, and I don't have the time to stop by on the way up, we'll be retracing our steps on the way home, so I could try to drop by on Sunday.

                            Matt,
                            I was lucky enough to get many pictures in the past week or so, and you will not be disappointed.

                              And let's remember Phil Brown when we're admiring this work of art. This project is memory of Phil and his leadership in bringing it to fruition.
