      Yep we also had a great time. The whole experience was well planned. The street party was a great touch and it seemed the turnout from the South Bend residents was great.

              Wish we would have had more than 2 days there. It was a great meet, very well run (as usual there in South Bend), everyone was cordial and helpful, and the city of South Bend did a great job hosting all of us out of towners. Thanks to you all. B.V.

                  I'll add my thanks to the Michiana Chapter also.

                  Spent four days at the meet, always had something Studebaker/Avanti to do and met a ton of great people. The only thing I missed was not having one of my Studes there.

                  WELL DONE!!!! Folks

                            What more can be said? It was a wonderful meet. Thanks so much for all who made it happen. 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.

                              This Meet was a team effort!

                              The Michiana Chapter, The Studebaker National Museum, The City of South Bend, and the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

                              If any of you have ever planned an event like this you know that it takes a lot of teamwork. We appreciate you all coming to South Bend, and spending your time.

                              FYI, we went through a little more than 100 cases of water on Concours Day, and 250 pounds of ice. There were 560ish cars in the Concours in South Bend. This doesn't include 2 wagons and Moon Buggy. The lines of Studebakers in each Division were approx 325 feet long. The lines of Avantis were 187 Feet long. We had 152 cars going around the Proving Ground track Saturday. 5 cars overheated or vapor locked. We had 654 people at the Banquet on Friday night. One car in the Car Corral sold within an hour or two of it being parked in the Corral. We used 250 tables for the Swap Meet. We filled up 8 trailers with trash in the cleanup of the Fairgrounds. (That's a lot of old Studebaker boxes)
