    ASC and SDC mix on occasion out here. The results are always the best shows/drives I can remember. I hope they do it for our zone meet this year. I recall 100+ cars at one show, and 80 on a drive tour.. It was nice to have several antiques in the mix. I have an awesome video of it and an encounter with the "Daylight' Steam Engine...... How do you U Tube?

            Agreed, Mike.

            The Northwest Passage ASC tours/events were one of the best parts of the Zone Meet, and both organizations took every effort to ensure they did not overlap, which made it great for everyone who wished to attend both. In 2010, the ASC's tour was the day before the SDC show, and all who attended got to see a nice early brass-era car collection hidden away in Bellingham, among other historical sites in the area. Again, in 2014, the ASC held an excellent Zone Meet in St. Regis immediately after the SDC meet in Post Falls.

              They are still planning the Can Am Zone Meet. I guess I could ask.

                That same collection was part of the Northwest OverDrive a few years later...

                The ASC does indeed have some plans for the days prior to our Zone Meet.

                I can't speak for them, but the Can-Am Zone Meet plans are moving along.
                Information has been posted on our Facebook page, as well as on SDC's.
                More will follow, but you can save the dates-- July 5 to 7, 2019.
                In Bellingham, WA.

                  Dick,

                  Absolutely correct, but it may have escaped notice that in Tacoma we included included an SDC tour. It followed the same rout, that the ASC used for one of our two tours to the LeMay family collection. All of the touring events were well attended, with the SDC portion having between 90 and 100 cars. Obviously very popular, but maybe too popular, given Tacoma's traffic. In my view, one hundred cars in an urban setting is really pushing the envelope. I think that most everyone enjoyed all of the tours. At least I heard no negative comments. It's really hard to cram all the events into the new truncated SDC International format, but I do hope that the powers that be consider making a tour a regular part of the event.

                  We in the PNW have been very fortunate to have had a long running forty year spring tour, the Northwest Overdrive. When Gary and Vergie Finch and a friend from Spokane began the event in the 70's, it was to address exclusion of a driving tour at the yearly Can-Am. While the Can-Am events are often in an urban setting, a more rural setting for the OD has been the norm. Having two events at different times and places has it obvious advantages of driving/showing, locations and vacation schedules.

                  Attendance at to OD over the last forty plus years has made it obvious that SDC people want to drive their cars. Remote locations and distance toured seems to have no affect on our desire to tour. Case in point, several years ago, I chose and lead a tour that I thought was pushing the envelope. It was one of my favorite drives to the ocean, but it would be 160 mile tour, and there was simply no was to shorten the tour, and do the route justice. After asking a number of people what they thought, I decided to just grit my teeth, trust what I knew about Studebaker owners and go for it. IMHO it was a great tour. We actually had two tours that year a shorter ASC tour through the countryside. I chose to have two tours that year because it was just too good an opportunity to ignore. More is better, well over two hundred miles of touring, over two days, with almost no complaints!

                  This year's OD is in Salmon Arm BC, Canada May 25-27(260 miles north of Seattle, maybe six hours driving time). Remember getting there is at least half the fun!-Bill

                    As a reminder to ASC members and possible new members. We are planning a 3 day driving tour in Ohio prior to the national meet in Mansfield.

                      I too have always found it amassing that the antiquers drive their cars and the drivers club didn't until last year. The ASC also has huge presence at Hershey, we have a driving tour the Sunday and Monday before Hershey, the Northeast Fall Roundup, where we had about a dozen pre-war cars and the SDC does nothing. I own the green 37 State President Cp, in the pictures, since 2012 the car has received an AACA national award in 2013 and in 2016 received the Grand National Award.

                        That is a gorgeous car, and well deserving of those awards.

                        Now all we got to do is convince RQ to restore that similar green '37 coupe of his to look as good as yours!!

                          Craig; Will not happen in my lifetime. Love the patina of a car paked close to 50 years with all of its original features including the original bug screen!

                            The patina of your '36 Coupe is just like the patina for you & I Dick. It does not need to change, we have aged gracefully like your treasured Coupe !!

                              It looks blue now. In the garage photo in Post #62 here; http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...ghlight=patina . it appears green.

                              But still retaining that original bug screen is really something!!
