      Nice pics!
      Agreed, but next time use smaller pix or put them on PhotoBucket and post a link.

        Yep, this was a challenge for my little mini laptop.

        Some of you might remember my thread about my "accidental meet visit" while driving my wife around on "Her" vacation. However, we stumbled onto this display and, for us, it was truly accidental. Because we were spending our time wandering around in Amish country and happened upon this event while looking for a place to eat. After lunch, we mingled among the owners and had some great conversation as they were preparing to leave. Truly, one of the highlights of our trip. Great vehicles and wonderful people!

                Craig; Thanks for the outstanding photos!! We (ASC) had over a score of cars and about 180 people at our dinner on Friday. The tour was about 70 miles both ways. Does anyone else find it just a little ironic that the Antique Studebaker Club made up of vehicles 66 years old or older "drives" its cars on tours during its national meet and the Studebaker DRIVERS Club sits theirs on a show field to be judged??

                  I do, actually. Even moreso after this past weekend- see Dad's thread here~

                  There were nearly as many ASC cars as there were SDC cars.
                  Then again- many of the ASC folks are dual members.
                  They just happened to drive their old stuff that day...

                        Maybe the ASC can have an event like the one shown in the video in the first link for the Great War & earlier Studebakers: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/319749...ars-go/?page=7

                        A very interesting 1939 video to watch!!

                          Craig; Watched the entire thing. Very impressive both for the number and variety of cars but also the many events that were offerd. The filming was also first-rate.Color film in 1939 was quite rare. FYI the Horseless Carriage Club accepts vehicles made before Jan. 1, 1916 only so these were indeed old cars by 1939. Amazing progress made in 23+ years.

                            I have often wondered how many SDC cars would join an ASC tour if invited. I think both clubs could be surprised with the results. Tours can be a blast.

                              Not really practical since at approx. noon on our tour we retire to a eating establishment and have an awards banquet. Usually limited to maybe 150 or so.
