  • Summit Racing Studebaker Meet, Sat. Aug. 24, 11a.m.-5p.m., Tallmadge, OH, just east of Akron...

    This is a great meet with always comfortably over 100 Studes and last year there were about 50 Packards as well, not to mention a smattering of other independent makes.

    Attendance is free, and we want to see your Stude or Packard there!

    It is at Summit Racing's huge, modern retail store at Interstate 76, Exit 29. Stock and custom and rods, all welcome!

    Hope to see you there!

    PM me for any questions.

        Thanks, Dave. I've heard weather is supposed to be fine Sat., 76 degrees, although haven't yet checked myself.

                    Al, see you tomorrow with your gang! I'm from western PA originally myself--Greenville. I've lived in NE OH for over 30 years but I still consider Greenville "home".

                          Bill, sorry I missed you at the meet. We had an emergency visit to the vet Saturday morning. I hoped to leave at 9 or so but didn't leave until noon. For the first time, I brought the '54. I thought the turnpike might be a little intense for the old Champion, so I took 422 out of Butler and picked up 224 near New Castle and came across that way. The car was running great. Temperature and oil pressure held steady and were excellent. The traffic in Boardman and Canfield was horrible though. I arrived at the meet just past 2:30 and stayed until 4 pm. There sure were some beautiful cars there. I looked all over and couldn't find you.

                          Since the car was performing so well, I just took 76 all the way to Cranberry twp. going home and got there a half hour quicker than my trip out. Good thing my overdrive works, so I could cruise! I kept it down to around 60 or 62 mph and there were no problems.

                          I had brought a bunch of tools and spare parts in the trunk, foolishly not having total faith in Studebaker durability.

                            Dave, I didn't see your car at all! I'm disappointed to have missed you! I sure hope to see it and you at Summit next year, and I will probably bug you into bringing it up to Greenville beforehand too!

                            There was a fellow whose name escapes me, from Butler who has a nice gold '63 Avanti with tangerine interior (!) who had it there. Nice car. There was also a stunning Colonial Red '60 Lark 2-door sedan from Butler there...it was an early Lark that just stopped me dead in my tracks, it was that nice. That car left early.

                            We ended up having 93 Studebakers and a good number of Packards and other independents as well. I'll post those totals soon.

                            I'll throw it out to anyone reading here who was there...does the lack of nearby restaurants (close enough to walk to or get ice cream) present an issue? We did have a sandwich, fries, and soft drink vendor who seemed busy.
