  • Six Studebakers at Durham, CA Fall Festival

    A great continuation of IDYSD occurred at the Durham festival with 6 nice Studebakers on the beautiful lawn there. And to top it off, Studebaker owners were called to the awards platform 5 times! It was great to meet forum member Tom Piantanida (GinettaG12P ) and see his recently acquired '59 Silver Hawk Click image for larger version

ID:	1740569 There were well over 200 cars in attendance with many very nice cars so the Studebakers represented the marque very well. I even heard someone say, "Wow, there are a lot of Studebakers here."
