    Nick, the tickets you pick up will be for the 2015 Raffle car a 51 Commander Landcruiser, as we sold out on the Avanti on 1/5/14. Tickets sales for the 2015 car are nearing 400 already. The current snow storm will not effect the meet. Temps are to be near 50 degrees on the 21st Hope we have something close to that in York for the meet---- no matter what the temperature the meet will be an affair to remember again this year. Look forward to seeing all of you. Gordon

        Art,
        Very few venues will display more parts for the '52 than York but, better get there early! meet starts on Thursday, hums on Friday and things start packing up early afternoon on Saturday. The drawing for the '63 Avanti is at 2:00 pm Saturday and the parking lot is pretty well empty by 2:30. Also, the very best deals are to be had between 11:00 and 2:00 Saturday.

          No, I have been thinking about a third seat for awhile. But, sorta on a whim maybe some one may have one there.
          I missed one over to Reedsville a few years ago and regretted it since.
          Got knocked down with a serious illness recently and didn't do my homework.
          I will put some feelers out now as I am on the mend and wanting to get out to the garage if it ever stops snowing!
          Thanks, Bill

            777 Please do bring both your Studes. The only charges for any thing at the meet are for raffle tickets, if you choose to purchase--Membership in Keystone, which I hope you either already have or will join--if you are a vendor and want inside or outside space---or if you want space inside the building to either display or sell a car. If you go to the website www.sdckeystoneregion.com you can read the details. If you still have questions, email me at larkregal62@aol.com or call me at 717-574-1529. there are designated Studebaker only areas but no fee or prior registration is necessary. Btw where are you in York? I'm up I-83 in Newberrytown---When I'm in PA. Gordon

                Well...it has been at least 17 years since I have made the trip. Now that we are both retired...my wife and I are discussing the swap meet. If our daughter and her family can keep the poodle, we might attempt the drive up I-81 (avoiding the eastern route and beltway).

                However, in the past, I have always made such trips with other Studebaker nuts, or alone. I have never made reservations and mostly got along pretty well just "winging it." With my wife along...I don't think I can get away with pulling into the parking lot of a truck stop, reclining my seat to sleep, using the public restrooms, breakfast at the "all you can eat" buffet, and back on the road again.

                She's worried about the weather. She is assuming that I plan my trips the same way she plans "her" trips. Apparently, she has yet to realize, that...through the years... all those vacation trips that were "her" trips...she planned. I was just the driver. Problem is...this is "my" trip, there is no "Plan" (reservations/itinerary)
                The weather should be the least of her worry.

                So...any of you folks familiar with the area have suggestions for accommodations that might keep me out of trouble? Can we "show up" and find a decent place? I have to admit, I have not done this enough to be good at it.

                  John, The host hotel is the best western in York. Contact info is on the website www.sdckeystoneregion.com --but call soon for the Studebaker rate--I believe date for guarantee is this weekend--mention stude 14. There are many other motels in the area as the Expo center also hosts the Eastern Street Rod show, which sometimes draws thousands of cars. Google the York area for motels or if you want to, call me after 2/27. I will be back home and can perhaps check around for you. At worst there is a Motel 6 I believe it is at exit 34 on I-83 at Yocumtown,Pa an exit above mine at Newberrytown. I drive iinto the meet each day for the meet and to home each nite. I will be glad to help you as much as possible. Call me at 717-574-1529 Gordon BTW there are a lot of vendors there for your wife and daughter to enjoy in the one building. also there are an abundance of outlet stores in Lancaster about 25 miles to the east. also many other attractions within 30 mi. like I said, call me and I'll clue you in-- Come and have a ball

                    Well, I was planning on going but the wife went and setup a trip to Florida for us the following week. I don't have the vacation time saved up at work to do both so it looks like I am going to Florida instead. See you at York 2015!

                      Just heard from Bob Sheaffer, the Swap Meet Chairman. At this time we only have 7 spaces remaining in Old Main for vendors and 8 in Horticultural Hall. There are spaces for indoor display and sales of your car available for a fee. You must disconnect the battery, have less than 1/4 tank of gas and a fire extinguisher for the car to be inside. Rates are on the website. Outdoor vendor space is available with a fee paid and we can accommodate that at any time during the meet. Please call Bob at 717-341-3141 if you desire a vendor space, or call me at 717-574-1529 to display or sell your car, or if you have any questions. Please come and have a blast! Gordon

                        I'm planning on going on Friday, and possibly might stay near by and come back on Saturday, that part is still up in the air. At least in my memory, the York show is usually the first nice weekend after the long winter. Hopefully this year will be the same.

                            53commander; If you plan on taking the Harley tour look into what is known as the hard toe tour. You might have to register in advance, I,m told the the cost is around $35 but I understand it's the way to go. Jerry Kurtz

                              Hope You find what Your looking for.....I think that '52's are one of the hardest post war Studebakers to 'Bring Back'. Grille parts especially were hard to come by forty years ago!
