    'Just a thought...after all, SDC did exist when this 1963 Hawk was manufactured. [:0] Obviously, SDC's founders weren't thinking that far ahead, since much of their original mission was to find parts for their prewar Studebakers.
    I remember SDC as being founded by a group of people that were using their postwar Studebakers as their regular transportation, hence the name of Drivers Club. These were people that associated with A&M Garage.
    I recently came across someone that said that he was an SDC member since 1962. I didn't question him but I find it hard to believe. The Club was incorporated late in December 1962 and this guy was not one of the charter members.

            Well, Gary, if you go WAAAAY back to some of the earliest remarks made by the founders, Harry Barnes really was ticked off that Studebaker could not furnish items for prewar cars that Harry kind of felt should (or maybe might) still be available circa 1961-1962. That's when the gang organized at A&M Garage to discuss what to do. Of course, it was natural that they'd all be driving Studebakers of some variety in 1962, hence the name Drivers Club, as you say.

            AFAIK, Packard Automobile Classics is the only other single-marque club to have been founded while the make was in production, and then survived the marque's demise. Can anyone think of any others? [?] BP

                I think there's a handful of Oldsmobile clubs that were around before the demise of the marque in 2004. There's a local chapter of one of them here that holds a meet in the town of Olds, Alberta (appropriately enough), almost every year. And the same would go for Plymouth. I remember a Plymouth international meet that was held here in 1990.

                    Bob,

                    This may not technically pass, but how about a Jeep club? Since the civilain CJ2-A was introduced in 1946 the Jeep has retained its same general form (though it has dropped the CJ designation) through today. While the model has survived, the manufacturers have not (i.e. Willys Overland, Kaiser Jeep, American Motors Corporation, etc.).

                            JP, somehow I think that BP was referring to clubs that are stateside.
