    The Atlantic Canada Chapter is not large enough to host our own shows. Each year, as one of our Chapter activities, we attend another club's show as a group, rotating between several of the all-make antique clubs in our region. We always have been made to feel very welcome by the host clubs. Seeing about 10 diverse Studebakers parked together always gets a good response from the public.

      Our local chapter tries to get together at a show or cruise in twice a month or so. We're going to a nice show put on by the Rotary tomorrow, should have 5 or 6 Studebakers in a field of 100 or so cars.

        Our Eastern NC Chapter is going one better this November. We have invited the local Mercedes and Packard clubs to a "family reunion" meet in Raleigh. I think we'll draw quite a crowd. I'll post an announcement in its own thread soon.

          Dad and I went to a local multi make show today. (The weather cleared just enough for the show to happen). Dad's 50 Champion and my Hawk drew more attention than anything else at the show. There were some awesome cars there but people seemed to be fascinated by having 2 Studebakers sitting side by side. This show normally doesn't have any Studebaker's. We had a constant crowd around the cars. It seems that everyone owned 1 or 2 back in the day. Since everyone used to own them, why did our favorite brand stop making cars?

          Mike, this "family reunion" show sounds great. I look forward to hearing details of when and where.

            I just went through my pics on my phone and the only pic I have of the Fernie Fire Dept. 1928 Studebaker truck is this one .. Its on main street in Fernie and the cars were all clearing the main street after the car show this year . The city bought the truck new in 1928 .. It was fully restored a few years back . Lots of help from some SDC people in the Calgary chapter . The truck is used lots in local events and is trailered for longer distance outings ..

              Thanks, Wayne. The thing has taken on a life of its own. It will be Saturday, November 5 at Oak View County Park in Raleigh, official start time 1pm. I hope you and your dad can bring the newly-revived Henry and the Champion!

                Our chapter fielded 6 Studebakers at the Rotary Clubs "Patriots day" show today, plus another Avanti by a non member. Out of approx. 150 cars 7 Studebakers is pretty good. Three of them were picked for awards, one Hawk custom, one Bullet nose, and one Avanti.

                  The biggest show I go to each year is the Pumpkin Run Nationals in Owensville , Ohio . This year it is Sept.30 , Oct 1, 2nd , last year had a lot of rain and poor turnout , year before 2473 entries , their were 7 M series pickups , A few R series , Some Larks and Hawks . Studebaker did make a impact , My M series got a top 50 out of the 2473 . I was really surprised ! I am already registered this year , but do not think I have a chance to get any more trophies !

                      I've been taking my 62 GT to several shows in Southern Ontario and the response to the car has been overwhelming. Just this past weekend we won yet another trophy among a field of very nice cars but the uniqueness and rarity of seeing a GT has resulted in a great deal of interest at the shows I have attended. I'm 55 so I hope to be promoting Studebaker for many years to come!

                            Attended a car show in Beausejour Manitoba Canada last weekend. Over 600 cars. There were 6 Stude's. Over 400 of the cars were post 1970. Lots post 2000. Unfortunately I could not make it on my T-Cab - brake issues!

                              Car show promotors here in NE TX are charging entry fees to show. $25 to $30 a car. You get a T shirt but nothing to eat or drink. Cruise-ins are just as much fun and they are free. Seeing a Stude at a show or cruise-in around here is an experience. They are about as rare at a show as my 83 Full Size Jeep Cherokee Laredo . All original except for paint ant tires

                                I attended the Rocky Mtn AMC car club Fall event in Longmont, CO on Saturday. Their website said Orphan Cars were invited. A man brought his recently restored 67 Avanit II to the event. The only Studebaker there. I think someday for old cars to survive combining clubs will take place. Not everyone is turning their cars into $$$$$$ Good Guys cars.
                                The Avanti had a 5 speed manual. Click image for larger version
