The San Diego Antique Car Club has invited us to join them in some of their events, starting with a silent movie in March, Villa Montezuma.

 Our event in December, Christmas luncheon, was well attended, no gift exchange – instead brought Toys for Tots; our THANKS to Maria and Ken Howell who took the toys to the Marine reserves for their toy drive.

New business:    New name tags:  proposed new magnetic tags to be made by Mike Del awards (already has logo),   Mimi will check to see how much.

Our 7th Annual Cool Classic Car Show:  Cooling off by the Bay

By Bob Halgren

On September 26, 2015 the San Diego County Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club hosted its seventh annual Cool Classic Car Show at beautiful Spanish Landing Park on San Diego Bay.  The cool breeze and shade trees made for a fabulous venue for 39 gorgeous Studebakers and Packards — the best venue yet for our show.

Participants came from as far as the Los Angeles area and Arizona – our Long Distance Award went to the Painters from Yuma.  We even had one 74 year old man and his 82 year old wife drive their motorcycle from Pahrump, Nevada just to see the show.

Everyone was treated to music courtesy of Don Cox while they gorged themselves on treats from the Daytona Diner and lightened their wallets at the Raffle table and the 50-50 drawing.

We had a wonderful group of volunteers helping to keep things running smoothly.  For some this was their seventh year doing this. Thanks so much.  Net proceeds will go to Homefront San Diego, a military charity.  Thanks to all who made this such an enjoyable show.

A new “album” with all the cars is under construction, but here is a first look for those who couldn’t make it.

A Good Showing of Studebakers at Cruisin Grand

Studebaker Night at Escondido’s Cruisin Grand went well again this year! Among the 8 cars, we had great representation from the ranks of Hawks and early coupes plus TWO Avantis, but we could have used more representatives from Bullet Noses, Larks and other famous Studebakers. The pictures below will give you an idea of the nice group of cars and the good crowd we had. Please excuse the “Brand X” pickup that’s in most of the pictures; it was there in connection with a popcorn stand that was set up in our area.
