A Good Showing of Studebakers at Cruisin Grand
Studebaker Night at Escondido’s Cruisin Grand went well again this year! 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.
Studebakers in the Coronado 4th of July Parade
THANKS to the Halgrens, we had 3 great Studebakers in the Coronado 4th of July Parade this year. Here is a picture taken by Michele St. Clair. Please get your pride and joy ready for next year’s parade so that we can have an even better showing!
We got an Inside Look at the Air and Space Museum
The Air and Space Museum event was a big success with 21 people showing up for the tour. There were 5 Studebakers driven there as well. Jim Weir was our wonderful tour guide, full of knowledge, stories, and information. Jim didn’t only take us around the museum, he also took us to the machine shop in the basement where the magic happens, planes being built, parts being made, and plans for more projects being made. Lunch followed at the Chicken pie Shop in San Diego where everyone left with full bellies and smiles on their faces. Here are some scenes.
