What a day! Over 20 participants and 10 Studebakers (and 1 plymouth) took part in this years event. We started the day with a tour of the Deeley Motorcycle Exhibition. An incredible display of over 60 motorcycles dating as far back as 1894.
from there we drove downtown to take in the Steamworks Concours d’elégance held on Water Street. Barney Vinegar had his 1952 Commander Convertible on display.
After lunch we battled traffic further downtown on our way to Stanley Park. We had a nice leisurely drive around the park, then on to Vanier Park for a nice photo.
From there we drove along point grey out to Spanish Bank for a walk on the beach and some ice cream. Overall a great day and we look forward to next year.
Plans are in the works for this years Drive Your Studebaker Day. We will be meeting at 10am at Deeley Motorcycle Exibition for a tour of vintage motorcycles. 1875 Boundary Road in Vancouver between E2nd and E4th Ave. for direction click here.
