Welcome to the home of Studebaker fans on the West Coast of Canada!

The B.C. Coastal Chapter is the officially chartered representative of the Studebaker Drivers Club for the B.C. Coastal area. The Studebaker Drivers Club is dedicated to the preservation of the Studebaker name and Studebaker related vehicles produced by the company during its period in the transportation field. A sincere interest in this cause is the only requirement for membership. Vehicle ownership is not a requirement.

The B.C. Coastal Chapter fully supports the parent Studebaker Drivers Club, and requires membership therein. Studebaker Drivers Club provides the membership with yearly national meetings, a monthly publication, Turning Wheels, technical assistance, historical data, assistance in parts and vehicle locating, and a membership roster on a national level. The B.C. Coastal Chapter provides the same services on a local level, in addition to monthly activities including dinner meetings, picnics, driving events and fellowship.
