Sunday 31st March


The Sunday car run at the Nationals at Pokolbin was an observation run with a surprise visit to a private car and memorabilia collection, " Lost in the Fifties".


People were able to get their direction and questionnaire sheets from breakfast or when they drove out from the Resort in the traffic jam in the morning.


The trip took us on many back roads, I was driving my Hawk with our New Zealand members doing the spotting and giving directions, everybody out on run seamed to be taking things seriously, backtracking to answer all the questions, we even pointed to the opposite sides of the road to throw other Studebaker entrants off, it was all part of the fun. Everybody after said they had no problems with the questions.

We arrived at " Lost in the Fifties" and most people were already there! Only photos could tell the story, from the Batmobile to 30 top quality cars in one main hall from the fifties to the early sixties and 3 or 4 more displays of memorabilia upstairs and about.


The carpark outside was impressive because it was filled with our Studebakers.


Food was from the outside dinner and you could have purchased tee shirts and memorabilia .

At the "Auction night "Harry Kramer invited anybody who finished the observation run to afternoon tea at his house to see his collection of " Stude memorabilia ", most of the people on the run did drop in to check out his garage and see his collection.  The big surprise for me was Karenne 's craftwork and her collection.


The garage was what every Stude member should have!

A run from Sydney to Harry's would make a great club run in the future even a halfway meet!

After that it was back to the resort to get ready for Presentation Night.


The weather was perfect and Julie Pead took the credit for that, she organised the weather for the whole event, she has got some contacts. The observation run was won by a Queensland member, and everybody else was told they were hopeless!
