Sunday 26th June - Concours Day, Ettalong Beach Resort.
Ettalong Beach Resort is a new venue for the SCCNSW to have a Concours and it was on the recommendation of our Treasurer who had stayed there earlier.
The food and accommodation were excellent.
Many of the Newcastle members were
there Saturday night and it was a great social evening.
The Diggers club had adverts in the
foyer telling locals of the Sunday Studebaker Club Concours, I'm glad I
washed the Hawk before I came up.
Two Studes on display only, more
than a dozen Ramblers and many Red Ferraris all vehicles could be
purchase for a price.
During the week a red Torana
GTR-XU1 had sold for $200,000. I wish I'd purchased one new on 1973 an
The best cars were in the car park
and they belonged to the Stude members.
Joe's 1923 Roadster was there and it was the first time I had see it since completion.
As members, we visited Joe's place
on many club runs to see the progress over the years.
There seemed to be less stress than
normal with Phil and Helen in charge of the goings on with anyone asked
to do something just doing it. There looked to be a Trophy for
just about every car.
A big effort from Gary because he
also purchased the trophies and printed the certificates.
The Results of the Concours would
be on our website but Joe and Joan Devries took people's choice and top
Car, no surprises there.
It was great to see Laurie and
Colleen from Albury make the trip.
One of our new members with a 1962
Lark also managed to bring his newly acquired 1955 President Hardtop
along as well.
At the end of the presentation we
were told the Resort wants to have our club back for some big annual
show they put on, I'm sure the committee will look at that.
Scott, our President, wished us all
a safe journey home and Harry invited us all to the Newcastle Concours
later in the year.
It was a fun weekend away with good
weather and good people, a great mix.
