Greetings to SDC Zone Coordinators:

The Board of SDC has recently passed a motion to make October our offical Membership Recruiting and Retention Month.

What will take place each October has not yet been fully fleshed out, however, one issue that has come up repeatedly is

the existence of chapter members who are not members of SDC. I would apprecaite it if you would contact your Regional

Managers or Club Presidents and remind them of the requirement that all chapter members be members of SDC. Please have

all your Presidents submit membership lists to either Mark Wheeler at Cornerstone or to Richard Dormois. You might remind

them of the provisions of the Policy Manual that state all local chapters agree to conform to the provisions of the SDC Bylaws...

and of the Board and that “only members of SDC will be accepted as members of the local group and the Chapter will submit

a membership list if requested.

Thank you for your assistance with this.

Mimi Halgren

SDC President

I found your club in Larz Anderson Auto Museum email list. I don’t own a Studebaker, but do have stories. If the “Studegram”

reports emails I have a brief interest story to post if it’s not too depressing. When I was a fool drinking at a weekend party in

the 60s I wanted to sober up volunteering to drive the band home, but because my date brought her drink and it was a hot

day in traffic my sobering ceased and we ended up flying my 56 Golden Hawk with the entire band doing a 180 barrel roll

and landing on the roof after I tried to demonstrate a 4 wheel drift which I got ok at by myself,, but the 600 extra pounds was

not in my drunken equation.! Fortunately only the guilty one, me, was hurt due to no seat belts keeping our heads up where

the lawn now was in the front seat while the rear held up fine. I still have my 300 degree Packard 352ci hot oil scar on my

arm where the dash trapped me. When I look at that scar I know someday I’ll own another 56 green & white Golden Hawk to

treat her much better in memory of her sister now long gone. But maybe her engine is still breathing. I sold it to my sculpture

Proffer who loved Studies and so he put it in his 53 Commander Starliner. I had one last drive as he towed me and I sat in all

the glass below that flattened roof peeking out over the rumpled hood while staring at all those round instruments at rest on

that faux but beautiful turned alum dash. My granddad had 3 Studebakers and my dad 4 more. I almost bought a 63 Avanti

but it was too steep for my school budget at the time, but maybe I will someday?

keep em running,

Tristram W. Metcalfe III

Greetings from Ohio,

I am trying to locate a 1955 Studebaker Speedster that was once in my family. My grandfather bought it in 1957 from the

original owner here in Ohio. It was in our family until the early 1980’s. My brother moved to Sacramento and had the car

shipped to him. His intention was to restore it. When after replacing many parts he got tired of working on it and didn’t want

to put the time or efforts into a total restoration, he traded it to someone for a 1965 Mustang. The rest of us in the family were

really bummed out about this. It was in very good shape, aside from underside rust from sitting in a damp garage. Beautiful

green and yellow color scheme!

The VIN number is 7162908 and the body number is 6H-K7 1134. I would like to locate the current owner; my ultimate goal is

to see if I might be able to purchase this Speedster.

Regards,

John Plaskett

President’s Message NOVEMBER

Here it is, holiday season again! Bah

Humbug, where did the summer go! Let

alone what happened to the fall! Rain,

rain, and more rain! It is amazing that we

squeezed two great Ocean Bay meets

out of all that rain! Both the September

in Palmer at Pease Collection of Historical

Instruments and October’s Octoberfest

meet were great weather, so I guess I

can’t complain too much! By now our

Studebakers should be tucked away in the

garage for the winter. With that in mind we

must turn to business for the November

meet and a little joyous celebrating for

December.

Coming up in November is Ocean Bay’s

Annual Business Meeting at the Lafayette

House in Foxboro MA. This is a very

important meeting for Ocean Bay, we

have a lot of things to go over and much

of it needs to be set at this meeting. First

on the agenda is the Calendar of Events

for 2010. As you can see in this issue of

the newsletter the Calendar of Events for

2010 is blank, the only meet set for 2010

is the Zone Meet. We need your thoughts

for 2010 and we certainly need to set the

January and February meet at this business

meeting.

Just as important as the calendar is the

2010 Northeast Zone Meet. Many things

must be reviewed and discussed to make

the Zone Meet a great event. As usual I

will be looking for volunteers that can

help out in both the planning of the Zone

Meet and volunteers that can help out the

day of the meet. Zone Meets just doesn’t

happen! It takes a lot of planning and effort

to make thing work. A couple of items that

I would like to address at this November

meeting are as follows; trophies, Ocean

Bay for many years now has given Wilton

Armetale custom pewter plates as our

trophies. I have contacted Wilton Armetale

to see what they had to offer this year. To

my dismay I found out that they have been

taken over by a new company and their

prices have almost doubled. This is going

to make it almost imposable for Ocean

Bay to continue in it’s tradition. I am now

looking for alternative trophies for the

Zone Meet, but I feel that they must be

unique in design, something as worthy as

the Wilton Armetale trophies that Ocean

Bay is proudly noted for. I strongly believe

that if you charge someone to enter their

car in a Concours d’Elegance then you

should give a trophy that is worthy of them

entering their car in the event. Also on the

list of items that needs to be discussed is

the Awards Banquet, what would you like

to see this year at the banquet, should we

have a guest speaker this year? Any other

thoughts? There is much to go over for the

Zone Meet so please make every effort

to attend this very important business

meeting.

Other items that we will be talking about

will be the Studegram, Ocean Bay’s new

webpage and Ocean Bay’s financial state.

Also at this meeting I will be looking for a

new Membership Secretary. Dennis Luukko

has informed me that he would like to step

down as Membership Secretary. I will be

looking for someone that is good with

computers and is familiar with Microsoft

Office Excel. This is a very important office

that must be filled immediately with the up

coming Ocean Bay dues being due at the

time you receive this newsletter.

December is a happy month and as most

of you know Elaine and I enjoy hosting

the Annual Christmas Party at our home in

Bridgewater. We enjoy seeing old friends

that have made this party so enjoyable

over all the years. This year I would like

to give a special invitation to our new

members and to some of the old members

that have never been here. I assure you that

you will have a great time and many laughs

with are famous “Yankee Swap”. Our home

is welcome to all and decorated for your

enjoyment. As always, good cheers, great

friends, warm spirits and fine food! May the

holiday spirits be with you!

The Lafayette House

109 Washington St. - Route 1, Foxboro, MA

November 15th 1:00PM

WORK IN PROGRESS

The Lafayette House, founded in 1784,

continues its well-earned tradition of fine

dining and service. Their continental cuisine,

coupled with their impeccable taste in service,

decor and location makes them an ideal spot

for Ocean Bay’s Annual Business Meeting,

discover why the Lafayette House continues

to make history.

This is a critical business meeting for Ocean

Bay! We have many issues to go over for 2010

to make it a great year for Ocean Bay. Please

make every effort to attend this meeting. The

location of this meet should make it an easy

location for Ocean Bay members coming

from all directions. Located just a few miles

south of Patriots Place on route 1 in Foxboro,

allows easy access from all directions including

Rhode Island.

Listed below are critical issues that we must

address for 2010:

• Calendar of Events for 2010

• The 2010 Northeast Zone Meet

Ocean Bay Financial State

• Studegram

• New Webpage

Directions:

From I-93 (Rt. 128) Dedham, take I-95 south,

Exit 1 toward Providence RI, 7.3 miles, merge

onto US-1 south via Exit 9 toward Foxboro/

Wrentham, 4.7 miles. The Lafayette House is on

the right.

From Rt. 495 merge onto US-1 north

Washington St via Exit 14A toward Wrentham

approx. 4 -5 miles, The Lafayette House is on

the left.

New Ocean Bay Chapter website coming soon!

The site will be up in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out for it.

We have been working on it for a while and are close to putting it up - the new site will be more

expandable and easier to update having a stronger emphasis on news stories, similar to how a

blog works . Our hope is that we can use it more as an extension of the newsletter offering a

place to post more photos from events, articles and news that does not fit into the newsletter

along with other events/news that happens in between newsletter issues. Initially the site will

have to be updated by me but soon we will be able to give certain OBC members access to

upload information, etc. directly to the website if they would like to help keep the site growing.

I know not all of you use the website and prefer just getting the newsletter and that’s fine, things

will continue as always with the newsletter, this is just another outlet to get your OBC information

and maybe help attract new members.

If you have any question or content you would like to get up on the site please email me

The Pease Collection of Historical Instruments

Review By Dennis Jolicoeur

It was a beautiful warm September day as

I drove west to Palmer Massachusetts for

Ocean Bay’s September Meeting at the

Steaming Tender Restaurant followed by

a visit to the Pease Collection of Historical

Instruments. I was not sure how this meet

would go since I did not know how many

Ocean Bays members were interested in

musical instruments. That goes to show

you how much I know! As I drove into the

Steaming Tender’s parking lot I did notice a

couple of Studes. I got out of my Hawk to

see who was around and look at the great

vintage 1915 Porter Steam Locomotive &

Tender that dominated the parking lot.

The first members that I ran into were

Chet and Ann Webster, Bill Cathcart and

Pete Fryer - my first thoughts were this is a

long distance for these members to travel,

maybe it is going to be a good meet! As I

stood there talking I was amazed at the

number of Studebakers that started pulling

into the parking lot. Before long even Dave

Thibeault showed up!

The “Steaming Tender” restaurant is situated

in a 19th century Romanesque style train

station. Owners Blake & Robin Lamothe

have been undergoing the restoration

project since 1987. The Palmer Railroad

Station was the 3rd largest station in

Massachusetts and was designed by the

world-renowned architect, Henry Hobson

Richardson, whose untimely death at the

age of 47 cut short a brilliant career. His

major works included the designs for Trinity

Ocean Bay’s Annual Christmas Party

As Always, Good Cheers, Great Friends, Warm Spirits and Fine Food!

At the home of Dennis & Elaine Jolicoeur

80 Pine Ridge Drive, Bridgewater MA

PLEASE RSVP

email: djolicoeur@oceanbaychapter.com, Phone: (508) 697-2635

The Ocean Bay Chapter cordially invites you to the Annual Christmas Party and Pot Luck

Dinner at the home of Dennis and Elaine Jolicoeur. The festivities will begin at 2:00PM

and will continue throughout the afternoon. Please come and enjoy the Christmas

season with good friends, fine food and warm spirits. Enjoy the fun of our now famous

Yankee Swap, a highlight of the afternoon.

Our Pot Luck Dinner will be served in late afternoon, followed by the Yankee Swap.

Ocean Bay will provide a cold cut platter, rolls and beverages. All club members are

asked to bring a “Special Dish” to enhance the buffet. Our first choice suggestion would

be a main course dish in order to provide a better variety for the table, but we will also

need desserts and salads. In order for us to get a better accurate count and to better

plan this event, we ask, that you RSVP by email or phone. Let us know the number of

guests you plan to bring and what you will be bringing for the Pot Luck Dinner.

Also, don’t forget to bring a gift for the Yankee Swap if you intend to participate. As

in recent years we request that you do not mark your gift for “His” or “Hers”. We have

found that the unknown is much more fun! Remember the better, more unique and

desirable the gift, the more fun is had at the Yankee Swap!

Review

By Dennis Jolicoeur

In spite of the weather we had over the last

few weekends in October, we had a beautiful

fall day for Ocean Bay’s Octoberfest on the

lawn of the Larz Anderson Auto Museum

in Brookline Massachusetts! A little cool if

you were in the shade but beautiful in the

sun! This year we also had a little change

in the Concours Classes with the addition

of a Packard Class for the first time which

drew in 6 beautiful post war Packards.

Packards as well as other makes that were

manufactured under the Studebaker name

have always been invited to attend Ocean

Bay’s Octoberfest but I believe making the

effort to personally invite the Packard Club

this year made a difference. This is a class

that maybe we should continue with for the

future, I would like to hear your thoughts on

this.

As for Studebakers; Studebaker enthusiasts

came from all over New England to make

this a great Octoberfest. It is great to see

so many old friends drive in at this event

each year. This is the 19th consecutive year

that Ocean Bay has been meeting on the

lawn of the museum. Many old friends and

their Studebakers have come and are now

gown. There is not a year that goes by that

I don’t think of old friends and their Studes

that once graced this lawn. It is great to

see our tradition continue each fall with

so many Studebakers and old friends as

well as many new friends get together

each October to make this a great end of

the year celebration. Such a success is a

great testimony to how great Studebaker

camaraderie really is! .

This year the event brought in just about

35 cars, which made for a great display of

Studebakers on the lawn of the Museum,

making this one of our best Concours

d’Elegance in a while. We had a pretty even

mix of Studes in each class, although I was

a little surprised that we didn’t have more

pre-war Studebakers. But all in all it was a

great day with friends.

The Museum exhibit this year “THE STYLE

AND INNOVATION OF THE AMERICAN

AUTOMOBILE “ was a great exhibit which

featured a look back at the last 80 years

highlighting some of Detroit’s most

elegant designs and amazing technological

breakthroughs. Cadillac, Nash, Studebaker,

Buick, design sketches, period fashion

provided by Lasell College, and design

concepts which included five great

photograph of Raymond Loewy’s Design

Studio at Studebaker.

State Capitol in Albany, Albany City Hall,

Hampden County Court House, Springfield

and the Marshall Field Building in Chicago.

Being a train lover, the authentic, old-world

ambiance of this historic Palmer Railroad

Station captured my imagination as I dined

under the station’s extensive canopies of

the lavish dining room with its exquisite

woodwork and views of passing trains.

The architecture of this train station is truly

magnificent!

Leaving the Steaming Tender Restaurant

we traveled up to the center of town to the

Pease Collection of Historical Instruments.

Nelson and Beverly Pease have a large

collection of antique reed organs packed

into a large storefront on Main Street

along with other pre-electric keyboard

instruments. Here our members toured

through the collection of these beautiful

old instruments and enjoyed the history of

the instruments as told by Beverly Pease.

From the Pease Collection of Historical

Instruments on Main Street we traveled

to the Pease private museum on Foundry

Street. This rustic museum is in a former

sawmill and has a 50 seat concert hall

where our Ocean Bay members enjoyed

an afternoon concert performed by Nelson

and Beverly Pease. The museum is packed

with self playing curiosities, player pianos

and tabletop roller organ, a harpsichord

and a 671 pipe Estey roller organ with a

collection of 1,000 rolls. We all had a great

day and enjoyed the hospitality of Nelson

and Beverly Pease.
