2018 IDYSD

International Drive Your Studebaker Day falls on the second Saturday of September.  Fortunately, Packy’s Sports Grill has a Cruise Night on the second Saturday of every month which was ideal for a Sunshine Chapter outing.

We met in the Lowe’s parking lot on W Palmetto Park Road and State Road 7 (US 441).  Then went in caravan to Packy’s west of SR7.  The cars in the caravan were:

  • Butch Figurella’s ’61 Champ
  • Rich Schomaker’s ’66 Commander
  • Ed Ellis’s ’53 Commander
  • Rich Schomaker’s ’64 Avanti
  • Bob Ewart’s ’50 2R5 pickup

Later we were joined by Sebby Amanta in a ’54 Commander and Jake Kaywell’s ’62 GT Hawk.  Butch claimed that we had 8 Studebakers there, but only listed 7.

We had a lot of fun looking at all the other cars/trucks.  There were about 20 people from our chapter there.  It was a little hard to count since they kept moving around.
