2020, 2021 and beyond

Greetings! The Hawkeye Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club is an active group of Studebaker enthusiasts from all over Iowa and beyond. Traditionally, we meet on the third Sunday of the month except for December and January. Our meetings are hosted by members and held in different locations around the state of Iowa. We gather for lunch, fellowship, and often a small adventure. Our adventures have included museums, private collections of all sorts, parks, historic locations, and other neat things around the state. Driving our Studebakers to the meetings is not required, but it sure makes it more fun. In 2020 with the COVID pandemic, our member's health and safety were paramount, but we still wanted to stay in touch. We, as a group, adapted quickly and held most of our meetings via Zoom. In 2021 we hope to hold our meetings around Iowa as we did before. If you enjoy a good old fashion road trip with other fun people, please reach out to any one of our officers or club members and join us. Owning a Studebaker is not a requirement. It's a fact, Studebaker people are the most approachable people! If you are interested in Studebakers and live in Iowa or anywhere for that matter, we would sure like to meet you. Gary Thoren Iowa Hawkeye Chapter Vice President.


Yes that's right the IA Hawkeye Chapter is now on Facebook. Go look for us and give us LIKE to keep up on what we are doing and all things STUDEBAKER! We are titled "Iowa Hawkeye Studebaker Club SDC" Hoping this is one more tool to keep us all connected and hopefully get some new people interested in our wonderful cars and the PEOPLE!

The Popularity of Studebaker Models

1955 President Speedster

I recently received the latest issue of Danbury Mint collectable models and was surprised to see the 1955 Studebaker President Speedster has been sold out.  Only 5000 of these cars were reproduced in this 1/24th scale.  This must mean that Studebaker is still a popular collector item.  Congratulation to all of you that purchased this fine replica.  I have mine (#1252 of 5000)!!!


Zone Meet Compilation Video

Here is the compilation video as shown at the end of the Awards Banquet. It includes video and still footage of both days of the 2011 Zone Meet.

The song in the video is "Studebaker" originally written by Warren Zevon, as sung by Jordan Zevon.
