Minutes from the Los Angeles chapter of SDC meeting on
July 26, 2018
Denny’s Restaurant, Tampa Avenue, Northridge
A shortened business meeting was called to order by president Howard
Brown at 7:30 pm, with a record-breaking 28 members and guests in
attendance. Guests included John Lapin, James Powers, Jerry and Ernie
Bailey, and Jim Ober’s grandson, Michael.
No formal treasurer’s report was given but Dennis O’Brien announced
"we have more money than we had last month," before Howard Brown
indicated that a bank statement was due any day.
Dexter Cannon read the minutes from the June meeting.
Business discussed included
–The Northridge Bob’s Big Boy where we held our March 2018 car show
has been sold. It will remain a Bob’s Big Boy. Howard plans to go meet
the new manager and confirm our 2019 booking with them.
–More volunteers are needed for the Pacific Southwest Zone Meet
registration desk, which our chapter will handle as one of the hosts.
Specifically we need sign ups for Thursday and Friday shifts.
–Howard reported on delivery of the recently sold 1950 Studebaker.
Dennis O’Brien and Howard did that delivery, using the club trailer.
Howard reported that he drove the car onto the trailer using its own
power, as opposed to the winch that was used when they first rescued
the car. He also reported that the buyer was delighted when he saw it
for the first time.
Dennis gleefully added "and I didn’t have to crawl through the mud."
Photos from that delivery can be seen in our July 2018 newsletter.
–Plans for a Studebaker caravan to the International meet have been
tabled because our attending members are planning to fly.
–Howard also reported that Avanti #1 is now on display at the LeMay
Car Museum in Tacoma Washington. Attendees at the International Meet
would have an opportunity to see it.
–Plans to hold our 2019 Drive Your Studebaker Day event at Simi Town
Center shopping mall are confirmed. An alternate venue of the
Northridge Bob’s Big Boy was mentioned as a potential back up, should
the Simi venue fall through.
–Jim Ober introduced his grandson and shared a trophy that his red and
white Golden Hawk had won at the Glendale Cruise Night. The new city
manager selected his car as one of ten, explaining that she told him
"the car spoke to her."
–Jim Ober also explained that the Coachmen would be looking for a new
cruise night venue and that the August 4 cruise would be the last one
at the Simi Town Center mall parking lot.
The remainder of the meeting was turned over to Paul McKeehan, who
presented a talk about his days as a stylist for Studebaker, with a
slide show featuring 39 pictures. More about that presentation to be
in the August 2018 newsletter.
