Easter 2016 24th New Zealand Nationals - Cromwell.
This was an amazing week end with weather that was better that could be asked for. It was amazing to see 51 Studebakers parked on the top of the clyde hydro dam with the sun shinning down. The trip to the Hayes engineering works and homestaed made us aware of just what those before us had done for this country. A big thanks to Murray, Jacky, Ray for a very well organised Nationals, well done and many thanks. I know my family had a great time.
21 June 2014 Mid Winter Dinner.
Although smaller numbers than last year this was a good night with a few laughs and the sharing of food with friends. The boys even managed to find a man cave for the night. Thanks to all for the great food and  Terry & Sharyn for being such great hosts as always.
25 May 2014 Canterbury Akaroa Run.
This was a great run with 8 cars and 16 members making the trip for Fish and Chips and a refreshment on the way home in Duvauchelles. The only down side of the day was the wind and a broken gesr shift pin in my car, all part of the fun.
24 May 2014 The Captain Cook Run.
This was a run to Picton, where members from different areas meet and spend some time with our local Blenheim members and generally had a good time even getting out on the sea for a while. Sounds like a lot of fun.
18 May 2014 AGM.
The Club AGM was well attended and many thanks to those who made the effort with some members from Nelson and Timaru making the journey for this event. The committee and offices were voted back into office, so no changes this year.

23rd New Zealand Studebaker Nationals, New Plymouth, Taranaki  2014
A big thanks to out to all involved in organising this event especially Doreen and those who made the effort to attend especially our friends from over the ditch. With out you all putting the effort in to attend and orginise this would not happen. We saw 43 cars at Concours and 120 attendees which is a great turn out. We were lucky with the weather in that the rain stayed away when needed which allow every one to enjoy New Plymouth. I hope to have some photos to add to the site very soon. Any one who has images and would like to send them in please send to
22 ~ 23 February 2014 Summer Run to Oamaru.
The run was a great success with 24 members and 12 Studebakers present to enjoy a relaxed week end where cars and friendship were the major things. Thanks to the great turn out from the Otago/Southland section of the club well done.
07 ~ 09 February 2014 Top of the South Weekend.
This was a run up to Dave and Gail's place to enjoy a week end away from the day to day stress which was taken up by a number of people and driving a variety of cars, sounds like a great time was had by all as per normal. Thanks Dave and Gail well done.
