    If you go to and click on Publications, you will see a tab that says Judges Guidelines. Click on that tab and download the 2017 Guidelines currently. Steve M may tell us differently, but I doubt if you can get a 2018 before Philly in Feb. Let me also recommend that you attend a Judging School. Even if you never judge, it helps to know how the judging process works when restoring and showing.

    Renwaltoys, Since this has been your only post and you have not revisited it since Oct. 20, I'm assuming you have moved on. But if you happen to come back on the forum, would you please post a picture of the front bumper area of your 65 Corvette. Also, mainly to satisfy my curiosity, how did you find out you had received this deduction? Thanks in advance. Phillip
  3. The worst of times

    Joe, Great story! Having seen your beautiful car run perfectly on tour when others were falling by the wayside, I hope you weren't too put off! I was on the other side of the clip board (actually, iPad)at Pinehurst this year. Three days before the event I was invited to be a guest judge (since a European judge could not make it) and told three possible classes I might judge. I spent most of those three days preparing. Naturally, I wound up being assigned to another class. Fortunately, the AACA Guidelines got me through it... That and having judged a similar class the year before at Hershey. Anyway, you have a beautiful car! Be proud!

    Go to Under Publications, click on Judges Guidelines to download it. Look at pages 3-10 and 3-11, HPOF Certification and Original HPOF Certification forms, and decide for yourself.

    I thought the remembrances of Herb Oakes was a nice and proper addition.

    No, not the teens and twenties. Basically, the models from Aussie plants, which we actually saw and I could get a picture: Holden, Valiant, various Utes, etc. I spoke with owners. I see you are from Bowral. Are there websites with info on early 20th century cars in Australia?

    Looking forward to it! While in Bournemouth we used to go to the auto jumble at the parade grounds and to the shows on the boardwalk. Learned a lot just sitting around talking. They loved my accent and I loved their's. I bought several classic car books in Beaulieu to further my education.

    I worked in Bournemouth the summer of 1997 and Fareham in 2002. Spent time off traveling, especially to car museums, auto jumbles, etc. If you still get our Members Parade, I'm starting a short series on Australian cars this month. We spent a month down under this past winter.

    In the southern end of the New Forest at Beaulieu, Hampshire, England. It is about a 40 minute drive west from Southampton and an hour east from Bournemouth on the B3056, which is called Hatchet Lane. If you are in southern England any time, the National Motor Museum is well worth the trip! Terry, I keep thinking I'll get back across the pond some day. Thanks for posting the pictures. 😀
  12. First Aid Kit

    We are fortunate holding our Spring meet at the Charlotte Motor Speedway as there is a medical unit on site. It would be a good idea for those in charge at a meet to know how to respond to a medical emergency.

    Best I can do is confirm that there are some Studebaker vendors in the Orange Field this year. Pick up a program booklet when you arrive. They are free.
  14. Fall Autofair Sept. 21 - 24

    The best way to determine that is through the vendor program booklet, but I won't see that until they are delivered on the 20th. I've got a call into the office to see if I can access the program data. We have had some vendors with Studebaker parts in recent years. Are you looking for someone or something in particular?
