Combined Grand STuTZ Seabrook and Keels & Wheels Agenda
This event is about getting together as STuTZ enthusiasts. We want to have a good showing of judged and non-judged cars, but encourage everyone, with or without a car, to consider the trip to the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast.
Our 2013 Grand STuTZ will begin on May 1, 2013, and be held in conjunction with the 18th Annual Keels & Wheels Concours d’Elegance in Seabrook, Texas. The Keels & Wheels will be honoring STuTZ as the automotive marque and they are excited about the STuTZ Club participation. All of the STuTZ cars will be displayed as a group on the show field on Saturday and Sunday. You will receive a separate mailing from the Keels & Wheels with their information and forms. You must return both the Grand STuTZ and the Keels & Wheels forms.
The Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake is the headquarters hotel for the Grand STuTZ, as well as the Keels & Wheels event. You will find information on room rates for the Hilton and other area lodging options in the information you will receive in the mail. Please make your reservations early.
