President's Message


Greetings all. First off, all the best wishes for the upcoming holidays and another new year. I certainly hope 2024 finds you well and ready for another season of cruising and reconnecting with friends and family. Once again 2024 calendars are available from our treasurer Dave Moxham, however due to rising costs: US dollar exchange, postage etc. we need to charge $25.00 this year which includes membership still at $5.00 and a calendar. Additional calendars are $10.00 each. Years ago, we used to make a few dollars profit on the calendars but lately we are happy to break even. This year's July feature is from Brian Chappell from Bedford Nova Scotia. His 1975 Avanti II was originally purchased by Charles F. Pratt who was executive Vice President of Studebaker during the close out in 1966. And what a great picture. Congratulations Brian. So, lets hope another of our members submits their Avanti for the 2025 issue! In other news we have decided due to financial constraints to cease our contribution to the Ron Hall Avanti at the Studebaker International Museum. However, we will continue to offer our usual donation to the International Meet which will be held in Detroit for 2024. Hopefully as many of you as possible will be able to attend as this location is relatively central. Information on the event is available in the latest Avanti Magazine or online at Some preliminary information is attached FYI. As always, we welcome our new members and hope you who have been with us over the years will continue your interest and support.

All for now and hope to see many of you in Detroit next September.
