Our SDC Chapter was chartered in 1981. We've had some great club adventures over the past 40+ years. We've hosted the 31st SDC Int'l Meet in Dearborn, Michigan in 1995, hosted a Crossroads Zone Meet in Dundee, Michigan in 2014 and one in Archbold, Ohio in 2018. We invite you to contact us about our club and to join us as a guest at one of our many monthly events.
Here is a photo taken at one of our fun events.
Our SDC Chapter hosts monthly activities at various locations in Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio.
We've toured the Piquette Avenue Ford Model-T Museum, adjacent to the 1910 era EMF/Studebaker Building property.
We toured a restored vintage Texaco Gas Station-Garage and antique auto memorabilia collection on State Route 109.
Mike has owned this 1963 Studebaker Avanti R2.5 since 1988. A real sharp classic !

Gerry was always showing folks his car and giving rides. He was a happy Studebaker owner.

She passed away on June 26, 2021 in Sylvania, Ohio while holding the hand of her husband of forty years, Ronald R. Bush. They were married in 1981.

Also great-grandson Kai and eight step-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and stepdaughter Connie Militano and stepson Charles Bush. Myrna’s lifelong passion was genealogy; she also enjoyed reading, sitting on her porch watching birds, visiting with family, and shared her husband’s interest in motorcycles and classic cars by taking extensive trips to events all over the country. She leaves behind many beloved cousins, friends, neighbors and a shy tuxedo cat named Sarah. Her loving family will miss her sweet laugh, generous heart, and kind spirit.

William H. Peacocke joined the WLEC about 10 years ago. His love of Studebakers goes back to his earlier working years when he drove a C-K Coupe as a daily driver. This big man & his big smile will be missed at our club events. R.I.P. dear car buddy.
