Studebaker Car Club Concours – September 2012
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 12:03

The Club held their 2012 Concours on Sunday 2nd September at Fort Lytton National Park. Located on the Southern bank of the Brisbane River, 18 klms downstream from Brisbane City, this site played a strategic military role as a hidden fortress guarding the developing Brisbane colony against attacks from enemy ships.This site was a perfect place to have the Studebakers on display with the Brisbane River as a background and the beautiful Queensland weather.

The weekend started with dinner on Saturday night at the Colmslie Hotel with 50 Studebaker members and friends attending. On Sunday a total of 34 Studebakers were on display, plus a number of cars from the Pontiac, Morris and Muscle Car Clubs. A special treat was to have Bill Beverly’s superb 1937 Packard 120 Roadster on display.
