It all started back in 1972 when the 1st official meeting of the Ontario Chapter SDC  took place in September 1972 at the Bramalea Lions Club located in

Brampton, Ontario. The Ontario Chapter started off with 16 members in 1972 mainly situated in the Greater Toronto Area growing up to over

150 members in 2005 and presently has 82 members in Ontario. Many Studebaker Enthusiasts have come and

gone over the last 50 years but they all had many things in common, a deep passion for classic cars and in particular Studebaker

which was the oldest manufacturer of Transportation vehicles in the world when the factory doors closed back in March 1966.

Many Studebaker "Diehards" have also remained to this day as members to continue their sometimes lifelong infatuation with all things Studebaker.

Many members aren't sure where the old car hobby will go in the next 20 years with many many of the original members passing on as the

latest generation seems to be more interested in Social Media Platforms which watching the world moving towards Electric self-driving cars. 

One thing I do know the current Ontario SDC Members will continue to drive their classic Studebakers the old fashioned way "petal to the metal"

and enjoying the thrill of driving a classic car down country roads.

Although our 50th Anniversary is 2 months away we are in the planning stage and if you return to this webpage you will see what is planned

and if interested how to attend these celebrations which will be held in Napanee, Ontario at the Strathcona paper centre from 29-31 July 2022.

 We will welcome all current or former Ontario SDC members and their families along with other SDC, Avanti Club, Antique Studebaker Club Members and any

Studebaker enthusiasts or former SDC members that wish to join in on the once in a lifetime celebrations. See you down the Studebaker Road!


Yours in Studebaker Cruising
