Bellingham, Washington ...Zone Meet 2005

The Antique Studebaker Tour in Bellingham was well attended and a complete success. Russ and Hazel Haggen hosted the ASC members and organized a great two day event. The Friday tour wound through the county to Blaine to gather at the home of Don Scaggs, retired professor of music who has a massive collection of pianos and organs, all playable and in regular use. He enjoys demonstrating the differences between a clavichord and a harpsichord or baby grand piano. There is a full-sized, working pipe organ with over six hundred pipes that has beautiful sound. Two smaller pipe organs also are in full tone and one was originally in a Bellingham Church. Barb took her violin along and accompanied Don for an appreciative audience. Friday evening was spent at the Haggen's where BBQ and salads were consumed at an alarming rate!  The Saturday tour left from the Hampton Inn and toured to the Pickett House in historic old town and then on to the City Hall where individual photos were taken. The crowd were then entertained at the Bellingham Museum where a 
motorcycle history lesson was learned. This is a great display featuring many of the historical motorcycles of the county along with the memorabilia of their past. We saddled up the crowd and drove north to the Lynden Museum where lunch was served. Time was allotted for a tour of the history of Lynden in the well-done displays. Mid afternoon saw the 19 beautiful pre-war cars head back to Bellingham for a tour of the Aircraft Museum at the Bellingham Airport. Back at the hotel, the banquet was prepared and served to the hungry throng. Awards were presented and the raffle prizes dispersed. Hazel sewed a beautiful quilt with antique Studebaker panels pictured in the squares. This piece of art was auctioned, the
proceeds going to help with the presentation of next year's tour in Chilliwack, B.C. Attending this event were Ron and Sherry Watson from Scottsdale, Arizona with their 27 Dictator sedan easily the long distance travelers!
Sunday was the Whatcom County Chapter Mini Meet in Ferndale and was attended by a large contingent of the pre-war cars. The show and shine had 65 vehicles registered and on a beautiful day, were blessed with the attendance of the Antique Studebakers. Awards presented were to Milo Glaser for "Best Pre-war" for his 1941 Commander and to Barney Vinegar for his 1926 Roadster for "Best in Show, Studebaker".

Our thanks to the Haggen family for all their hard work making this tour a smashing success!
