I'm sad to say, this was our final day for trips with the Studebaker Drivers Club International Meet. We had a wonderful time with all of them and hope to see them again in 2017. Three gentlemen gave me a fabric club patch which I will sew onto my canvas travel bag from their club in Sweden - Studebakerklubben - Sweden. I was thrilled because I am of Swedish decent.
Our passengers today were from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Sweden, as well as many of the U. S. states.
Of course, headed east, we had to make another stop at Rise 'n Roll bakery. What bakery wouldn't be thrilled to have 2 buses stop in and do some shopping for goodies. They served 67 passengers in record time.
It was then time to move on to the museum, where they all received a superb box lunch to enjoy at their leisure.
Even if you are not a car enthusiast, you have to appreciate these specimens.

A new friend, Johann, from Australia.
There is always one on each bus that has to tease, and today it was the fella on the left.
A Frank Lloyd Wright Car.
Of course, an Avanti and a Studebaker poster.
