Membership is around 500 with affiliated clubs throughout Australia. The club itself is affiliated with the Studebaker Drivers Club Of U.S.A. which has a membership in excess of 12,000. Interchange of information and the buying power of such a large group enables reproduction of reasonably priced parts both for restoration and maintenance. Parts availability is excellent.
The club meets on the third Monday of each month at the East Bentleigh Sporting & Recreation Club, (62 Mackie Rd, Bentleigh East), commencing at 8:00pm till approximately 10:30 pm (includes supper). Social outings are arranged on a regular basis and include picnics, observation runs, scenic drives, economy runs, picture nights, weekends away, an annual Concours d’ Elegance, and a bi-annual National Convention. Being a family club, children of all ages are generally catered for.
The club has a comprehensive library for the benefit of research and members’ information. A monthly Magazine, “Stude News”, is produced by the club and circulated containing news and information from around Australia. This also acts as a medium for the sale and purchase of vehicles and parts, along with articles of interest.
Ownership of a Studebaker is not a prerequisite for membership, participation and membership can put you in touch with vehicles and spare parts at realistic prices. These are not often advertised outside club circles. Advice and assistance are readily available to members from experts within the club.
