Avanti in Indiana


Recommended Posts

The Indiana chapter AOAI activity for August 19th is another return to Bendix Woods in New Carlisle Indiana. Former Studebaker president Sherwood Egbert's former home is now used as the Bendix Woods Nature Center. Sherwoods home is nestled near the Studebaker Tree sign (see photo below) and note the original STUDEBAKER tree sign at the upper left portion of the image, next to a portion of the huge proving ground track.

Years ago folks around northern Indiana called the area "Sherwood's Forest". Bendix Woods is located next to Bosch Automotive Proving Ground which everyone knows is the old Studebaker Proving Ground. Bosch has given us permission to take a few laps around the Proving Ground. We did "Return to Sherwood's Forest" two years ago and 23 Avanti's and their owners got to have the thrill of a lifetime. Pictures from it are on the webpage. http://www.geocities.com/mikesavanti2

The event is being sponsored by Indiana AOAI members Mike and Fran Lenyo.

This time we are calling our activity "Sherwoods Reunion". So, if you and your Avanti are in the area at that time we'd love to extend an invitation to join the fun.
