    I'll be heading there on 2/17, fwiw.

     

    Last year I think many of us had fun looking at the Webcam they had setup prior to the opening. We were able to sneak a peek at the Outback. Here's the main webcam page, looks like they've rearranged the floorspace a bit this year. http://www.chicagoautoshow.com/neatstuff/webcams/

    Is this of any interest to you? Maybe some Studebaker stuff there? ...And it's free!

    Just poking my head in, will check it out.

     

     

    BTW, the world's largest all-Studebaker swap meet is held every year, usually on the first weekend in March, at the York Farigrounds in PA: http://www.yorkfair.org/expo.htm . I used to go regularly but haven't been since 2002. There's really nothing my car needs at the moment except for new or NOS rear seat upholstery; everything else would be spares. I should rephrase that; it needs to be driven a little more!

     

    Thanks,

    Ed

    You're gonna put Nitrous on the Stude? :o)

    I'm recalling the phrase from a recent bad movie. LOL

    That's correct. I was lucky to find a set of New Old Stock front seat upholstery (vinyl) for the car a couple of years ago - it was in the inventory of a former Indiana Stude dealer. It had held up very well for being almost 40 years old; I've put one small (1/2") crack in the driver's seat which should be repairable come the warm weather.

     

    Nitrous on that old Champion Six? I'd probably end up cracking the head, but I'm sure it'd be fun while it lasted. ;-p

    Who's going? I'm hoping to be there Saturday.

    Signed up for the Subaru free tickets for Monday evening, 2/7.

    I rec'd. a large postcard in the mail inviting me to see the Tribeca at the Philly Auto show. It directed me to a website to enter the listed PIN and sign up for tickets on 2/7, 2/8, or 2/9. I then rec'd. a confirmation to exchange for the tickets. The free tickets are good from 5:30 pm to closing.

     

    DaveM ('03 OBW)

     

    P.S. My Mom ('02 OBW) also rec'd. the postcard. My brother ('05 OBW) did not receive the invite. All 3 were bought at the same dealer and all are registered at my.subaru.com

     

    P.P.S. My brother rec'd. an email invite for free ski tickets but neither my Mom or I rec'd. it.

    I got the free ski tix invite, which while thoughtful is useless for me. Growing up in SC the closest I ever got to skis was driving a boat while pulling people on water skis.

     

    I have gotten Phila. Flower Show tix from SoA the last two years running. They are a pricier ticket than Auto Show tix, so I don't mind paying for the Auto Show when I get comped for teh Flower Show.

  • dcm61dcm61 Posts: 1,560
    I got the Flower Show invites also. I was going to go last year but the night of the show I instead drove half way to Norfolk to depart on a 10 day cruise the next day. :-)

    ...I got the e-mail invite to the Auto Show. Pity it's on school nights; it'll make it very tough for us to go. The missus suggested we bring the famous Cozy Coupe WRC and its driver down to the SoA stand but that'll be past his dinner-and bedtime.

    My Mom got another invite (email this time, paper last time) to the Philly Auto Show. She had already registered for tickets a couple of weeks ago.

     

    I just received an email invite to the Baltimore Auto Show (it also includes Jacksonville, Raleigh, and Atlanta in the drop down box). I'm about 90 miles northeast of Baltimore.

    Looks like Bob and I might make it to Philly after all. Saturday, though, work is too crazy for me to get any time off.

     

    Anyone going?

    Did you know Subaru invented the crossover segment in 1994 - with the introduction of its legendary Subaru Outback?

     

    I think owners of AMC Eagles might take exception of that statement. In fact I know they would. Check this site.

     

    http://www.users.nac.net/gr/eagleweb/main.htm

     

    The only thing Subaru invented was the term "sport utility wagon," not that "class of vehicle."

    I might go if we're able to get into the B9. Don't want to make the trip to just look at it from 10 feet away, especially since I was just in Philly last weekend.

     

    But if Bob wear's his helmet, I'll go just to see that!!! ;-)

    Sorry Dennis. If you go, you'll just have to enjoy my bald head this time. :)

    wait, haven't we discussed this before? The BRAT was available before '80 and had 4wd available and what about the Subaru 360?

     

    Though, this probably belongs in the Cafe or MTM...

     

    -Brian
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Bob - c'mon, now, Subaru had the first sporty utility wagon in 1973 with its MY1974 4WD Leone.

     

    In fact that wagon had factory skid plates, 4WD, and even low range gearing!

     

    Subaru was first, period. It wasn't the Outback, but it certainly wasn't AMC either.

    Everytime I see that album, I choke at the 'intersecting bodies' picture of Annie and me.....

    My godson's 1st anniversary of his Gotcha Day is coming this spring.

    looks like a plum (metallic red or purple or perhaps black) colored B9 at the Chicago show. http://www.chicagoautoshow.com/neatstuff/webcams/

    (pick Subaru from the drop down list)

    Brian, it looks like the Root beer-colored Tribeca cut-away they had at Detroit.

     

    Bob
  • subearusubearu Posts: 3,613
    There appears to be 3 there - 1 cutaway one, and 2 regular ones to the left of that. All the same brown purple (hard to tell from the lack of lighting).

     

    -Brian
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Same color was at NAIAS, and then again at Philly. They also had a light green/gray on the stand, which I really liked.
