The 2016 Grand STuTZ Kokomo, Indiana is in the history book.  40 members and guests attended and 10 STuTZ cars were on display.

The Indiana Region CCCA had invited the STuTZ cars to be displayed in conjunction with their “Grand Classic”.

The club wants to thank the members that attended the events.  We were glad to see the number of members that attended without displaying a car.  One goal of this Grand STuTZ was to encourage members to attend for the social benefits as well as displaying a STuTZ car.

The STuTZ Centennial Celebration held in 2011 was a great success.  The weather was good, the cars were beautiful, the activities were well planned, and the members had a wonderful time.  Everyone will remember the Stutz Hispano Suiza race, the parade lap, 50 + STuTZ cars on display, the parade lap, and the banquet in the STuTZ factory.  Did I mention the parade lap?

Club members continued the celebration during 2011 by attending many events.  They won some awards but more importantly, they won the appreciation of the event organizers and the public.
