Stutz sticker
What happened in 2002?

During 2002, the Stutz Homepage was still located on a server of Fortunecity.
It was free, and easy to maintain, but there were so many pop-ups, that you hardly found the stutzy things,
so I decided to pay for the homepage, and to make it free from pop-ups, or any other ads.
In December 2002, the homepage was moved to the actual address,

In 2002, 12 Stutzes were added to the registry, and a lot of sales-literature.
In addition to that, I came in contact with Virgil Exner, jr., and Jim Milliken, next to all the other stutzy contacts.

Coming to the additions:

In the preview I stated that there will be added three cars to the registry,
well, now there are some more:
1973 Blackhawk, owned by Bill Boelcke
1974 Blackhawk, owned by Phil Iturbide
1975 Blackhawk, owned by Jim Milliken
1981 Blackhawk, owned by Jim Milliken
1986 Victoria (hopefully I will be able to add an extra website, soon!)

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Mr. Virgil Exner, jr.
His father designed the modern Stutz, he is a car-designer, too.
So you will find some new information on the following websites:
Virgil M. Exner, sr.
Virgil M. Exner, jr.
and I have added some websites, showing some of the cars, designed by Exner
(please follow the links on the Exner websites!)

Jim Milliken mailed me a lot of interesting Stutz-pictures, which he had taken in Saudi Arabia,
most of them you will find here:
Jim Milliken's photo album

So, you see, I had to renew the Hall of Fame...

I'm not able to list all websites, each one was renewed, but on the following websites you will find some interesting new information, and pictures:
1972 Blackhawk Humptrunk!!!
1974 Blackhawk, now owned by G. Bianco
1976 Blackhawk, now owned by R. Howe
1977 Blackhawk, now owned by A. Bayowski
1977 Blackhawk, owned by J. D. Frye
Pontiac Grand Prix (more to come!)

A lot of Stutz fans are fans of Elvis Presley,
so I split the Presley website into five different websites, and there are a lot of new pictures.

I want to thank all for the super-support!
Special thanks to:
Ken Bist
Bengt Dahlgren
Virgil Exner, jr.
Jim Milliken
