Interesting...wonder if any of the racing Studes from these events still exist? Caught the mention of the Isuzu Bellett, too; in the final days of the Studebaker automotive division that was one of the Japanese cars Studebaker Canada intended to import and distribute--possibly rebadging them as Studebakers. There were apparently two Belletts brought in which did have Studebaker badging affixed after arriving. Now there'd be a car to confound cruise-night organizers...and SDC judges to boot!

BTW, my first "good" car was an Isuzu, a 1991 Stylus; still the nicest-driving car I've ever owned, and if it hadn't rusted out then got rear-ended while parked, I'd probably still be driving it. Sweet car.
