Thanks for the interesting link.
I know of dual and quad exhausts. That '53 C has octo-exhausts.

67258I thought this was the fastest car ever that started out as a Studebaker. Heard it went 311, but couldn't back it up with a return run.

Thanks for the link. Always fun to read an overall positive reporting involving Studebaker.:) Although I have not followed this kind of competition with a lot of enthusiasm, I always enjoy seeing such reverence and acknowledgement regarding the impact Studebaker made in automotive history.:!:

The car also prompted a rule change when it was decided that running the eight exhaust pipes all the way out the back was the same as a belly pan which the class did not allow. Hence a rule change. Ahead of their time and a car we all admire and look to for inspiration. Hope the Hawk we run next year lives up to the standard set by the SanChez and Cagle team.

Nice read!

I wonder if '66's in the salt belt went any faster as they got older once the holes started forming in the trunk floor.
