I went to the studebaker racing forum, because I could answer a lot of the questions that were asked. But they don't seem to want new people on there. If any one is interested in my information you can email me with a phone # and I will be happy to give the information.

That's a cool article. Thanks for sharing.

Here's a similar modification that popped up on Flickr when searching terms "Studebaker" and "Bonneville"

Dick, the "hospitality" of other online communities makes one really appreciate this one, for sure.:)

Dick, I would say that Sonny would get bent if he read your response. Everyone that is into Stude racing is welcome over there, although a few are slightly opinionated.

That Yellow no. 749 is breathtaking. If I were to modify my 54 Coupe, it would have to take on this style. That is just an incredible looking machine.

Belmont Sanchez became a Studebaker dealer in Long Beach. His dealer modified 1955 convertibles were featured in May '55 Motor Life and Jan. '76 Turning Wheels.

The Sanchez car looks to be a sedan body, look how long the rear side window is compared to the yellow car. Or maybe they used a sedan top when they put the chopped top back on.Also look at the rear wheel well. It looks taller at the top of the well on the Sanchez car. If you were to put those louvers on the yellow car they would be into the wheel well lip. Just my observation.

How ugly. I hope they did not butcher a 63 Avanti for this eyesore.

Dwain; The Sanchez Studebaker owner was Belmont's father. Some body said something about him getting in the car. Impossible, we called him Beachball because he was very big and round. Most of the records set with the car were set by Joe locosta. The told the story about when Joe went down the salt on the top, he took the time to clean out the fuel injecters befor he shut the engine off. I have a lot more info about Belmont and a lot of others of that time period. I lived it.

Thanks AJ. I'm not bent at all, just a tad stunned, never heard that before, had no idea that someone felt that way. Since I started the forums, about 5 years, I've never turned anyone away or intentionally put someone off the forums, never. Hell, never even had to "raise my voice" there. We have 309 registered users and 14,391 posts, as of this minute..

Anyway, ANYone who is interested in high performance Studebakering, or NOT, is completely, without ANY obligation, totally welcome on Racing Studebakers. Heck, I've worked very hard to promote the site in that manner. A fella doesn't even have to join, just enjoy. In fact, I try to welcome each new member and tell them to just jump right on in there and post ANYthing useful, informative, interesting, thought provoking, or just a plain ol' narrative that would get everyone chewin-the-stick. True, I just can't write each & every new member, but trust me, I try.

I think the racing forums have illuminated and hashed out some pretty darn good subjects, awesome information, actually useful to those not even interested in high performance. As any forum, yep, we do have a couple of opinionated members, but they're members here too and are gentlemen 99.8% of the time.

Hope nobody else feels like that.. If so, [u]please</u> contact me personally and I'll do my darnedest to fix it!

Dick, I'm truly sorry that you feel like that. I'd like a chance to correct the problem(s). I truly had no idea as you've never contacted me about this. Please contact me personally and I will make EVERY effort to correct this. Thanks in advance!

Sorry 'bout that! I think what you mean was, when you tried to join the forum as a member, the automated response system told you that you were "banned", right? It KILLS me that I have to ban soooo many IP addresses, but unfortunately due to the spammers, I have no choice. Your ISP must have been one of those that had a partial ban, (only certain addresses out of the many, many utilized by the various ISP). I'm glad that you were able find a way around the spammers to join!
