That '53 with the Golden Hawk engine and 4-speed was awesome (unfortunately so was the asking price, although someone actively looking for a car like that could probably do a lot worse than to just buy it, if it runs as good as it looks...) Someone told me that that was a GTO hood scoop grafted into the stock hood to clear the blower pulley. Awesome metalwork there. Looked like a R2 Lark/Hawk bracket, but the engine had a "PS" number and a McCulloch blower. Does the R2 bracket set the blower a little lower, is that why that was done?

I really liked that "survivor" '62 Lark hardtop (the blue/green one with the Regal trim.) If anything I think the Regal trim is more attractive than the Daytona. Poor car was missing two spark plug wires though.

BTW that's me on the left in the back row of the group pic, behind Jeff Bradel, in case you cared.

I recognized you, Nate, and several others. Hopefully ALL can be ID'd.

I have a '62 Regal just like that one...

I can't wait to get into it. It has the obligatory 8 spark plug wires. It really needs a quality repaint and I'll probably do that in the original color. But I need to finish the '63 first. It has abbreviated trim which also looks good (IMHO)

:) Nate: I'm too lazy to do so, but if you'll go back through all the pictures of Lancaster, you'll see where Leonard Shepherd posted a picture of that '53 with the GTO hood scoop, following my request that someone do so when a question was raised about the car back then.

I related the story of the car, dating to circa 1969-1970 here in Indianapolis, when it was "built" by my friend Howe Clark; Aero Blue here on the Forum, although he rarely posts. This was when Howe and I were both teaching auto shop here at Arsenal Technical High School in Indianapolis (me, mechanics; he, auto body).

Howe originally built the car with 1957 blower setup mounting brackets and needed hood clearance for the higher profile of the 1957 arrangement. That his why he grafted the GTO hood scoop onto the car. Yes, he did a masterful job of it!

It has apparently been changed to a later R2 water pump manifold sometime since then, but it is the same car. :DBP

I stopped at Hooters on the way out of town, as I always do;) I believe the girl behind the wheel is Ashlynn; they're a fun bunch. But the best parts was, as indicated on the sign: Buy 20, get 10 free!

Unfortunately they meant wings, not girls...[:I] But the wings are great too![^]

I don't have a garage yet for my '53 when I get it done so I didn't ask. I did hear him say he was trying to sell it but "Not very hard."

By the way, in Dave Arnold's (barnlark) picture of Bill Glass, the other fellow in the white sweatshirt is Frank McCarthy, for many years the chairman who puts this swap meet together and the one who arranged the swap meet at Lancaster. A tireless supporter who deserves our thanks.

Thanks for the pictures, wish I could have been there, that's a fun meet, although it wouldn't seem right with nice weather!

What is that strange little white open car?

Trouble with Hooters is although the scenery is great the food isn't. We had a place near here called High Beams which was much like Hooters except it had really good food.

This Packard truck was there again.

Bams,

That was Caitlin behind the wheel. She was our server. I'll be sending a framed photo of Grace and her admirers to the York Hooters as soon as I mat and frame it.

By the way, this was the first time I went to the York swap meet where I didn't buy anything. Grace is complete except for a trunk mat. Phantom Auto Works is still working on trying for the correct material to make them. Nick took lots of pictures of our car's interior to post on the Phantom web site.

With the state of the economy and not being certain of my job (even though I'm the only one who does what I do in the entire global Tyco Electronics), I'm not working on another car, Studebaker or otherwise. Besides, I have plenty of projects waiting for me -- from furniture for our grown and married kids to finishing off my wife's garage bay and putting in a new bathroom in our basement. But even with not needing anything for a Studebaker project, I wouldn't miss York. We just have too much fun meeting our friends and talking about cars and everything else under the sun. People always have questions about Grace that I am happy to answer (a way for me to pay back all the Studebaker owners I asked questions when we were restoring our car). And I always learn something...like the fact that Eileen Glass and I share the same birthday!

Kindest regards,

A few notes on the cars:

The black Daytona was a little rough around the edges. No price listed.

Light blue 4dr. Commander- decent driver- $5850.

Black 50- a real stunner inside and out- the single flaw was a shabby steering wheel[}:)]- $11K.

Pretty green 62 Lark- for sale, no price shown.

Salmon-colored 58- $8500 or best

53 Starliner- Paxton S/C, T-10. Gorgeous throughout. $24,500, and worth the money!

Making it's return for at least the third year was a gorgeous white Champ, fully restored, V8 w/air, $9900. Only there Friday.

Interesting observation- There were several cars in the Corral for sale; but most showed up late, like 11AM, then cut out after just an hour or two! Must be most don't really want to sell[|)] Made no sense...

Hi

Thanks to all who posted pictures, glad it was a good turn out and "a good time was had by all" as they used to say in the local newspapers.

Considering attending, decided against it because of the time and expense involved versus the likehood of finding a good '56-'57 President Classic offered there for a good price. It'll happen someday, just not when I expect.

I dont know the difference between the President models, but a guy inside had pics of a beautiful 58 President 4-door that a friend of his is selling. 71k miles, and he told me it was perfect. I think the price was around $13k. I cant remember his name, because, (1), I met too many people, and (2). I'm horrible at remembering names. But I can dig out his business card and give you the info if you want it.

That car has been there the last couple years. It's all hand-built by the owner, powered by a Stude V8. At least the font clip looks to be metric GM. Not sure where he's from, but he drives it in. Pretty decent workmanship, and definitely unique!

It's strange enough for sure, and from what info I received ,it's a hand built/scratchbuilt/home made car with a Studebaker chassis and running gear.I think he said from a '63 but I'm not certian on that.The chrome logo on the rear fender is his initials.He shows up at York every year and even parks in the same space!!

The two-tone blue Lark is owned by Tom & Nancy Pfahler. Nancy was Co-chair of the Lancaster Meet and Tom is currently President of the Keystone Region Chapter. Neither of them are active on the Forum, though Nancy's brother, Don Jones (Avantidon), is.
The '57 wagon is Pete Hrawlyuk's. He vends Amsoil products.

The gorgeous '56 belongs to Frank Philippi of Ocean Pines, MD.

Bob Peterson can't forgive me for missing him at the International[:I]. We go back about 40 years- both lived in Castro Valley, CA. (I'm 90 miles from York and about 130 from the International Meet site.

You're welcome.

That wasn't for sale, just somebody's ride to the Meet[8D] I thought it was interesting with the all-black interior, but white shifter and T/S lever. Not nearly a show car, but overall decent. I wouldn't mind having it![^]

Thanks for the names Brad. I posted the names on the picture that the guy took with my camera. JDP and the other guy, that I didn't recognize had left.

If anyone's name is wrong, just let me know.

Which reminds me, where was Don?? And for that matter, why no posts lately??

My wife always tells me "Better old cars than young women." And I respectfully agree..

But some of us can't seem to settle with that, hmm???[:0][:X];)

BTW, thanks for posting that picture of the guys with their names next to their faces. I like putting faces to all of these text quotations and names. It makes things seem more realistic. Of course, It will help when I get to the national meet and see some of you in person! (and then you can be dissapointed when you find out that I am a young long-hair![:p]

Nathan,

We were all young once...and we had hair then -- long or short.

On the first picture I posted, does anybody know who's standing behind JDP?

Brad, I believe that might be Larry Pugh. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!

I have noticed Don's (Avantidon) absence from the Forum. He last posted on January 22, a few weeks after I went on hiatus. I have returned on a small scale and hope that he does also.

Got an e-mail from Don today. He's doing well, just super busy. He was at York briefly, but I missed him there. Hopefully he'll pop in soon.
