That car is fabulous. I love the color. BTW, thats the Daytona side trim I'm looking for. Are you gonna bring your car to the Sacramento Area soon????? No reason.

Red must be the go-to color for R2 Larks. I've owned 3 and you and Brandon have one too.

Red paint makes vehicles go faster. That's why fire trucks are painted red. ;)

Jackson, I'd be REAL careful about going to the Sacramento area. Sals wants that trim real BAD!!

Yeah..... I'm on the lookout for a set of the bottom part of the Daytona trim. I don't need the chrome strip, just the lower part. Maybe I'll see some at the Studebakers West swap meet??

...and John Deere of Moline, IL. The tractor's color and the subsequent anniversary of the company's first riding cultivator is celebrated on our '63 license plates :D :D.

Hmm, Red Avanti with YOM Green and Yellow dealer plates :D.....

Are the Super Red R2's quicker than the Regal Red R2's?
