Pekka Polvinen from Finland sent me a couple of Swedish car magazines. Pekka posts here often and has written articles for TW and various Scandinavian car magazines. Pekka currently has a beautiful '55 President Coupe (featured in his now famous Christmas video :D), and a '58 Golden Hawk.

The June '07 issue of Wheels, in addition to interesting articles on the Pojkdrommen and Dodssynden [:0], has a 5 page spread on our own TED HARBIT [:p] [8D] !

It's nice to see Ted get the world wide recognition he deserves [^]

I had never noticed the AAA sticker on the front bumper before. I wonder if Ted has ever had to call on them? I was hopeful Dick would give us a translation.[:o)]

Maybe one of our Swedish members could at least translate the frontpage:)or some of the highlights of the articles even. It would be interesting to know what was printed.

:) To get us started on the translation:

The second word of the third line in the caption on the two-page spread means Studebaker. [:0]

OK, you guys take it from there. [^]

I find it funny that they call it Wheels Magazine, the use the word RACE, and also the term Viva Las Vegas, everything else is in their language. It is not a cheap publication something like $8 to $10 bucks a copy.

Hello.
I did translate the text for the pictures.

My problem isn´t the Swedish, but the English.
I did my best anyhow.

The rest of the text tell us about Ted´s racing life with this car.
And its a good story, Thanks Ted.



After 46 years, still active, what’s that?
But if we tell you that he’s driving Studebakers, That should make I interesting.
http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s282/aspalen/Ted%20Harbit%20Article/PICT5189.jpg


Picture is taken in 1962, and Ted Harbit is in age of 22.
He just won the NHRA K/stock class.

Official NHRA-portrait at the M/Stock National Champion, of 1967.
The STP Skirt fit’s well for a euntiast, STP was included in the Studebaker Corporation at the time.

At 1968, Ted won T/Stock.
Note the change of detail over the years.
It was repainted several times.

The Victory Circle of 1969.
This time both a kranskulla (in Sweden, a girl that gives the winner a hug, and flowers)
and Teds Wife Mary Ann.

Another picture of a winner. This time Ted was, beside of another sweet kranskulla, with his friend Fred, that been around from the beginning.

The most of Ted’s world of cars is about Studebakers.
In later years, he restored a -61 Studebaker Truck.

70+, and still active
Ted Harbit´s life of racing did start nearly 50 years ago, and he still wants to go faster.
http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s282/aspalen/Ted%20Harbit%20Article/PICT5190.jpg



The small Studebaker engine, now bored to 299 cui gives about 700 horsepower.
The covers over the 600 cfm Carter Afb carburators, are standard Studebaker items, from the cars equipped with superchargers.

A race car with stock front seat?
Well, the car is still streetlegal, and it´s good for cruicing.
The roll bar was installed when the Chicken Hawk did 10:s

He who did the two page spread of the Chicken Hawk (ala Motor Trend) did good work. That is a wonderful shot of the Chicken Hawk with that classic low shot picture framing and that imposing stance that car always had. I'd photocopy and frame that shot, maybe even poster size, thats a wall hanger!! :D You did good Ted, real good! Congratulations! [8)] :D

And thanks to Aspalen for translating the article from Sweedish. That article has some great pictures.
