You may remember the January 2012 Turning Wheels Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race reports, among them Finland SDC member Pekka Polvinen's review of being at the event.

Pekka is a multi-lingual writer for Finland's American-iron V8 Magazine.

Pekka just sent a copy of V8 Magazine in which his report of the event appears. It's not in English, so if we have a good translator among us, they'll be able to tell us what Pekka said!

Here's the introductory page of the article, and the Studebaker-specific sidebars:

It sounds like Pekka is writing for a Swedish Magazine as well. I received an email from him yesterday stating that his article has featured a picture of my Hawk taking off the line at Stanton. He asked for my address to send me a copy! I will be looking forward to seeing it.

Right, Allen. IIRC, Pekka said he speaks and writes at least three languages fluently; one of them English, of course.

I really admire a person so enabled, and he's a real nice guy to boot.

(Now, if he would just get his butt on the forum and translate those cited sidebars for us!) <GGG> BP
