Sale date is 6-29 and currently has no bids. Is it a drag racer or Bonneville type racer? Anybody know the car?

I think there was a post on this car before. I'm surprised that nobody has bid on it.

I'm waiting for someone to win an auction at Copart so they can tell us their experience.

That was an expensive steering wheel.
The back half looks pretty decent...

If they had been members of the SDC, they should have known to keep a fire extinguisher in their car at all times. ;)

(Hey, I've got one in my ride!)

That is on my list of things to pick up here pretty soon!

The one in my car was in there when I bought it. The PO found a really neat vinyl "Studebaker" script to apply to the side of the extinguisher. It makes it far more presentable!

I don't know it, but it was clearly a hot little car at one time.

I have a few pics on my comp of it before it burned, more of a custom pseudo salt flat looker.
