I am hoping to bring my latest acquisition to the Intl meet in Colorado Springs. Just curious as to what judging class that I would be in?

Dick,
Just ask the Studebaker armourments expert Larry Tholen who will be at Colorado Springs.

Do you have the ammunition?

Of course, never leave for a show without it.

Don't all horse-drawn Studebaker "vehicles" go in the same class, Dick? :rolleyes:

(At the 1999 Warren OH Packard Centennial, a fellow had a huge, Packard-built radial WWII aircraft engine mounted on a trailer with a large cage around the propellor. Every so often, he would fire it up for what immediately became a huge crowd!) :!: BP

Looks like Dick found a way to blow away his competition.

I plan to drive the Holt and tow the other units. From Mokena to Colorado Springs only 1064 miles. Should make it in 11/2 days I think. The camouflage will hopefully make me invisible to the state troopers.

Modified. That's a non-standard paint job on this particular example. If you're going to contend that the coloration was not applied by the customer or some intermediary, you'd want factory documentation of this particular scheme.

The state troopers wont see you and not because of the camouflage, they'll think your just some shrub ridge or a big rock as they zoom pass you. BTW what is the top speed of that Holt? About 12?

The state troopers will be confused - thinking: "I didn't know there was an NRA gathering goin' on!"

You will be in the "big shot" class.

Bob; I am quite surprised that you would imply that I would deviate from original. I believe this image should set you straight!

This is a trick question. The answer is "none". I know that you do not enter vehicles to be judged.

Something about an old saying..."A lot of bang for your buck" comes to mind.

Regardless...owning and operating that thing should be a BLAST!:rolleyes::ohmy::)

You have a permit for that? Better check local regs for Colorado... :)

OK - if, in fact, you had it repainted by THOSE gals, I'll not protest.

Now, will this be a solitary unit, or will you have others with as you will be traveling with military convoy while carrying this piece? :rolleyes:

If I don't run out of camouflage paint I will have additional units. Trying to get the directional signals hooked up tonight.

That is a new on one me!!! I knew of the license-built Rolls Royce 'Merlin' V-12s, and boat engines of their own, but I have NEVER heard of any radial aircraft engines comin' from Packard. :ohmy: :yeahright:

I wonder if it was bigger or smaller then the radials Studebaker was building?

Yup, they did and I believe that they were actually diesel engines rather than gas. I think they were a little smaller but roughly the same size as a Studebaker-Wright R-1820. Packard built some unusual stuff over the years. They even had an airfield in the infield of their Proving Ground test track, so they had the means to test aircraft parts.

But it wasn't always like that-- RQ's Champ managed to get 3rd place in the Senior Class at the Meet in South Bend- in 1978. I just happened to be looking at the November 1978 TW or I'd never know that. (lottsa nice looking trucks were there that year, BTW)

Being the aviation geek that I am- I'd sure like to know more about all of this.
The internet is proving to be useless, Where should I be looking?

Did you try Googling "Packard radial diesel aircraft engine"? I did and it gave me a list of web sites and wikipedia has Packard Dr-980 engine photos and info of same.

Obviously not- or I would not have posted what I did.

Now that I have I see that it wasn't from WW2 at all... :rolleyes: :ohmy:
