    Check the year cited in the ad, Paul: 1959. Ted Harbit and his Studebaker (a 1951 Commander Convertible; "Teacher's Pet") weren't yet in national competition. Teacher's Pet was runner-up at the 1961 National Drags. That inspired Ted to get a lighter '51 that would still "make" that class, for the 1962 National Drags.

    That lighter car, a Starlight Coupe, was christened The Chicken Hawk. Together, they won their class at the 1962 NHRA National Drags and "the legend" was underway.

    I'm not sure where that Sanders-Flanigan team was then, but I think I've heard Ted mention them. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
