On my way over to Saginaw, MI today from the west lakeshore, I met a pack of Larks heading west on highway 46 near Edmore. I don't know much about Stude trucks, but one of the Larks was on a gorgeous bright red Stude flatbed truck (Transtar??). The other Larks were being driven. There was quite a parade of other makes being trailered, too.

Was this the PSMCD contingent?

Lots of fun to see them out there, anyway. It got me all primed up for my attendance next week at Lancaster, my first ever Stude event. I'm hoping to get a couple gigabytes of pictures while I'm there, especially of some Speedsters,

Red Stude Transtar flatbed makes me think Ted Harbit. What was on the bed, a brown '64 or red '63?

Yup. Brown '64. Is that the "Plain Brown Wrapper?" Cool

One 64 Brown Lark, One Bright Red 63 Lark(I presume in the pack), and one Bright Red flatbed. Yup, sounds like our boys alright. The 64(which is of course the R3) is the much better looking cousin to my 64(which is an R2 clone). Yep it is affectionately known as the Plain Brown Wrapper. The 63 is an R2 and known as the Stude Tomato, and the flatbed sounds like Harbit's wheels as I pulled one engine block from the rest of the stuff on that particular flatbed he was selling at South Bend this and last year :).

Pardon the information that probably came from the Department of Redundancy Department, lol......
