Anyone see a Stude boat-tailed speedster at Lancaster meet?

There was a model of one about three feet long. The picture is on my other computer and I will need to download it. I know several others got pictures. If anyone knows the owner, Gary Ash would like to speak to him/her.

It was there. I didn't see it at the meet; don't know how I missed it. I did see it leave Friday or Saturday; headed east on Rte 30.

Yes, it was there. I didn't get any pictures of it since I had taken some at York. Somebody here will likely have a picture of it.

Not sure if this is it... but could it have been Tom Shrock's 1940 President?
Here's a pic of it in 1984...

I don't believe Tom brought the '40; wish he had, as well as the TommyHawk!

The one I saw was white, and designed after the speedsters of the 30's.
It may have been the same one that was at York.

No, I think this is what jacsprat is referring to:

I don't think I would have built it quite that way.

The homebuilt looks like a 1939 SS100 (predessor to Jaguar) designed on an Etech-a-sketch.

Here it is. Sorry, something is in the way. Does this photo belong on the Stove huggers forum? (Neither car was built by Studebaker, although one has some Stude content under the hood.)
