Hello all! :-) Our '60 Lark hardtop was in its first ever car show today - what a blast that was! The people were so nice!!! Heard some great Studebaker stories from different folks and at the end of the day, we got an award - participant's choice. WOO HOO!

I know I've said this before, but the advice and stuff you guys gave us on this forum was really amazing! We owe you all a big thank you for making our first project a joy and a success. This car went from a total basket case to being a pretty cool little ride. Can't wait to start the next one! :-)

You guys are awesome!!!

Hee hee! Yep! They said we were going to have to race the cobras to keep the award. I said, "that's cool, I siphoned all the gas out of em earlier, so it shouldn't be a problem, hee hee hee!"

For some reason I really really like that color combination on your Lark!
Oh btw, I am posting a pic of my 60 Lark taken during the 2006 NM in Omaha.
IMHO, this is a paint combination that Studebaker should have made avilable.
You done good !!!!!

Phil: Hee hee hee, thanks for sharing! When we bought the car, we started scouring the web for pics of what other folks had done. We saw that pic of your car and knew that was IT! That's where I got the idea from. Hope you don't mind. :) It's so cool to get to chat with the person who inspired me on the colors!!! You're totally right, Studebaker should have offered this color scheme ... it's just FUN!

Love your cars!!

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for the compliment on my cars. My wife has named my cars, the Lark is "Sweet Sue" and the 56 Hawk is "Georgia". I am glad Sweet Sue made enough of impression on you, for you to go with the same collor combination. I have no problem at all, with your choice to go with the same color, as you stated, It's just FUN!

I have had the Lark for 10 years now, and it still gets a lot of favorable attention, everytime I drive it.

Nice car! Love your colors! Congrats on the trophy! We just bought a 1959 Lark that needs work, but Rick has a vision for it!

Right on! Great car, and a deserved win, for sure :) I, too, love that color combination. The factory really should have offered it - would have gone a long way toward dispelling their "dowdy" image.
