The thread with the '52 Studebaker surrounded by some really cool drag cars got me to looking for some more such pictures. Here is a picture of a supercharged Lark from a newspaper. I am not sure of the year.

Sure, Joe; that is Gordon Williams' car. It's been discussed here several times, so if you search for his name, you'll find several threads.

It was originally built as an R1 and raced F/SA.

If you have a copy of the February 2009 Collectible Automobile with my article High Performance Studebakers of the 50s and 60s, Gordon's car is pictured in its earlier configuration on Page 64. BP

The paper it was in was National Dragster.

Sorry about posting this since it has been on the Forum at least twice previously. I never thought to do a search. I should know by now to to that before posting stuff.

Thanks Nick for posting those two links. Lots of interesting stuff there.
