  • Street Muscle Magazine: Great Lark exposure

    'Nice article here in the June 11 dispatch. A few mistakes, but fewer than you might expect and respectfully written:

    Cool Beans. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Bob, I like the caption that practically calls out Studebaker as being the real first muscle car and the insinuation that Delorion may have got his GTO inspiration from the Super Lark. At least that's how I read it.

        Cool...

        Interesting he made the distinction between R3 vs R4, but not the R1 vs R2.

          True, Nels; I thought maybe you had ghost written the article! BP

            Kind of looks like the picture I took of my R4.

            Strange! Even though I downloaded the original picture I took which is the same picture used in the article, it shows in the thumbnail area, but not on the screen.

            By the way, mention of the R-3 having 335 horsepower- the R-3 I sold, milder cam, standard blower, dynoed 357 horsepower. Why would Studebaker understate the horsepower?

              Nice credit for Allan Anderson, too. I was looking for Joe Flannery behind the wheel, but that ain't him. Thanks, Bob.
