    Thanks for the interesting link.
    I know of dual and quad exhausts. That '53 C has octo-exhausts.

ID:	1716502I thought this was the fastest car ever that started out as a Studebaker. Heard it went 311, but couldn't back it up with a return run.

        Thanks for the link. Always fun to read an overall positive reporting involving Studebaker. Although I have not followed this kind of competition with a lot of enthusiasm, I always enjoy seeing such reverence and acknowledgement regarding the impact Studebaker made in automotive history.

          Thanks for the link; 'good news indeed! BP
          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

          G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

            The car also prompted a rule change when it was decided that running the eight exhaust pipes all the way out the back was the same as a belly pan which the class did not allow. Hence a rule change. Ahead of their time and a car we all admire and look to for inspiration. Hope the Hawk we run next year lives up to the standard set by the SanChez and Cagle team.

              Nice read!

              I wonder if '66's in the salt belt went any faster as they got older once the holes started forming in the trunk floor.
