  • In case you missed it..

    Someone has posted a video from the Proving Ground test track. Must have been before the lead car got out of the way.

    Too cool!!!

    Driving around the track must've been pretty nice, but those of us watching from the fence got to see all of the cars there that day!!! [:0] [^]
    I still wish I was there in one of my own, though... [V]

        Interesting, all I can tell is it's someone with a Bordeaux Red '64 with Black interior, probably a Daytona HT, maybe an R series from the sound. It did not sound like he shifted it manually.

        Funny how the spots never go away when he turns the wipers on! They must be on the lens![:0]

            I think the camera at first was sitting behind the windshield just in the area where the windshield wipers don't wipe. I wondered that too when I first watched the video. It was posted by Stude65, and has a video of an R1 1964 Daytona although I don't think it's the same car here--the interior looks like a different color. More of the car here:

            My next Studebaker is in the future, but now getting my hair messed up in a Sebring ragtop!
            Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

                Rich, what Mark said.

                Here's a couple of the pics I took.



                Some unrestored Lark wagon kept me from hitting 120 MPH. [}]


                So I floored it, and Mr. Biggs' H2O Induction kicked in. (Notice the South Bend Police Dept's Wagonaire getting ready to pull over that Lark for going too slow! Or maybe for slinging hubcaps off at other cars...)


                That's Craig's Colorful Commander.


                Pulled off to get this one.




                Then we all stopped 'cause some old Studebaker broke down. [xx(]

                    I just watched the video of the Studes on the prooving ground track and was wondering if this video could not be evolve into a computer game type of race or something like that. Everyone could take their favorite Stude and put their foot in it going as fast as they want. What kind of dollars would it take to develope something like this? Neil G.

                        Next time around at the proving track they should have 6's in the RH lane, V8's in the middle lane and supercharged units in the LH lane![}]

                            What about trucks with 4 cylinder Diesels?
