      the car is slowly coming back to life south of the Canadian border in southern Mn.We bought the car in Nov, 2010 from Tom Crouch & have been rebuilding it since then. The body was pretty rough & it would never be a "concours quality" car, so it's coming back to life as an old school "Studillac" with a Cadillac 472, turbo 400, 9"Ford rear, disc brakes, r&p steering so it will become a fun driver while still retaining the stock look outside/inside. This time around it's going to be the 58 Stude Shadowtone red color, becvause there's a lot of black cars out there, so we're going for something a little more distinctive..

            AFAIK, Bob; that is correct. Neither of the actual two cars that would have paced the race has been accounted for. 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.

              Bernice passed away several years ago & is now owned by a member.of SDC.The car is a 56 flight Hawk H/T 6cyl. auto.It was being driven but has serious rust issues in the frame & front fenders .I would have deemed it unsafe, and except for the rarity parted it out or spent thousands on a & be in up-side down.
