  • Fall Show Pics

    This past Sunday, we attended the Fall 2009 Fest Flea Market Classic Car Show down here in Sunny & Warm Pompano Beach, Fla. Over 700 vehicles showed up for the all day event. The Fla. Avanti/Studebaker Club was represented by 15 cars. Here are a few pics:

        Very nice...thanks for the post, envious though it makes me regarding the weather in Pompano Beach! Never saw anyone outline the cove panel on a 54 in stainless like that. Rather striking. The last-of-the-last Avanti and the drag Commander are cool too...

          Look at the rear tires on the last Lark. Was that car street legal?

            That 66 looks to have some big diggers under it. And a partial roll cage to boot.[^]

              Judging by the tire, it has tread on it, which tells me they're drag radials. The tread is needed not only for regular street use, but also for adverse weather, which is, or was, why DOT won't approve slicks for use on the street(no tread). As far as I know they're legal for the street, but I wouldn't use em for everyday use. I've heard real horror stories about those things in heavy rain [}]

                Nice cars, great looking weather, but is this event from the future? Fall 2009? Any '61 hardtops for sale down there? Still trying to help a future owner. I like that '60 version posted.

                  What's that? The Fall 2009 show? No wonder those cars look so "ahead of their time".

                    Ok all, it was a typo error. 2008 not 2009. My keyboard is hard to see at night. Anyway, my GT Hawk and Avanti II are off the injured reserve list and now back in the game ( minus $ 2,000 in maintenance repairs and new parts).

                      This is one CLEAN & MEAN lookin', phat-a$$ed little Lark! (Althought I may be just a touch biased. [:I]) This was my car, purchased and completed by my friend Mitch. Mitch is one of those fellas who pays strict attention to detail. No doubt, this hot rod Lark is as tight and clean as it looks. [^]



                      Beautiful job Mitch! Good show!
