  • Two 54 Studes

    I put this up on Youtube, hoping to contact the present owner of my first Stude. Sorry about the poor quality of the video.

    Hi Alex! Good to see you here again.

    It should probably be noted that the one you are looking for is not the "C" Coupe with the Stock Hood and Bumper Guards, but the Starliner Hardtop with the Louvered Hood, and the Corvette Engine, and it is CERTAINLY NOT in a condition anywhere NEAR how it was when you Originally built it!
    I see crooked Pedals, holes in the floor etc. it has had a lot of changes over the 50 years since!

    Actually it looked like THIS in 1970!

        Dick Steinkamp here’s my favorite 54 Stude; picture was taken back in August and meant to replicate the one you or Dave took of it S2D Omaha I believe? This car is a total dream come true.

              S2D has been known to keep pretty rough company! Click image for larger version

                VERY rough.

                (BTW, that was the only time that day when S2D was in front of Sheba )

                (and who is that taking a leak in the cornfield in the picture I posted? )

                  Yes, Rich, it certainly had gone downhill. The owner was homeless, living in his camper. He kept the car in his mother's garage and hadn't had it on the road for several years. I'm pretty sure he has passed by now. His brother hasn't seen him for several years. He did not know who the car was sold too.

                    Hi Dick, That was a fun trip to Phoenix, but my wife won't take any long trips in it after that. Remember racing down that long onramp? I sure miss the shows this year.

                      It was a fun trip and a great meet. Thanks for putting me up for the night on the way there. I drove straight home from Phoenix to San Francisco...13 hours.

                      What did it for my wife was straight through San Francisco to Seattle for a GoodGuys show. 19 hours including searching for a one wire alternator in Roseburg, Oregon when mine quit charging.

                      I hope the YouTube is successful for you and you find your old car.

                        I'm not sure... we need an investigation!

                          The very definition, of rough company, himself! Isn't it?
