        Well, ain't she sweet! I love Larks. You have a really nice example. Hey, do you have a split manifold on her? I noticed dual exhausts sticking out the back.

              I LIKE that color! Good lookin' Stude and great story! There's a bunch of Studes in my past that I wish I could find again!
              Of course - it's not like I don't have enough of them already![xx(]

                That second exhaust is a dummy setup and I removed it already (actually it kinda fell off).

                  Looks like Greg did a bang up job on your little sweetpea. She's really beautiful.
                  You know, my uncle had a 59 Imperial and took it down in the mid 60's to have it repainted. He chose what he thought to be a beige colour. Uncle Will said more than once "I should have thought to take those colour templates outside." They did a beautiful job painting the car. Will was really pleased when he picked it up. Of course the car was inside when he did. Upon arriving home he discovered the colour to be sweetpea pink!! His wife was thrilled, she loved it. She thought that he had chosen the colour for her. Unfortuneatly it was his work car. It took my uncle a long time to live down that pink Imperial. My poor aunt still wants it back.

                  Lotsa Larks!

                    I never considered that coral to be pink. IIRC, Dale E's first race car was pink ('55 Chevy ?).

                      I love the story about the Lark. My car is a '59 Lark Regal Hardtop and the color is (drum roll please) Tahiti Coral. Yes it's pink, but I get an incredible number of interesting comments about my car from people.
                      Especially women. They love the car. Men do too.
                      In fact, in my local AACA Region, I take a lot of good natured ribbing about the color. But, they love my car and so do I.
                      Of my 3 vintage cars, my Lark is the favorite.

                        Yeah...I must admit I like the color too...more now than when I was 17. The color is so outrageously "period" that it really stands out. I forgot what a slug it was though. My '66 Beetle with stock 1300 motor is a rocket by comparison and the Lark is about as slow as my '55 VW single cab pickup. In spite of that I am really excited to have my Lark back after all these years.

                          Great story! You are very fortunate to have gotten your car back. I sold a car years ago (sorry not a Studebaker) that I deeply regretted selling. I tried in vain to locate mine and buy it back. Hang on to it this time.

                            Hey, Dingleberry,
                            Your story sure sounds familiar. My daughter,Gaelyn, bought her pink Regal VIII when she got her license in 83. It had 31000 on it then, and 135000 when it left her position. It let her down twice.
                            I found it in a back yard near here and bought it back for her. It awaits restoration by her husband and stepson. It,too has suffered a few altercations since it left home, but it runs good.
