  • WHAT?!? No post about the 2010 PSMCDR???

    Sept 17-18 are the PSMCDR (Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Races) being held at the usual location at Mid-Michigan Motorplex near Stanton, MI.

    ~Word~ is that 12 Studebakers will be active participants! That should be a new record! Hopefully they will match last year's feat with a WIN for every Studebaker driver in their shoot-out rounds.

    'Just a couple days ago, Frank:

    http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...rag-Races-2010

    We of Studebaker-land will have to be on our Good Behavior: Turning Wheels' Editor Art Unger has made flight and rental car plans to attend the 2010 Pure Stock Drags all the way from British Columbia! He called to discuss his plans Wednesday eveing, September 1, and will be there!

    Art said he couldn't stand it any more; 'had to come at least once. This should indeed be a good year for him to attend.

    (Phooey; with Art on site, I won't be able to make up any more stories <GGG> for sidebars in the Turning Wheels 2010 Pure Stock Drags report, which we have scheduled for the January 2011 issue.) BP

      Hi Frank,

      I'm looking for a "driving buddy", and I can't seem to get Bob S interested despite several emails.

      Can you send him an email?

      Thank you,

      Paul

        Let's line 'em up and run 'em, Frank. Loser buys Cokes ? I had to stop tonight because my ring compressor walked off. I'll make another short search for it tomorrow before heading to town to buy another. A little more dusting and cleaning in the engine bay and I'll be ready to button it up and go for a break-in cruise next weekend.

          Hey Paul!! I know Bob's brother Gord is coming over from Newmarket for the PSMCDR. I'll see if I can get Gord to light a fire underneath Bob. Their father just passed away and I think the memorial service is the weekend follwoing PSMCDR so I don't know if this has a bearing on Bob's reluctance on attending the PSMCDR. Remember, Bob is a charter member of CASO group so that may be keeping him away. He doesn't like to part with his Loonies. Hope to see you there!

            I plan on driving my Lark up there and parking in the Stude corral. I will not be racing for several reasons (don't want to break it, it's not an Avanti-powered Lark, it isn't stock, etc.) BUT...I DO want to be part of the crowd and will be taking photos while I am there (Saturday). So, keep a spot open for me!

              Paul, Are you looking to hitch a ride or are you driving a Stude down to the event?

              Caroline and I are leaving on Thursday afternoon or Early Friday morning in my Hawk... Bob Barrick is going down probably early Friday morning. I have met Bob for Breakfast at the Bob Evans in Port Huron early in the morning. He has a 1 1/2 - 2 hour advantage on me and probably 2 -2 1/2 on you. We have not decided what are plans are yet... but we know that we are going to Stanton and racing.

                we're keeping a spot open for you, George; we need more of your good photos at the track, for Turning Wheels! Keep taking them! BP

                    Hi Allen,

                    Thank you for your kind offer. I was going to drive down with a local former SDC nut but I would not be taking a Studebaker. I have three Studes insured, and while they are safe, they all have long distance issues, and would not be suitable/ready for drags. (55 Commander, 58 PH less blower (I have 3 in a box), and the 63 GT (2 barrel).

                    I was hoping to get one of the 55 Speedsters out (to clinch the as yet unclaimed 55 record - Is there anyone else out there?), but I haven't even opened their barn door yet this year. My 56J GH brakes need looking at.

                    I admire the fact that you have been able to find the time despite a busy schedule to get your cars ready.

                    Paul

                      I've been hanging around DC since getting kicked out of the Outer Banks. This city is remarkable. Should be home in two days, hopefully without any more Stude trouble.

                      I sure hope Bob Palma has saved me a spot in the Stude corral, because my Hawk is one-hell-of-a-lot more dependable than my Lark. That Lark is getting a new drivetrain!

                          Sorry to hear about your car problems, Allen.

                          My focus always has been on being able to stop well. I haven't focussed on making a car go a long distance or making it go fast. (yet!)

                          It looks as though Bob can't make it. I'll see if my son is interested or ???
