  • Pop Quiz: What was the first one?

    OK, time for another Pop Quiz. The first person to post the correct answers (all parts of the answer) to the following question wins two unused, NOS Studebaker Corporate letterhead envelopes from my dwindling collection of same. Previous winners please allow others to participate this time.

    Inside the front cover of the May 2011 Turning Wheels is Ted Harbit's famous Chicken Hawk and understanding wife, Mary Ann.

    But before there was a Chicken Hawk, Ted campaigned another Studebaker in NHRA Drag Racing for a couple years. It even won National Runner-Up in class at the 1961 NHRA National Drags!

    What was that car's:

    1. Model Year
    2. Model
    3. Body Style
    4. NAME given to it by Ted Harbit

    Remember, you must have all four questions answered correctly to win, such as this ficticious example:

    1. 1949
    2. Champion
    3. 2-door
    4. Mickey-Mouse Studebaker

    This is not an "insider" thing; the answers have been published more than once in Turning Wheels through the years, including March 1996. BP
