    • Not Roadside Americana, but Trackside:



      I didn't know any of the Flock brothers ever drove a post-1952 Studebaker in roundy-round racing. (Thanks to Freddy Badgett.) BP
      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      • Okay here is more to the story of this cool picture, car, driver and owner: http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...nd-53-4-Coiupe

        Since my orginial post more has come to light. The Studebaker coupe was wrecked, but also had problem with fan clearence. The engine went into a prewar Ford I think. It seems nobody knows what eventually happened to the Packard engine or the Studebaker coupe.

        • Bob,
          That top photo of the black Lark wagon was taken in California. The car belonged to my brother, Dan Sallia, and was called the "Deceptive Lark". He ran it at Irwindale, Long Beach, San Fernando, and a number of other drag strips in Southern California. It had a 259 V8. It was later replaced with a similarly painted Silver Hawk.
          Not sure where you came by this photo but it is cool to see it. That was a long time ago.
