    I must have misunderstood our esteemed SDC CoOperator Columist!

    Yes, Rich; you misunderstood.

    What I was saying is this: In 1964, the car would be known as, simply, a Studebaker Daytona, as opposed to being identified as a Lark Daytona in 1963.

    My original sentence said this: A 1963 or 1964 Studebaker Lark Daytona station wagon with sliding roof and R2 engine.

    I knew if I left it like that, Gary would jump in to "correct" me that the vehicle was not a Lark in 1964, only in 1963.

    Hence my disclaimer; "only a Daytona in 1964," as opposed to it being identified as a Lark Daytona in 1963. The disclaimer centered around the use of the word "Lark," not Daytona.

    (Trying to preempt things around here can also be misunderstood, it would appear. Whew!) <GGG> BP

      Photographer Joel Quimby features Union Terminal and a few images of the Wagonaire. Very cool.

          I'm a subscriber to MT Classic which is as BP said a Quarterly publication. I'm sure they'll get the details on modifications into the story, but with no disrespect intended to Gary, who but Studebaker folks would even know (or care) that it's modified??? We get minimal publicity in the mainstream automotive media although many pieces I read are nostalgic and positive about the contribution Studebaker made to Automotive history.

            Thanks Andy for posting the link to some previews. I sure hope the Feature article has REAL Photos though!

            You could never tell what a real Wagonaire looks like with all of those terrible "bubble" pics from using the wrong Lens too close.

            Some people may call that Art, obviously NOT me.

                'Not sure what you mean by "full disc hubcaps," Jimmy.

                Malcolm normally drives and shows the car with non-stock slotted wheels and small, non-Studebaker dog-dish hubcaps, as shown in Post #7, above.

                In the teaser photos linked in Post #17, above, it looks like the wagon was fitted with full-diameter Studebaker wheel covers, possibly 1963 Hawk, for the photo shoot. BP

                  Very informative thread guys. I look forward to a great multi-page spread on Malcolm's R2 Wagonaire.
                  The current issue of Motor Trend Classic (Winter 2011) contains two Studebaker related articles.
                  The first (pages 92-99) is about "Mr. 500", Andy Granatelli. Lots of great photos and reading.
                  On page 140 is the Affordable Classics article. It features our '64 GT Hawk. Detroit MT Editor Todd Lassa saw our car at the Ypsi Orphan Car Show in late Sept 2011.
                  He handed me his business card and interviewed me on site. He asked for a good photo which I took a few days later and emailed him.
                  The article has a few errors in it (golden hawk?, hemi?) but I got a kick out of seeing in there anyhow.

                        I picked my issue up at Barnes and Noble a couple of days ago. The article on Malcom's Wagonaire is a good one. I would love to see some pictures of that car when Phil and Malcom drag raced it in its early days. This is the most expensive magazine I have ever purchased, but the Wagonaire story was well worth it. Other articles too are very good and very informative. (Did you know that the last 289 Cobra was an automatic, from the factory? Me either.)
