    Hi,

    Perhaps he'd read a story somewhere about how Bob Bourke had gone to the Studebaker board in 1951 seeking approval for a new low-slung model and took that to mean that the body actually came to be in 1951.

    I don't think a lot of commentators today realizethat when they hear stories about a design being conceived back then in, say, 1951, that it was a two to three year process before that design could become a reality. There weren't any computer controlled millilng machines cutting dies from huge chunks of forged steel in a week or two like now, back then they were done slowly and laboriously and took a lot of time to create.

    Sure would be nice if they were to get some commentators who knew what they were talking about. One of them said very authorativly that the 57 hawk was built on a body introduced in '51. Also refered to it as a compact sporty car. Guess a 120.5" wheelbase isn't long enough.

    Looks like my predicted horses finished 1-2-3 and if the truth be known. I also picked # 4 just didn't add it to my trifector last night.
    Watching the B-J is as exciting as the Super Bowl for me.
    I was actually leaving my seat and cheering after each of my picks hiot the mark.

    Sorry I missed the Studebaker for $135,000.00 but my son arrived and I had to go out in the cold to fix his headlights??????
    Family before Auction!

    Well, they sure hyped one. They've got a lemon-lime speedster in the vaunted 5000 lot (#25 of 30) that will be auctioned tomorrow evening. It's supposed to have been restored in Scottsdale, but when you compare the engine compartment photos of the Barrett-Jackson car to the one being raffled off in York, you'll see some things that will have you scratching your head and wondering why it's a Lot 5000 car.

    See any inconsistencies?

    I don't know about "inconsistencies" because I only looked at the B-J picture. On a quick look, I did note ten incorrect items in the engine compartment of the B-J Speedster.

    Got my cable changed this afternoon so I could watch the Barrett Jackson tonight.
    Mustang Mustang Mustang...................where are the Studebakers???
    Guess I will be most excited tomorrow over just three cars. #1 1933 Pierce Arrow. #2 1948 Tucker and #3 1948 Bentley
    I think these are the three horses to watch in this years race.
    Good Roads

    Don't get me wrong, it's a great experience and car show...if you can afford it, get the VIP or Bidders pass, you get to go behind the ropes, up on stage, good parking and free drinks.
    I just don't like the hype and I'm really not sure how much I'd trust them.
    My brother lives in Phoenix, I'd like to take him but I don't know if he could walk that much with a bad hip following a sports car wreck 20 years ago. I don't think he's like one of those zippy "free government " scooters.

Its a bunch of hype for the most part but a nice way to spend a day with Dad and look at 1300 plus cars. Some of the same ones last year :-). Probably more buyers remorse happens at the end of that auction then any other but maybe I'm wrong.

    I'd love to read/hear the true stories about that outfit especially since a friend's bad experience in 2003. He'll never go back.
    A friend in the business told me one piece of vile gossip out the event that I can't repeat here.

    This Golden Hawk looks to me to be a much better car than the one last year so we will see. It was parked inside the big tent with all the top quality stuff. It was in a roped off area so could not be assessed properly.

    The Golden Hawk and the Speedster are real nice looking cars. I'll be intrested in hearing what the Golden Hawk goes for compared to the one driver quality car that did 99K last year.
