      Thank you for posting the link. Never got the pleasure of driving a real R2 Lark but did drive an R3. One bad hot rod for sure.

        Very cool the Studebaker got it's props. I can claim having owned one car in the list, the 427/425 hp Biscayne. Though mine was a 68.

          Wow; what a great piece, Dan. Thanks for the post. 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.
