  • Spotted on California 101 on 4/3/2012 Need Prayers for SilverhawkDan



    Thanks to Kurtruk I was aware that I might see this. We had a job in Santa Maria and I couldn't believe my eyes I saw the back of ,way up ahead. I was able to snap these going 65 down the 101 and no I wasn't driving. Silverhawkdan I have big files of these if you want me to send them to you. Might be a TW cover shot . The guys and Gals here will let us know.

      The last two Wednesday mornings I've also seen a very, very nice dark blue '53 sedan with a surf board on top entering the freeway (US 101) at Pismo Beach. SilverHawkDan, do you know who that is?

        Looks like a possible cover to me. Good shooting.

                What ever happened to Mickey?

                Thinking of him brought back memories of other once active folks in our little world.

                Sure miss 'em!

                  Mickey's old truck was a Champ with a bed topper. I've wondered about Mickey too, he was good friends with my grandparents and I knew him long before I was ever on the internet. One of the last Studes he owned, a '55 Commander sedan is now owned by a guy here in the Atlanta area.

                      I remember paying the fee at the drag strip, which allowed/persuaded/encouraged/(shamed) "Mel" to run her Champ against Mick's Champ at either South Bend, or Charlotte.... (South Bend, '02, methinks.)

                      Sad to say, I can't remember who won, but I do recall that a good time was had by all....

                      The resulting race was not a fast one, by any stretch, but it needed to be done, and did keep us entertained much longer than a faster race might have.

                      I know I only fell asleep twice during that race, and that's saying something, because, IIRC, that particular race lasted somewhere around a day and a half... just a day or so shy of Gary Ash's run.

                      <GGG>

                      Mel and Mick are but 2 of the many Stude personalities I think of from time to time, and miss hearing from.

                      Hope all is well with Mel, Mick, and all the others.

                      Friends come and go... I would like it much better if they would just stay.

                          So I see I have a stalker. I was told today that I had better not commit any crimes in that truck as they will know exactly where to look. Nice pictures. I remember when they were taken. I saw the passenger of a black? work truck take a picture and then turn around to take some more. You should have waved me over I would have follwed you off the Main Street ramp so you could get some more pics. I am having a great time with the truck. I give history lessons often. Had a guy ask me yesterday if I was going to paint it several shades of candy apple red. I told him no, I have no plans to paint it for now. I would like copies of those pics. I will PM you with my addy. Thanks a lot for helping me share the good fortune that I have been blessed with.

                            Oh for the record. 289, 3 speed with OD, 4.88 ratio. 65 mph=2200 rpm. Plans are in place for 4.30 gears. And yes, it has surprised quite a few people. Too much fun if you ask me.

                            I don't know who owns the 53 and have not seen it yet. Did see a White 60 or 61 Hawk on Thomson road on Monday. Don't know that one either.
