  • Pat's pictures from the International Meet

    Here is a link to most of the car pictures I took at the International Meet. I have not added any descriptions. My interests lean towards the modified cars. Hope you enjoy.

    I also took some other pictures going to and from and with friends and locations. If you are interested, they are here:

    Some of the through the windshield pictures could be better. The Glennwood canyon along I-70 was spectacular. I also found some wide open spaces along old Highway 40 between Rifle, CO - Meeker, CO - Dinosaur, CO and on toward Park City Utah. Not much traffic congestion there! I did encounter the cars guy's nightmare though. A sign that said: "Pavement Ends" where they were doing some construction. About 2.5 miles of hard dirt road. But we survived.

      Thanks for the good "modified ones" pictures, sir ! I firmly believe that the only reason manufacturers make vehicles of any kind as they do is so we can finish them properly, and to taste ha ! (Matter of fact, a new radiator cap or plugs and points, etc., makes it "modified" if you get right down to it) Is the one Lark-looking car the home of the front wheel drive unit ? Very unusual, must have taken a bit of massaging....

        j.byrd, Yes the Lark is front wheel drive. It is essentially a Lark shell over a complete Olds Cutless chassis. Even the seats and dash are from the Olds.

                Pat,

                E-mail me the picture of your car underneath the Thunderbird at the USAFA. I'd like to use it in Hawk Talks. That's a great shot!

                Thanks

                    Good job Pat, those are very good Pics, I am disappointed that Flickr does not allow copying though. On all of the Photobucket Pics some people have, I have saved the Pics of the Original Cars.

                    I have to hand it to all these modified owners they are doing such high quality jobs with so much work and Money going into them I guess it is good they are keeping Studes. alive, well half alive anyway with all those boring GM thingys under the hood, but nobody expects ME to appreciate them, so I'll just say very good work to all of them.

                    The one that looks very good to me is that Light Teal Green '53 Starliner Hardtop with the dark Teal Bumpers and that really neat Silver and darker color tapered stripe on the body side crease, I almost could stand one like that where the body is only mildly modified, the Engine not so much.

                      Rich, if you right mouse click on the flickr photos it will give you choices on size. Once you pick a size, right click again and it should give you copy and linking options.

                        An appreciated picture taking point of view.

                        If everyone took the same photo's there would only need to be one post.
                        Plus not everyone takes a photo of every car.

                          Great photos, Pat.

                          Do you or anyone else here know the details of the '55 hardtop with the turbocharged LS engine? I would like to see more detailed photos and/or talk to the owner. Please send me a PM if you have the owner's contact information.

                            That 55 has a LQ9 6.0 liter in it. He just got it running in time to trailer it to the IM. I have his email inmy real computer that is currently defunct. As soon as I am able to retrieve it I will send it to you.
