  • Pure Stock 63 Lark pictured in Detroit Free Press

    I was away for the Labor Day weekend so just looked at the Sunday paper for 9/2/07. I found a nice promo article for the PSMCDs. The picture shows a TransAm burning out and the next car in line is a Lark. The Stude is about 1 1/2 " wide. but I can't ID it. It's in B&W and I know, from the front page, that the Pontiac is dark Blue. However the Lark seems too light to be the 'Tomato. The driver is wearing a helmut. Oh, I can see an 03 on the windshield! It's probably a 2006 picture.So who is it?? I'll proably be sending the article to Bob Palma. Huck

    It wasn't the tomato from this year. The tomato's number was 047

            Thanks for trying. Wow, a lot of people have checked this post! The picture, in the paper, came out before this years race. I know Bob Palma has the answer but where is he?

                        Ohhh, those are good pic's but what '63 Lark was #03, last year or later. The driver was wearing a helmut. See my original post. Thanks, Huck, in rainy Detroit

                            Gary: I checked my Pure Stock Musclecar Drags records back through 2003, and #03 was not a Studebaker in any of them.

                            I'll bet it was at the FALL 2004 Pure Stock Drags, and Ted was #03. I did not attend the FALL 2004 event; just their one-time summer event in June, because our chapter was putting on the Fall SDC Zone Meet that year [2004] and I stayed behind to help with that.

                            However, Ted Harbit did go up early in 2004 for the traditional fall event, to have The Tomato Certified Stock. Because he was there a day early for Certification, he would have been one of the earliest cars to register for the traditional fall Pure Stock Musclecar Drag Race: i.e, #03. (I don't have records of the Fall 2004 event because I was not there.) BP
