  • Old Cars Weekly articles

    Diego Rosenberg's nice article on the 2007 Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race is now posted on the Old Cars Weekly website. There are several positive Studebaker citations and photos. With all the discussion of late about copyright laws, I'll not post a link. Rather, just go to the Old Cars Weekly website and scroll down to Diego's article, "Not a Drag." Nicely done.

    Also, further down, is a story with photos of a 1970 Malibu SS 396 on which the owner had reportedly spent $100,000 for a perfect restoration...and had several first place trophies to prove it. The article doesn't explain exactly how it happened, but the story indicates the Malibu rolled down a boat ramp and was photographed from several angles with only the roof and deck lid protruding from the water.

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

        Thanks, John.

        If readers want to see the Malibu boat article I referenced, do this:

        After reading Diego's drags article, go to the tool bar above his article and click on STORIES. From that drop-down menu, click on OCW ARTICLES. Then scroll down once the articles appear. You'll likely recognize a mostly-submerged white 1970 Malibu SS with blue stripes when you get to it! BP

            Great article!

            I've said it before, but that Martin, MI is ONE BEAUTIFUL TRACK [].

            Seems like only a couple of months ago () we were there.

            Here's Bob and his cuz' George trying to get just a few more HP out of the Tomato at the race in Martin immediately following the International...



            ...and for those that haven't seen it, here's Ted takin' down a 440 6 pak at that race (note Ted's short shift to 4th when he realizes just how far he's leading by...and STILL turns a 13.4!)...

                    'Careful, Dick; Diego's article is about the fall event at The Mid-Michigan Motorplex in Stanton MI, not the Knoll Park(?) Motorsports Dragway in Martin MI to which you refer. (You're right, though; Martin is one gorgeous facility.)

                    It's probably a little cold to be running up there today, though, at either place. Sigh. [V] BP
