    Very cool, I love grass roots stories like this. Bonneville racing is so pure.

        What an excellent story ..... Incidentally, it's hard to believe how much these Bonneville cars need to weigh to stay 'planted' at high speeds!....In the case of this '53 Stude....2 1/2 TONS

            A great story and well-written to boot. Congrats to Don and his team for a job well done!

              Thanks for the post, Bob. It's always great to see Studebaker success in print. Does anyone know what he used for power?
