    It used to say Garey High School on the door, which is located in Pomona. Any info or pics greatly appreciated. Sorry I don't have a better pic right now.[​IMG] Thanks

    I bought it from a guy in Irwindale, it used to belong to his brother and he bought it the early 70's. It was panel painted blue and said Garey High School on the door before he and his bro poured paint stripper all over it, maybe it was an auto shop project? The car is very well built for an early gasser. Somebody with some skills put this thing together, I was told it used to run an olds motor with a hydro-stick. The mounts are still in the car supporting this story. Thats about all I know.

    I sanded some old primer off of the rear quarter panel and found some old gold leaf lettering. The car used to be sponsored by Advance Speed and Marine. Anybody ever heard of this old speed shop?

    I agree with the other guys...go the Garey alumni/High School reunion route. Work your way through the 60's contacting each class year's reunion rep.
    If the car looked as nice as I bet it did, I bet it made it into the HS yearbook, which should give you names of the main players including the auto shop teacher.
    I recall my 70's shop teacher being an old dry lakes racer/hot rodder from the 50's and he was a master fabricator/welder.
    Hopefully some pics of it making a pass (Pomona?) will surface!
     
  19. No shit huh? We should have shop night at your place tonight...hell you've got a race to run last time I checked.

    I've heard of it but that's about it. Memory isn't what it used to be.

    Try contacting Cal Rods. Someone there may remember the car.

    Suggest checking with Greg Sharp @ the NHRA Museum.He is the historian there and can probably help.I recognize the car but can't remember anything else about it.I beleive it was running at Irwindale in the early 70's when I was racing my Chevy 2.Good luck.

    Stude gassers are cool. I searched my archive and came up with only this Studie photo. I think that's Lions c1961.

    Yes, I bought the car in Irwindale from a guy who said his brother used to race it there. Do you have any old racing photos? Maybe it's in the background of one. Thanks

    Around '68, I worked at a Mobil gas station at the corner of 22nd and Vermont in L.A.. Just down the street, there was a Shell station at the corner of Vermont and Adams. They had a blue Stude gasser called Super Stude. Never saw the motor but the trans was torqueflite with the old pushbuttons. Never knew the owner but I assumed the station sponsored the Stude. The area was close to Crenshaw Square where the Brotherhood of Street Racers use to meet. Maybe some Brotherhood people on the board will remember the car.

    Hmmm...... This car used to have a big block Mopar with a torqueflight. Maybe it's the same car!!?
