took the lark in for a front end alignment yesterday, guy comes over leans on the lift and say what year is this? 52 or 53? Its a 63. I had a 53 studebaker with flathead 6 and 3 speed no overdrive, had a 160 mph speedometer. not sure why though it would only run 130. Dude, that car wouldnt run 130 if you pushed it out of a plane with a rocket on its ass.
