    This '61 Studebaker Hawk has probably been posted here, already, but here it is again! 2009-08-22-HAMB-Samples-04.jpeg WILD-DRY-HOPPIN-WHEELSTANDERS-GASSER-MADNESS-MELTDOWN-DRAGS-15.jpeg 608af74ab711c6ae3930633d407a3cd9.jpeg Suicide%20King%20Studebaker.jpeg RK_Meltdown_Drags139.jpeg 35381092553_09b0b5c200_b.jpeg hqdefault.jpeg CFtLl4jUgAAfdCx.jpeg 18-680x453.jpeg a0e25277db04438344c1b38967e2aef2--old-school-schools.jpeg redo3.jpeg

    1955 Studebaker 2-door SEDAN (not to be confused with the better-proportioned C/K-body COUPES). I'm a fan of the plain black version, but it's cool either way! FB_IMG_1574102351181.jpeg FB_IMG_1574102368210.jpeg RJP5678.jpeg

    The "Lark Ness Monster", based on a '59 Studebaker Lark VI.

    I sure prefer the look of the body before they dropped the rear and hogged out the rear wheel arches. But it isn't my car and they didn't ask me. :) nessie-2015-005.jpeg nessie-2015-010.jpeg nessie-2015-011.jpeg maxresdefault.jpeg c61a1317d483818e44389cb7d3ad8091--monsters-drag-cars.jpeg c2b7e33ae9a1430dac6b072c5dfda78c--monster-the-ojays.jpeg 1959-studebaker-lark-nostalgic-drag-car-gasser-altered-8.jpeg 1959-studebaker-lark-nostalgic-drag-car-gasser-altered-2.jpeg 1959-studebaker-lark-nostalgic-drag-car-gasser-altered-1.jpeg 1959-studebaker-lark-nostalgic-drag-car-gasser-altered-3.jpeg 52392667-726-1959-Studebaker-Lark-Gasser-LARKNESS-MO-min.jpeg

    You may want to move these to the "Altered wheelbase thread" where they belong. Very nice cars though.

    I have posted this picture before and apologize for posting it again. But this is, IMHO, stance for a Lark. Also I have a cherry grill for a 62 Lark for sale $14 plus shipping. Plus I will throw in a SnapFish calendar sized copy of this picture. What a deal. 11_25_0.jpg

    Can you imagine what that new race car smell must’ve smelt like, when this photo was taken in the 60s.

    Nice car...but...
    Boy...is that a narrow wheel rim on the back..! Those tires weren't made to be run like that. Note inner and outer sections of tread not even on the ground..!
    Looks like they may even be rubbing on the body.

    That is my watermark for the photos, to stop unauthorized duplication. ;)
     
  20. After leaving Kenosha Wi R+B Chassis Shop. Howard Kaye started his own shop in Racine Wi. Our local legend is caught here building a altered. The body is hanging to the right. The pic quality is poor I took it off a pic on his office wall today. He later started fat man chassis. Howard is on the right. 20191121_170135.jpg

  24. Roo, was there 2 M&M cars, or is the blown big block version a clone?

    Dean, there were two cars (and PWood does not do clones). The first one had been stashed away for many years and became available when the owner passed away. I made a minor contribution to the restoration of #1 by selling a Lakewood bellhousing that I had in my vintage parts stash. Unusual for a west coast built car to have a Lakewood can but that is what was in the car originally.

    I love to scrutinize pics of these old cars to see how it was done.

    Is that a steering damper on the tie rod bolted to the front of the engine?
    I think the panhard bar could have worked better if it were horizontal. At least it wasn't cross-steered.

    Some of their engineering choices makes the speeds they were turning even more remarkable.

    Flyer -

    The damper looks bolted to a tab on the bottom of the cross member to me. Don't see how it did very much good with the angle that it's at though. Did more to keep the tie-rod from whipping up and down more than from the tires shuttering.

    And yea, agree, the Panhard rod should be...just a tad more parallel to the axle to work a little better..!

    Dean, the first M&M car was a " Weddel " chassis and is now back in the hands of the Matsubara family. Grandson, Dane Matsubara is restoring it.
    The second M&M car was a " Schrima " chassis.
    That is the car I , Derek Bower & Karpo Mukajanian , restored .

    That would be Ed Weddle who also drove gassers and altereds and in later years specialized in Competition Eliminator dragsters and Ronnie Scrima who at one time owned Exhibition Engineering and built a lot of the early west coast funny cars.
