I'm going to mention once again that David Woodruff and Bob and I are working to get the landracing.com Photogallery loaded with lots of photos -- maybe including some of them posted in this thread.  If you have some that you'd positively like in the gallery -- make sure you let me know.  I'll arrange to get them into the thing.

We're going to separate them by some time unit -- maybe like "Historical" for those we don't know the date, and maybe "60s" and "70s" and so on.  And then there are the comments/captions -- if you have that information it'll make the Gallery even better.  Let me know -- and have at it.  Send your photos now and we'll get 'em posted all the sooner.

Later --

Curse these DOD computers! I can only view a very few of these photos at work... What the heck do these guys expect from me? Work?

These old pictures are great though... I will have to kick Colleen off of Facebook if I want to look at them when (If) I get home.

Edmonds/Cagle and Alpenfelds in 1964 - This is how a Studebaker is supposed to look. As I rmember(?) it they run a big engine and a smaller one that year. Pat

bob mcgrath drove off the line without a push to a speed over 300 mph then drive it all the way back to the pits just like your average 1964 station wagon.

  Pat, John Edmonds Studebaker is my all time favorite.  He was constantly changing the car, and my favorite was when it had painted (?) grills on it.   For anyone interested in a great interview with John, you can buy the dvd DREAMS OF LEGENDS which is a five dvd set, with one about Bonneville and another about the dry lakes. Check em out at www.Dreamsoflegends.com.  Bob

   Pat,
     If you Google "lakester for sale" you will find the 48-B for sale in , of all places, Butte,Montana for a mere $500,000. Now that's a dreamer.

When's the last time I told you that we've got a guy working to move as many photos as we can get - into the Photogallery archive off the home page of this site?  I'll mention it again (see above sentence) to remind you that these photos are going to be there permanently - as well as here.  Dave is working to move 'em - and we're hoping that he'll find enough information on each one to properly caption it, too.  We might end up having a select few of you working with us on the captions - folks that know lots about them, so we can have a bit of data as well as the photos.  Stay tuned, and keep checking the gallery.
