Gifford, why didn't you just buy the Stude #787?

Gary,

While you offer a fine car at a darn good price, I still have a vision of building my own.  Maybe a Stude, maybe not, that's what I'm still researching.

Charles.

Hello.

If you do not mind me asking, what size/diameter front tires are you using on your Studebaker?

Charles, I was just wondering, are you going to Speedweek?   John, I don't know what size tire Charles is using but I used 25" front tires.

Charles, I just got my issue of Hot Rod in the mail.  A nice shot of your car is in the magazine.  Do not buy up all the copies in the town where you live.  Go a few miles away and buy them there.  That way the local guys will find it.  Congratulations, it is a good looking car.

GH , I will not make speedweek with the Studebaker... I blew the E motor at Maxton in April, still working on it,, using a C motor now (temporary)  Have Maxton again in 2 weeks, then 2 weeks later Loring Maine,,, do not have the time, crew or money for Speed Week,,, working on September for World of Speed... or a sponsor for Speed Week 2012..

The Stude is so fun to Drive,, Can't wait to see what it does on the salt...

ONE YEAR LATER,

Oh wow it has been a full year since my Studebaker was finished. The good news is the Stude has set 6 class records at Loring,, 2 in 2010 and 4 so far in 2012... it has also set 4 records in Maxton during 2010/2011.   The bad news is the E motor hurt itself in April of this year, so I have been running a backup low HP C motor,,  however the lil "C" has went 177mph at Maxton and 188 at Loring,,, the E blowing up has ruint my plans for WOS this year at Bonneville.

I will be at Bonneville in 2012 with a NEW and "Improved" E motor...  

Here is a Pic from Maxton and a Video from Loring,,

Does anyone know if Charles is OK? He has not logged in since April 27, 2013, 11:02:51 AM. His website has not been updated lately also.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.
