    I like seeing these photos of the museums I'll likely never get to go see.

    But I'm curious as to your camera that you're getting all these great photos using?

    Thanks for the kinds words—but it's just the camera in my low-cost android phone. I downrez them before posting so that they're not too large. The original resolution is c. 4000 x 3000, and these are c.1000 by 750. I heard about this museum about twenty years ago, or maybe more, and I wasn't sure if I'd ever go. But I'm glad I finally made the trek.

    This is interesting - I decided look for that apparent DD Lark on Google street view. I can see it on the aerial photo, and on street view it isn't there, but apparently its owner is into using an old car for a regular vehicle.

    That's some solid investigating! You should stop by one of these weekends and see if you can chat with him!

    1962 Studebaker Hawk in Fairbanks.... This is quite the rarity around here!

    I need to figure out which house it belongs to. I have a feeling I know - on the other side of the street, there's a house that kind of makes me think of Biff's grandma's house in BTTF, and it now also has a couple of whiny political signs. It also has a large garage behind it. I'll have to wait for someone to be outside with one of the cars, gives me a slight vibe that someone might throw a shoe at you (or worse) if you walked up to it.

    Hawk link doesn't work for me.

    A resto-mod two tone orange and cream 56 Bel Air coupe. The driver, a big fella around 60 was driving it like a jerk in our neighborhood. I was not impressed.

    Spokane Cars and Coffee, first time I have been to one. Not a huge gathering, but a few odd spots. Even another MB, a W124 400E, somewhat unusual and very clean, owned by a MB salesman who got it for his teenaged son, who is also into it. A little of everything from the 60s onward anyway. Nova appeared to be a street legal drag car, resto-mod Camaro was well-done, Mk 1 Jettas are thin on the ground along with clean Sciroccos, etc, I only stuck around for about an hour, as it appeared rain showers were coming, and someone doesn't like to get wet:

    Yep it's the "drag package" which included the 900 cubic inch engine with hi-riser and the parachute attached to the back B)

    That stuff doesn't get to me too much, such cars were being modified like this so long ago that these mods are almost retro now.

    Growing up in SoCal, I was exposed to low riders my entire life. I wasn’t keen on it then, but as I’ve gotten older I appreciate that those owners love their cars as much as we love ours.

    Same with the “stance” movement - while I wouldn’t like something like that for myself, I appreciate the idea behind it.

    I liked lowriders when I was a kid, those with metalflake paint and actual working hydraulics especially - maybe as I lived in eastern WA which has long had a strong Latino community, the cars were more common than in other places, so I was exposed to them. The 63 Impala in that pic had full hydraulics, too - thanks to lowriders, stock Impalas are not as common as their production numbers suggest.

    That stanced 240SX next to my car is pretty hardcore, and I would never want something like that for myself, but no harm done. It looked to be built properly anyway, - that's what counts. I know some don't like my preference for stock cars, but can appreciate them (fintail got many a compliment today, even from younglings).

    The lights may be ignorance, but the rolling coal - yeah, that's a conscious behavior, and it's annoying. A lot like the dimwits who ran their fog lights on their BMW's in the 80's.

    I'm not real fond of the '70 model nose. My uncle had a sedan. Not sure I've ever seen that year/model of Pontiac convertible, before.

    The foglights all day crowd seems to have migrated to taller vehicles, another thing that annoys is LED lightbars on brodozers - fortunately, a lot of that gingerbread seems to be bought from Wish or Alibaba, and isn't exactly durable (not that most of these pavement princesses will see off road use anyway). I can understand how pickups are the new full sized cars and cloned suburbanites will use them as commuter rigs, but I have to snicker just a little when I see lifted variants also living in tract house orchards where they are taken on unpaved roads about as often as I do similar in the fintail).

    Can one of the Studey experts tell us which engine that is? The lack of engine labeling leads me to believe it’s the base 289.

    In '62, all Hawks were 289's--2 barrel was 210 hp; 4 barrel was 225 hp. The "R" series engines weren't available until the '63 model year--R1 at 240 hp; R2 at 289. For '64, the R3 was also available (335 hp) but none were factory-installed in a Hawk.
    That powder blue is a correct '62 color although I can't think what they called it--I think Riviera Blue believe it or not.
    The back seat looks nice, but covers over the front seat make me wonder.
    The photo of the instrument panel makes me think something I simply can't stand about certain Gran Turismo Hawks--since there's no pics of a clock (left 1/3 of panel) or tach (right 1/3 of panel), I'd say the car is not equipped with them, which means there's big, blank woodgrained panels in both of those places, LOL.
    The valve colors were yellow from the factory on those cars.
    Still, pretty nice-looking car. Gran Turismo Hawks (particularly the '64) are my favorite Studebakers.
    I like that, as on concurrent Continentals, the bodysides are outlined in chrome.
  • uplanderguyuplanderguy Kent, OHMember Posts: 13,629
    Here's one I'd always loved to own. I remember this magazine issue. The car was purchased in 1969 by the father of the author, who was also the Feature Article author in the Studebaker Driver's Club magazine. It's Bordeaux Red, red cloth interior, 4-speed, factory A/C. The original owner was from CA and traded in a '57 Silver Hawk on it. He went to look for a Hawk in Feb. '64 which was a couple months after it had been discontinued. His dealer called South Bend with his requirements: stick shift and A/C, and this was one of the cars still in factory inventory there. He took it, and it was shipped by Studebaker to CA. It's still owned by the same family since '69.

    Jogged by the Lark - it wasn't there, but this car from streetview was parked on the street:

    Definitely a 10 footer, clean and straight, but not a concours trailer queen, which lends to the idea that the owner drives these cars regularly.

    Also saw a 62 Chevy sedan on the road, Bel Air or Biscayne, rattlecan paint job but was moving along fine with no odd noises, etc., and I think the same early 80s Corolla coupe I photographed some months ago.

    That was a fun read. I wonder how rare the small 6 is compared to the "big" 250.

    I had missed that it had the 230. Now that I think of it, didn't the 250 come with a badge on the front fender to that effect?

    Last night on the way home, what looked like a '57 Chevy except in the form of a hearse. Sort of like this except in a deep red with airbrushed flames and roses along the sides. Very cool looking, and was impressively powering up a long grade on the highway at around 70 (in a 55). Shortly after it flew by me, the drive let up to take a left up the road, and the car started pouring blue smoke out the exhaust. Haha.

    Well, it's like 65 years old now, so....

    Yes, it did. The 250 was a $26 option in '67. Our new Chevelle 300 Deluxe had it.
    The big Chevys with six that year came with the 250 (155 hp); the Chevy II, Camaro, and Chevelle came with the 230 (140 hp) and had the 250 optionally. Totally unscientifically, seems to me that over the years when I've seen sixes on the road (no V8 emblems) or at cruises or shows, they've been the 250, based on the emblem, versus ones I've seen with no emblem.

    I probably liked this most - 66 Fairlane in very original condition, not messed with like so many are. 289, blackwalls, wheel covers, manual brakes but power steering - looked like they did back in the day, old repaint had a nice patina, don't see them like this too much, everyone wants to be a GT:

    Near Presque Isle in Erie, PA this past Sunday, I spotted a white '64 Chevelle Malibu four-door station wagon, very clean and original-looking other than its slightly-lowered stance, big wheels and rubber-band tires.
    RE. the red Fairline--I've long-thought the '66 and '67 Fairlanes were the best-looking Ford mid-sizes, ever, to my eyes.

    Presque Isle is a nice area. Erie itself is a bit long in tooth, but there are some highlights! The maritime museum is a good visit.

    Erie gets pretty harsh winters, but I took this pic off the porch of our friends’ house last Saturday near sundown. And that’s no filter. I have a rather plain phone and wouldn’t begin to know how to apply a filter.

    Friends live in that house year/round and they themselves do winter maintenance on their street as the city does not in the winter.

    Post card perfect. Do they still make post cards?
