Going through some old photographs the other day I ran across this picture I took of my Uncle Vernon in 1960 with his '51 Studebaker. It's not very pretty, and the gas station sign on the door doesn't help, but it was really fast for its time. It held the E stock strip record at the local drag strip and sometimes he would run it in D stock just for the hell of it and usually won that, too. Notice the 4 trophies lined up on the hood in the picture. This is the car I learned to drag race in when I was about 15.
