This is our Studie... a 1953 Studebaker. In 1978, the car was a record holder at 255 MPH. In 1981, the Studie went to the Wendover, Utah, museum until we purchased the car in June 1999. In September 2000, after many safety and equipment updates, we reached our goal to get it back on Bonneville Salt Flats. The car is powered by a stock 1954 Hemi, in which we are slowly replacing and updating pieces to hit our high performance in goals of getting the record. These photos are from the Bonneville Salt Flats at Speed Week 2001.

Thanks.
