1961 Studebaker Lark - Sports Car Competition with Rex May "It' Swings Man"
Before people start ranking on this commercial....and say things like, "that's why Studebaker isn't in business anymore". The Lark was a very fun nimble can and very sporty in it's own right. The Lark Convertible Chassis was used for the Avanti. Super charged, these cars performed very well. As a kid, i recall going to lots of Modified Stock Car races where the Larks ruled in Islip New York.
