A parking lot is a parking lot is a parking lot—unless it’s the Summit Racing parking lot. On any given day or time, the lot outside a Summit Racing store can turn into an impromptu mini car show, depending on who’s stopped by the store. Each Wednesday, we’ll share our parking lot find of the week—another benefit of being Powered by Summit Racing Equipment.

Last week it was Plymouth; this week it’s Studebakeranother brand that made the The 5 Vehicle Makes You Want to Resurrect list. We spotted this 1963 Grand Turismo Hawk recently, and it reminded us once again that Studebaker made some damn fine automobiles in its day. Unfortunately, when Studebaker’s original South Bend plant went away, so did the Grand Turismo Hawk after the 1964 model year.
