South Bend, IN – The Studebaker National Museum recently acquired the Bonnie Doon Special, a Studebaker-powered Midget race car. This car was built by W.C. “Barney” Barnum of Mishawaka, Indiana, in 1948, and sponsored by the Bonnie Doon Ice Cream Company. It campaigned extensively in the AAA Midget racing series in the late 1940s and early 1950s, both locally and nationally. It’s best finish was in 1953 when it carried driver Rex Easton to third place in the season-end rankings.
