Here's a photo of me & Bob barrick (2R5) standing just aft of his Champ, the Fried Green Tomato. Cool guy (2R5) and a cool truck. I had the pleasure of talking Bob's ears off from Omaha to South Bend. Lots 'n lots of Studebaker things and dreams shared as we followed a friend's 58 Commander across Iowa and Illinois!
Thanks for the lift, Bob!

Kinda looks like the trim pieces that go over the doors in a C-cab truck. [?]

Bob, trust me - I'm GONNA be there next June. Even the wife wants to go along.[^]
Wish I could've stayed thru Sunday but my week at home went fast enough as it was.

Matt, you're correct, of course (that's why I quit trying to stump you with parts guessing!). Funny thing was, I paid $5 bucks for those and sold them for $10 about 30 minutes later. Got me to thinking, I could vend at South Bend and never take anything to sell. I'd just scoop up good deals and resell them to folks that didn't make it to the meet until later![:0][:p][^]

I wish you would continue your parts guessing game. I thought it was fun! I promise to hold my guess until someone else gets it. [8D] At a swap meet a few months ago, I happened upon a pitted up set of grilles for a '51 Stdue car. Paid all of $5.00 for it. 20 minutes later I sold them for $25. About a week later I saw an identical set sell for $75.00 on ebay. [}:)]

Looking good, TWOBOBS!!!
And now that I got a pretty good look at the Fried Green Tomato, I understand the name. That is one trick-looking bed cover, too, 2R5.

Just Curious--What is it like to drive a nice '58 like that around, especially cross-country? I'd estimate that 99.9999% of the people have never even seen one before. So, you must get some curious stares and comments, right? And, as always: '58's are Classics, too! Well, Aren't They?

Hey Bob while we're on the topic of 58's remember that friend of mine looking for a lower splash panel for one? He just let me know that its the passenger side hes looking for and you had said you may have one. If you do and would want to sell let me know.
