I recently added a kitchen, family room and bathroom onto my house and I did the whole thing in a Studebaker theme. Below is my family room. I used half of an old Studebaker billboard on the wall.

Below is my bathroom. I used a 59-60 Lark front piece for the vanity mirror. The headlight lenses are 39 Chevy which fit perfectly.

I turned my old kitchen into a hobby room. The laminate on the countertops was designed by Raymond Loewy. He called it "Skylark". Formica has brought it back, but they call it "Boomerang". I put a white plexiglas cover over the old sink hole and put lights beneath it for a light table.

Leonard, dammit man - You're LIVIN' IT!!! Color me envious.[:p]

I'm actually doin' a bit of remodelling at the moment, but in deference to the better half, it will be with a bit more conventional decor.[|)] Still, I get to keep my coffee table/horn button display where I can see it - that is when it isn't covered with folded clothes or textbooks.[V] Then, of course - there's the office![^]

My Better Half high tailed it many years ago, that is why I get to do this kind of thing. I had 5 Studebakers when she left. When we were dividing up our possessions, I asked her about the Studebakers. She said "I never want to see that ---- again!". Of course, I had to sell them all anyway to pay the lawyer!:(

Leonard,

You need to relay the story about how you went to pick up your son and she asked there THAT Studebaker came from.

When my wife left me, I was about half way through restoring my 62 Daytona convertible (289 - 4 speed). I completed it after she left. I drove it to her apartment to pick up my son (he is the one sitting in the car next to a friend's daughter). My Ex asked where I had gotten the money to buy that car. I told her it was the one I was working on. She said "Is that the one with no doors?!). I said "It had doors, I just hadn't put them on." The bottom pic is what it looked like when it was finished next to my 55 Commander.

Heh - heh... Leonard, I know you've been asked about that signature photo of yours before, but now that I know about your dearly departed, I see that photo as a picture of you gesturing while you drive by her place! [:0][xx(][}:)]

If I did that, my wife would just look at me and say "Why don't you just go live in the car instead!"....
Pretty nice work!
