Aw come on, you're not even going to wax the paint? [:0];)

I've always thought that one of these would make a great little 2 seater roadster. [8D]

Our local tag clerk has a 51 business coupe that her dad bought new. It was restored by her husband, just before he passed away. About every 2-3 years, she calls us up to give it a tune up and a brake job so she can drive it around for a while, and then it goes back under the shed for another 2-3 years...

From the listing:

quote:No Business Coupes were produced with a V8 engine, but a Studebaker V8 will fit in one with very little effort.
That's exactly the thought that goes through my head every time I see a '51 biz coupe...

Ya know, Dick.... that one photo you've included of Dave Carter's blue beauty really says it all! Some (no - MANY) think of the bulletnose Studes as a cartoon car. I suppose, compared to the boring box contemporaries they faced back then, the bulletnoses must have seemed right out of Buck Rogers episode![:0]
But just LOOK at the graceful beauty of that Blue bombshell and tell me that isn't "Style" presonified. That svelte, sexy rear, intensified by those buxom hips - her prodigious, protruding front that can snag a guys gaze at 70MPH and that short, perky roofline all conspire to intoxicate a guy before he knows what's hit him![:X]
If I were Dave - ensconced in the bosom of that enchantress - I'm not sure I could pull myself out of her embrace anymore than was necessary to put more gas in the tank![:I]

Thanks Dwain.;) Gary, you're recalling my Xmas story that was in TW awhile back. Thanks![:I]
I've been trying to force myself to sit down and write that first book for years now. I guess I'm afraid of failing and having it been an effort for nada.[V]

Bob,

I have thought of doing some writing also, but a couple of things come to mind. What the hell do I know enough about to fill a book and if I did, who would want to read it?

See - we share the same self-doubt, Gary. I tell myself the words will come. But I worry that they'll be dismissed as prattle (well, some folks do already![xx(]).
I've had a storyline that I can't shake, a-botherin' me for almost a year now. It's about a flying boat crew that ends up backwatered in the Pacific in WWII. Of course, they had Studebaker engines on their trusty PBY (poetic lie-sense guys!) and they credit those seemingly unbreakable motors for part of the reason they've been able to survive.
OK, so I just made up the part about the Studebaker engines as I type this - but you KNOW I'd hafta work in a Stude car or two into the tale.[:0];)
Then there's Buster Beak
There's Bullet
and there's Mercenary pilot.

but I'm havin' fun right here!:D

Bob, you know I like the stockers as much as anyone, but I think these Biz Coupes were born to be hot rods. Lower it, loose the front bumper, and you're most of the way there [^]. I like them better than the hot rod Starlight Coupes of the same vintage. IMHO, done as a mild and tasteful custom like the car next to David's in my listing brings out the "graceful beauty" even better than as a stocker. Check the Canadian one under David's car in the August TW also.

One other thing...Matthew and David PLEASE knock off the "Mr. Steinkamp" stuff. I'm old enough and decrepid enough to deserve the "Mr." title ;), but like "Dick" much better! :D

So it's MR. Dick???[B)]

I won't argue your points EXCEPT to say (as you well know) they deserve Studebaker power. Not by any stretch THE ENGINE they came with (altho there's a real cool factor to a jazzed up Champion!), but a Stude V8 can be made surprizingly sprightly.
The Salt-2-Salt car and the Stude tomato are testament to such.

I too, like the Biz coupes over the Starlights and the 5-passenger coupes (watchin' for you, Gary[:I]). That short cabin and the resultant, long butt surpass the 5-passengers for grace and eye appeal.
