Which is the front view and which is the rear view? (I suppose you've heard that one before, right?) [8D]

The license plate changed and the bumper sticker disappeared. Boy you two work fast!
Now, 'bout that front prow...looks like it's been pushed in a bit. (The piece of body color sheetmetal just below the bottom edge of the hood--that has the cast metal bars bolted to it.) I have four of five of those, and none of them fit right. Thought I finally got a good one..and darned if only one of those bars bolts up to it correctly. The other one isn't even close.:(

jclary, Thanks for the nice mention about the home. We've been here for about 6 years. Its been a great blessing to us. We had been wanting to move out to the country for decades. We now have goats, sheep, cats, possum, skunks, quail, pheasant, jack rabbits...... etc. Then there are the 10 Studebakers here and there also. Of course the house has been a constant project since we got here, but we do love it. Thanks again.

Congratulations. That's one nice looking Starlight Coupe. From here the body looks like it's in really good condition.
I've been looking for one like that for quite a while.
Good luck with it.
