I really enjoy all the great photos of the cars that are being posted lately, THe eye candy and such. Standing in the shop today and enjoying the veiw I see daily, in this case a couple convertibles in progress , the one on the rack is all stock, the one on the round a custom. Both were brought back from the dead. JUst thought I would share that veiw with youhttp://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t242/oltrknut/IMG_4984.jpg

My friend Dave and I had a great time at Allen's Studebaker Emporium last Thursday. If you get to Eastern Washington, you owe it to yourself to stop in and see what Allen is working on and the stuff he has in inventory. It will blow your mind! [:0]

In this same building (and there are several others) are John Boyle's Avanti Red Avanti and Irv's Turquoise one...both just finished with flawless base/clear paint jobs.

There is one other special bullet nose convert (under construction) in this building also. Any pics of that, Allen?

Dick this is the third one , cant tell much looking at it, but it is progressing, the one on the rack moved to the upper shop today for final body work, the one in this picture is done in fabrication today, the custom has much more to do.[http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t242/oltrknut/IMG_4980.jpg

If you don't post frequently, I'll drive from Michigan and setup camp in your shop just to keep up on what you are doing.[:p]

An I don't drink cheap beer or wine, just so you are warned.

Allen isn't in the middle of nowhere, but you can see it from there [^].

You'd have to pack a lunch to make a beer run. :D
