View Full Version : Sunvisor

I remember in the fifty's that alot of cars had aftermarket parts on them. That what made the fifty's. I had a 1951 Pontiac with a aftermarket sunvisor. I also own a 1954 Olds with turnpike cruser skirts. What about cat eyes and white walls that were fake? That is what I remember about the fifty's. We did what we wanted to make it our car. To be correct is important,but not that important, I'm just glad to own a Studebaker....

Original - custom - modified - they ALL have their "devotees". Thing is, it's YOUR Stude and you can do whatever you want to it!;) That's not to say it won't garner critques or praise, but that's just the way of this world. Heh - if I took every critque I've been on the recieving end of to heart, I'd be a sniffling ball of misery.

Your memories are correct! There was a vast array of aftermarket stuff to doll up your ride back then. Much more so than there is today.
I would never put one of those aftermarket chrome, spinning propellors on the front of my bulletnose Stude but LOTS of people did! Simply a matter of personal tastes!:D

Yea, your right, I would never put a prop on my Studebaker.
