In the post about me looking at the 63 parts car for sale here in California this is some thing else I want share with every one, don't get offended to each his own, good use for the over sized out of place things.

That's funny Bob. Just look out for the guy who would kill for a set of those for the front of his 55 prez!

I like it Bob. A guy could put a larger tip to fill the hole totally if they wanted. What diameter are they ?

I was thinking someone should put a set of bullets in those and use them out front like Dagmars.

They look like the rear fuselage of a Lockheed F-94...

Cut them down and use them to french in 59 Buick Invicta tail lights. Instead of using the more popular 53 Chev front park light sourounds???

So after all these years, you STILL don't know if it's "coming or going"? :cool:

LOL. Well done, Bob. The weight may add a little to your time in the 1/4....

They look better in the back as bumper guards/exhaust tips than they do up front as bumper guards/fog lights. More suited to the 55-61 era than a GT? Perhaps... Would have made more sense than the 56-only sedan bumper arrangement as you could use the same bumpers. With a cone shaped filler in the hole (think funnel LOL!) and a black rubber doughnut cushion on the rim, it would have worked as both a bumper guard and an exhaust port. Would have made more sense with Studebaker to recycle even more parts for not originally intended uses.
