Nicely done (I have no problem with flat black), love the blanked off side grilles. I still don't care for Benz-style grilles on Studes, but the red paint adds a cool dimension. I could drive it with a smile on my face!

Nicely done! Some great touches. Rear bumper, front sheet metal changes, steering wheel, etc. Says he wants $11-12 for it. Certainly worth it if it's not a rust bucket. You'd be the only one at the cruise night with one like this [:p].

Can you believe the kid is giving this up for a '69 Corvette [xx(].

I like that Hawk, too.

Gosh I told my son that this could be his new Hawk. He only needs to get a job to pay for it though. LOL

I was looking at a new magazine devoted to cars of this type. Is it okay to say "funky"? I do think it has lots of appeal, though. I also figure that it is part of a backlash movement against the high-dollar bellybutton street rods that lack creativity and individuality.

Cars of that style are becoming quite popular. Check out www.jalopyjournal to see what I mean. There are a bunch of magazines devoted to what some call "Traditional" rods and customs: Car Culture Deluxe, Old Skool Rods, Garage etc. They are an entertaining read. You sometimes see Studes rodded that way. In fact I kind of think my Lark would look cool as a gasser...

I too have wondered about setting up a Lark as a traditional Gasser. Straight front axle with front end jacked up, injector stacks coming through the hood, tilting fiberglass front end.....
