My name is Damian. Im from south Louisiana. This is my first post (newbie) here. I picked up a nice Transtar from a buddy of mine. My username is Noreces (No Recess) because I don't play! Haha. I've been using that name for a while now, I started using it when I did a custom plate for an old Chevy C10 I built and I've stuck with it ever since.

I'm going to try and do a build thread on my studebaker that I am building. I know it's a little different them normal and I hope I'm not shamed for it, but I think it'll turn out great.

Ill post up some pictures when I get around to figuring out how to.

Heres the the basics of the truck:

58 Transtar. 112" wheel base.
98 s10 extended cab frame.
Air ride suspension
355 SBC and 700r4 transmission.

Its essentially going to be a restomod. It's going to have some modern features underneath, but from the outside and inside it will be as original as possible.

Comments are welcome! I hope y'all will appreciate it as much as I do.

Save the leftovers, some of us could use that original stuff.
