The car with more, for '54! Studebaker!
I had been scouring the web for a while looking for the best looking '54. I think I found it.:D[8D]

Chris,

That is a nice 54 but I must stand up for a fellow Oklahomian, StudeDude and nominate "Sheba" the SDC's most famous 54 who is extremely jealous of any car that StudeDude may cast a wandering eye towards. Here's Sheba at last year's OKC spring meet.

There is something about the '54 grill that I really like. Two very nice examples. As many can attest Stude Dave's Sheba is truly fine piece of machinery. I enjoyed by ride around the road course during the 2006 International Meet.

I have a random question. You all know how the grille design is called an "egg crate"... Has anybody actually ever put eggs in a '54 grille just to confuse people[?][:p];)[8][:o)]

I'm not sure what color the 54 is but it appears to be close to the color my Avanti is going to be painted. Dodge "Inferno Red Crystal Pearl coat"

Here's what it looks like on a Dodge Challenger ...

there was a stock-looking '54 at York with almost that exact color combo (first pic, that is.) Was really stunning, is that a stock color? The depth and slight pearl of the red really did something.

I'd be remiss in not nominating Dick Steinkamp's old car for some kind of sweet looking '54 award, as well. Don't have a pic handy but it was a truly stunning car, and the interior looked just as good as the outside.
