The interior is really nice. Too bad they ruined the car trying to "redesign" it.[xx(]

I guess I'm just used to going to these cruise nights where there are 200-300 cars. (But only 1-3 Studes.)

I dont like it. I could see it appealing to some people but not this people. i like the hawks just like they were. or close to it. the money and time they spent redesigning the tailights the could have atleast figure out how to extend the stainless trim and take the white stripe to the back of the car instead of stopping in the great abias.

Those inserts in place of the grill stick out like a severed arm. I'd have to return it to normal.

Guard: Where are you going in such a hurry?
Gorrak the ranger: Uhhh...Gorrak have quiche in oven!!
Guard: well hurry along.

I really like the steering wheel; that's exactly what I would pick if I were to do an aftermarket wheel. The dash and console is nice too. As for the exterior... well... I wouldn't have done it exactly like that :)

Greetings, All,

The interior does grow on me. It would be really nice if someone had sweated a bit more on the details like the headliner. However, wouldn't want to be seen near the exterior.

Having said this, I am building a custom Hawk and am certain some will complain I ruined a perfectly good '56 Power Hawk by putting on a '64 GT front end, a '53 deck lid and a front bumper on the rear. If I were to ever consider selling it, I'll be sure to remember, instead of bragging, just to run an ad which says, "I built this car the way I wanted it. If you like it bid on it. If you don't, keep it to yourself!!"

thnx, jv.

I'm personally not crazy about the practice of posting a picture of somebody's car, then listing all the things we don't like about it. Seems rather petty and snobish to me to do so.

Are we quite sure the owner of this car is not a member here? Would we really walk up to him at a car show, look him in the eye, and call his car ugly?

I hope (as a group) we don't become known for this. It's a great way to drive off exisiting members and to scare off potential new members.

Ok Dick, I'm not knocking the car, but would someone explain to dumb old me why a 350 sbc would have Ford pistons in it? What, are Chevy parts now MORE expensive than F**d parts?

Back in the 80's I complained with little result that feturing only the best model railroads in the major model railroad magazines would and do scare off potential modelers. This also applies to or hobby, we need to encourage folks, even if their results are not the greatest they put hours and dollars into something they are proud of.

Sure we can find fault with every vehicle, weither or not the dash in the aforementioned car was not done to somebody's taste, or th e fins/grille did not meet what we like, the mere fact that the guy put in either a DVD player or GPS screen and brought the interior up to what a contemporary car has, is neat. I wish I had the time, money and imagination, and more importantly the talent.

The picking is one reason I quite having my cars and truck judged. Every one of my 5 Studebakers and my wife is modified. Back in 1983 my transmission went out in the 51. They wanted $750 to rebuild it. I didn't know anything about SDC at the time. I went to a police auction and bought a Dodge police car that just had a rebuilt engine with about 10k on the motor. I bought it for $500. I stuck everything under the 51 including the frontend. But not the rearend it's out of a 79 Dodge Dart 8 3/4. The speedometer place in Tulsa had a new oddometer that fit the 51. All zero's. It now has 131,000 miles and still running. Thats almost 24 years. But I like to drive Studebakers and tell people about them. It looks stock on the outside and inside. But I have power and air which I do like. And I done it the way I wanted it with my money.
