    i've had that problem, especially with the '40 Champion. didn't really mind it unless they got too close. i installed turn signals with a emergency flasher. turning on the flasher backed them off. in the Avanti, i'd just floor it.

    Reminds me of a story from the 70's. PO of a r2 hawk got passed by a Corvette. Being a former dirt tracker he didnt like it. So he put the Hawk right on the Corvettes rear and put his face against the windshield. Scared the guy when he looked in the rear view mirror.

    About six years ago (when Bess was actually running and stopping) I would get this a lot at the controlled traffic stops on Buckhorn summit (hwy 299). People would get out of their cars and run forward to look and call back to their car, "I don't know, it only says Parkview!" I would lean out the window and tell them it's a Studebaker. Once I get the old girl back on the road, my plan is to get the Studebaker script from S.I. and put it on the tailgate. Yeah, yeah, I know not year specific, however the other motorists will likely appreciate it. Funny how Studebaker seemed to be somewhat ashamed of their name at that time...


    I haven't ever had anyone want to see under Bess' hood. Frankly I'd likely consider it rather rude. Something akin to asking for a look at my underwear...

    LOL. Most people ask "What kind of car is that?" "Who makes those?" It never fails that every time I pass a wino they yell "Studebaker!".

    Maybe she just had a speech impediment & was really saying "Your car looks right sweet!".......

    The first few thousand times of raising the hood, per admirers' requests, was fun. But somewhere along the line it became bothersome. Then too, some folks are so caught up in their admiration, they lose sight of the fact they may be annoying. I have had folks actually pull alongside and ask me to pull over and raise the hood, so they can see or take pix of the 56J's motor. I usually try to accommodate, but often feel like saying: "Leave me alone, I am trying to get to work." Or maybe a simple, "Get a life." But I never have said any of those things.

    I was rude once in the 1980s, when I had a 56J on the road as a rolling project. It was missing about half its paint, chrome removed, etc.. While sitting at a light, a girl beside me mouthed (so I could read her lips), "Your car looks like s--t." I mouthed back, 'f--- you". She then looked straight ahead and drove away. LOL

    Bumper Guards?

    I am scratching my Head trying to figure out WHAT Stude. would have Bumper Guards in front of a Nameplate?

    A 1951 with Bumper Over Riders?
