  • eBay Silver Hawk - Needs Bumpers

    Why would someone spend money making this so pretty, and then put a pair of sory old bumpers on it? It escapes me!

    To me, it's the "It'll do" mentality. Why do the wiring harness correctly when 10 bucks worth of red sleeving will cover the wires. Why spend money on plating the pot metal, just paint it gray and the bumpers will do as is. The missing stainless under the grill is expensive, so just leave the holes. Door panels are expensive, just screw some cardboard on for the Pro street look. I tend to go to the other extreme,and replace things that won't add a dime to resale, but we all cut a corner now and then. That's just my thought process, others may think the car is the bee's knees.

        I like the "rattle can" treatment to the entire underside. Come to think of it, it looks like they used ONE rattle can to do the entire undercarriage.[}]

        My next Studebaker is in the future, but now getting my hair messed up in a Sebring ragtop!
        Almost as fun as a Studebaker!

            Overall very neat looking, but definetly cut many corners to save $.
            Just wonder mechanically where they cut corners? Would be a great buy under 10k.
