    I would concur. The original looked much better.

      I have to admit it is an interesting interpretation of the original. I too like the original better, but as an artistic exercise this is pretty nice. It helps to have a pretty darn nice original to start with and this artist/builder picked well.

        I wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen driving it, but I don't see much resemblence to an 810/812 Cord mentioned in the story, other than the horizontal hood trims. And it sounds like it would be fun to drive!

          It might work well in a Disney movie.

                Don't hold back, Bob; tell us how you really feel about the Extremeliner.

                However, it does fall into those I'd take as a gift.

                  Ugly enough in some ways but I reckon that some rubber on the rims would kinda make more of a car of it... The interior is something they would have to poison me for to get in to thou!
                  As for the "Cord" trim, check out 1942 Chrysler as well.

                    I would call it a gross caricature of what a '37 Dictator woodie should look like. I don't think any actual Studebakers were destroyed in making it, though.

                      Adding ear buds to Leonardo Da Vince's Mona Lisa doesn't make it any more acceptable to modernizing than this God awful eye sore!

                        Posie's Extremeliner has been around for well over twenty years and it is what it is; pretending to be nothing else.
                        He started with a sedan he purchased near where I live; I had actually looked at it in the garage where it had been stored for years when it was "not for sale."
                        For a number of years the Extremeliner also appeared on the box of Dynamat® insulation.

                            Holy Mary, Mother of God! Excuse me while I reach for the absinthe. While I do appreciate the mountain of work the customizer put into this car and I am usually more appreciative of the unusual, this just looks like a caricature of one of The Great Gatsby’s pleasure crafts! It has that unfathomable roofine, a bulbous front end, and a paint color that is reminiscent of the morning after a great night out. I’M DONE.

                            1962 GT Hawk - "Daisy-Mae" - she came dressed to kill in etherial green with a charming turquoise inside. I'm hopelessly in love!

                              That pretty well describes it, although unfortunately a 37 was destroyed to make it.
