    I've used the repro and the foil crest is is quite different for example. Maybe there is more than one reproduction. BTW, not knocking the repro's that hard since it's often impossible to do a perfect example at a reasonable cost. I've sold the repro's on ebay too, and never had a complaint.

    I have a repro hood ornament that is as nice as any N.O.S. I've seen. I thought list was about $95.00. Are you sure you saw the repro? I doubt you have. Stephen Cade

    You can tell the difference from 10 feet, it's just a OK reproduction.

    Yes, but the repro is not near as nice as the NOS 63 ornament.
    I would ask, how could the NOS be that much nicer than a brand new repo? I'd like to see them side by side.

    Say, guys, so as to not reinvent the wheel, why not just reprint the July 1995 Turning Wheels? Has someone introduced any new Studebaker hood ornaments since Fred Fox completed the excellent feature article therein? [?] BP

    At least where I'm from, there were three things that folks always wanted off any junk car- horn button, keys, and hood ornaments! This seems universal- even those that have absolutely no interest in cars wanted to keep these. Maybe that's why there do seem to be lots of hood ornaments...

    This week there was a 63 Lark NOS hood ornament. The seller had a starting (minimum) bid of $150! SI has new ones for $79.95[)]
