  • What a Great Hot Rod

    It's called the Stude Coupster. The best looking bullet nose I've ever seen []. It's still under construction.

    Aahhh, it's painted now.
    The last time I saw it, it was black primer.
    Hope the owner brings that to South Bend sometime soon, it will make the purists poop little gold rowboats.

      I first learned of this car just last week- in this post:

      http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com...TOPIC_ID=18087

      It's on this site:

      When I saw it I about fell off my chair!!! I wonder if the inspiration was that little orange flamed Hot Wheels car that came out a few years ago [?] I can't believe how much coooler it looks in full scale~ Sweet ride man, one sweet ride!!!

        It was inspired by a drawing by Tom Daniel (scale model artist), of a roadster version of this car.
        The little Hot Wheels "Bulletnose" just sealed the deal.

          I think I thought I saw that at least 6 months back or more. I wondered how far along that little beast was [}]. It just has that slick fighter jet look to it. If I ever needed a reason to get a bulletnose for a daily driven street rod project, that's probably it, lol.

            Heh! It looks like the Batmobile as rendered by Robert Crumb. (and that's intended to be a compliment)

            That is really, really cool. It looks like no other hot rod I've ever seen. THAT'S not hard to achieve, but to get a fresh, unique design that also looks good, that takes talent. The bullet nose, the headers, the portholes, and the rims; they all work together. My hat's off to the designer.

              I have absolutely no problem with non-stockers, but that one just doesn't do a thing for me...

              Although for some reason my eye was repeatedly drawn to that <s>nipple</s> center of the bullet

                I really like this car![8D] I wonder what kind of power it is using. Anybody know?

                  That's one great looking car well worth bringing to Lancaster this fall. I'd bring it in a heartbeat .

                    I've been in awe of that car since I first seen a picture of it, probably a couple years ago. The workmanship is just outstanding. Cool car, I really like it! And those Kidney Bean wheels really do the trick. [8D]

                      In the newest pics, the windshield sure looks like a convertible rear-window frame for 47-51 Studes!

                      I like the whole thing.

                      How 'bout a V12 Jaguar engine for something different[?]
