  • Anyone see this one yet?

    I've heard people say that you have to either love or hate the front end of an Avanti. This one raises the situation to a whole new level.

    That is wrong on so many counts. Looks like Clark Griswold's family truckster in the front.

      Ugh![V]

      Miscreant Studebaker nut in California's central valley.

      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
      1960 Larkvertible V8
      1958 Provincial wagon
      1953 Commander coupe
      1957 President two door

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            Wow.

            Well, it's a perfectly good excuse to hack it up and put a '63 nose on it...

            if he wanted more cooling, why not just cut put louvered panels in the hood? That might actually look good...

              My initial reaction was a gut wrenching "oouhg!" I have nothing against the original Avanti styling...even though it is by far not on the top of my list...but this one is just UUUG-LY!

                    Speaking of The Griswolds: Didn't I see this Avanti up on blocks 'round back of Cousin Eddie's place on the prairie in the original Vacation movie? [:0][xx(] BP
                    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                    Ayn Rand:
                    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                            I don't think the grill mod is all that bad but the extra bumper parts under the turn signals are ghastly [xx(] I could even stand the center guards but those end pieces would have to go. Is it me or does the front end straight ahead shot sort of look like a mid 70s pontiac grand prix or perhaps a early cordoba??
