      I have two suggestions for you~
      • Understand that it's not even been 24 hours since you first posted this. Not everyone comes here everyday, some folks are only here once every couple of days, or maybe once a week!!!
      • Try the Packard Hawk site~ http://www.packardhawk.com/

        With over a hundred hits, I'd say at least 75 people know about it.
        Whether it is worthy of comment to that particular 75 people is more the question

          This '58 Packard Hawk is missing it's front bumper, I guess that makes it a CUSTOM! [:0]

            I have seen this Packard Hawk in February .. it is being restored in steps and the bumpers etc . are presumably now at the chromeshop. It belongs to a gentleman in NJ. He has been around with Studebakers for quite some time.

            I took some pics when I had a chance to take a quick look at it. I posted just two into my album

                That looks a lot like a Packard Hawk that I did a lot of work on and arranged a couple of sales of in the 1970s. I know, all 588 look somewhat alike. The one that I am thinking of was all the color of the roof of that one, the last that I knew, and the car was in NJ.

                  [] Anyone notice this Lark earlier in the selection? The custom fender flags even suggest Studebaker power, but I don't know. BP

                          Ohh, that's sharp! I love them stock/original, but they do lend themselves well to custom work (done right, of course!)

                              None taken. I just tend to tell it like it is from time to time. Think about it- A week might be something, 24 hours is nothing. As you can see~ 24 hours (+ or -) is when folks begin to respond to something like this. Give your posts a bit of time, my friend.

                              Any luck with that Packard Hawk site as yet? I poked around and didn't see any pictures of that car in there. Those guys/gals might be interested to see it.

                              "ask the man who owns one..."

                              You never know~ sometimes '58 Packard owners can be a weird and crazy bunch from time to time!!! Oh wait- I'm one of those guys!!!
