    Well, that's a neat pat on the back, but I'm betting that few recognized it as a Stude. They just liked the profile and exposed mechanicals (as Ed Roth used to say).

    Just 1 inch of clearance...even 1/2" of shadow. That's all my imagination needs.

    I am seriously digging those brushed Centerline smoothies, though.

    Nahhh I'm just an idea man with these items. While I do my own work on my own stuff, I just drop the bug in his ear in this instance and sits back to see what happens. [)]

    Even better if one were really savvy they could go the Lightning route with the AC compressor, where the compressor(and system) could be used as an intercooler for a supercharger setup. These compressors as well as emissions smog pumps could also be retrofitted to any, ahem, small displacement go kart, thereby making a supercharger out of the compressor. Before getting into technical why's and the logistics of what seems like insanity, remember, an AC compressor, a turbo, a supercharger, and the electric compressor are designed with about the same purpose and functionality of a compressor, to move air from here to there.....

    it looks to me that the compressor is used to power the air bags. check out the filter on the intake side.
    Hmmm. an engine driven compressor, versus an electircal. I'm no AC expert, whats the cfpm (cub ft per min) of a SADEN or even better the top psi it can build in this configuration? I've seen a compressor get a gauge to 85lbs on a clogged GM system, SLOWLY mind you.

    I bet there's a pressure switch that kicks on the compressor's clutch.
    looking at the wiring that follows the pressure line.

    Well now, THAT makes sense (to me anyways)[]
    If that's what they are using it for, then I am impressed at that use[8)]
    Wonder how long Sanden seals will last without oil?

    If every vehicle has to fit into some specific criteria to be appreciated, you're missing HUGE parts of a very enjoyable hobby.

    Saw this car at SEMA. I noticed the guage cluster on the dash, and sure enough it was a Stude... It was great to see a Studebaker there in any configuration.

    Jack, Dick, Right On. There's room in this hobby for all types and sizes. I love the big money cars. They're not my cup 'o tea, but I do love to look at em.
    Interesting point.

    If I have to buy cars on my budget (and I do ), this car wouldn't be in my collection.

    If I had unlimited money (), but could only own 5 cars ([V]), this car wouldn't be in my collection either.

    If I had unlimited money and had a 40,000 square foot building to store them in (can you say Jay Leno?), I just might own this one.

    It's all relative. If you have to visualize owning the car under your present circumstances, it limits the cars that can appeal to you. If you can enjoy the car WITHOUT that limitation, it opens up a whole new car world.

    Besides the lack of windows, or the desire to drive with the a/c on and the top down.......
    Look REAL close at the compressor lines and tell me how it works...
    I want to know.

Plus, you never know where you'll get your next great idea. I've seen some very curious front suspensions on some of these super low cars. It gives me ideas on how to build mine. Great car, though.
