    Geez, I'm gonna get better with this camera eventually. Man, I miss my vintage Minolta. That camera's results are legendary. Damn thing died on me tho as well as the 3-year old Samsung I was using.

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

      Those look much better on your Provincial than they did on that Pacer

        Mr. Biggs,

        My 64 Cruiser is rolling on a set of them now (of course it also has a 305 under the hood too).

          Cool! Yeah, I wuz gonna use them on my stillborn '63 Daytona. After that, I considered running them on ebay. They'd bring damned good money there![}] But once I got this Provincial, I assigned them a new mission. Toss in a free set of white-lettered and there it is. I like it.

            Looks great!!

            You gave me an idea: I have a 96 Linc. Continental with really sharp factory chrome rims... after seeing yours, I thought those Linc. wheels would look awesome on my wagon!

            Of course, wrong bolt pattern [V]

            Actually, I'd like to keep the stock hubcaps; but am told stock rims won't fit the disc brakes... anyone know what rims (15") will fit disc but take the stock caps?

              some Ford or Chrysler rims will work in 15x5.5 or 15x6 sizes, the MoPar cop car rims in 15x7 will even work, at least on a C-K.

                Bob,
                Are you trying to make a "low-rider" out of a perfectly good Studebaker stationwagon? Trade those vintage 14" AMC wheels in on something 15" to get that buggy back up off the ground! It does look good though. At least better than "dubs and band-aids"

                          OK, camera sobered up a bit. AND, as much as I wuz reluctant to, I've added a pic of the car as it sets today. I'll be working on it all day today. Maybe I'll make some visible progress.

                          freak, I've got a couple old SLRs like that too. With the advancement of the digitals, I practically feel hamstrung when I don't have a working one to use! I was smitten the first time I downloaded the pics off my first one![]
