    Studebaker HHR?

    Does he really think it will fool anyone? Lol!

    I want to know where he got those Chrome looking "Studebaker" letters on the tailgate! They are very nice looking and remind me of the ones on the Avanti Motors Studebaker "XUV" prototype, but were never used on a "real" Studebaker, that's for sure.

        Too bad the "funding" ran out... I wonder what it would have turned into..?? I think it would have been easier to "convert" it into a PT Cruiser..

          WTF? World Trade Federation? Western Tree Frog?

          On a different note, does Ch*vy make an HHR SS, or is that part of the Studebaker spoof?

            The "SS" is an error, one he made Gravely, I fear. Just goes to show that maybe he doesn't know enoungh about Ch*by history--or Packard either "ask the man who owns one"

            Sad, I have resisted even looking at this on Ebay for several days, but get it on the Forum and I'm off like a shot taking it all in. The part of the ad that just gets me is this:
            THIS IS A 2007 CHEVY HHR LS THAT I HAVE BEEN CONVERTING TO A STUDEBAKER BUT HAVE LOST FUNDING.

            Good grief!!! Someone was funding him to do this?

            Now, if he REALLY wanted to do a Studebaker tribute, since the rear end lights are similar to a 58, then he should have tacked on little fins at a 75 degree angle. Chrome trim on the sides, and of course a two tone paint job. If its a station wagon tribute as well, make the roof leak.

              Geez you guys, it just looks like the guy's a Stude fan and was having fun personalizing it to his taste. I know of several modern Big 3 daily drivers who make no effort to hide the brand, but have added Stude emblems and/or decals to show their love of Studes. No harm that I can see.

              'Converting to a Studebaker'? I think it was just a less-than-ideal choice of words.

                    Interesting thing is....He could actually enter it to be judged at an SDC event.
                    There was a GMC pickup in Charlotte a few years ago that was entered to be judged..

                      Great idea. I'm going to get some Rolls Royce emblems and decals and convert my old Chebby pickemup.

                      What was worth $900 will then be worth $150K.

                      A new face on my Seiko will make it a Rolex. Yours for only $8000.

                          Didn't do much to Studebaker it up. I showed it to my wife who drives an HHR and asked her if she wanted me to do that to her car. She didn't even hesitate her emphatic no.....

                              To a potential HHR buyer he has probably decreased its appeal but WHAT THE HECK. Just proves the Studebaker name is not lost on some.
