        VERY nice looking Studes!

        Did anyone notice that Ash White Paint on those two? It is an unusual looking White, it has more Grey in it than the very close Color used on '64 Studebakers, Astra White.

        It also probably is a Pearl White, which may cause the Grey tint.

            Notice, it is the "Starliner Coupe". Pretty rare.

                  Who cares what it is? Other than "BEAUTIFUL".
                  Man I love flames!!
                  On a personal note I had a picture on my inspirational board for over 20 years of almost the identical car. Wore the ink of the picture showing it to evryone that came to my shop....always saying I would have one just like that someday. Saw another one on the internet a couple of years ago that was the flip...Red with traditional flames trailing to white. Pinned it up next to my worn picture of the 54 and have been using it a s my inspiration as I finally build my lifelong dream car.

                    That car and truck belong to Jim & Jo Greedy. Sadly Jim passed away in 2010.

                      I am real sorry to hear that. We saw him at La Palma on the way to the International last May. They made some special presentations for him then. He did not look well at that time. I got to meet Jim at several Pac SWest Zone meets and enjoyed his company. RIP

                        Sorry to hear about the owner. He also had a matching Cushman motor scooter at the Omaha International Meet along with the coupe.

                          Maybe time is playing tricks with me, as I went out in the shop this morning to look at my (very small) faded & rubbed to death picture to discover that it was a picture of this exact car. The caption read that it belonged to Jim Greedy.
                          Wow! How long has it been on the road in this configuration? Does anybody know?

                            1) Excellent thread title for this shot.
                            2) Two beautiful customs.
                            3) If that coupe doesn't have an air suspension, the speed limit is 2.
