        I would love to use this car for a cover on TW. The color is something else but this particular photo is too busy. There is too much distraction (especially the fence) drawing attention from the car. The angle is good but the background needs altering.

            JB; That's a really beautiful car! Are you sure that front end alignment is good? It is a little hard to tell with the wheels turned, but she looks a little bit in at the top, like negative Camber.

            Some of it could be caused by sagging springs, straining under all that engine weight! But if you can visually see them in at the top, it needs upper "A" arm bushings and or alignment to allow the tires to wear evenly and handle well.

            Before a long drive, it would be good to know it's correct!

                It is a nice looking car, but it does look like it has sagged or incorrect front springs by the nose down attitude of the car and the set of the front wheel.

                    That might be, but IMHO, the stance is much more attractive than the usual Studebaker nose high one. If the front end has no worn parts, the alignment is correct, and it's not wearing tires, I'd leave it just as it is...PERFECT! []

                        I agree that the stance looks good and I also don't like nose high cars, but I believe that the rocker panel should be parallel to the ground.
