    Interesting design comparison between a 38 Studebaker and an Airflow. Which has the best body lines.

    I vote for the lovely lady straddling both cars!

            I think the Stude is nicer for rodding and just a classic look, but if you want odd cool, the Airflow for me.

              I think for classic looks and maybe a sweet rod base, the Stude. But if you want a cool, odd looking different ride it is the Airflow for me.

                  Front of the Airflow sort of looks like a Divco. Any relation in designers?

                    Not to bad mouth Studebaker....but this was a good way to make the Chysler Airflow look better!

                      They're both nice, but the Airflow is the one I'd have as it was so different to the other cars of that time.

                        Am I the only one on this forum who owns a '38 Studebaker and a Chrysler Airflow?? Actually the airflow is 1/3 mine purchased recently along with 16 other cars out of a PA estate, it is a '36.
                        The Coupe Express is 100% mine. Incidentally the Airflow is to be sold, the Coupe Express is not on the block at this time. Guess that shows my priorities. Now if I just need get that blonde to cooperate, though I have a brunette in mind.

                          What a shame you'd have a classy car with the Airflow :-)~

                            It could be yours!

                            Are you saying the Coupe Express isn't classy??

                              34 Airflow

                              The Coupe Express is just the nuts, but the 34 Airflow also makes my top ten list of great looking cars.

                              While we are on the subject, the 36 Toyota version of the airflow is not an awful looking car.

                              My neighbor was ten when the 35 came out and he clearly remembers how much people disliked it.
