    They sure goofed on that one.

    But, their Kidney Beans look pretty good on Hawks. The spinners are current, low volume reproductions of the ones used on Studes.

          I wonder............ If a person were to fit Avanti name scripts to such a car, how many sunday car show goers would realize the gaff???
          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

            I have an Avanti script that I was thinking about putting on my '57 Wagon for that very reason.

              I have a president script on my 58 truck. When I put it there, Iwas president of the local chapter. I have only been asked about it once. By a President owner.
