    I always liked the Common Sense Car--the last Studebakers. Thanks for the pics!

    A true "sleeper" would look stock, not modified, but have unexpected peformance.

    The 390 was a GREAT engine and had sevaral trucks with that engine, but you may need a shoehorn to fit it into the Daytona. Would be different!

    I think that the stock appearing Cruiser looks the best. The other Cruiser looks like an old car trying to look like a newer car.

    The minor changes to the front end of the '66's sure makes the entire car look totally different. Both of these are quite nice looking cars.
