    He's just laughing because his wife just told him he could buy it alright but he'd have to put a bra on it before the neighbors saw it.

    Mr. -- "Gee, they're putting hood ornaments on the decklids now?"

    Mrs. -- "My goodness, It's so pretty. I wonder what the front of the car looks like!"

    Salesman -- "Uhhhhhh..."

    I've got one NOS "Studebaker Commander" hubcap is anyone needs one.

    A '50 Commander or Land Cruiser is one Stude that I hope to own someday.

    Chuck Collins also had the plastic inserts on the fender ornaments reproduced. I have 3 1950 Commander starlights. One has the hubcaps that say "studebaker commander", one has the hubcaps that say "Studebaker Studebaker" and the third has the style that does not have any lettering on them! I looked in the parts book and apparently all three styles were used of these 11 inch caps

    Looking at the '50 Starlight on the showroom floor, I was reminded of the time when my dad took me down to the local Studebaker dealer to see the new cars. He was always preferred to buy the independent makes. I was 10 years old in 1950 and when I saw the new Studes, they blew me away. They were the most beautiful cars I ever saw. I still feel that way today.
    We did end up with a '51 Commander State convertible. I really loved that car. We had it for a long time. I got to drive it to college in my senior year in 1958-'59. I was a commuting student at St. John's University in NY.

    The mister: "Not nearly as much chrome as that Buick we looked at."

    The missus: "Whatever you want, dear. It's nice an' shiny - I'll say that."

    To: StudeRich,------------ Whitewall tires have become so second nature to Us over the years it is probably hard for You to remember that they were few and far between at the beginning of the Korean War--Showroom or not!

    My parents owned a gray '50 Commander Starlight, while riding in the back with those wraparound glass panels I usually fantasized I was in something like a tail gun turret. Neat car, had whitewalls, wheel trim rings and a dealer-installed spotlight. It was also painfully slow with that Automatic Drive introduced in late '50.

    Probably selling it because they couldn't get cell phone reception inside... ;-)
