    Well, I've never dined on Stude stainless. I DO have some stainless butter knives out in the shop, but they're really unhandy with a piece of toast.

    Matthew, I'll bet you have a devil of a time with that watch!

      Bob: You have a frypan that has lasted over 10 years!?? I presume it does not have a teflon coating, because mine don't last very long before they are thrown out because the coating is coming off - dangerous to cook in. (Teflon is a carcinogen)

      How about tailights for red Christmas lighting? How about Hubcaps for Air cleaner covers, frisbees? Old drums for hub pullers? Front and back ends for wall hangings and couches? (probably only allowed in the mancave). Whole cars for themed Diners.

      How about: "I've got a real nice Studebaker grille. Can I trade you this very nice grille for a fry pan?"

      Not that I've done any of this. Actually, come to think of it, there isn't much is there?

          Actually, that lid has been used on several 12" fry pans. The glass don't wear out! BTW, the new WEAREVER Ceramic pans are REALLY Sweet! Not the green ones from the TV ads - these are gold on the outside and stark white inside. I've never had an easier-to-clean pan than these - and that lid works on it of late.

            This pales in comparison to youse guys, but my favorite Chrristmas tree ornament is a red teardrop from the center of a (probably 1942) Comm/Pres Phantom steering wheel.

              Hey Bob,

              A knob from '49 would have started out translucent (sort of yellow) with a black center button. The 47-48s were black with a gold center button. Unless they didn't change the lighter knob in '49.

                I use a pair of 65 wagon front end weights. One as a chock block. The other is now becoming more diverse by holding down-correcting a warped board on my back deck. As a matter of fact, I'm getting used to the rustic look and may just leave it there. A hilarious friend of my older brother said " It's so nice out, I think I'll leave it out"

                      I used Studebaker body/frame rubber pads on a John Deere 110, they fit.
                      I've seen Zip Van front windshields used for desk toppers, hoods used for sleds, and even heard of two triangular (as in pre-war, 1940s) hoods being welded together to make a boat!

                      Though not a "part", we have an old light fixture that came from the factory. A chain was added to the top and it hung over a pool table for years. The pool table got sold, but the light has since been put in the garage. I have a couple more and I'm thinking about hooking them up in the basement; I feel they give it more of a "factory" feel.

                        I know its not Studebaker but the car diner thing I have sat underneath a set of 32 ford chassis rails for lunch

                          A thoroughly cleaned, painted, and detailed Studebaker 6 or 8 cylinder 'flathead' cylinder head, (with spark plugs installed), makes an interesting and useful coat or towel rack..... (turned on it's side and bolted to
                          a wall), in the right enviroment!
