    Rich, is it just me, or do other people actually like to see identifiable parts of an engine under the hood of a car, rather than a generic plastic blob like you see when the hood opens on a hand-held model car? Personally, I like to identify rocker arm covers, wires, carburetors (or FI systems), air cleaners, and, of course, batteries and battery hold-downs!

    Anyway, cute car; looks nicely done. Is that a Studebaker Conanomad? BP

      It's not just you Bob. While I can appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into making one of those covers, I don't like them.

        Thanks, Howard. Now I can cancel my appointment with the psychiatrist this afternoon. BP

          Keep the appointment..... Just kidding. I like all the work into this car. I too don't like engine covers. They mask the identity of the soul of the vehicle.
          I would love to see this car with proper 54 side grilles.

              That is one of my favorite cars of all times. It actually started as a '54 4 door sedan. Motor is a 500 Cadillac I believe. Thanks for another picture of it! Here are some more

                Stunning. The workmanship appears to be amazing.

                  Some great work went into the car, but the work also killed the Stude soul of the car. The Pontiac roof puts an unmistakeable GM stamp on it. Its hard to tell what the back end it. I also do not care for the engine cover.
