    Hard to tell which car is for sale. The first photo shows mismatched head & tail lights, in the last photos they are matched (Buick).

    Somehow I suspect that copious pharmaceuticals were dispensed during the design and construction.

      Corley, I believe that You are confusing the end result, which apparently You do not like, with the time and effort it took to 'create' this result. As I said before, the builder should be complemented for all that work.

          Corley, This custom came out all wrong....IN YOUR OPINION. The builder should DEFINITELY be complemented for what was no doubt a lot of hard work...(a fact)...and that's MY OPINION!! 'Nuff Said!

Part of "creating" a look is creating something that is pleasing to the eye. This one came out all wrong, regardless of the effort, and the builder should have recognized that his work was not turning out well, and changed the plan. There is a little bit off, and there is a lot off. This one was way way WAY off... It just looks hideous, and the builder, being the designer, is responsible.

              Depends on the neighbor, I might compliment mines killer

              If not deserving of compliment, aren't you at least impressed(in one way or another)? Maybe not his work(although I like aspects of it) but his skill deserves compliment.

                After sleeping over this attempt at 4 wheel art my conclusion:

                Sacrilegious
                Blasphemous to the cult
                Consequential reaction to an abusive childhood ?
                Same iron sculptor who did the Blue Horse at DIA?
                Praise of effort in this case is extension of every kid deserves a ribbon mentality.
                Effort <> Success
                Didn't like tail dragers without wings in 1955 and I don't like them today.
                Fail

                    Again, removed by poster as this should have been in a PM to SN-60, not in the forum... My apologies to all.

                        Wow. Hope the builder, who has hundreds of hours in planning and building this car and is probably very proud of his work, doesn't look at this forum! I'm sure he would really be glad to join after seeing all the asinine comments.

                        I can see it now: this owner finds out there's an SDC. Then, he finds out there's a Club meet nearby. He thinks, "Hey, there's a group of people who love their Studebaker the same as I! I think I'll go see if I can make some new friends!" So he shows up, sets up a chair, dusts off his creation, and waits with a broad smile to meet people.

                        But then, here come the cranks from this thread. They walk up, and he gets out of his chair and starts to extend his hand... But then he hears them sneering and taking cheap shots at his work. Here he thought folks would appreciate all his hard work, but instead they're pointing and laughing derisively. Heartbroken, he slips behind the wheel and slinks away from the meet, with a permanent negative impression of Studebaker people.

                        Well, why WOULDN'T that happen? If you'll ridicule something that isn't exactly how you like it here, certainly you'll do it to their face, right?

                        Sometimes this forum makes me chuckle. Tear down somebody's car and hard work all you want, that's great... But by God, nobody better try to help somebody correct even the tiniest spelling or grammar flaw!! Everybody will jump to the rescue! LOL

                        Brilliant logic.

                            Being a studebaker "fan" it sucks to see a fairly decent car taken apart. But I don't see much reason to criticize people's imagination. Granted his end result is not what you or I would like to see. But oh we'll... We don't have to buy it. I have criticized people's work before but life's to short to complain. If people didn't attempt to try we wouldn't see cars like the tucker or maybe even the design of the bulletnose studes.

                              If one takes a good look at back-issues of Hop-Up magazines from the 1950's, one would see many contemporary cars customized similar to this project. It wouldn't hurt for whoever buys this project to look over 50's era customs in period magazines to create a retro-fifties custom.

                                I'm just tired of folks rippin' other folks. I would love to see a whole day go by where everyone played nicely together, but I don't think it'll ever happen.
