    It appears that you are having far too much fun.
    And that is an incredibly good thing.

      WOW! That is a beautiful set up. I am envious. Hope you get to put it on the road very soon. I know you're gonna love it.

          That's some SERIOUS Carbing up!

          Exactly WHAT is that car? All I can tell is it has the old school Defroster, so it is pre 1959 or a pre '63 C/K.

                  That's really cute...and it has to be the only six extant where the battery has been moved to the trunk! BP
                  We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                  Ayn Rand:
                  "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                  G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                    Are we talking only Studebaker sixes, or all makes with sixes?

                    If it includes all makes, I had a '65 Vanden Plas 4 Liter R which had the battery located in the trunk.

                            Looks just like Curt Legasse's setup in Edmonton. I'm not sure if he put his battery in the trunk, though. Nice job.
