    It's really not difficult to find cars that MOST people would not care for. (BTW, Studebaker built a lot of them ). Here's a few for those that have to be "one up" on someone with something...
    Holy cannoli, Dick Steinkamp - I think you just made my day with those pics!

    This car reminds me of some initial concerns I had about our custom when joining SDC in 2007. We have received almost no criticism even from die hard purists especially when they find out it was customized in the mid 50's by my wife's father and uncle before my wife was born. Many recognize it as a Stude because of the side sheet metal, wheel covers, and adherence to the classic '53 low slung styling. If we had customized it after having a chance to keep it original, it would be more difficult to defend. In fact, before criticizing any Stude custom it might be appropriate to know the why, where, and when of the car's history. As Dick Steinkamp once told me-Don't worry about the critics, just enjoy having a one of a kind car that will give you a chance to educate others about Studebakers. And that has definitely been my experience over and over again.

    (BTW, I can come up with plenty more if this is a good use of band width on the forum)
    Well...doggone it...Guilty as charged...leave it to Steinkamp to add perspective. After his post, the original car looks like a rose in full bloom!

    What's even worse is that a moderator started this one.

    The car is FOR SALE. If you don't like it and it bothers you that much, buy it and change it.
    Which proves that...even moderators, aint't purfeck!

    But...we also must admit...some make it so easy.

    Commanderpink1 -

    Not really, it shows the "cheap" Moon, snap-on wheel covers. Those covers, while possibly made by Moon Equip., they are NOT the actual covers made by Moon Equipment to go racing with. The true race wheel covers were attached by small screws to the edge of the rim.

    As has been said, no comment on the original post or pictures.

    Mike

    P.s. - I like picture #2...Mattel where are you ?

    While it's not my cup-of-tea, I will salute the guy for finishing up the body work. What I find far sadder is all the cars that get cut up to make somebody's dream and the job never gets finished, just sent out to the crusher by the survivors of the estate.

    That Red car up there in number 6 of #14 is a real pig.

    The original posters only comment was that he personally didn't get it. Nothing wrong with that. Why pick on him ?

    He certainly wouldn't feel welcome after this treatment.

    If I saw this at a event the only time I would spend looking at it would be to determine what it started as
    Owner may have some talent but not as a designer.
