    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    "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.

    Sure not my cup of tea. Why mess up a good original car? It would have been better to take a bland car and make it look better.

      To each his own I can't say that I don't like it, crazy to try and imagine the man hours in it.

      Hard really to tell there's a Studebaker under there but I'd drive it!

          I like the carriage and interior; if only they hadn't screwed up that iconic body shell!

            Someone put a ton of work into it with ( to me ) disappointing results. Admittedly, I could not approach this level of craftsmanship so I should probably just shut up.

                If I won a "HUGE" lottery, I would buy it, rename it "Nightmare", and then put it out of it's misery.

                      He should have picked on a Chevy or Ford or Chrysler. Instead, he alters one of the most iconic front ends in automotive history!

                        He certainly captured the look of the futile attempts that were made in the past to improve the car. No doubt it will get plenty of attention.

                          I like the breather! Ad says dual exhaust. Looks like Quads to me.
