Cool car....

Yup there was only one Studebaker at the show. It looked like it was in prime condition. You know, by today's standards it probably isn't the fastest of cars but it sure looks fast and exciting even when it's just parked. Maybe cars will look this exciting again some day.

The other end of the Studebaker spectrum........

......like yours, heavily modified, but for a different planet!

Well spotted ; )

It would be interesting to know what percentage of the car is still "Studebaker", the drive train I would guess not at all. Such a tasteful modification. Removing the bumpers really enhances the original design. Great shot, thanks...

Grampie, I am not very knowledgeable about what an original Studebaker looked like or had on the inside but I liked the relatively understated modifications to this car. There were some Model Ts and some VW bugs that looked very little like their originals did.

Nicoalfredo,

Honestly I don't know much about the Studebaker but I can only assume that a lot has changed for the car over 50 years. I suppose most cars don't come with injection rams ;).

BTW- Nice Aston Martin. They always remind me of James Bond.

These 40's (and later) Studebakers were designed by the great American designer Raymond Loewy, inspired by WWII fighter planes I believe; were very advanced for their time, I remember them well from my boyhood. It's interesting to see one "hot-rodded", they were overlooked for a long time in favor of fords and chevies.

Thanks for the info here too. It does kind of look like a plane. The steering wheel was pretty interesting too (sorry no photo) it had that bullet tip shape in the center. Of course, the bullet shape was probably not terribly good to have in a car crash.

Pueo....beautiful old Studebaker "Bullet-Nose"...these cars and their design were way before their time....the styling was fabulous as was your photograph....

thanks jakeobean! Yup, it is too bad that exciting car designs like these aren't being really made on cars today.

Looks like a rocket engineer designed this one… very cool and unique.

yes wifey, to me the circular front is reminiscent of the rotor area of a prop plane
