  1. Well, myself and three other lads stripped down a bit of British Leyland's finest for rebuilding. It was done in the sketchiest manner possible, but details galore! This 1978 MGB is a part of the creative shop here at Berry College. My boss bought it as part of a two-for-one package from a guy in Arkansas. It was a classic case of his wife was nagging him to get rid of it, so he got both for the princely sum of $200. It's filled with fiberglass, pop-rivets, and hornets, so you know it's quality! The "good" one was somewhat restored to stock while this one is going to be electrically driv
  2. Howdy everyone! Out of boredom, and because one of my areas of interest is vexillology, I decided to make a Studebaker flag. I put a good deal of effort into its design, with every detail having meaning, so here's the full list behind it. - Red, white, and blue colors = the American nationality of the Studebaker Corp. and most of its admirers. - Border = the edges of the Earth, the foreign lands where Studebaker has had an impact. - Saltire = Studebaker's far-reaching influence. - Diamond = reference to baseball, which both helped to build up America and was hugely supported by the St
  3. The Renault Caravelle? You mean that very cute French roadster that the Tesla Model 3 stole its front clip from? Fantastic stuff! I believe it was sold as the "Floride" in its home market.
  4. Excellent choice with the SM. A beautiful blending of Citroen and Maserati that turned out to be quite good. Too bad that it's still not as appreciated as the earlier DS. Also, I quite like the pre-war Peugeot 202. Streamlining at its best!
  5. Most Facel-Vegas, including the Excellence, were built in Paris using Chrysler 331 cu. (5.4 L) V8s. While other Facels tend to command prices around $400,000, the Excellence will only cost you about half that at the most because it's a four-door sedan. Not like I care though. However, a small handful (under 50 units) are in the States.
  6. Interesting stuff, to be sure, but I doubt it will end well for Tesla. It's position was already fairly weakened before this whole Covid thing started on account of concerns about build quality and problems with the Gigaplant. Keep in mind that I don't hate Tesla. I'd never own one of their vehicles, but I don't actively hate them.
  7. Well, with all of this grim news out an about, I figured that we could use a light-hearted question to just shoot the breeze. Answer honestly and openly, if you please. For me, it would have to be a Facel-Vega Excellence. My dad told me stories about how these Parisian sculptures used to dot the area around his parent's house in Palm Beach when he was a child and I was captivated more effectively than one of Anouk Aimee's performances. I would love to drive one if only to get it out of my system.
  8. Well thank you kindly! Do tell about that Studebaker. What trim level is it (Champion, Commander, President)? Is it in good shape? Do you have photographs? Inquiring minds want to know!
  9. No witty caption for this one. Just take it in.
  10. Well, this is an article from "TheThings". It is normally a tabloid-esque site like so many others, talking about celebrities and reality TV like we care about it, but it occasionally does good. It is titled "15 Classiest Car Interiors from the 1960s." I am pleased to report that both the Avanti and the GT Hawk made it at 9th and 6th place respectively. Here's the link: https://www.thethings.com/classiest-car-interiors-from-the-60s/?fbclid=IwAR1LhVDWzGj-YW-9CzbHXNlvhFsbKNkZ1mBMInbLB5Y6sXTJbde7ThvjIEY
  11. To quote a certain song used in a very popular film that's from the same year as Daisy-Mae here: "Underneath the mango tree...me honey and me..." In any case, I've had about as good of a time as can be expected given the circumstances. A car show would be nice, but that's gone to pot. How're ya'll doing? Good? Bad? Milquetoast?
  12. I've been helping my mom's business out as a courier using my own car, and I went ahead and gave a homeless man some badly needed PPE on Clematis Street. It felt great to help in my own small way. Even if you don't have a Studebaker, you can join in too by just doing small things that would improve other people's lives in a big way. We need it now more than ever.
  13. I have been wondering about these beauties that are even further back beyond my time than Daisy-Mae is. After researching a few models, I came to the distinct and singular conclusion of...wowzers! If I thought Daisy was from another planet, these things might as well be from another universe from my perspective. It's just wonderful. Until I looked at the prices... Being in college doesn't exactly give me a lot of finances, but it does give me a lot of time. So, in your view, which is the best pre-war Stude sedan that I should focus on? I'm completely open at this point. Here's a

  15. Thank you kindly for the thoughtful comment! I always thought that Studebakers in general are grossly underappreciated, as I believe it to be the most important automaker in American history. However, when you say that the forum is pre-war oriented, what should I do about it? Just stop posting GT Hawk content?
