don't much care for the color, but I do dig Stud fins.

I could never figure out the American fixation on fins, though as a kid I thought they were really cool. Those are pretty tasteful examples.

They did get out of hand at one point, though.

My favorite Studebaker, 1953 Commander. Ahead of its time "...proved the forward-looking genius of Raymond Loewy".



(Never been crazy about the giant, gangster, whitewalls though.)

They have massive engine compartments. Growing up, a neighbor stuffed a Pontiac 455 under the hood of a Golden Hawk, the luxury/performance model.

Here's yer (Golden) Hawk....



Yer pinky is stinky (color-wise, that is).
Go a bit earlier (maybe, and almost pink, but more bearably so).....



And for those of us whom like/lust for red....



And speaking of red Stoodies....., how about a pre-fin Champion (1950)?



Topless (1951)....



Getting newer (1952)....



Still pre-fin, still red, but oh, ooooh, so lustworthy, DM's stablemate (and props to DM for its red interior), and still a Champion (1953).....



Self-explanatory, and if money were no object.....



My dad (R.I.P. 1970) absolutely loved the old noteworthy Studebakers, but mostly drove Pontiacs until the last couple of Lincolns before he died way too young. In honor of my dad, I named my first, bought new, actually spec'ed and ordered from dealer, car, "Champion"; a 1976 Buick Regal.... Must've known somebody would make the moniker come true; a clone of Champion w/ its awards, circa 2014.... My original was t-boned in 1990 by an uninsured motorist in a Jaguar XJ sedan, and didn't survive.




Final exam.....

It looks like an update of the Plymouth XNR show car with a little "Big Daddy" Ed Roth asymmetry thrown in for good measure.
