    And I still cannot wipe the smile from my face!!!

    Big thanks to my friend and builder Jim Malero for all his help. A few more bugs to work out and I will be able to bring her home.

    I just wanted to share with you guys because this board helps me out with all the great information that is discussed here!

    Studebaker trucks are definately unusual looking...most of the time unusual means ugly, but those Stude trucks are bitchn as hell. Yours is even more bitchn as it sits very well and is the correct color...

    Nice work.
