Ain't enough condiments in the world to fix that.
Might not have happened if he'd been wearing a condiment to start with.
Well, there ya go. No good ever came from bumping gators.

A somewhat awkward advance towards full-width bodywork, 1930 Stutz rebodied in 1938 by Adolph Schneider of New York:
Oooof ! . . . Well that was rather unfortunate, wasn't it. And somewhere underneath all that there's a Stutz.
Looks like it was designed by a committee that started at the front and by the time they got to the taillights they discovered that they'd run out of money and/or ideas.
Looks like it was designed for a Fire or Police Chief by someone who designs trucks and emergency equipment! Better in red or black n white?
This is where Checker got their idea for taillights.
The taillights are uncharacteristically prominent for the era. Designers were either frank or discreet about taillights at the time; as a rule they didn't celebrate taillights.
Maybe he was tired of having to have the rear end repaired every week?
Perhaps a more forthright embrace of the full-width idea would have been better:
though the high tail makes it look rather pickup-like. With a lower tail and a gentler curve to the rear deck:
Still satisfyingly weird, but visually a lot more comfortable.
I'm thinking that the original 1930 version probably looked much better.
Needs a big wing in the back to help celebrate those tail lights.

Needs to go back to R&D.
Yeah, and those fugly front wheels..... Make me wonna puke!....
