    Not !
    But I couldn't pass it up, here is the story

    One day I'm driving down the road I live on a little ways past my house, when I see a Stude bullet-nose :D but nobody was home :(
    So occasionally I would pass by but still nobody home, so yesterday my mom was listening to our local radio station, which has a "general store" & told me that somebody called in that had a 51 Stude but that was all she could make out, as she was in a bad area


    So today, she calls me and say that Curtis (our neighbor) wanted me to come by because he knew I was into old car and such & had something he wanted to show me :) So I go down & there on a trailer was "my" bullet-nose :( I get up to his house & he proceeded to tell me that he had just bought the car yesterday & on the way home had the realization that he couldn't fix it & that he was gonna sell it :eek: So we struck a deal & I took it home :D

    I think Ima paint it satin yellow & pinstripe it, run Stude hubcaps / whitewalls, & might put these 37 ford headlights in (just what I can think of off the top of my head)

    I think the 37 ford headlights would be a great idea. So since its such a good idea you might as well send the passenger side headlight ring to me for my stude! Also I think you should run it without a hood and I'll take your hood!

    Those 37 headlamps are definitely more attractive on that front end.

    Yeah, I think those headlights will look good on it & it should be fairly easy to put them on, cuz they are so close to the same shape of the headlight area

    I like a lot of different things, but Studes are one of my favs
    Here is one of my M-5's

    I you have some stude hub caps lying around you could maybe craft something on to the centersection? Just spitballing here.

    Love the idea with the headlights!

    I wish I did have the caps, but if I decide to run them I'll have to find some
