mr. raymay,please post some pics of youre 1956 el camino/nomad!
Search for thread originally posted in 2009 by Moparron. "pics of my friends 56 ElCamino". It was still there the last time I checked.
Not sure if I ever posted a build on the kingcab. I will put a quick one together.
Looks like a fun cruiser! Do you have any more pics of the cab conversion you could post? I would love to see more details!!
Better be careful the self-appointed hamb police might be upset!! Will building a body from scratch look traditional enough for this site? should my steel wheels be painted a special shade of red? If I can't find a 50's motor, should I push it? - This really is a truck, just haven't made the bed yet. Back in the day they made everything theirself. Noone had money! model A's and dueses were the most popular. Anything else was your mothers car. So you guys who think you build cars by buffing the hood, changing the plug wires and having the shop down the street do everything else need to get over yourselfs! Ok - I'm better now.
good thing you came along...you can set us all straight...^^^^
Yeah, no shit. What was I thinking?
Man, it's amazing how folks who just don't "get it", will continue to drag shit out once they have been called out. If you wear your vagina on your sleeve, you're bound to get sand in it.
Here are a few I like(sorry if they have already been posted).
I must have been not paying attention for the last 15 years, I'm glad Raven29 joined when he did, without simps like him I'd be lost....
Here's an old Stude that I'm looking at buying. 13K original miles.
that the on you are selling the wagon for, matt?
You got it..
What year is it,, (so I know how to label the photo when i save it,,)
'53, model 2R11.
I've been through all 144 pages so far and this is a really wonderful thread. I'm posting pictures of my 40 despite some of the drama over what a traditional hot rod is. My 40 is on an 86 Ranger frame with a Chevy 4.3, 700 R4 and a Ford rear. The body is a combination of original, reproduction steel and 'glass parts. I've been working on it for 14 years and like everyone elses truck, it represents what I want my hot rod to be. Thanks for looking!
Damn nice looking truck.. Cool Even,,,
That fire truck is cool. I bet it would look good sitting next to my camper at a car show. Now that would be something, two Studebaker survivors sitting pretty. Hope you get it as I know you'll take good care of it.
Hey, Dude. I love your Stude!!! There are not enough of them out on the road.
Bet that hurts! Did you use traditional sand?
