Studamino

STUDEBAKER (STUDMAINO)

I like it. I'd have to add some Studebaker bumpers....and get rid of that ridiculous Chebby v8....oh and....I'd have to swap in a Mercedes 617 turbodiesel!

Looks like a disaster to me. Such a loud color can only work on something with excellent body lines or a municipal vehicle, and this is a weird mix. I would have tried something different for the rear fenders and tail lights. This thing definitely needed round chrome tail lights like the early ranchero, something liked that.

Mix of 80s and 50s, no sir

You just have a soft spot for anything studabaker related.

So when do you pick this up?

Oh no, now you've ruined it for me. Much too garish for my delicate palate.

I'll bet that for not much more money than what was invested into that poor El Camino, the owner could have had a nice clean '71 Ranchero which would have been a better car from virtually any perspective:

That 62 falcon ranchero is really sweet....second choice styling wise might be the 57 ranchero. fords of that era were very stylish!
