    Outstanding

    Not a Ranchero or El Camino (or even a Cadillac flower car), in the world that wouldn't pull over and stop to tip their caps to this drop dead gorgeous machine! Great Job!

    Unfamiliar with Studebaker Commanders? Even radically custom, it preserves every styling cue from the automobile, yet at same time completely unique. Small block Chevy power a common go-to, but I'd have opted for something special. Beautiful concept and project none the less.

    Yes — completely unique. Even did away with the windshield center divider, on that smoothly curved windshield. And to completely create a bed and tailgate — amazing. Of course, the fact that the top of the bed is curved against the back of the cab, means it wasn't particularly meant for securing heavy loads.
