i think its ugly, BUT i also think those studebakers in general are ugly.

that being said, the fox rooflone actually pulls it off pretty good, and looks like some actual work may have went into it

needs different wheels though!!!

That is the ugliest "thing" I've ever seen. They should arrest whoever did that. That is sacrilegious, both to the Cougar and the Studebaker.

Now this is a cool Studebaker Street Rod.

I... I think that's way, way better than an EasyRod. In fact, I think that's got potential.

I don't like the deck lid and where all of those lines converge below the rear window, but the top pic, and the bottom pic looking forward from the C-pillar, I think it's pretty cool.

I think it flows better than the EasyRod kit, and doesn't look cheaply done either. But would I buy it or support it? F-that!
