Sorry, but Ford lost me for the Thunderbird after 1957. I'll take the Studebaker, even though that durable design goes back to 1953.

The studebaker in 53 was gorgeous and ahead of its time; the front end not so much in 56-58.  The 58 Tbird was very sharp for its time in 58. I vote the Tbird.

No-Contest for me!  The THUNDERBIRD gets my vote!  Not being a fan of the little two-seaters from '55 to '57, seeing the '58 was refreshing.  I've always felt it was one of the best looking cars for that year!

Based partly on color, but mostly on the chunky contours of the T-Bird, the Studebaker is a sleeker design and gets my vote.

Between these two it's close but I pick Studebaker; very beautiful color combo and trim.  Styling is much sleeker looking as well.

Back in the day, I'm guessing I would have picked the T-Bird since it was a newly released design. Today, it's the Studebaker without a doubt!

I am a big fan of the '57/58 Studebaker, my pick today.
