1931 Studebaker Model 54 4 door sedan
Here is one more of the five Toyo Tires vehicles appearing at SEMA 2008. Words from Toyo:
Old school street rodders can feast their eyes on a one-off 1931 Studebaker Model 54 4-door sedan, a creation of Toyo event manager, Adrian Puente. Puente's car was built by Choppin' Block Custom Fab of Fresno, California, and rides on Toyo Proxes® 4 tires, 235/40ZR18 in the front and 275/40ZR20 in the rear. The wild "Stude" has a chopped roof, entirely new frame, custom fabricated hood to cover a Zoops outfitted Chevy 350 with three deuces (two-barrel carburetors) and a retro-style fabricated sheet metal interior. A custom air bag suspension provides the "slammed" look while the car rides on the Proxes 4 tires and Centerline Smoothie wheels. The Proxes 4 is a popular all-season, ultra high performance tire for passenger cars, which comes in a broad range of sizes from 15 to 28 inches in diameter.
