:) Many of you knew Larry Swanson as Turning Wheels' first editor, mid-1972 through mid-1991, before he became SDC Publications Director. (Larry christened the magazine Turning Wheels.)

Larry's P.O. Box 1040 Oswego IL return address was on the back of Turning Wheels during that time. He has retained that P.O. Box continuously for SDC correspondence.

Last week [the first week of December 2006], Larry pulled a returned copy of a [u]1990 [!]</u> Turning Wheels out of that Oswego P.O. Box. It had been recently returned by a Massachusetts Post Office as "Undeliverable - Addressee Moved." [:0][:0][:0]

People will do that occasionally...sometimes more frequently than every 16 years, as a matter of fact... ;) :D BP

I wonder where it was hiding for all those years? What would be more frustrating is to be on the receiving end after all these years and to turn to the classisifeds and see your dream car pictured and know it is long gone.

Man, I hope that happens to me. I sent a photo to Fred Fox about 6 years ago and he never received it. It was a picture of George Pence shaking hands with Mr. Baber as he was buying the local Studebaker dealership from him. They were standing in front of a 50 Land Cruiser.

My aunt sent me a picture of my Grandfather last spring, and I haven't received that either. I did receive a picture of a Studebaker that I had bought from a guy in Germany on eBay, but I got it over a year from the time he mailed it.

Back in the 70s when I was doing newspaper ads for A&P Stores, the USPS was always loosing the ads we sent to newspapers. They moved the main post office to a new building and a guy who worked for the contractor who was remodeling the old post office building called me and they had found 5 of our ads in envelopes in the elevator shaft

If it makes you feel any better, Bob, I found that my copy's cover was bent up a bit, too. But, we must mourn our losses and move on. ;)
