I read with som envy that even third class postage January TWs have been received by most in the U.S., up to two weeks ago. I still don't have mine.

I'm curious to do the calculations - is it really worth the extra $ to get first class delivery.

Is anyone else still waiting?

So - who got their copy first by (1) 1st class U.S. (2) 3rd class U.S. (3) 1st class Canada (4) 3rd class Canada. (5) other world-wide sites by response. As a follow-up, we can also figure out who gets it last.

In this way, the "Studebaker Retirement Residence"/ Farm/ Shop can be properly located.

Just so you know 55s, I to am waiting for the January TW. I seem to get mine about a week after everyone else gets there's. So hang in there and it will still be new when we get it.[8D]

I haven't gotten mine either :( (4th corner of the US...Washington State)

I think it is pretty gosh durn neat that we all belong to a club that has everyone sitting on the edge of their seat for the next issue of the club magazine. Says a lot about Studebakers, our club in general, and the quality of TW in particular [8D]

What is odd is that it is printed less than 120 miles from me and many of you get it before I do. :( Figure that one out, especially since the mail moves towards Richmond from that area.

Thanks for those covers, Annie. They look almost like the screens from old televisions. Go figure.

Yeah, out here in the boonies, 'lil ol Lewiston, still waiting...:(

As far as hobby magazines go, I think Turning Wheels can't be beat. Even against most other magazines it holds it's own. That's why I encourage all new people on this forum to join. What a wonderful deal! One gets a superlative magazine and membership in (IMHO) the best car club there is!:D

Yeah its the best magazine I get. My mail lady was reading it up the block while she was waiting for one of her elderly customers. She cracks me up. I know they are not supposed too. But she knew how anxious I was for it. The day before I asked her about it. She said she was only supposed to take first class mail out on Wednesday. I told her that Turning Wheels was first class.

Not yet in Kansas City. Used to get them right on the first of the month or a little before. Last 4-5 months it's been closer to the 10th each month before it gets here.

Turning Wheels is supposed to be mailed by the 15th of the preceding month. There are cases where this doesn't happen, such as when the editors were at the international meet. In any case, all of the copies are mailed the same day from Virginia. You are at the mercy of the USPS (plus your country's mail system if you are out of the US) after they are mailed. The 15th was selected to make it possible for most members to have their copy by the first of the cover month. There should be approximately a one month span between issues that you receive. If you want to receive Turning Wheels quicker, so as to get a jump on ads and other information, you need to have first class delivery. First class delivery also includes sending your Turning Wheels in a sealed envelope to prevent damage.

FINALLY - yesterday, the mailgal deposited my TW Jan issue into the mailbox.[8] At least it got here without creased or shredded covers this time.[:0]

I'll echo all the comments about how nice the color coverage was/is.

When I first glanced at the outer rear cover, I was struck by this observance: That photo could pass for a shot of a LARGE Studebaker dealer's stock lot in 1955.:D And LOOK at the rainbow array of colors to choose from!!![:0][:p] Not like today where it's mostly dark metallics sprinkled with the odd red, white or rare yellow example.
Brightwork's making a bit of a comeback of late. Can pastels and 2-tones be far behind?;)

:) Well, Biggs, that would be one helluva BIG Studebaker dealer lot anywhere in the country. I don't ever remember seeing that many cars on the lot at Freeman-Spicer in South Bend in 1961-1963! :D

I'll tell ya' what it does look like, model year excepted: It looks like Studebaker's production storage lot :( in South Bend in July 1963. [V] Cousin George Krem used to roam that lot at will, looking over all the new 1963 Larks, and I do mean ALL the 1963s, that had been built to keep the lines running, with no particular place to be sent except to that storage lot, with hopes of getting some dealer to take them sooner or later. [xx(]

We thought at the time that the "pool" seemed like an awfully large number of cars to have been built against no orders...and the transports were still delivering more! [:0]

As carefree teen-agers (George,19; Me,17), we weren't business savvy enough to see one ultimate result of that folly: Undermining the sales of the heavily-redesigned, "do or die," 1964 "Lark" line.

As important as 1964 model year sales were to be late in the fall of 1963, all these '63s piled up ultimately became one nail in The Automotive Division's coffin. [:0] Here's why: People were attracted to the stylish 1964s, so they came into a Studebaker dealership. [:p] Good; mission of styling and advertising accomplished. :D:D

Then they express an interest in buying one of the 1964s. :D:D:D Good again. Then the dealer says, "Well, looky here; if you'll consider buying one of these left-over 1963s -and we have quite a selection from which to choose;)- we'll make you a deal on a left-over '63 that you can't refuse." [:0][:p]

[8] Oops [8]

End result: Real sales of the verbally-well-received 1964s stall while the dealers clear out all the over-produced 1963s they were given dirt-cheap, with accompanying piles of incentives to get rid of them.

Then Egbert gets sick :( and can no longer serve as Head Cheerleader.

Then people start noticing the good-looking, "all-new," conventionally-engineered Chevelles, Tempests, Cutlasses, and Skylarks...honestly good products in their own right, and with The Blessing of Generous Motors on the title... :(:(

Then President Kennedy gets assassinated around Thanksgiving Day in 1963 :(:(:( and all major commerce in the whole country slows to a crawl, or slower, at a time when ten-day sales reports are more critical than they have ever been for Studebaker's Automotive Division...:(:(:(:(

...and the rest is the history we discuss today. [V][V] BP

Too bad indeed, but it's all a part of the Underdog aura that makes them (Studebakers) all the more interesting.

BTW, where WAS this storage lot? Was it not secured against the likes of you and George, or did you guys have an "in"?[:p]

Too bad indeed, but it's all a part of the Underdog aura that makes them (Studebakers) all the more interesting.

BTW, where WAS this storage lot? Was it not secured against the likes of you and George, or did you guys have an "in"?[:p]

:) I was afraid someone would ask that, Biggs, and for the life of me, I cannot remember.

[}:)] It was an open lot, within sight of (but not very close to) the big final assembly building that became Allied Stamping, and was torn down last year. :( The lot would have been roughly northwest of that huge building/complex. I couldn't pinpoint it today if I had all day to walk around the old campus. [V] George might be able to; when we compare notes, he remembers things I don't, and I remember things he doesn't, about our adventures. They all took place during the summers of 1961, 1962, and 1963.

We probably have about a 75% [i]"Agreement Rate;" that is, we remember equally about 75% of our total adventures. Then, he'll have to refresh me about 25% he recalls that I do not, and I'll refresh him with maybe 25% I recall that he cannot. (Yeah, I know that adds up to 125%, but you know what I mean.)

Believe me, we don't have to make anything up to have interesting stories; we were young, brash, and just foolish enough, knowing no fear, that we did some pretty stupid things. Had our parents known about half of our adventures, we would have never again been allowed to "visit" each other in South Bend! [:0] [i]ha!; [/b]we were too scared to actually sleep) in an old cemetery off the west side of the Proving Grounds so we could sneak in at night and watch the all-night testing being done on cars roaring along the road on the west side of the facility! True.]

No, we didn't have an "in." But we made our own "ins" from time to time...like walking through an open box car to get onto an assembly line from a rail siding next to the plant during lunch, when the guards were paying more attention to their sandwiches than their posts! (Honest![}:)])

Great fun. 'Probably better that we never had cameras, or we might have attracted just enough additional attention to ourselves [:0] when we were caught, that might have resulted in our parents being called, at the least, in that day and age... [xx(] BP

In Chile I receive it around the 15th of the month indicated in the cover (So it seems to be a travel enduring one month)

So I am accostumed to be very patient

Mine is sent in a plain white paper envelope, with a printed caution: do not bend . I suppose it is regular mail, but it is OK.

Follow Up. Finally received my Jan TW yesterday, January 8, 2007. Thank you for the pictures, Anne - but the real thing was much better.

Delivery times do appear to be very different. Question: Is it possible that people near the beginning of the alphabet get theirs first? (Seems to works for a few that said they got it early). Maybe the printing is not able to be done at one time, so that distribution to the mail takes place over several days or weeks.

I see no other possible trend, other than luck. Other SDC members that live within an hour or two from me by car got theirs a full week ahead of me.

Anyway, I am now a happy SDC Jan 2007 TW owner now.

JAN 2007 TW

ARRIVES IN FOLSOM CA

JAN 8TH 4:30PM

via bulk mail aka 2nd class
not torn - in good condition

I deal with mailing a CA monthly 12,000 "bulk mail" newsletter and the USPS delivery
can take up to 3-4 WEEKS with delivery right hear in CA

I also belong to the National Pontiac club (POCI) and the delivery of that newsletter also is very slow and the same goes with Old Cars Weekly ...which can be a month late at times

(Hemmings solved their late delivery problems by changing the cover dates -- so the subscribers really never knows it late -- I.e. Jan is labeled March - plus it gives them more shelf life on the news stands )

the USPS is handling tons of mail and they do a good job but the Bulk mail is slipping away from them and I do not know why -- they try to address the problem but I think it is the change of thier work force - many of the old guys have retired and the new lower USPS pay rate & many of the workers benetifs have been dropped

remember the days we used to get two mail deliveries --AM & PM

I would look for Sat mail delivery to be abandoned in the future

but I can't thank many of the postal workers enough for going above and beyond the call of duty to delivery mis addressed mail - ever try to read some of the hand writing on your mail - it's a wonder we get some of it

Got mine day before yesterday. OH... MY... GOD! Truely a gorgeous issue. all that colour and those shots and the cars and, and, and... Sorry. In case I'm being too subtle, I'd like to say (for the record) I really liked it. Sometimes it's hard to believe that Turning Wheels is just a club newsletter.
Of course, the greedy part of me would have liked to have seen a picture of every car that participated. Just the front cover showed so many beautiful cars from my favourite eras; '53 to '56 and '59 to '63. And those trucks! All those beeee-yoo-tea-full trucks! All I can say is... WOW!
