Have you got that Turning Wheels headed your way yet? It's kinda like getting the Studebaker Bible, all things will be revealed unto you! [^]

Well I am sort of a cold hearted worn out Bible Thumper of sorts. However if i treat Turning Wheels like my bible[V] Welllllllll, lets just say that you would need a shovel to dig the dust of my Bible.

This is kinda weird I feel somewhat convicted, like I'm in church being preached at about reading my Bible and paying tith's[}:)]

I would like to know as well but I cannot find Bob helm in the TW ads. Trying to find original like the one I have pictured. Studebaker international are to thick in S-ring, and the base not stamped very good as I have one. Thanks for your help

Check TW's again. Bob Helms has extensive list of parts listed in the classified ad section.

Bob Helm - page 62 of September Turning Wheels.

I agree that the reproduction hood ornaments do not have the nice detail of the originals.

Bob Helms lists his '64-'66 hood ornaments as "NOS" for $45 each. I would check that it is NOS and not just new unused reproduction before ordering.

If you can't get one from a vendor, I believe that I have one unused one left that I would sell to you for what the vendors are getting for the reproduction pieces ($45 plus S&H). .
