oh no Me gotta go now Aye-yi-yi-yi

Same email received here. Can't say I think too much of this use of the SDC roster as a marketing tool. That's not what I signed up for, and I'm disappointed. Don't care what ol' Loooeee's got to sell; I ain't buyin'.

Well , I went to the website .
Tactics aside , the link is there , so I wanted to see what they have .

Got the email, went to the web site looking for a windshield wiper motor p/n 1339396. The part was listed on louie's website as item 311 so I inquired. Waiting for a response. Website says he's in South Bend but not sure what country!!! No specific info has been shared with Louie, so we'll see what happens.

BTW does anybody have an NOS or good rebuilt 1339396 I could buy and get at the IM?

Can we assume then that it is/was a legit website and not a spam thing? I wont weigh in on the other issue. Thanks, Steve

S'funny,

The Studebaker world isn't that big yet the guy that owns this site is using GoDaddy.com to remain invisible. Why do that unless you have something to hide? Have there been any significant thefts of Studebaker parts - particularly truck parts lately?

The Editor of Turning Wheels should know who/what they are - unless they used a proxy to place the ad in TW too.

Might be an internet scam, might be a fence moving parts, might be a legitimate dude trying to get rid of his collection that doesn't want to become the subject of a long drawn-out "Oh, what a shame" thread on this site.

They list parts by category , and have pics of them.
The contact is the same as the address from which the emails came to us.
They say that they are near South Bend .
That's all I know.

web site looks legit, pictures are too small and in many cases he doesn't know what he has. Looks like mostly used parts. Oh and no prices???

There are no prices listed and there appears to doubt as to what the parts are. Many parts have could be from 259 or maybe a 289 next to them.

TX Rebel
06-24-2012, 01:53 PM
He evidently came across a decent horde of parts & is ambitious enough to get them on line & let his target audience know what he has. No prob there. I also got his email this morning. He probably is not an experienced Stude parts vendor, but I laud him for making the parts he has available. I would merely suggest that he put prices on his listings. I wish I had the time & talent to get some of my inventory listed on my site, which is BTW, also on godaddy. Mainly, I have cars listed on my nascent site, which is www.studebakersite.com Coming soon: a solid '51 Champion ragtop project car.

JRoberts
06-24-2012, 04:42 PM
I got the email too and went to the site. My opinion of it is much the same as most folks have already said. I would like to know how he got our email addresses. I thought that maybe the SDC was a source, but StudeDave '57 pretty much quashed that since his email is not in the SDC roster.

I looked at the pickup he has for sale with the bed being listed separately and thought that was a little curious.

06-24-2012, 04:57 PM
It is a bit of a puzzle as to the origins of his mailing list. Perhaps it's time to start using my "junk" email account for all registrations, organizations, etc. Has anyone seen any other marketing from these folks? Bought anything? There are a lot of things I'll jump right in to. I don't feel like being the test pilot on this one.

Site looks legit, although some of those photos I think I have seen on e-bay. Could be borrowing the pix or he may sell there too.

06-24-2012, 05:35 PM
has anyone checked TW to see if he actually has an ad, or is it supposed to be in the next issue? will be checking my latest TW...

immediately deleted the e-mail to "phishing scam".

sorry if i offend anyone, but stuff like this has to be taken as "guilty until proven innocent". :ohmy:

*******************************************************************************

Who is Bill Jackamiet? He is a member of the Greater Virginia Chapter-SDC and has one of the oldest, longest running Studebaker oriented sites on the Internet. A great guy who is low key, but is a Studebaker fanatic. I have subscribed to his website for the past 12 years and I did not receive an e-mail from Mr. Looie. So I don't believe someone has high-jacked (not intended to be a pun) Bill's list.

If you don't know Bill Jackameit and his long years of promoting Studebaker, you're missing something. I'll not post his email address, but simply Google "Bill Jackameit's Studebaker Page". You'll love it!

Yes, he has an ad in June 2012 Turning Wheels. First one on page 58. I thought it was nice to see a "new" source to look for some Stude parts. I did not get the e-mail. Maybe that's why I'm calm about it.

A guy made a website and took the time to inventory, photograph, and advertise a bunch of parts for sale. That's a big undertaking. He somehow got a list of email contacts (mine included) to spread the word, after putting an ad in TW. Maybe one of the other vendors, or an SDCer gave him a list of Studebaker owners' email addresses. I don't know, but it's not like an email address is something secretive.

Either email the poor guy to potentially buy his parts, or don't. This thread and "you're a terrible person if you own cars that are rusting in a field" are the two hot topics right now. I don't get you guys.

I make my living from car guys, and a lot of those are Studebaker owners. The only Studebaker I own is rusting away in a yard, and it isn't for sale. I'm a horrible person.

Agreed. What's the big deal?

So, if I have this right- if you 'hoard' Studebaker stuff, you're a bad person. If you make a massive effort to sell your Studebaker stuff, you're a bad person. So that means if anyone has any hands-on involvement with Studebakers, they're a bad person. Right?

Hopefully 'Louie' can get his parts into the hands of people who need them. If not, not. But if he sees this thread and the 'hoarder' thread, he may decide to just scrap everything he has, lest he burn in eternal damnation for doing marketing.

For the record, I got the e-mail; read it; looked at the website; bookmarked it; went on to the next thing. I had no idea he was causing people to get the vapors...

Matt, all I did was ask......"Who is Studebaker Louie?" Since his email was out of the "blue" and unsolicited!

Matt is correct. But these days, most (and myself admittedly), are skeptical of unsolicited mail of any kind, be it printed advertising left in your mailbox at your house, or electronically on your computer. Walls automatically go up, and it not 'wrong' in any way to ask others if they've had dealings with an individual, either bad or good.

I received his email also. Just today, I received my July 2012 TW's. He DOES have an ad on page 54, second column, 3rd ad down. IF he is not legit, he went to an awful lot of trouble creating his web site and placing his ad. I would say he is legit but he could have done a better job introducing himself to the Studebaker world. stupak

I got one as well. Only sites that have my e-mail are--SDC ,AOAI, Studebaker Museum and SI, so it seems by default they came from SDC or the museum. He may have joined and spent hours going through the rosters-but I doubt it. Our e-mail addresses have most likely been given or sold to him by someone. I'll just spam it for the moment and wait to see if any more info shows

Good grief. . . . .

Lot of nighties in a knot over getting an email from someone about parts for our favorite marque. Leaping Lizards Batman! Too many worries about how your email address was obtained and claimed personal offenses; so sue'em. Email addresses are the electronic postal delivery system of the world. If you are in fear that someone contacted you on your email terminate your email account, block everything, take 2 aspirin and check your blood pressure in the morning. This is too funny. Cue theme from the Twilight Zone. . . . .

Jim B PEI
06-25-2012, 07:52 PM
I think I'm with Henry Votel on this.

If he had appeared as a Newbie on the Forum offering parts for sale, I suspect some people might have had their suspicions too.

If you don't want to receive email, or junk texts, do what a relative of mine does--eschew a computer and/or cellphone completely.

I agree to this. If he knows about TW and placing an ad there, he must know about the forum, you'd think he'd come here as part of his marketing plan.

Maybe, he lurks here and decided to avoid the rectal exam he is getting anyway:) Or maybe, he knew his technique would cause a lot of publicity, at least here among the delicates and tin foil hatters. Genius!

Either way, I just don't see the crime.

Hey Louie- if you're looking in, how about letting me in on your e-mail culling technique? I could use it in my business. My e-mail is....... wait, you already know it. Well played, sir!

Yep, got one too. I rarely comment on these type of topics, but this incident bugs me a bit. I consider my e-mail address exactly the same as my telephone number. I do not appreciate people calling me on the phone (or e-mail) that I don't know, trying to sell me something I may or may not want, if I didn't initially inquire about it first.

I have been surprised chatting with various Studebaker owners in the area how many are members of the club and avid TW readers who haven't found this forum yet. That being said, I guess I'm not cool enough to make it onto Louie's mailing list, as I never got an email from him. Oh well, the good news is that a Nigerian prince just informed me that if I help him move a trunkbox overseas, I'll become insanely wealthy, so that's good news. :D

You know someone could have a lot of fun with the members of this forum if they registered the Studebaker Louie user name and started posting.........
Some of you would get your knickers tied in such a knot you wouldn't be able to poop for a week.

So the guy sent you a email letting you know about his web site and the fact that he has studebaker parts for sale. Let's tar and feather him. Then you can sit back and wonder why you can't get new people to join the club or the forum.
I can remember before the days of the internet when I would have killed to find someone that had all those parts. And he is willing to sell them, he's not horrding them saying some day I'm going to use them myself.

Maybe some of us don't want to get spam? Perhaps we don't want offers from the widow of a Nigerian president, Canadian drugs, or how to cheat on your spouse via Fu#$book.

Sorry, I don't see anything wrong in wanting to keep trash, scams and cons away from MY computer.

I don't like unsolicited emails any more than I like unsolicited mail or unsolicited phone calls. I understand its a fact of life in the modern world, but I don't want to enable or encourage spammers.

Clark (Forum moderator)
What's your take on this? Could Studebaker Louie get email addresses through the Forum somehow? If so, his message could be just the tip of the "Spamberg", so to speak.

You can't buy a convertible and complain when your hair gets messed up.

Ultimately, spam (unsolicited email, which is what this amounts to, even if it is potentially "useful") is a cost associated with the benefit of the technology. Just like crash fatalities is a cost of driving. Just like fliers in the mail is a cost of having a postal system. It's part of the picture, and you can never truly extract it. Even if you're the most diligent person, using the stealthiest of web browsing, you're still bound to get a few odd emails eventually.

I think Louie is catching a lot of flak because for the most part, there's usually not a place to vent frustrations over spam. Because it's "Studebaker spam", and we're part of a Studebaker forum, this gives us a vent for frustration, and then it's like a crack in a dam. Years of anger over Viagra spam and Nigerian scam mail finally pops, channeled at the one source we can put a name on.

same, same and same. And how I see it.
The only question is where did the list come from?

I'm not knockin' the guy- I plan to inquire about some prices on some stuff that I 'think' I need,
but can't be sure of until I get home and have access to my parts books, and 'want' lists that are there... ;)

Your point?
(Other than ridiculing those who complain?)

At least I've shopped at WalMart, I know it's real and not some scam (I know many think WalMart is the antiChrist...come on, it's just a store).

Junk mail is fine, I pass the trash can on the way back from the mailbox.
But gettting unrequested (occasionally obscene) offers on a computer that I paid good money for is something different. To say nothing of possible viruses and other illegal add-ons.

I'm happy some of you think spam is good fun.
I'd hardly a luddite, and realize when you have a mailbox, telephone or computer, you get unwanted attention.

But that doesn't mean I have to encourage it.

FYI. I received his email. But it came into my forr62 mailbox, not the Jerry Forrester mailbox I use foe SDC and forums.
I was glad to get his email because we need all the Stude parts suppliers we can get.

Jerry, there is a huge difference between posting something on a forum where we all have Studebakers and might be interested in your products or services, and getting an email to a fairly private address.

Think of an email like a phone call, would you want any old club member calling you at home to let you know he has some parts?
It would be different if I had contracted him and "opted in" of future emails letting me know of deals and the like.

I'm not against any Stude vendor...(Lord knows I've given enough of them enough money :) ) but there are better ways to let us know of their services.

I wonder what the reaction would have been if Louie had snail mailed everyone his notification.
Nothing keeps people from sending you stuff through the post office. Same way for email, it's just a non issue if you ask me.

Just like fliers in the mail is a cost of having a postal system. It's part of the picture, and you can never truly extract it.
Just my .02

you can't compare flyers from newspaper or mail to this. Everyone on my street got the flyers/junk mail. Those are target to zip codes, or geographical areas. My neighbors did not receive this studebaker email.

This was obviously a list he paid for or found, and sent unsolicited ads to a specific group of people. If he used a computer program to send this to every known email address in the world (like the Vi@gra emails & Rolex Replica email I get every darn day), I'd be fine with it. I didn't get it in my "junk" email I use when I sign up for contests, or sweepstakes, etc. so it's not fine.

But, I for one, want to make sure our member list isn't for sale to advertisers. could you imagine if all the TW advertisers used our roster to send out ads? Your inbox would be full of stude spam.


well said JBoyle: I'm not against any Stude vendor...(Lord knows I've given enough of them enough money ) but there are better ways to let us know of their services.

Oh man,a lynch mob! How exciting!

But, before I start working on my noose tying, there is another rhetorical question I wanted to throw out there. In our world of moderately to severely aged Studebaker vendors, is it possible that this guy bought the stock of a former vendor, and along with that stock came a contacts list, which he may have innocently and a little naively assumed that he could use, since they were contacts for the old vendor? Is it possible that Louie might have sincerely meant no harm?

Gohdes, while your physical neighbors didn't get it, your virtual neighbors in Stude land did, so the analogy still sorta holds, though I get what you're saying.

Lastly, this guy has an email listed plain as day on his site. Has anyone thought to approach him all friendly like and simply ask how he got their address? Sometimes the direct approach is a lot more effective than whining for days on end.

Just some thoughts.

I don't think the big question here should be, "Who is Louie?" but how did Louie get our emails. This part of this discussion is what bothers me most. I don't know Louie and am not familiar with his business and like other vendors that I don't know and am not familiar with, I won't use him until I do. I don't like spam anymore than anybody else here and that is what Louie's approach was, thus the initial question. I really do not think that other vendors that have made comments on this thread use that approach and that is something of which I am very glad. These folks are well respected and provide honest services to those who use them. Simply put, we know them Louie too may be just as honest and respected as these folks, but we simply do not know who he is. We do know that he sent a bunch of us spam. So.....who is Louie and how did he get our email addresses?

I didn't get the email. Odd, seems that neither myself or anybody else that I've talked to around here knows who Louie is or even heard of him. I do think it would have been a good idea to introduce himself here before sending emails. I can't say if he is a scam or not, I would like to think that he is legit and has parts for sale. If he is real, great, more power to him; and good for him to keep some extra parts available. Remember though, every business has to start somewhere.

Well writing him and inviting him to come here and clear up any misunderstanding or confusion only gets an "auto reply."


Thank you for visiting our web site.

This guy has been around for a while, how long I don't know. I was searching for parts over the past few years and saw his stuff last year some time. He does not know Studebaker parts very well as he does not know if an engine is a 259 or 289 even when he has the engine number. Not saying he is legit or not just saying he has been selling the same stuff for a while. Also looks like it is exactly the same stuff. Could just be a guy who happened on a shed of Studebaker parts and wants to put them in circulation. I'm surprised no one else has seen this stuff before.

They get those from looking at PORN, then they complain about finding out about a new source for some old Studebaker parts. Oh the hypocrisy!

I'm pulling for Louie as well, and got his email on a account I don't use for Studebaker stuff. Here's a clue,... If you don't unsolicited email drop them in your junk email box, don't read them and move on. It's like changing the channel on the TV if you don't like sexual innuendos of humor that prevails on American television. Personally, I like American television.

His site has been on the net for at least a year. I have looked at it often and have contacted him thru e-mail a couple of times. He said that he was not selling parts in the winter (snowed in) but was going to start again in the spring. I may have even spoke to him on the phone once. His prices were good and he seamed to be on the level but selling his stuff part time. Thats all I know.

I regularly get calls from people, usually not SDC members, trying to sell me Studebakers or Studebaker parts. Over the past year or so I have just directed them to this Forum and said that they should post what they have for sale (give everyone a chance). Only a couple have done this. I know that they are on the Internet because usually they say that is how they got my telephone number. The most recent was a couple of days ago I got a call from a guy selling a supercharger from a 1957 Golden Hawk. I haven't seen him list it here. He semed surprised when I didn't even want to take down his telephone number.

Well there's no way to order any of the parts if you wanted to. The only contact is the once that sends out the automated response I quoted above. Not that I would likely buy from someone with no phone and an email that they don't respond to.

Wow.....

The only thing missing from this thread is someone claiming it is a government conspiracy. I did not get his e-mail (and I am known to troll the Internet from time to time). Might be because I don't know the right people, don't belong to the right group or simply be that I have hundreds of parts I can't sell and thus am not a good potential customer.

So the guy got your e-mail and sent a message that he had parts.... sounds like a good approach to target your buying audience. If you don't want e-mails, don't have an e-mail account. I wonder if folks felt similarly violated when the first Sears & Roebuck or J.C. Penney catalog appeared in their mailbox?

Over on the chain saw forum they have taught me about pie (and stuff). Ever tried apple and bacon pie? If not, e-mail me for the recipe and have Deb bake you one.
