About 6 months ago I bought an old copy of the Studebaker Comic - "Turning Wheels: the Studebaker Story"

38599

I scanned it, cleaned it up in PhotoShop, and created a pdf of it.

I wasn't sure what to do with it, but now that I'm in charge of the site for the Central Florida Chapter I finally had a place to put it/distribute it.

Please go to the website at www.cfcsdc.com (http://www.cfcsdc.com) and take a look under the "FUN" tab.

Have FUN:D

Thank you SO much! I"ve always wanted to see one of these! You did a really excellent job on the scan, too.

I really appreciate your sharing this with the rest of us!

Now you all know where Larry Swanson came up with the idea of changing the name of The SDC Bulletin to Turning Wheels. It was from that "comic" book. :) BP

Hi Phillip.

Nice work! With your permission, I would love to post this on the main Studebaker Drivers Club web site. Would that be OK with you?

You're welcome!

I've been trying to hone my graphic arts skills, and I'm happy with how it turned out.

Glad you liked it!

Good morning Phillip.

Wonderful job. SDC is fortunate to have someone with your interest and talent contributing to the Club's well-being. With the Florida State Meet coming up and still without a candidate for Regional Manager for Florida, why don't you consider putting your name up. You might like to discuss it with your fellow members at the meet. Let me know your thoughts, either on the Forum or by PM.

Regarding that comic book. Wasn't it part of the 1952 Centennial celebration? Somewhere, in my "stuff," I have one of those publications. I think I bought it at one of the large swap meets at York, Reedsville, or perhaps at a national meet. Anyway, I was unaware of its significance until a fellow member (I forget who) explained that it was part of the huge public information campaign surrounding Studebaker's 1952 centennial year.

Wouldn't surprise me if Richard Quinn has a box of them:)...never opened.;)

Well, you are (almost) correct. I did have a box full!! Sold a lot over the years but still have a few pristine unopened copies. Actually this was not a Centennial item since it was not issued until a few years later in 1954 (as was mentioned above). There has been a fellow at the May South Bend swap meet who was selling reprints. I never checked them for quality because i had several originals.

Thanks, Phillip. It's a truly amazing job of recreating something of great interest I (and probably many others) never knew even existed.
Excellent work.

As a big Superman fan in the 50s and 60s, the artwork style and technique looks like the artist that did the Superman comics of that era.
