Got home today from the Colonial Virginia Meet to find my June TW in the mail. Several wedding pictures, a lengthy Fred Fox article on 1930 Dictators, two follow ups on Dick Quinn's Almanac from last month on the cessation of production. Our own Don Jones (Avantidon) took the cover shot.

I think, at least until September 20, he prefers to be called Clement.:D

I hope all like the photo on the cover. It was put there in hopes many will come early and go with us to "Hollowed Ground" as I like to call it and celebrate in the rededication of the site. This will occur on Monday 09/15/08. There will be many surprises there that day including an appearance by none other than the spirit of John Clement himself. If you can't be there, we will make avaialable a road tour for you to take on your own during the week. There is also an article in TW called "A Pennsylvania Homecoming" read it for a brief early history of the Studebaker family who spent their first 100 years in PA.

Thanks Gary for the recognition for the cover shot. I took that picture a year ago just for this purpose and for my own personal Studebaker records as a part of the Keystone heritage as this is our 40th year.

See you in the future as I write about our past

Since you mentioned the June cover of TW, did anyone else notice the Photoshop "ghost" behind the Avanti on the right???

Please don't wish the summer away as I'm not ready for the International. Just remember when you come down from the North Country please bring the Champ to the show.

Bob. that's fantastic because I only live less than 90 miles away I will have none there for the first time in who knows when. Just too much to do. I would love to bring the R-2, Champ and the GT but won't happen this year unless I have volunteer drivers. As a matter of fact the R-2 will probably be in the AACA Museum as part of the planned Studebaker display.

See you in the future as I write about our past

Got my June issue today 5/27/08.

Don (Radsman),
There are tree shadows playing upon the monument marker. I don't believe there's any photoshop going on. If there's any ghost there, it can be none other than John Clement Studebaker himself.

Don - it's good news to hear that you'll have road tour directions available so that I can finally get to the site(later in the week).

We tried about fifteen years ago when we were on vacation, and got to East Berlin and the Lau's home (they weren't home) and nobody in the area that we talked to could direct us.

Bob, if you got your TW today, I'm REALLY going to be looking for mine tomorrow. I'll keep you posted on the consistency of the postal service.

Roger

I have prepared a map with directions to many Studebaker Family sites in the area. They include the original homestead of Clement 1st, purchased on a Penn Land grant Deed in York County, the David Studebaker house in East Berlin, that was Clement's oldest son and brother to Clement Jr. sfather of John C. it will also take you to the Mummert Cemetary where Clement Jr and his two wives are buried and also to the monument. Here are just two of the sites.

If you come to the monument rededication you may meet John Clement himself. Word has it he will be there both in spirit and in person

Still haven't gotten mine yet, as of yesterday, anyway. I don't get to check the mail until I get home from work, and it doesn't even arrive until around 2-ish. Sorta odd that I haven't gotten my copy, though, since mine usually arrives within a day or two of Guido's-guess that SC and VA are on similar time frames with mail delivery.

Got TWs TODAY(!), BEFORE the beginning of the month. This seldom happens in our corner of the country. Wahoo! (And, looks like a great issue).

Don, thanks. I'll be sure to get that info.

Don, I hope you get some volunteer drivers for at least one of your cars in September. All work and no play, you know.
Still no sign of my snail mail Turning Wheels yet. I was lucky enough to get four copies sent last month, so no complaints.

Dave my sister is the meet co-chair and lives not 5 miles away so may ferry two vehicles down there the week before and then take them directly to Concours field for display only as my hands are full as Concours Chair and PR Director. Time will tell but I guarantee you that John Clement Studebaker and I will be there dressed in 19th blacksmith garb including a full beard.

Looking forward to that week. I live near Amish country, so I see beards and folks attired like that daily where names like Fenstermaker are a norm. At least you guys will be available for Studebaker photo opps. Graven images are not an Amish favorite.

Good luck with the concours; sounds like you folks have already put in a ton of work to make the meet a success. It will be much appreciated by us all. September weather can be iffie, so best of luck with that too.

Dave, John Clement has already pronosticated great weather for the week of 09/14-21/08 for Lancaster County and the Amish are very happy all are coming as it is harvest time and the y always allow the "English" to help as long as cameras are left at home.:)

Just got my TW today. Bent up, dog eared and chewed up by a P.O. machine and looks like it got wet somewhere along the way... and we haven't had rain in a week.. Shame, too, nice cover, Some day I'll have to pop for the covered version.

Dave, sorry to hear about the condition yours arrived in, but at least yours has arrived!!!;) I'll admit I've haven't been as patient as you; I've snuck down to the Studebaker National Museum and peeked through the [u]JUNE Turning Wheels </u> issues that have been for sale to the "[u]GENERAL PUBLIC</u>" for about a week now![:0][:0][:0] Dave, now go figure out how that happens!!!:)

That doesn't sound right..darn, I'll have to send out a scout to the museum to get a good copy. This one seriously looks like it was shoved in someone's pocket for a week. After all these years they amazingly always make it perfectly to my mailbox and I only have had one that came this bad except for the time only the cover came without the inside. Last month made up for it me, but what a great article by Stu Chapman this month. Sorry he didn't seem to be interested in participating on the forum much before Richard Quinn's Almanac account. What a treasure of behind the curtain-type accurate information. I count those comments and rumor dispelling as one of the greatest TW articles I have ever read, not to mention how many of you folks were dead on in your comments. Nice kudos to Bob Palma in there too. Well deserved to all.
