  • Pop Quiz: January 2018 Turning Wheels cover

    We haven't had a Pop Quiz with an award for awhile , so here goes:

    On the cover of the January 2018 Turning Wheels is a common household /shop item the likes of which I don't think we've ever had on a Turning Wheels front cover.

    What is it?


    The first person to post the correct answer wins an uncirculated NOS 1964 Studebaker full-line brochure #PD 64 11, postpaid to the winner's home. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Would that be the push broom against the wall to the right?

        BINGO!

        I happened to see that and thought, "When have we had a broom on the cover of Turning Wheels?"

        Is your address still on 170th Street in Milaca, Brent, as in the most recent SDC Roster? BP

              Cool beans, Brent. It will be mailed tomorrow (Wednesday, January 3). BP

                Yep, John, but you can see that Brent's answer was posted first. It is unusual that both your post and his are time-stamped exactly the same: 12:36 AM. Usually, there is a minute or two difference in posts made about the same time.

                Thanks for weighing in. BP

                  As many times as we've seen that piece of real estate on the TW cover I find it hard to believe we've never seen a broom there before.
                  Interesting.

                    Dave, you're right. I went back and looked at some older ones and even the first Pure Stock Muscle Car Drag Race cover (January 1999) has a broom in it! BP

                      Congratulations Brent...How appropriate that the subject showing a picture of a DRAG RACER blasting off the line would come down to "split second reflexes"!!!

                        Thanks John, but it wasn't split second reflexes that nabbed the victory, but rather replying with a much shorter answer!
