  • Turning Wheels 2R-Series Trucks

    I don't know if anyone could possibly help.

    I've started to leaf through my back issues of Turning Wheels in the belief there were 2R-Series feature articles spread across a number of issues of the trucks, pickup, etc.

    Can anyone save me leafing through each month and point me to issues (so long as I'm correct) in which they featured.

    The Turning Wheels Index shows a series of articles by Fred K. Fox in June, August, October and December 1985; April, June 1986; December 1987; October 1988; and others by Richard Quinn June 1988; and by Clell Ballard May 1989.

      Thanks for that Bill, and now I see I don't have issues that go back as far as that.

      No worries, I still looking for a relevant book as a Christmas present to myself!

        don't they print back-issues?

          They don't reprint them, but there are plenty of extras around. Also, I believe that they are available on a disc.

          EDIT: Corrected by another Gary. They are on a thumb drive, not a disc.

            One solution is to buy the Turning Wheels "digital library" with all the 520 back issues to 1972 plus the earlier club publications back to 1963. It comes on a "thumb drive" for $99, including the detailed index. See the SDC web page for details. It's necessary to have an SDC membership number to buy the collection, but $31/year gets you one.

              If you want paper copies, my brother sells them.

                Every time I've had my eye on a certain Studebaker, I'd dig out one of Fred Fox's issue on that particular model before or after I bought it. It was like reading a factory sales book; every detail thoroughly explained!

                  June '85 featured 2R trucks. Copies are getting harder to find but I have one for sale if you need it.
