      Mr Quinn,time for me to 'fess up! When I bought my Hawk in 2002,I received with it two large boxes of TW back issues-from the current month,back a full 10 years.
      The word 'almanac' was old fashioned to me,think'farmers almanac'and history was my least favorite subject-so I never read a single word of all those TW almanacs! Well,one morning I was out of reading material,picked up an old TW, and it fell open to the almanac. What I began reading was some of the best stuff I'd ever read since grade school!Very informative and entertaining.
      Yes!Over the next few weeks, I went back through every issue and read 99% of your wonderful writing in the 'old fashioned' almanac! Thank You so much for all that great reading material! Now if I could only REMEMBER 10% of it all! Thank You Sir!!

      Oglesby,Il.

            Dick, I read all of your musings as they are fascinating. I remember the picture and the article (just read it again) but never put two and two together until seeing it here again. Sorry for the memory lapse.

                I recall us being responsible for many parts going NLA, like the 2R truck fog lights and hood nameplates.

                    I don't think of myself as particularly selfish, but there is a selfish pleasure in grabbing the last one of something that you know other people will want. On the other hand, some of those "last ones" turned out to be garbage. (That's probably why they were still in the bin.) I got a whole set of C-cab weatherstripping during one of those visits to South Bend. It is now as hard as a rock, and nice soft reproduction weatherstripping is available.

                    "Still have a nos 1960 wiring harness in that stash? They can't find those at Sasco yet.."

                    I dunno about John, but I wasn't buying anything for resale. If I did, I would surely go broke, as I tend to buy high and sell low. So no, I don't have any wiring for a 60 Lark. In those days I was only buying parts for C-cab trucks and 64 Daytonas and Cruisers.

                      I've long regretted not laying in a case or two of those manual roll-up antennas. They were available from Newman & Altman for years at about $15 apiece![V] And GT Hawk grille shells! HOw I wish I'd had the foresight to squirrel a number of those away. Talk about your precious metals![:0][]

                      1957 Transtar 1/2ton
                      1960 Larkvertible V8
                      1958 Provincial wagon
                      1953 Commander coupe
                      1957 President two door

                      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
