  • June Turning Wheels arrived today

    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 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.

            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.

                      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.

                              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
