  • Hub cap found in Omaha

    Last night I was at a cruise night and a guy came up to me and said he had found a Studebaker hubcap. Than he proceeded to tell me he had found it here on 60th street in central Omaha the week of the National meet here 2 years ago. He would like to see the rightfull owner get it back if possible. I know this is a long shot, but if anybody out there remembers someone mentioning they had lost one that week of the meet, have them get a hold of me and if they can describe it I will be more than happy to send it to them. It has suffered a few dings most likely due to it rolling down the street but they are mostly scratches. Again I know it is a long shot after 2 years and this particular hubcap is available as a reproduction, but I told the guy I would try. Thanks
    Edit: Almost forgot,it is a prewar hubcap.

      No its not a 36. The guy wants it back if the rightful owner does not show.

        How would he know who the rightful owner is? If he did they'd already have it back.

          John- to me this indicates that the rightful owner DOESN'T have it back- but they're still the righful owner... so I don't get your question...?

            Maybe Art and Richard can make mention of it in Turning Wheels and Antique Studebaker Review to get the word out further.

              We will be departing here today to attend the North Central zone meet but will check back in here on Monday to see if the owner has surfaced.

                Bob, I think what I meant was that anyone could claim it, the guy who found it is surely not going to go to their house and confirm that it was definitely from their car.
