    I am not a vendor in the real sense but I have had a table on 2 occasions with a few things for sale and with lots of free stuff. A good place to bring a stack of Turning Wheels for other enthusiasts who might be wanting/needing some back issues (especially for free). Just a thought.

    Thank you all for the ideas! And yeah, I kind of figured the current state of affairs might add a few hurdles to clear... the rules and regs seem to differ from day to day and place to place, so it probably pays to make a few calls ahead of time...

    If you have a veterans Admin hospital in your area they might be interested. I took two BIG boxes of Road Runner (a motorcycle touring magazine). Lots of Veterans were gear heads and appreciate something different to read.

    I imagine a high school or community college that still has an automotive program might be receptive...though I'd imagine much of their content is diagnostics for "remove and replace."

    Back in the days of the York Swap Meet, there were a couple of vendors that sold them. I have boxes of them along with about 50 years worth of AACA magazines.

    I too have lots of back issues of Turning Wheels, I spent a lot of time recently making sure I had a complete set and then sorted out what was left. When looking for what to do with the many extras I have I first contacted a couple of rest homes and ran into a problem in that they do not presently take donated magazines due to the pandemic. I don't want money for these they are out there for others who may have missing issues. If anybody has missing issues I would be glad for them to have them all I want is postage for mailing them. I also would be willing to trade if anybody has the earlier issues I do not have.

    I love my paper magazines and will keep them until whenever, but if one is trying to collect a whole set, one would probably want a full index to go with them. The new thumb drive is a quicker way to go and maybe less expensive in the long run. It has all TW and Pres. Newsletter before that, plus the full index. Order from Cornerstone Reg. or SDC store (members area).

    Everyone needs an oil change. Put some copies in the waiting room where everyone is waiting. Muffler shops, tires stores, A/C service centers are also to be considered.

    Noticed lately in all the medical, dental, et.al. waiting rooms, not a magazine to be seen.
    Another casualty of a pandemic.

    I have heard of people making them available to people at car shows. If a person shows interest in your Studebaker at a show, they may enjoy a copy of Turning Wheels.

    I have them from day one and at times I came across extras in cars that came my way or from owners garage at the time of buying. I did get to sell lots to a new member years ago and now he has his own set, mine will just stay in the house untill my time comes then it is not my problem.

    I dropped off some at the local library magazine exchange. Others went to a thrift store. It made a few dollars and maybe introduced a few new hobbyists

    I took a lot of mine to several retirement homes in the area, VA and the like. May need to wait post Covid though for now.

    I put a few of them on the immense magazine table at the Smog Check station, ironically.

    The guys at the shop like them and the customers get a glimpse of one way to avoid that waiting room while their Brand X gets a prostate exam on the treadmill.
