  • Turning Wheels

    I received my December TW today and was appalled to discover that only 24 of the 66 pages were content, the rest advertising.

    Is this going to continue or an abberation?

    If it's the way of the future, then I don't want the mag anymore and will rejoin the club next year without it. It's what I'd expect in a Vogue type magazine not a car magazine.

    This may sound rough, but I want to learn about Studebakers, not advertising.

    John,

    I suspect that it is advertisers trying to bring in a buck for Christmas.

        compared to some "club magazine/newsletter" things I've seen, I'm willing to put up with some ads to continue to get the super-high-quality publication we get. I inherited back issues of TW from the 70's to the early 90's, and the fact that TW's been as good as it has for as long as it has is amazing.
        That and the fact that we have as many businesses selling Stude stuff is pretty cool, considering how long Studebaker itself has been gone. This just means we'll be able to get parts for that much longer (and on a completely selfish note, this means there might be some parts left by the time I can afford to get a stude...)

                Chill out John,
                the Dec mag I thought had a wonderful article on 1916 Studebakers. You wont find that sort of detail anywhere else, but in Turning Wheels. Plus there was the co-operator secion and the almanac.
                Most of my initial kowledge was gleaned from having Turning wheels going back to the begining. Also looking at cars helps and now there is even ebay and this forum to help you along.

                I dont mind the advertizing, as somebody might have a thingamybob I may require in 6 months.

                However, if you feel that way, then best not turn on the idiot box, or go out shopping as there seems to be a lot of bright lights around at the moment and fat blokes dressed up in red suits trying to flog Christmas to death.
                I think I will wander off down to the local 300 year old scrubbedy dub right now and get a pint of that warm beer that they drink up here, and park my Avanti convertible out the front, just for a bit of advertizing the Studebaker name. Would love a VBer's but that aint gonna happen here.
                I hope the natives dont mind the advertizing as I am in the minority.

                Stick with it, if you can as it is a fabulous rag for the money.

                Hey have you seen my old red 62 Daytona Convertible 4 speed in Adelaide. I hear the guy that drives it does not wear a shirt!!

                    I second Gary's response. John, I don't know you and so I don't know how old you are, but I suspect that the average age of the SDC membership is well beyond 40. Furthermore, most people in the old car hobby are middle class (or even better) males. The result is that most of us don't need anything for Christmas, except maybe underwear and socks. Around this time of year, our wives/partners are desperately searching for SOMETHING to put under the tree. Most wives wouldn't know how to find that OD solenoid that you so desperately need, but they sure can pick out an appropriate sweat shirt. Most of the ads in the Dec TW are not actually for Studebakers -- they're Studebaker-related clothing, models, publications, etc. Just perfect for the Stude-obsessed guy. It has ever been thus.

                        Let's see I'm 47, but I guess the main point is that "content" should be greater than advertising,not the other way round.
