    I had a couple of minutes this morning to look through some Studebaker stuff I aquired this week and came across a few magazines from the Studebaker Automobile Club of America. I had never heard of this group. Does anyone have any info on it? The magazines were from the mid to late 70's and had some good articles in them.

    I was a member and for some unknown reason, appointed the District Governor of Virginia. I was sent a handful of envelopes, some stationary and a few postage stamps (I think $.13) to conduct my business. I was only a member for a couple of years ('76 & '77), but still have the monthly newsletters and the quarterly magazines.
