    Richard,

    I for one appreciate your posting of these period pictures and all you have done for the Studebaker hobby. While I noted what I thought were the reasons for your name appearing on the photographs, your response clearly sums it up.

    Too many people take for granted what others provide with minimal or no charge without giving thought to the time and expense involved. I for one hope you continue to post them and we are both still alive to see the last of the 15,000 images posted.

      Other than the amount of time it takes me to Photoshop your name off the photos<G>, I think you are doing the right thing and 99.9% here appreciate your effort both now and in the past. (I counted them, yep, 99.9%)

        Interesting that the car in the foreground has wheelcovers and the others do not appear to. Many of us have thought they were added once they reached the dealer.

                  Hey Mr. Quinn, you have EVERY right to plaster your name on those photos, and I couldn't care less that it is there. My imagination can easily see around it. Besides, your font is really rather classy.

                  Keep posting pics with your name on them and I shall be willing to open a can of whupa$$ on anybody you put the contract out on.

                      Mr Quinn, I appreciate every photo you have - or will - post on here. Your name across each one always clearly stated to me what you took two paragraphs to reiterate. Anyone who cannot understand that is either rather selfish or just doesn't understand today's internet world. Please continue for the benefit of all of us.

                        I also agree with the comments. I love the old pictures that we would not get to see otherwise and they would be lost or forgotten in a museum or worse. I thank you VERY much for sharing and helping out Studebakers owners everywhere.

                          Richard, your posts are one of the first things I look for when I log on. I appreciate your effort and understand perfectly why you want to protect your property. Please ignore the ungrateful and lead on.

                            Dick,
                            It is embarrassing that Avanti Lover is a fellow Australian & has goofed up before on the Forum. I thought your advice to him was eloquent.

                              For me these photographs are like waiting each day for my Turning Wheels; I can't wait for the next one. These are moments in time that few people have ever seen. Sharing them is a gift. Thanks for the effort involved.
