    Just to add my thanks for doing a great job of keeping all those parts available to us Stude people.

    Sounds like some was sweaty, some time was a cold time..

    Thank you for your efforts.

      We know it will happen at some point.
      Has any thought been given to salvaging the Studebaker logo at the top of the building facade?

            Look forward to visiting the new location in May! Very happy to hear the parts have been saved and sad to see another Stude building going away but I do understand. Ed

                Good job, Ed! Thanks for saving this stash, and I look forward to the day when I can brow$e thru the stuff on your website...

                  A welcome report, to be sure.

                  I might add that I spoke to Ed personally about this at our Indy Chapter SDC February meeting at Studebaker International. It was good to hear Ed say that he was comfortable at having scavenged every worthwhile piece (and then some) with time to spare.

                  As many of us know, Dennis and the new SASCO staff were rushed when the parts were last moved in 2000, and did not have adequate time or compentent help to effect the move with minimum unit loss or damage. As a result, a few were lost or left behind.

                  Not so this time. Ed reported having plenty of time and enough competent workers that the parts are actually in better care and custody now than during the 2000-2010 time period, and in a more secure facility to boot.

                  Further good news is that the soft trim parts, which have been a marginal stepchild due to their "perishability" when compared to hard parts, have now been broken out and are being similarly cataloged and cared for by a separate vendor.

                  This is the best of news all the way around for The Studebaker World. Congrats and thanks, Ed.

                    Thanks Ed for not only you stepping in and saving this treasure for us, but for your honesty, for this was where your dad worked for many years and who else can have such a relationship than you. It is sad to see the Engineering Building go, but not all is forgotten and you are our example to not let our emotions cloud desicions that have to be made, although painful, at times. How about a book with lots of pictures sharing the thoughts & stories from your dad? Thanks again for your continued effort & support!

                        Glad to see it done! Great job Ed![^]
                        And thanks for letting me hang out and move stuff when I wasn't in school. I look forward to invading, I mean visiting the new building often.[)][]
                        Keep up the good work, Ed![^]

                          It will be saved.

                            This is certainly great news. Especially once the stock is online, then it will be easy to determine whether or not asked for parts are available. Hopefully much stock will clear since it's now all properly catalogued.

                              Thanks for the update Ed. That move sounds like alot of hard work, but I can see how it could turn into a treasure hunt adventure.
