  • Turning Wheels question

    As I got my trailer fully packed yesterday for the trip to York, I took a few minutes today to sort through my old Turning Wheels magazines to see which ones I am missing. Turns out I do not have 11 copies from the time I joined in 1974 to present (where the hell is my November 2006 copy)? I thought that I might be able to pick up the missing ones at York.

    I could probably come up with a good set of trivia questions (i.e. first color glossy cover, the mislabed month, etc.). However, one thing struck me as odd. In four months in 1975 (March, May, June and July) and two in 1977 (January and April) there was a price of $1.00 on the cover. Given that TW was never distributed outside the club, what was the purpose of the pricing? Did it relate to the cost charged for back issues?

    I'm a little surprised that no one has responded to this. At least none of the other antique members like myself(since 1968)! IIRC, the club flirted briefly with the idea of putting a limited number of TW on newsstands. I think that was dropped quicly because the club didn't have the resources for something that large. I think it was also done with the idea of selling them at major swap meets and, as you suggested, with the idea of selling back issues.

    PS You responded to my post about TW a while back, but my replies to you were kicked back three times.

        Terry,

        Thanks for the response. Nothing like looking at over 30 years of issues to put them in order and then determine which ones are missing to pick up these little things. I probably should put up a few trivia questions based on what I gleaned the other day.

        Hopefully the link for my e-mail is now working. Mr. Shaw was having problems with Verizon, which is my ISP. If you need me, my address is thehearns at verizon dot net.
