  • Unabriged Version

    Those of you that have gotten your latest Turning Wheels have probably seen my contribution to the coverage of the Pure Stock Muscle Car Drags of September 2005. I hadn't forseen myself making that contribution until I showed up at the track and had Bob Palma tell me I was "enlisted" to do a piece to provide a first-timer's perspective on the event.[:0][:I]
    I was all too happy to do so.[^] I really DID have a good time that weekend and the only problem was that it was much too fleeting![V]
    No collection of mute and shiny trailer queens, here was a Stude meet with REAL action! And one where Studes showed their stuff to the adoring AND to the brand Xers as well![] REAL ACTION STUDEBAKERING!!!Gotta love it!

    I took my time about straining my recollection thru a keyboard, but eventually I did it in my usual, book-length fashion[B)]. Of course, shy of adding extra pages to TW, the editors had no choice but to do surgery on my saga. I understood[}] - I'll get even someday!

    Anyhow, I've shared the unabridged version of my trip with a few folks via E-mail. All have said they enjoyed reading it. Given that, I asked the webmaster to paste it up in the Studebaker Stories section of this forum. Hope you like it. Here's a link:

      Great job, Bob. I'd like to attend one of those events myself but it is a little far away to drive a 40+ year old car. I know, I know some Stude nuts do it but that is a long way from home to get broken down. Anyway thanks for the write up. I never imagined that Studes were that quick--and I used to drive them back in the '60s.

            [:I] 'Gotta be patient, Todd. between the SIZE of the January 2006 Turning Wheels (16 pages thicker than usual) AND the full-color center section on The Studebaker National Museum opening AND the Christmas holiday pressure on the Post Office(s), the issue will simply arrive later than usual.

            I usually have my "regular member" copy a couple days before the end of the month, but January's just arrived today (January 5th).

            On the upside, I believe you'll find it is worth the wait. It could be the best issue of Turning Wheels to date, bar none. []

            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

            Ayn Rand:
            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                  No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                      I thought the biggest news in TW's this issue was the missing $100K-$200K SDC club money, questionably stolen/absconded/whatever...?

                          Thanks Bob ...it sure was some weekend there . Its a must on everyones list I'm sure.
                          That money stuff sure is upsetting as well But as long as they have put policys in place to stop ( which it sounds like they have )that I guess we live and learn.

                            Speaking of robbery,what about the august 2002 issue? The cover pic of the alledged 1965 Packard-and article by Paul McKeehan??
                            I know this is the wrong time to bring this up,with Art Unger in the hospital and all,but we were promised some sort of explanation to this hoax... I haven't forgotten,I think someone stold a lot of credibility from the SDC that month.
