      If you go to Hemmings web site, you can get back issues. Right now, the July issue is the most recent one so, you'd have to wait till next month to buy this as a back issue.

      You should look into subscribing. Its a not a bad magazine and its about $18 per year..

        I checked with Hemmings and they cannot permit scanning and posting but George also said if I give him Matthew's address he will personally send him a copy.

        Matthew, please email me your address.

        Yeah, Matthew and Thank you, George.

          Hi
          I just received my copy yesterday and have read all the Studebaker coverage already, very well done and worth buying a copy if you aren't a subscriber.
          HCC is doing a good job of including independent makes each issue as well as the popular cars. It is heartening to see that, after all, they have to sell magazines, volume goes to those to who serve up the reinforcement to the masses hooked on the recognized popular big three models. Many those masses will read the articles on the independents as well.
          HCC also advocates a more realistic, interest-in-the-cars-not-just-their-value-reasons-to-collect. Their dismay with the overheated prices many cars bring at auction is evident, appeals to my sense as well. They encourage inclusion of makes and models frequently dismissed as unworthy of collecting, and feature original, driver condition cars as worthwhile for there usable enjoyable qualities.
          It is a publication worth your yearly subscription.
          Regards
          Steve

                Come on, Matthew <G>. How is he going to send you an issue/copy of the magazine with your e-mail address? Provide the guy with your mailing (snail mail/USPS) mailing address. You should do this off the forum.

                    Has anyone else noticed a possible awakening of the collectable Studebaker? [/quote]

                    This interest in Studebaker started about three years ago. I believe it is because the are really very few entry level collectible cars out there, and Studebaker meets the need. Once the newbies got their hands on one word spread about them. Along with this a number of motion pictures started using Studebakers, and the biggest boost was toy companies, and model makers, both diecast and plastic discovered there were no licensing issues, trademark infrigments or intellectual property to worry about.
                    AMT/ERTL announced at the 1999 Toy Fair in NY a 1/24 1/25 1950 Bullet Nose kit. I pre-ordered 4 cases, but the market at that point would not support the full tooling costs. I suspect that at this coming Toy Fair in NY it will be added to the line and released in 2007. However, with all this interest in Studebakers, current owners are not bringing them to local cruise nights, and major car shows. We need more participation from current owners to get the car fully known.

                      I think a big attraction to Studes is this: If you'd like to have an old car to tinker with and enjoy, but aren't a millionaire, Studes are perfect: Good cars, lots of resto and NOS stuff available, styling that was stodgy or frumpy 40 years ago is really cool looking in todays world; and best of all, they're comparatively cheap to buy!!

                      Plus, as I've said before, what car name's more fun to say than, "Studebaker"?

                        I like the fact that when you go to a show or a meet, unless its Studebaker specific, your the only one with one there. Everyone else has a Corvette or Rustang.. Their different and fun to drive..

                              I guess they changed ponys enough times to finally make it to the Northwest Territory so I finally got my issue. What a nice write up even if it's not always accurate they seem to be the only magazine that trys to include off beat makes.
