    Just came from my box with the latest TW publication.
    Really nice article in this issue, about the '55 Speedster Custom by Dick Steinkamp. Scott Hall's '55 Speedster photo is cover worthy.
    Best I not disclose anything further, happy reading members.

    Walt,

    Thanks for the reminder. My membership expires this month so hopefully I will get one soon. Still kicking myself for not becoming a life member in 1975.

        Glad you're all enjoying the issue I haven't gotten yet.
        By the way, how many of you get TW with first class delivery?

          I do! I found it was a better way to get them while I was at sea due to the envelope they came in... [^]
          Now that I'm back, (hopefully for good!!!) I'm finding that it keeps them from getting too mangled up by the post-person trying to fit them into my mailbox!!!

            I get it first class, been here over a week now. I started getting it first class to get the adds earlier. Now I buy most parts on ebay. I droped first class for a year and started getting damaged copies so I went back to first class.

                Paul,

                I first joined in 1974 and recall the offer of the life membership. At the time I was still in school and when able, earning $1.60 an hour. For me $100 was a lot of money (and more than I spent on any of my first 3 Studebakers) and more than covered the cost of books for a semester. Hindsight is always 20/20.... (still wishing I'd had $1500 for the Tutweiler's 4x4 back then ).

                  Yeah, that was my view in the '70s. Hundred Bucks!?!?!? Who's got a hundred bucks to spend on a magazine!??? For a hundred bucks, I could buy a running, driving Studebaker in damned nice shape![:0][]

                    The $100 that I spent for life membership when it first came out was a lot of money then. I looked at it as a commitment to Studebaker and SDC. At that time, we didn't know if SDC, or us for that matter, would be around in 30 years. I think that life memberships in SDC should be opened up again. It would probably cost about $750 now.

                    I am SDC life member number 59, Paul J. is no. 86, Ted H. is no. 88, Bob P. is no. 42. SDC life memberships were started in 1973. I have been a member of SDC since 1968.

                      Must be the luck of the draw for deliverly.
                      I decided not to go first class this year,
                      got here the same day as before...no rips,
                      no tears, no mangling...course it may help
                      to have an oversized PO Box. Nice section
                      on custom and modifieds, didn't realize that
                      for 1953, a Champion could get a 454 ci as
                      an option ...the color adds a nice touch.....

                        I think that life memberships in SDC should be opened up again.

                        The only way it works is when the interest rates are high enough to cover the going yearly annual dues. I.E., SDC invested your $100 and the interest paid on it was enough and more to 'cover' your renewal each year and any future increase at the time. (It was only $6 a year in the 1970's when you opted to be 'lifer'). Right now, even at $750, with interest rates in the toilet at they are, it would barely cover the basic annual membership fee, and no guarantee they'd cover any future dues increases which are just bound to happen as we all know. Probably a poor investment for SDC at present.
