  • Latest Turining Wheels

    I just received my August issue of Turning Wheels, and I have to say: "AWESOME"!!!
    First of all it's now shipped in a plastic bag, which looks like it will eliminate scuffing of the cover pix, and it should prevent bent pages. Already this issue looks "cleaner", as the plastic has eliminated countless hand prints and general grime.
    Secondly, the color pages are getting better, and what stories! Ed Reynolds Stude Int'l article is especially interesting; what with the pictures and historical references.
    Congrats Art on another great issue!

      BruceStude, I'd have to second your comment on the magazine. Haven't had a chance to thumb through it, but it's in the best shape that I've ever recieved one in. BTW - thanks again for the part for the champion part. Did you ever get called out to fight that fire?

        I got mine today too, and agree that it was a very good issue! I also really enjoyed Eds article about the move. It was also the first time that some of my photos that I took while helping at the engineering made it in TW (Eds article, page 32 and 36), unfortunately they didn't get creadited. Still a great aricle! I enjoyed reading a little more on the prototypes.

          Pretty COOL! I noticed all of the former cover BORDERS are GONE!

            Beautiful Turning wheels this month! Good job to all who contributed.
            Happy as a clam with the polybagging, too. Nice surprise.

              Is the plastic cover for all or just first class?

                For all- a decision made at the Glendale meet. Mimi explains the decision in her column in the August TW.

                  On one of the other threads, members seem to be complaining about the poly bag decision. Here, it seems we like them. I do! I average 4 issues per year that need replaced. Mine arrived in the bag, in pristine condition. Congrats B.O.D's. stupak

                    I just received my August issue of TW yesterday. It arrived in great shape. Although I've not read the whole issue, I really enjoyed Matthew's review of the Glendale meet. Nice job, Matt.
                    Ed Reynolds did a great job describing the incredible move of SASCO to his new location in South Bend. Terrific photos too. I can't wait to see the new warehouse when I next visit South Bend.
                    I'm never dissappointed with any issue, but this one is exceptional.
                    Thanks.

                      I thought this was a particularly good issue, too.

                          Nice issue and glad to see the bag.
                          Too many issues spoiled by the USPS (or someone)...folded, wet, torn.
                          Many of my other magazines (Avanti OAI, Mercedes Club, Sports Car Market, two car/plane imports from the UK, Basset Hound Club) come bagged, so it's hardly a luxury.

                            First class comes in a paper envelope.

                              Hey oregonroses-It was good to see you, hope that part works out OK. No, I didn't go out to the wild fire (it eventually burned 6,200 acres), but we did had a HUGE warehouse fire 2 days later. My crew manned a 102 ft. ladder flowing 1200 GPM for about 3 hours.
