  • September Turning Wheels

    I received the September issue of Turning Wheels today.

    Congratulations, Art & Ann on a superb issue!

    BTW, I think that this is the first time I've started a thread. I clicked on Post New Thread, but had no choices of fonts, sizes, italics, etc. What am I missing here? I see tham when I reply to a thread. I copied and pasted from Word Pad, but the italics for TW and color for "superb" didn't paste. I still haven't figured our how to get the smilies into the text of the thread.

    I'm going to bed.

        My August issue arrived 2 days ago, one would think for the cost we overseas folks pay the club could arrange for them to arrive less than a month after the rest of you. I guess I'm getting tired of posts like this when mine won't arrive for a month.

        Glad the fellow enjoyed his copy.

          This is one good reason to contact our club officers and lobby for the option of receiving Turning Wheels electronically. Distribution could be global on the same day. The international (and rural) members wouldn't have to wait on a slow boat or mule to get the latest copy. Again, before I start the flames, I am NOT suggesting that the printed version be taken away from those who want it. I am suggesting that the electronic distribution be ADDED as an option for those who would want in instead of, or in addition to a printed Turning Wheels.

            It sounds like Sept TWs will be worth waiting for. Our August issue arrived just last week & I must say congratulations to Ed Reynolds for giving us all an insight into what it took to create Studebaker International in South Bend 2010. I have seen many of those changes related to the Studebaker Parts scene since our first visit to South Bend in 1973 & hope to Ed's new South Bend operation during 2011.

              I'm confused as to why it takes a month of extra time to get your TW when being delivered out of the country. Which country's postal service and inspection is the problem here? If they are sent out at the exact time as ours, at an extra cost, they should be leaving at the same time from the U.S. and, I would think, well on their way with the same quick USPS service.

                According to the mailing label it was posted from Germany??? Sometimes the Source Interlink and Hemmings magazines come from Belgium/France/Sweden/ and New Zealand depending on what arrangements are made.

                Not sure, and pointless asking American club officers as I'm in Australia. The local contact is useless.

                    John,it may be useful to contact the SDC International Director listed on the back page of Turning Wheels and pose the question of delayed delivery to him. In turn the board could then discuss the complaints and possibly come up with a solution. These people have been elected to run the clubs business and are the folks to go to in my opinion.

                          Even first class mail takes two weeks to go across the US/Canada border. I have a lot of cross-border business transactions (insurance) and routinely tell my clients to pay the premium before the bill arrives, because if they wait, the policy will be cancelled before they ever see the invoice. Mail inside the border of one's respective domicile usually doesn't take more than 24-48 hours....maybe three days if it's coming from back east.

                            I could not agree more. Speedier delivery at potentially lower cost. Plus we keep hard copies for those that want it. I will lobby my SDC Director and Zone Co-ordinator whenever I see them (sorry guys).
