  • POP QUIZ: Two current Turning Wheels

    Time for another Pop Quiz. Winner receives two NOS uncirculated Studebaker Corporation Red Ball letterhead envelopes. The first specifically-correct post wins. (Previous Red Ball envelope winners, kindly give others a 24-hour head start before posting.)

    Question: What feature do the September and October 2011 issues of Turning Wheels have in common other than "the usual stuff?" There is something unique about these issues being back-to-back, sharing an unusual commonality.

    The answer must be specific.

    Here's a clue: It involves the number 5,371. If your answer cannot be squared with that number, your answer is either wrong or, more likely, just incomplete and needs more "specificity."

    Happy hunting! (Once you "see" it, it is surprisingly obvious.) BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Well, OK, Bob; mine arrived early this week and I can't think of any group who gets it after we do out of the west central Indianapolis area! I guess I just learned of one.

      Maybe yours will arrive before anybody posts the right answer, Bob. BP

              Sorry, folks; I didn't realize so many of them were yet to be received. Let's let this Pop Quiz run anyway, since it is already posted.

              In the future, I'll be mindful of such delivery times. (Besides, "it ain't over 'til it's over" in that no one has yet posted the correct answer!) BP

                My answer/guess is 1959 Silver Hawk 8s, since there were 5371 built.

                  Agreed, Gary; Studebaker built 5,371 1959 Silver Hawk V8s, but that's not the answer to the Pop Quiz.

                  But you've provided the members with only the September 2011 Turning Wheels a good shot at winning the Pop Quiz even though they haven't seen the October Turning Wheels. (I.e., they can now look at their September copies and take a WAG at the Pop Quiz and maybe get it right!)

                  On their behalf, thank you.<GGG> BP

                      Other than they were "born" as 1959 Silver Hawk 8s, they are both modified cars now, so I do not see what you are driving at.

                          There are 59 Silver Hawks on the cover of each?

                            BINGO! You're right, Dave: The correct answer to the quiz is: There is a 1959 Silver Hawk on two sequential front covers of Turning Wheels; September and October 2011.

                            Your question mark indicates you are yet to receive your October issue and so you took a guess based on the above information; correct? If so, "no problem," there's no rule against guessing.

                            Is your address still on SE Thompson in Corvallis, per the current SDC Roster? If you'll confirm; I'll send a couple envelopes. BP

                              Cool! Thanks Bob.

                              I did receive my October TW yesterday, but I took it to work with me to read at lunch and left it on my desk. Who can forget that beautiful cover!

                              That is my correct address. And thanks again--this is a really cool thing you do.
