    What ever happened to the 1930's something window wings that were stolen right off someone's car during a international meet. I believe they had someone on camera stealing them from a hotel parking lot.

      At the '03 meet in Sacto, I was carrying in armloads of stuff to sell off Rebelstude's tables. My truck was just outside the building where we were vending. Last trip out to get stuff, the nice set of truck hubcaps I'd brought had disappeared from the bed. POOF! Whoever it was had to have been watching me make repeated trips and snatched them as I went in with a bunch of stuff. I hope they all popped off his wheels since then!
      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Yep. A lot of that theft was by my brother in laws brother who I unfortunately recruited to help. We got most of the stuff back to Dennis but certainly not everything. Dennis gave the guy a break by not prosecutiing, a break he did not deserve. (There were rumors that he was selling some stuff at a later swap meet). I gave up a week vacation to help Dennis and the guys but the memory will always have that cloud. He has since disappeared and nobody in the family cares.

          Wow...the things you find out on the forum. This is the first I have heard of this. After seeing the condition of the building and how unorganized and shelf worn some of the parts were, I kind of felt that some of Dennis' troubles was of his own doings. However, talk about kicking a guy when he was down...I'm glad much of the stuff was recovered. Often you'll find that a thief like this has had enablers along the way. Not prosecuting them sometimes just makes them bolder.

              Jim- I guess I'd draw a distinction between the thugs and shysters in nice suits you guys "out there" send to DC, and those of us who live and work here as waiters, car mechanics, house painters, chefs, plumbers, and cops.

                Right, Skip; let's hear it for the DC CHEFS! <GGG> BP
                We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                Ayn Rand:
                "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.
