  • Turning Wheels article on S. Bend SI facility

    A last week's meet in South Bend, someone mentioned one of the Studebaker International employees did a Turning Wheels article on the facility. Who knows what issue? Thanks!

    Do you mean an article on the facility as currently used by SI, or an older article on the facility as it was being used about 20 years ago? BP

      As I understood the discussion, it was as is today. I'm interested in both -- know what issue(s)?

        Bill: I don't know anything about a recent article, but my lengthy article on what is known as The Chippewa Plant, with many photos, appears in the February 1990 Turning Wheels. BP

                Oh it's no big deal, I write about anything Studebaker. I have no problem writing one about the Chippewa plant/SI if there is a call for it, so I will.

                  My point in asking was that I think it makes an interesting story of one man's vision, courage and challenge to keep Studebaker's on the road. Might help those that aren't familiar with facility to understand the comment, "...more parts becoming available all the time", or what ever I seen, read, or heard. Having said that, I have a hard time understanding the need for a 50-year old radiator or heater hose. Might be "nice" to have a few available for "authenticity".
