  • October Turning Wheels

    I just received my October Turning Wheels. I loved the story of Mrs. Ratcliffe's Lark (the cover car). I hope to be able to pass on my Studebakers (in the far far distant future) to someone that cares for them as Ross Miller has cared for Mrs. Ratcliffe's car.

    Hi Jon, Yes, neat story, Ross is a great guy, I met him years ago when he bought a 63 Daytona Convertible from the widow of one of my customers. I enjoyed your interview with Andy Studebaker, even though I am a sports widower,(my wife is the sports nut in the family) and, aside from the "good old days of NASCAR", could care less about professional sports.

      The October issue is one of the better issues in my opinion. Lots of good information to soak up.

        And the President's message makes me a little upset that such a go-getter was not supported better. Either Tom was better than others at enumerating what things have been acted on, or he did more in his tenure than any other SDC president since Mr. Barnes.

            Yup! Still as galling (sp?) as it was when it happened.

              I, too, very much enjoyed the story of Mrs. Ratcliffe's Lark, being the nostalgic fool I am! Great story.

                RE: The October 2012 Turning Wheels: Please take note of the Birthday Card request on Page 12 and send a card to Tim Lloyd ASAP, for Mr. Johnson. You don't have to wait until closer to the time because Tim is just accumulating the cards anyway.

                Mr. Johnson "gets" Turning Wheels, so he knows of this plan. I'd hate for him to receive just a handful of cards when we have the potential to send a hundred pounds of them, so please send a card to Tim Lloyd post haste.

                (Yes, I've already sent mine.) Thanks. BP

                    first thing I saw as I opened it backwards. I thought "COOL, a car from Georgia!" Next thought was "That car looks familiar." Black is the way to go. even though ours is red.

                          i pick'em as i see 'em! i love the "mods" you've done to both of your Studes!!!

                          i've had a wild "mod" - the '63 Avanti with a full Corvette drive train ( purists: don't blame me - again - i didn't do it, the p.o. did - and pics are on Mr Johnstone's site), and a the '40 "original survivor". loved them both and soon hope that i can get one mod & one original (or close), again...

                            Scott, some may say i am an advocate of Tom and I am. The accomplishments he listed in his President's message are a fact and all can be verified as done and accomplished. What goes around comes around and a direct result will be a basically new set of By-Laws that will move this club into the 20th Century and out of the mid 60's of the 20th century.

                              I received my TWs this morning , probably one of the earliest ever , I give our Director Cliff Tattersall full credit for that one accomlishment.
                              I especially liked Tom's Presidents message as well ......very well done and he should have at least a good pat on the back ....well done Tom.
