  • latest Turning Wheels best ever!

    I just recieved my turning wheels mag and found Ed R. editorial most interesting. I met him breifly at the york swap meet and thought he was very interesting, He talked about the different type of studebaker collectors and how the many sub divisions of collecting connected folks, from the toys to trucks to the cars and the like, he has his hand on the pulse of this hobby and I am very glad that Studebaker has a person with that kind of in site on it's side. I think that Studebaker Int. is a top notch company and use them along with Steven Allen in all the parts that I need, I was very glad to see hawks featured for a change as most of the time it seems, hawks are over looked, I think the hawk was a great design second only to the corvette as far as I am concerned( my opinion only) I don't want to get the wizard mad again. Anyway nice good TW!

        Ive never really been concerned about the size of my corvette but, I suppose, if someone gave me one, I could sell it to pay for the restoration of my '53 Coupe! [^]

            Corvette's are just too common. <G>

            Seriously, what's going to attract more attention, just another Corvette or a nice Hawk!

                        It is interesting to me to read in one of my 50's car books that Thunderbirds outsold Corvettes by a wide margin in '55 through '57. Corvettes caught up when GM realized that Ford had a better idea of how to design a 2 passenger sports car. Of course, I believe that the '53 Studebaker Commander was the most beautiful car of the '50's and beyond. And, yes, I own one.
