    That's cool to see. I noticed that a tribune reporter came in the other day to take photos, didn't stay too long though. I figured the day was coming. Way back in the day the tribune featured what was going on at Newman & Altman, and I remember in the early 2000s they had a story on SASCO.
    Reading some of Ed's responses to questions in the article made me think and chuckle a little. Without a doubt, the Studebaker business is big business, and he keeps me busy. Kind of a neat position to be in from my perspective.

        Thanks Chris for the link. Nice article on Ed, and SO true are the comments that Bob Halgren mentioned.

        Thanks to Ed also for stepping up back in 2009

              Chris,
              It looks as if you still have a job for the new year, doesn't it? I hope Santa is good to all of you carrying on the Studebaker Parts Supply business!

                Yup, I'm still there and in today's world I'm glad for that. Looking back now I can't believe how fast time has flown by and how long I've been there. It all started when I was a freshman in high school in 2009. The winter of '09 was the heart of the SASCO/SI move and during my Christmas break I was determined to help. So I just showed up one day with Jim Maxey, introduced myself to Ed and seeing that since I didn't drive yet I had nowhere to go, I started taking stainless trim off the racks and putting it on carts to be sent over to Chippewa. I think I'm probably the only employee at SI that never formally got hired, I just started. No interview, no resume, just started working and I was happy as a Lark to be there. Back then since I wasn't formally hired, and was 16 with no state work permit, I wasn't on the payroll; so that's how I ended up with the Turtle. Once we got established at the Chippewa Plant Ed kept me around and put me on the payroll and I've been there ever since. I can't believe 2014 will mark 5 years that we've been at Chippewa, to me it doesn't feel like it's been that long. How's that for a story?!

                  Well, as the rest of us know, the years just seem to fly by.

                  Well done and have a great life.

                    SASCO had some non-Studebaker parts in inventory, also. The Monroe air shocks for my 1973 F--- Gran Torino wagon were purchased there. It was so interesting touring the place it was hard to leave. We are fortunate that the inventory has been preserved.

                        Even if you get hired as a firefighter full time in the area, keep working at SASCO on a part-time basis on Saturdays, or whatever your day-off is going to be. That 'beer money' sure comes in handy once in a while!!
