    Thanks for posting this Jeff. Seeing this gives me a thought that the Forum and its members could be of service when a Studebaker is stolen. Sort of an Amber Alert for Studebakers.

    Here's how:

    1. Like Jeff has done here, ALL members are encouraged to post a "Stolen Studebaker Alert" on this forum. If you are a non-registered forum lurker you can either register and post OR you can email me the info and I will post it for you. Obviously, the sooner the better applies.

    When doing so, please use the heading: "Stolen Studebaker Alert: City, State" (just like Jeff has done)

    2. Also, I will submit a brief notice for Turning Wheels to advise/remind SDC members about the "Stolen Studebaker Alert" and how to get it posted on the forum ASAP.

    3. Along with that, either I, Jeff or ANY Chapter Editor can post the alert in the SDC Editor & Publisher Forum along with a recommendation that other editors (especially those in areas/states around the theft location) immediately forward the alert to its members with email addys. This, of course, would be at each editor's discretion but I'd guess most, if not all, would want to do this.

    The more info the owner can provide the better: especially numbers, a picture, etc.

    The above has been right off the top of my head so if there is a better/faster way to help get the word out about a stolen Studebaker, please offer your suggestion.

    It's a bit of extra effort for those involved with probably just a slight chance of success... but IMO certainly worth trying.

                The idea is good, but we have to be carefull. The last "stolen" Studebaker that I was trying to track down turned out to not be truly stolen but rather an estate dispute item. The vehicle was in the correct hands, but another family member was trying to get possession of the vehicle. I don't remember if that one was posted on the SDC Forum or not.

                        That is a good point.
                        Since I had 'vetted' this info based on a published newspaper article from a sheriff's department, I thought it prudent to post here.
                        Had it been 'word of mouth' some additional clarification would have been appropriate.
                        This does bring up a good point about recording serial numbers and keeping photo records of our Stude's though. Seems this car had a value of around a hundred bucks as scrap metal. There are some that will do most anything for that hundred bucks. (The alleged thief said he was going to cut it up for scrap).

                            I wonder how much the theif (alleged) is worth as scrap?

                            Rather brazen to leave the car sitting in the drive way without reporting having found it to the authorities.

                            This is a great idea to post such stolen vehicles.
