  • Best 'Turning Wheels' Cover?

    Let's face it,....it would probably be impossible to agree on the BEST EVER photo used for the front cover of TURNING WHEELS Magazine, but over the years there have been some truly memorable ones!

    One outstanding favorite of mine was the photo used on the cover of the March, 2012 issue.....It was a beautiful color shot taken in 1963 (1962?) of Sherwood Egbert and Andy Granatelli preparing to take a ride in a brand new 'Avanti Red' '63 Avanti at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway....two 'happy campers' indeed!.....Egbert sporting sunglasses and holding his characteristic cigar!

    Does anyone else have a favorite TURNING WHEELS cover photo that comes to mind?....Comments welcome!

    The one of a 1939 Studebaker President and a 1939 Coupe Express on the back October 1989 comes to mind only because I took the photos for the cover

      Another favorite of mine was the 10/95 cover....This one featured a 3/4 rear view of a 'Parade Red' '58 Packard Hawk....I liked that shot so much I framed it!!

I always felt this photo showed Studebaker in an adventurous and youthful spirit. You can see it at: http://www.studebakervendors.com/tw-photos/index.htm (top left).

        In 1998, a guy wrote to me asking for a photo of a 1950 Commander convertible. I didn't have one, but I remembered this photo. I contacted Linda Fox about getting a copy of the photo and instead, Fred K. Fox sent me a copy of the whole magazine. I forwarded it to the man who wanted the photo. He was so appreciative in his response. Made me feel good too! Great photo. Great memory.
        Yes, it was/is a nice car. Frank owned top notch 1950, 1951 and 1952 convertibles at that time, as well as other Studebakers.

              Why does the 1950 Commander Convertible by Franklin Gross look just like the 1950 Champion Convertible by Ron Vanderboegh, in the photo to the right? I have seen a couple other 1950 Commander Convertibles and they look like the yellow one in the wedding photo of the Walkers about 18 photos down from Gross’s.

                  I think that you are on to something. I believe that both cars are Champions. I know that Frank's 1951 and 1952 convertibles were Commanders and I assumed that the 1950 was also. I do not know about the labeling, but the picture shows a Champion. By the way, Frank's surname was Goss.

                  EDIT: A comment about the Fox wedding picture, just before the one that you referenced - The Fox family purchased that 1950 Land Cruiser new (and had the headlight rims changed when new).

                        Yes. The car was found in Donald, Washington of all places!!!
                        Here's a pic from shortly after the auction ended on that magical day back in June of 2001~

                            Another photo I admire very much was the one used on the February 2016 TW cover!...That was a right side (profile) view of a solid red '54 Commander hardtop, with white-wall tires and the optional 'spoke' wheelcovers.

                            I don't ever remember seeing a nicer picture of a stock '53-'54 C-K type!!

                              Another great TW cover shot graced the September 2015 issue. In this one Ed Reynolds is shown driving his '53-'54 prototype convertible through the Studebaker Proving Grounds gate....with Larry Swanson as the security guard standing at the gate!

                              'photoshoped' and very well done at that!
