Turning Wheels: The Studebaker Story. Turning Wheels: The Studebaker Story. South Bend, Indiana: Studebaker Corporation. 1954. Reprinted 2002 by Michiana History Publications. 16 pages. Softcover. (comic book, slick paper) Note: The original comic book was printed on paper typical of what other comic books used. This reprint is done on slick paper for durability. This comic book was originally published as part of the celebration of Studebaker’s 100 years as a major wagon and automobile manufacturer. It was the only transportation company to successfully move from the horse-and-buggy era to the early space age. "This is the story of a great American corporation, of blue-prints and tools, of wheels and engines, of sleek automobiles and sturdy trucks. It is a story, too, of a community and of the men who keep the plant humming told though the life of a typical employee and his family. Let's pick out one of these men and hear what he has to say. Let's get his story." A great promotional tool for the corporation, following the life of old Joe Powell (fictional character) and his family. The book follows Joe as a youngster visiting his father at the factory and following through his own life working for the company, his retirement, and the final joy of seeing his grandson join the company, where he would have a long, steady job. (In reality the plant was on its last legs and closed ten years later). I usually send materials within the next business day, unless there is a snowstorm, ice on the road, or I am on vacation, attending a genealogy conference, or doing research for a client. Most books are sent as media mail. Please allow for longer arrival times, especially during holiday times. I collect sales tax for Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Most states also collect sales taxes on shipping and handling charges.
