    Is it????? I'm looking in to getting my 'zine going again. I hated that it died. But finding advertising was a pain. I just couldn't get the money together for printing. So it went belly up.

    But I got a lot of people tell me to do an online magazine. I'm a print purist. I love the feel of a magazine. BUT!!!! I really want this to work. So I was thinking I could do both. A print and online magazine. I could make it available really cheap online(like a buck or something) and then have small amounts printed up. Of course the goal is print only. It's all up in the air at this moment. I'm just looking for some feedback.

    Here is a link to issue #3 to see what it would look like. Let me know what you think. Or if your independently wealthy and want to invest! HA!

    I've thought about little book size before. Printing is just too damn expensive. I could have gotten done in China for dirt cheap but that just didn't feel right at all.

    oldschoolgasser55 that's an idea but it would the same as pay to play in the music world(ask me how I know!). KILLER build though!!!!!!!!!!!

    Any other ideas? Would people pay $1 or 2 for an issue?

    How do you get only the people who pay for it to view it? And how do you keep them for sharing it with others for free?

    Issue #3 has been out for a couple of years, so I'm just letting people take a look. I'll charge for #4. I'm still working out all the details. Thanks for the great response!

    Ok, thanks! I was considering the same thing for a book and was curious how to keep people from abusing the priviledge and sharing without others paying for it.

    Hi Randy,

    I remember you magazine frome years ago. I subscribed and loved it. I know that I was approched by some of your contributors and sent in loads of photos and a story on my '40 coupe.
    hope to see it soon in #4.

    Good luck and I'll be there for you!

    I loved your magazine and purchased each issue even bought some shirts to help keep it alive, also the best was page 26/27 of #3 that is TimmP and Me checking out the 32 at the drags.
    Anyway I think it is a good idea to bring it back I just have a problem reading while on the throne my damn computer is so heavy....maybe an I-pad is in my future.

    OK folks it's on! Give me a bit to get the website up and running. The hope is get limited print run but it will also be available online for a buck or two. I'm thinking of having the print version be slightly different to make it worth it.

    For everyone who subscribed, your subscription is still valid. That was the worst part about dumping everything, I felt like I screwed people. I'm not like that at all. So you will be getting your moneys worth!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks everyone. It's good to be back!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Alright it's back! The first three issues are available free as a digital download(you can also purchase a print version if you want). The print version prices are high because it's print on demand. I'm hoping to change that in the future. I want to get Blacktop Graffiti on the newsstands!!!!!!!!

    So tell me what you think and I'll let you know when the website is up.
