    Kevin will appreciate the kind words, but I quickly removed my post before I knew anyone replied to it because that wasn't the purpose of this post. Kevin will land somewhere because he's a solid guy. Thanks Jim

    This should be interesting - RF's past directions always seemed to include a "My way or the Hiway" attitude.

    Congrats to RF, he did several good articles when he was doing or writing articles for the one of the old/custom truck magazines.

    Over the years, seems that Rob has been one of the few guys writing for the "mainstream" mags that really get it, rather than just emulating. Can't wait to see the direction he takes the mag.

    Congrats Rob, very well deserved!!
    Always love your stuff also Kevin!!

    Best of luck to Kevin, you really turned R&C around for me. I actually had a subscription to the mag. First time in years that I had done that with any type of magazine.

    Congrats RF. You will do good!

    Guess I will jump on the bandwagon too. I have really enjoyed RF's work in classic trucks, especially his new/old chevy build. I also followed Kevin from the early days at the same mag then to RC. Best of luck to both.

    Yeah, Rob's OK I guess. Congrats buddy. I didn't know if I was supposed to spill the beans or not.

    Great news for one is bad news for another. I know Rob's work and it's good and edgy. But I know Kevin and he's a solid citizen with ton's of hot rod cred. But he'd be the last person to speak of his own acheivements. I just can't be so cheerie over a good guy get'in dumped.

    Wow. That IS big news! Kevin was always cool to me. He gave me my first cover for R&C (along with Aaron Kahan's help I'm sure.) with the Atomic Punk. I wish him well in whatever he pursues. I just met Aaron last week at Englishtown and he never said anything about Kevin leaving. At any rate, I hope the magazine gets thicker and they use better stock paper..

    Hey Ryan I was there at the High Octane Art show... any idea what month/year R&C covered it? I would like to find it!!
  20. I like most of Rob's work, but gotta agree here. I don't get it, Kevin did such a good job in turning around R&C. Before Kevin, I could take or leave it. I've got a sub, so I'll continue with that but I'll be watching closely. Like I said, I do enjoy most of RF's work and thought he was mostly taking CT in the right direction (although I think the modern truck thing is a total bust). I know Rob gets all sensitive about people commenting on his work and doesn't like feedback much (unless it's positive), but that's the life of a media mogul:D

    Mostly I feel for Kevin. I know he'll land on his feet, he has too much talent. Hey Jim, maybe you and Kevin should hook up and show them what the best of former RC'ers can do!:cool:

    Seems like change is the only constant anymore. I liked what Kevin has done with R&C, so much so that I subscribed a couple years ago after a long lay off. My sub is coming due soon I think I will let go and see what changes are made. Big Dad set the bar pretty high for me, God I miss that guy.

    I like Rod and Custom......would be cool to bring back the littles with just traditional style cars and maybe see editorials in there by Ryan and Rikster. Congradulations and good luck.
  29. I was talking (email) with Kevin on Thursday about the 2010 GNRS and the display that there is going to be on R&C and Street Rodder former cover cars. I was helping with two of the more famous ones and he seemed excited about the project and had no hint of what was about to come.
    Friday afternoon, I get told by someone else involved with that project that he was gone. Tells me he was unceremoniously fired, no real explanation.
    Whether you like his stuff or for that matter him, I think most will agree he had done good things for that magazine and deserved better treatment than that.

    I'm sure Rob will do a great job, but it seems kind of bitter sweet doesn't it.
