    10 page Ford V8 flathead article in it, with 2 pages of flathead sources.
    Have not read it all yet, but looks interesting, at least for a flathead newbie like myself.

    I guess it's available everywhere on God's green earth except Fresno, I went to four bookstores today and nothing. :mad: :mad: Can someone post a scan of the cover so I know what to look for?

    It's a decent magazine, the wife went up to wally-world and grabbed it for me. I read the flathead article somewhere before, but otherwise, looks like a good start, a little thin on pages for the price though.

    Just picked it up this morning in the airport in Philadelphia, read it on the flight- good looking magazine, great pix with background info (love the last page pic) and some pretty damn good pix by Mr. Freiburger, too.
    looks like another title to add to the stacks of car magazines in my studio...

    I got a copy today at the local book store. Fantastic pictures, old and new. Good content,what little there was. I liked the article on the scratchmobile. At $7 I agree with others that won't buy again, I think i'd rather buy a couple gallons of gas.

    It's not bad, but for $7.00 you can almost double that at get TRJ and get more bang for your buck.
  25. Where have you been?
  26. Why in the heck was this thing 7 bucks? It was not even as thick as a standard issue of R & C or HOT ROD. If it comes out quarterly at 5 bucks I am in--other than that, it makes a nice addition to the one- off mags that just keep stacking on my shelf. Needs more technical material and less butt and tat shots.

    Way cool to find out HRD is back! I wrote the article on Mouse, Roth, etc., in the second (and last) of the original two issues, entitled "Of Mouse And Men: A Brief History of the Weirdo Shirt".

    I haven't seen the issue anywhere around the metro Detroit area as of yet, but I'll be searching from now on. I hope it's successful.

  28. The first issue back is probably kind of small because they are just coming back out again. I would guess they didn't want to go too big and run the risk of printing something people might get a bad first (or second) impression of. Instead they started out small and compact with not too many ads, much like the older hotrod magazines started out during the 40's and 50's. I'm sure it will grow as time goes on! Hopefully the suits don't ruin it again. $7.00 dollars is kind of expensive, but I do like the mag.
