    heres a heads up for the custom crowd here.. i just got a delivery of the new k/i as ive said before i get these way before anyone else because the printer is on the next street from my shop:) .. as usual luke delivered a top shelf issue! i know i say that every time, but it just keeps getting better. and when you live, breathe, eat , and sleep kustoms like i do, its pretty exciting.. theres a cool garage scene with kieths (leadsled merc) 37 chevy taildragger that everyone on here will dig simply coz the car rules, and kieths one cool old goat!! and theres contributing articles in there from a few other HAMBERS. lead east coverage etc etc . well sorry if this seems "spammy" but such a good mag needs support, and i want everyone to know about it!! so check it out:cool:

    Awesome. One of the best mags on the rack, hands down. Not one page goes to waste with crap.

    Newark News in Newark, DE keeps it stocked on the racks. Many times I've passed up dinner at school to have the dough to make this purchase. Well worth going hungry for the night
     
  4. The Kukester told me he had the new one but that I'd probably see it at the GNRS before it got to the Charlton PO (they're starting to get the spring seed catalogs so they're pretty busy).

    Cool. I've been wanting to see El Capitola after the restoration.
    A couple of months ago John Barris (Sam's son) handed me a whole stack of photos of the car in it's pre-resto state o being.

    hahaha...I wouldn't expect anything different from the assguy!
    You're just lucky the farm animals can't tell what else your good at! haha

    This sucks cause I probably won't get to see a copy until I get back from the Pomona, hopefully they'll make it to the left coast quick.
     
  15. Mine's in the mail so maybe I'll get it today and bring it out with me.

    Pukester was going to see assguy in Peebidy today so whatever you do stay away from the North SHore - no good's coming out of that area today:eek:

    They'll probably have to call in the Haz-Mat team to clean up the mess!

    Thanks everyone for the comments! Glad you are digging the magazine. I'm finishing up stuffing the subscription envelopes right now and will have them all mailed by tomorrow.

    Cleatus, El Capitola is awesome! Always loved the car, but after seeing it in person I've gained a whole new respect for the car and Sam Barris. The man was an incredible craftsman.
    When the current owner, Guy Boucher opened the garage door, it was like having a religious experience! I can tell you that the car is in good hands too. Both Guy and his son John are good people and there was no compromise with the cars integrity during the restoration.
    Thanks again everyone!
    Luke

    I recieved mine and it is FANTASTIC!!!

    The El Capitola article is increadible. The photo's are absolutely gorgious. I always thought the car was really nice, but the Kustoms Illustrated article makes it far beyond that. Last issue had the Aztec this issue the El Capitola. I hope these two fantastic late 50's customs one day will be show together side by side.

    Great job Luke.
