    I bought it. First issue, give it a go. $8 is what it costs to not have ads. My only gripe is that it is really more of a pictorial than a magazine. Mostly photos, little text. I was done reading it so quickly I didn't feel like I got my money's worth.

    But that's just me.

    I remember a time when if HOT ROD put out a magazine called "overkill" it would have been 200MPH Camaros, 8-9 second street cars, 1000 HP blowermotors.. things like that.

    nowadays "overkill" is just bad taste and stupidity. who the fuck thinks that car on the cover looks good?

    call me whatever you want. anybody who likes that car has nothing to say that I want to hear.

    psycosis is not a word.

    i enjoyed this magazine for several reasons

    1. no ads.
    2. very cool cars
    3. very cool stories
    4. very different engine car combos.


    cons...

    some cars were not my taste.



    if they made ANOTHER i would buy.

    that was the main reason i bought the mag. i love the way they relocated the radiator below the engine. very neat idea. thinking about doing something similar to my car.

    So what do you drive? How many cars have you built from the ground up? Lot of hate from a guy with a cartoon as his avatar. You sound like a poser that hides behind a keyboard and drives a toyota. I am sure nobody gives a crap what you think but if it makes you feel special then carry on :)
     
  16. It's gotta be cool. It's listed for $42.22 on ebay!

    Ballsy magazine.Read the opening editorial.I will look at it and learn.
     
  18. Seems like they want to get some of the money that is being spent on the R** Rod magazines.Trust me those r.r. mags do sell and they do make money.I looked at the mag at the bookstore and set it right back down.I wouldn't take one of these if they were giving them away. Oh well just my two cents.....and that doesn't mean much.

  19. I concur. This phrase, like the term, Orcabetty, will become part of the vernacular. I wish I had heard it before the Mooneyes Xmas Party. I would've used it...
     
  20. Didn't see it at the store last week! Look for it tomorrow though.

    And "tatted up fender lizards" - you guys are way funee!

    I vote for more fender lizards and fewer tats!! Damn, those things can be UGLY!

    I bought a copy of "Overkill" at Walmart yesterday. An aquaintance of mine, Bob Larson, has his car featured in the magazine. He did an outstanding job of building his car, and he has driven and raced it on the Hot Rod Drag Week. Bob didn't build his car "by the numbers". He built it to please himself, and if someone doesn't like it, too bad. I respect that attitude.

    My hubby's pickup is in it but we can't find the mag anywhere here in Southern Idaho. Have gotten calls from friends in Virginia, South Dakota & California that have been able to purchase it but :confused: none for the Idaho Farmer as yet.

    By the way we do live in the land of the free so go for whatever floats your boat and makes you happy but no tats-here, brands are for livestock.

    my cover has been blown.

    that car is stupid looking and has no place here on the HAMB no matter what I have built.

    Sounds like my kind of guy. :cool: And that Dodge coupe is pure bad ass.

    I picked up a copy of the mag as well- other than that lame Cummins-powered Cadillac, I had at least a few things to like about every featured car in the mag.

    Santa stuck a copy of it under the tree for me.....I like it. I know it isn't HAMB friendly stuff, but it's still nice to "stretch the noodle"with some creative thinking!
