Yeah I checked that out, but that's not exactly a new issue - it's about 3 issues old !! Carcraft has been doing a good job lately, good for them. - Chad

Stupid Southern Ohio

I didnt evencheck the date oh well. It doesnt surprise me this area has old magazines all over the shelves. On a better note i really like the magazine they seem to be less chevy oriented than magazines like Hot Rod. They have a well balanced issues with all makes (except Hondas):p: :man was that funny stuff. They earned a new subscriber.

I used to subsribe

But most of the stuff I've seen more than once over the years and years and years... Hey, remember that I'm a 'Senior Motorhead'. :p:

Many years ago they took a 70 Caddy 2-door and raced it. Baseline, with two more doors in the back seat (they said that they wanted to race a 'four door'!), then they started cutting the car apart, lightening it and made dragstrip passes at different stages of dis-assembly until it was just the bare frame and drivetrain. I thought that was funnier than heck! As an aside, my mother had a Caddy identical to the one they trashed. It ran better than theirs for a baseline. Would you believe a 15.4 second pass? This was back in the early-mid 80s when GT Mustangs were only good for 16 flat, and Z-28s and Trash-Ams did 16.5s. Needless to say, Mom's car got a lot of laughs! That 472 cubic inch high-compression engine was putting out some serious power!

I'm glad they still have a sense of humor and are into the more 'off-beat' cars.
