Ideally people should be able to submit a list of cars they'd like featured in the next issue...


    yes, Im kidding.
    Car-wise,My interests are quite liberal,so,I would suggest to CC that any car should be suitable for a feature,as long as it's not fitted with one of the following components;
    radials
    disc brakes
    independant suspension
    air con
    'lectric windows
    anything billet
    cup holders
    anything other than a U.S. V8(unless valve in block)............

    Taste in mags is the same as our taste in rods and music. We all have different preferences. Where CC is concerned it cant please all of us all of the time.

    Not taking anything away from this month's cars in saying that either, there's some very nice stuff in there, I just think there's a part of the scene not too well catered for now, though RetroCars is picking some of it up.
    American Car World usually does come up with quite a good balance. Some months I actually find it better than CC. People should give it a chance, as it ain't all bad.

    LOL all messing aside lets just say it will be a wee bit different and I think will showcase the talent of the builder for making it all come together.

    There is Classic American/American Car World for all the yankie stuff, RetroFord/ClassicFord for the Scorts and stuff, RetroRides for the other 'later' stuff, so whats the problem???

    Sorry if thats sounds harsh, but it (CC) can't do right for doing wrong...
