Im sure this has been covered but would i be right in thinking that when the mag was first published it had Henry on the cover and was it on the tv as an advert

Has anybody got it on video or wasnt they around then (abit b4 my time :incheek:) or isit on the WWW anywhere ?????

I remember helping take Henry up to a studio in London for the shoot and then picking it up later. And no congestion charge back then! There was a letter from me and a pic of my 58 Chevy in the first issue too.

is there a link anywhere on the web to the TV ad for the first issue of street machine?, would love to see it again,
bet it looks well dated and tacky, still love to see it though.

If I remember rightly Gary, it lasted about 10 seconds, had Henry [which ain't a gasser, it's a high rider] driving through a paper banner with "Street Machine, new custom magazine, Street machine" being sung over it. I know I only saw it once very late one night, doubt they had the money to run it much more than that.

my guess is it (he) will be ready for Wheels day.

The odds must be pretty good for that one. I hope Bry has remembered to build a big trophy shelf as I'm sure he will get one or two next year :D
