From The Staff
After 30 years of doing this you'd think we'd have everything running on remote control. Push a few buttons, tickle the computer some and presto, change-o, the magazine magically appears and with a flick of the magic wand, is sent to your mailbox (or newsstand), leaving us to pack up a vehicle and head for one car show or another for a weekend of leisure. Not! The scenario goes more like, the magazine goes out and bam! We're into post production, aka paperwork. As the days get longer and the pace quickens, we must take care of chores before we can play. For us, shooting photos and talking to gear heads at a rod run is play time. Which leads us to the most often-asked question from subscribers, and that is, "how do we get our car in the magazine?" The answer is simple, "you simply have to ask".
By that we mean, when you see us, or one of our CruZin' contributors (we're generally dressed in CruZin' magazine formal wear - read that t-shirt and jeans) -just tell them that "CruZin' Dave" said he'd like to have a photo of your car.
Back to this 2018 car show/rod run season, currently underway across the nation and, especially in the Northwest. We had a great day at the Early Bird Swap in Puyallup and then spent three days in Portland enjoying and "working" the Multnomah Hot Rod Council's 62nd presentation of the Portland Roadster Show. In a word, FABULOUS! Duane Caseday and Dave Jothen and their supporting cast get straight A's in all "departments". Now we're winding down this April 2018 issue, it'll go in the mail in a few days and with any luck we'll do a little cruising ourselves next weekend. Looking further down the road there are a lot of places we'd like to be, we just have to pare things to what we can do (sound familiar?). Definitely on the list is the Seattle Swap Meet at Monroe, WA. Remember, it's your turn to bring food!
Stay Low in the turns and Keep CruZin'
