The Times They Are A-Changin' And We're Movin' On
This is our official announcement that Cru- Zin' Magazine is on the market for sale. We've retained a highly regarded publications broker who will handle the details. If you have an interest contact David Gauger at Gauger Media Service, Inc., 360.942.3560.
We are open to offers, trades and interesting ideas. After more than three decades of publishing we look forward to enjoying the leisure side of the hobby we dearly love.
Transition to the recent, the here and the now. Recently we set up the CruZin' booth at the fabulous Portland Roadster show. More than 500 vehicles under lights, it is truly a must-see extravaganza. Our outstanding photojournalist Annette Barton will bring you coverage of the PRS in an upcoming issue.
Speaking of Annette, who also authors the 1320 drag racing column, she brings us this "LATE BREAKING NEWS ITEM" "I just received word that the Snake River Dragway in Gooding, Idaho will not be allowed to open this year by order of the FAA. The huge event, Memphis Street Outlaws with JJ da Boss, will be held at Sage Raceway, May17-18 instead of at Gooding. In any event, JJ da Boss and his Arm Drop race are huge across the country right now and will bring big crowds to Sage."
For those of you that read CruZin' backwards you probably already noticed we, for reasons of space, had to drop the CruZin' Club Directory this issue. Not to worry, updates will be posted on our website www.cruzinmag.com soon.
Continuing our journey backwards we find the CruZin' Classified ads. As a subscriber you're entitled to three lines free. The classfied ads are a great resource for finding/selling those elusive parts, pieces and projects.
Next stop on our reverse travel is to check out the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame. Marv Nielsen and Helen Meadows, along with their corps of volunteers, do an incredible job of planning and presenting the HOF event, and there could not be a more worthy cause. Just check out the smiling faces of the scholarship recipients pictured herein.
Now we'll turn around and go through the event coverage. First up is the La Grande Ronde- A-View, a great show and a gorgeous location. Must also mention the Goodguys NW Nationals at the Puyallup fairgrounds. More than 3000 vehicles, in motion, cruising the fairground. It's downright intoxicating.
This is all just an overview of what's going on in the car show world. This issue of CruZin', like every issue, contains more than 300 color photos from throughout the Northwest. And don't forget our resident TECH Notes guru John Novak. He's a great source of mostly useless information. lol
