okay maybe it’s not like a blockbuster movie or a New York Time’s bestseller or even getting on Oprah’s book club list…..but considering the fact that I have NOT made a new issue in about 4 months it seems like a big deal to me.
check out http://openzine.com/americanmusclecar if you’re into the Chevrolet Chevelle from the 1960′s and early 70′s. It is issue number 7 now and I have a total page view count of over 17,000 for all issues when you total them up. It seems low to me but when you check out the other e-zines it actually seems pretty good for a total. So I guess it is successful. Anyway, the whole point is to bring these cars into the public eye more and to maybe give a little basic information to promote these legendary vehicles to a new generation. As I have said before, I don’t deal with production stats and all the technical crap because the “zine” is an introduction to them not the “bible” for those pros out there.
The next issue will deal with who knows? There are a lot of fringe cars out there but to be honest there are 4 or 5 more really popular models to delve into also. Whether you are a Blue Oval ( Ford ) fan, or a Bowtie ( Chevrolet ) fan or into the Pentastar or the Goat, Tiger, Poncho, Rocket V8, or the dozens of other nicknames out there, every Muscle Car made had it’s fans and loyalists. So whatever I come up with, hopefully someone will think it is the right choice.
Till then, Peace out people……
