Just opened my May 2004 copy of Street machine mag, and who is in there? The bloody rod rider. Even got a pic of 'im, and I quote "Boris makes a Clark Kent style transformation on the weekends into a rod and custom fanatic". They even call him talented?
Congrats Boris, good article in there too on the Sydney Car Festival

Go check it out. You might be pleasantly suprised with this issue. Nice EH with polished Americans, coverage on the Goodguys Nostalgia drags, a super cool Buick from NZ and even a little bit of salt stuff. Next issue has the full coverage.

Except they done a big magazine NO-NO and put a black car on the cover, looks a bit bland to me, and doesnt attract attention to itself amongst all the other mags on the shelf.

Ok, how many copies do you have then? And I bet you had to buy a new packet of crayons to sign them all.

Yeah maybe... but everyone loves a rear 3/4 of a Falcon coupe, especially if it's got big ass rubber on the back.

Nah. Mum lets me use a pen now... but not one of them fancy flickerator ones, just the plain ones with the plastic cap. She's worried I'll get an ink stain on my new shirt.

Oh... a couple...

Don't worry, I'm sure it'll show up in a magazine somewhere!

Yep, but I've got a few other stories to do beforehand. Don't ask me when it'll show up on the newstands though...
