    great site for a lot info guys, but have not spent enough time to fully digest if this site does /not have much to do with show-rat-custom rods or just race-stock- reg cars/trucks.? the shows are my future builds now and don't want to look for nothing kit wise if not here as a rule. tip's , show up-dates and the rest are all great and are always helpfull. also do u sell here or only swap/trade/free all. want to abide the rules. please be kind with response, already hate the big mag site for snobs. also appreciate the mag so far. only have 2 issues so far, only found #135 at thanksgiving by pure luck and the scetch pad section was truely a better section than found in any mag hobby or bigboy toys like rod/cust or pop hotrod. if mag keeps up i'll will subscribe.
