A Decade And Counting - Editorialisms

Modified quickly grew and charged its way to becoming a legitimate and recognizable tuner mag.

Peter Tarach
Nov 17, 2010

Ten years - we've made it 10 long years. What started off as a small Canadian magazine that challenged the big books of the era, has secured its position in the print world as one of the top tuner magazines on the market. I still remember the day when I attended my first drag racing event at Atco Raceway in New Jersey and a certain photographer (I won't mention any names) said, "You guys won't make it in this biz, the other magazines are too big." Rob Laidlaw, who started Modified Magazine, didn't think so, and with him and a great team of people, Modified quickly grew and charged its way to becoming a legitimate and recognizable tuner mag. It's silly to say that the people behind the scenes can take most of the credit because if it wasn't for you, our readers, we wouldn't be where we are today.

That's why for a third year in a row we're once again asking for submissions for our Readers' Rides issue to give back to all of you by offering the chance to have your car featured in Modified. No matter what car you own, whether it's a beat-up drift machine, a pristine show car or a track rat, we'll consider them all. There's just one catch: you have to carefully follow the instructions below when submitting your car. If you don't, the chances of us emailing you to get the proper info are slim to none. Last year, we got too many submissions that had small, low-rez photos or no information about the car attached and we had to pass on them. So don't be that same someone. Follow the instructions - we aren't asking for much. Grab that camera, snap some pics, jot down your car's story and specs, and in a couple of months you could see your car grace these pages!

Readers' Rides Submission Instructions
1. Take photos of your car in HIGH RESOLUTION format (at least 1mb in size, 300 dpi). Have some pride in your ride - the nicer the photo, the better.
2. Include a spec sheet of all the modifications done to your car in the following format:
Car (year and model)
Engine Mods
Wheels, Brakes & Suspension Mods
Exterior Mods
Interior Mods
Power Output (leave it blank if you don't know)
3. Include a brief history of your car and why you chose it/drive it. You can add any details here that you think don't fit into the spec sheet.
4. Your full name and contact info.
5. Send your submissions to peter@modified.com.
