Overview - Initial Timing

May 1, 2002

We're already into our fifth issue of the year, practically halfway through 2002 in no time at all. In fact, at the time of writing this we've only been to one show-the only one to take place so far-and the drag racing season hasn't even gotten underway. This publishing gig is a mad and frantic one. Nevertheless, we've made this our "Auto Salon Issue"-even more a must-have than your girlfriend. Besides, if kept in a dry, light-tight area when not in use, your 37th issue of 2NR will last a whole lot longer than her anyway.

So why do we call it the "Auto Salon Issue"? Well, it is just that. It's the issue that hits the newsstand right around the same time as the IAS, the largest compact-car trade show of the year. It's not that it's any different from other issues. We just use key events such as the IAS and SEMA shows as road signs throughout the year.

While aftermarket manufacturers are busy unveiling new products for the year, we are unleashing our latest issue at the show just a tad before it hits the stands. And as always, or maybe just a little more so this time, we've put together an issue that's gonna make you spend the next several hours drooling like you came in on a special bus. We searched high and low for the lovely Hannah, who graces this month's cover, and even took several blows from foes to bring you a first look at the wild Wing's West RSX.

Those of you who wonder how and when this import drag racing thing got so damn big will find our 10-year recap very interesting, while the few that have been there all along, will, as we did, find it very funny. It's amazing just how far things have come in such a short time. Not to mention how we got there.

All in all, it's a jam-packed issue that we're sure you'll enjoy. So get stuck in and remember: Things are just heating up.Edward EngJason MulroneyGary Castillo
