We Hear You - Initial timing

A few months back in our April issue, we asked readers what they wanted to see. We got a tremendous amount of responses, and I thank all of you for that.

It seems like the most common request is for more features of "street" cars. As much as people love to see the $50K crazy builds by shops and companies, they still want to see cars they can relate to more. It's understandable that your average Joe privateer can't be building a $50K car, and most of us are hobbyists who play with the same car we drive everyday. So we do plan to feature more street-style cars, lower budget more realistic builds that our readers can still look up to but may be just out of reach for them.

And, no, we don't plan on taking out the crazy $50K or even $100K builds from shops and manufacturers. Those cars will still be in the magazine and on our covers. We just don't feel like it would be worth your while to spend the money on our magazine if you didn't get such crazy over-the-top builds that are almost unimaginable. What we will be doing is mixing both the wild projects as well as the simple and clean ones, like this month's S2000.

Adding to the request of more street cars, we got a decent amount of requests for cars that aren't too common. You guys seem to want to see out-of-the-box builds, features of cars that you wouldn't normally see at a car show. Feel free to holler at me with your feedback and inquires anytime, and I'll do my best to respond.
