It’s been said that in order to properly move forward, one must look back, and in a late-night strike of luck (while planning for the issue) we realized that this installment, big number 21, marks a great achievement in PC magazine history. While not quite on-par with launching a space shuttle or saving a kitten trapped in a tree, we are however, proud to announce our five-year anniversary.
Somehow, someway, through the blood, the sweat and the tears we managed to make the half-decade mark. It’s been one roller coaster of a ride, as at times, we weren’t even sure there’d be another issue. And yet, we stuck it out like we always have, and in the process built over 33 cars and made many friends along the way.
What started as a crazy idea to build a magazine for gearheads, by gearheads, actually came to fruition in the Winter of 2007. Throughout the years we’ve seen many faces come and go, as each has left their mark. Now rolling through our 21st issue we still strive to uphold the very ideals that the founding issues were built upon, but continue to push the content to new heights.
For better and for worse we’re here to stay (so we hope), and thought it best to celebrate our momentous event by taking a trip down memory lane. So sit back, relax and read along as we highlight the many cars to have graced the pages of PC. And to make it all the easier we (as a staff) dedicated a special section to our Top 10 projects. But fear not, we’ve also devoted a few pages highlighting every project we’ve ever built. So with that, we hope you enjoy this inside look at PC magazine from the beginning until the present—it’s been one epic adventure. Thanks for reading along.
