Good Ol' Days
Dear Mr. Ward,
In the '80s, Truckin magazine was the leader in showing the public new trends, like Boyd Coddington and the billet wheel movement. You also showed us the first lowered Silverado, lowered dualie, and the first lowered S-10. Well the new Colorado just came out, and how about a test drive and show us how to lay rail with it. Plus, a new Ford Ranger test, if it becomes available state side. I just want to help you return to your roots and see success for Truckin magazine again.
John, thanks for your story suggestions, though you may have been misinformed about the “new” Colorado, as there is nothing new about it. A huge disappointment since its introduction in 2004, Chevy is now planning on killing the truck after the 2012 model year and bringing the global market Colorado to the U.S. as a 2014 model. Once that truck is here, we'll be sure to put it through its paces. Thanks for reading. -Ed.
We're Not Truckin's List
Hi. I'm trying to sell my sweat 1981 custom fullsize 2WD Blazer. Would like some advise on what I should ask as far as price.
Scott, we're hoping you meant to say sweet Blazer, and not a sweaty one, as those aren't nearly as valuable. Being that you didn't send us any pics or a link to your Blazer, it's hard for us to give you a random value. Your definition of sweet may be different than the prospective buyers definition. A good friend of ours just picked up a nice '85 Jimmy 4WD for $2,500, so start with a reasonably high starting price and be prepared for tough negotiations.
I was wondering what all consists of having renderings featured on the site? I am 16 years old, and have been doing 3-D frame designs for about a year. I would like to get my designs out there for more people to see, but I don't know where to start. I love Truckin, and would love to have some of my work on the site.
Tom, thanks for checking out www.truckinweb.com. Good news, we accept all types of renderings, and it's easy to get published. Send your samples to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Locating a Good Shop
Do you guys know of any good custom interior shops in the Maryland, Delaware, or Pennsylvania area. I have been searching but cannot find any. Any help would be appreciated.
Good News Ian, check out The Trim Shop (http://www.thetrimshop.net/), located in Newark, Delaware, as they do all types of leather interiors. Best part, they're only 30 minutes from you.
When are y'all going to do an issue dedicated to Dodge Rams? Just throwing it out there. All I ever see is Chevys in every issue.
Anthony, just like you, we like a variety of trucks, but we can't run trucks that people aren't building. In fact, in this issue we have two articles featuring Mopar trucks or SUVs and four articles featuring Blue Ovals. If you know of any killer Rams, give us a shout at email@example.com.
Just received Issue 3. Every truck in there is sick, especially the Chevy roadster and the Nissan Titan. Thanks for the amazing magazine!
John, thank you for that. We work hard to bring our readers the best of the best. It makes it all worthwhile to receive comments like this.
