I'd thought about asking for one or two extra copies - how cool would it be for resale to get copies of the PCA magazine with your car on the cover? - but I probably ought to pay my PCA dues before requesting any favors. In fact, I was kind of surprised that the magazine showed up considering I'm in the annual two-week "still haven't gotten around to renewing my PCA membership" period...

Very nice! But, WOW! your region actually prints a copy of the news letter?? Here in the midwest all we get is a downloadable version on line! :cry: You West Coast guys get all the perks. Of course, you guys have a lot more P-cars out there than we do.

I tried to talk the local region into running Auto-X citing some other regions(yours) who seem to do them once per month. The response was "nobody seems to be interested in do that around here..." Other than HPDE(2) and Club Races(2) they seem content to have breakfast, dinner and an occasional Fun Run to some place for lunch or dinner...

This season I'm going to go to a couple of AutoX deals that the local Austin Healey club holds monthly. They let any car run! That will mean with my new Type R as the P-car will spend the summer in Georgia(Hell Yeah!)

Yeah, although the magazine has been getting thinner and thinner. Contributing some additional writing has been on my to-do list, but it hasn't made it to the top yet.
