What's the best of Old Cars Weekly?

We’re preparing a special issue of Old Cars Weekly that will be sold only on newsstands, and I figured the publication’s readers are the best people to ask. So, I’m looking for feedback. What are the best stories to put in this special magazine-sized issue of Old Cars Weekly? To get you thinking, here’s a preliminary list of stories we’re planning for the issue:

Gregg D. Merksamer’s Pennsylvania Turnpike story
A drive in a Duesenberg
Autronic Eye repair story
Matt Ross’ coverage of the northwest’s Pig-n-Ford races
Unrestored 1941 Willys coupe feature
VW drive in California
Stories from the Highway Patrol
JFK hearse story…

and what else do you think?
Let me know!

    I have been a subscriber to Old Cars Weekly since the 1970’s. As you probably know Krause Publications used to put out a book about every 2 years called "The Best of Old Cars Weekly". I’m not sure but I think it included all of the articles, without the advertising, for that period of time. I thought it was great ! When I got married in 1981, my wife made me get rid of the 8 or 10 years worth of Old Cars Weekly’s I had stacked up in the closet at my parents house. It’s a lot easier keeping volumes of Best of Old Cars Weekly, that’s why I bought the 2 issues that I have. It’s fun to go back and re-read some of the articles. I love to see you bring that type of book back.

    Thanks for your time and keep up the good work.

      Chris Sass, I enjoy reading your articles, but was having trouble finding your email address. I like your interest in the 50’s studebakers, I own a 58 1/2 ton pickup everyday worktruck that has a power tommy lift installed on the rear of the truck. I must say that I read your Fiero for the long run article in Oct. 27 Old Cars. I never owed a fiero but always thought they were neat cars. I wanted to ask you if you were familiar with a Fiero Banchee. That may be misspelled. I had a friend of mine I worked with at the Denver Post years ago, who bought what he said was a prototype Fiere Banchee, I going to say this was in 1981 or so. His name was Earl Broderson and he was a Pontiac nut. He raced dragsters pontiac powered quater mile funny cars. He later moved to Phoenix Ariz, and I have lost track of him, but every time I see an article on Fiero’s I think of Earl.
      He even had a couple of pictures of him with Pontiac Corp. promoters of this car. any input on this car would be appreciated. thanks Marvin Honeycutt 610 Polk st. #202 San Francisco Ca. 94102 Ph 415 672 0821 email starvnmarvin@yahoo.com
