Just wondered if anyone had received this issue yet? I understand it was supposed to be at the printers about December 29th.

Over the past two years I have seen many complaints about the vintage ford magazine not being available or on time. I wonder if the people who are doing it now have been doing it that entire time? It looks like I get over 300 hits on the vintage ford magazine on this forum. I'm sure some positive and some negative. A good hobby/club can't exist without volunteers doing a timely job. I'd love to volunteer; maybe when I get some T wheels to speak of I can make a chapter here in my own hometown and submit some photo's and articles to help those people out who struggle just to come up with the next edition.

What's it going to matter in a hundred years? It's only 'dates' folks . . lets wait and enjoy!! By the time it gets to Canada, most of the postage has been spent on storage.

I can understand Jack's concern. Over the past 40 years mine has been lost in the mail (never again to be seen ) about a dozen times or so. I think Jack was asking a simple question for crying out loud !---No I haven't received mine either.

I called today and asked about the issue. I was told that it was headed to the Post Office and the next issue will follow shortly.

The quality of Vintage Ford is so superior in all aspects to any other publication I receive That when it gets here is really of no moment to me. I think we should keep in mind that except for the printer everyone involved in the Magazine is doing volunteer work.

Ever try to go to a newsstand and buy anything comparable to the Vintage Ford? It does not exist. The wonderfulm people putting it out are all volunteers and doing a great job. Cut them some slack, There are times they need a life too away fromm all the pressure that is on them.

Since each issue tends to be a bit late, the interval between receipt of each issue is about the same. It's not like getting hot news, just great reading of a first class informational mag. If I were in a hurry I'd drive a Miata.

Edward and Dennis,

Where did you get the idea that the Vintage Ford is put together by volunteer work???

The only reason I like to know if someone else has the latest issue is so I know if mine got lost or not. I think it is a very valid question to ask and was about to ask myself but as always, I am a little slow :-) I would hate to miss an issue just because people might think I am complaining about it being late again. As long as it gets here its fine with me.

Despite the obvious time lag in arrival of the magazine, I've bought two vehicles from ads in the Vintage Ford. Apparently the ads are not as time-sensitive as we might think. As for the rest of the magazine, it's excellent.

Another high quality vintage car publication is "Beaded Wheels". New Zealand vintage car club mag, but sent all over the world:

That magazine has made it to selective Maryland locations, according to my recent survey. Those addresses that get their mail through the DC Bulk Mail Distribution Center normally have to wait a week longer.

I do a bulk maling through our local post office and I get the same mailing delivered 10 days later, after it has traveled about 8 miles to the sorting facility and is then sent back to where it originated.

I don't bother to subscribe any more. Vintage Ford was about the only value I got from joining the club and the quantity of old adds and repeat articles has caused me to give it up..... Maybe I'll re-join and try again sometime in the future.

It's been a quality magazine since I started in the MTFCA about 1990. However, I has evolved in a documentary about the rich members travelling all over the United States to rallys chronicalling their events that I really don't care about! Also, who cares about what speed parts are available to make "hotrods" out of Model T's? Bring back the old "tinkering tips" articles that new and regular members can relate to.
I might drop my MTFCA membership, as the magazine has been my main reason for joining.

I got mine TODAY!!

Found mine in the mailbox when I got home. Lateness doesn't bother me, kinda like the smell of the turkey roasting on Thanksgiving, you know it's there but you have to wait.

I thought Jack worded his question very well. He did not come across as complaining to me. There's a big difference between complaining about it being late and asking if others have received their's. I wondered about mine as well. I even asked my wife is maybe she forgot to renew my membership. If it's late, that's fine with me, so long as I know I will get it eventually. I expect Jack probably feels the same way. We just didn't know.

Thought the article on Steering gears to be quite interesting, and informative for someone who might be looking into restoring a car to original.
