Got mine yesterday, read it last night and this morning and you haven't even got yours yet!!! Nanner, nanner, nanner!!!!!!!!!!!! (as the girls next door would say)

It's a good one, has more about Glover Ruckstell and a bunch of other good stuff.

Seems to me that mags must be in a little informal competition to see which one can get better faster, the VF or MTTimes. They are both full of color now and lots of good info. I look forward to both of them every month and feel bad for the guys who don't belong to the clubs and get the magazines.

I took the Horseless Carriage club up on their offer of 3 years for $135 awhile back but haven't got the first copy of that one yet. I've cut down to where these are just about all the mags I get. Farm Collector, VF, MTT, Car and Driver and that's it. I used to get Hemmings, Cars and Parts, Special Interest Autos, Old truck and Car Collector. I couldn't get them all read and had stacks of stuff laying around all over that I was going to read "someday." I wasn't interested in most of the stuff they had in those, either. Some of them were 40-50 bucks a year, too.

Got all I can do to keep up with all the emails and internet stuff, four web sites and all that junk, let alone read magazines. Times change.

Nanner,nanner, nanner! you wouldn't be trying to start something now would you Stan?

If you got your Vintage Ford then mine should get here by the spring thaw.

I have received your book and I am enjoying it. The mule is back in the barn and I hope the pigeon was tasty.

I find Hemmings Classic Car an enjoyable read, and Collectable Automobile. Collectable Auto is more of a "Architectural Digest" publication - glossy and outstanding photography, but generally good stories.

Well, Denny, with a copy of Herman & Freida to read, a ton of coal for heat and a five gallon can of coal oil for light, you should be set for the winter.

I got a letter today addressed to Herman & Freida and I thought I might have sold a book but it was somebody wanting a free copy for a door prize.

I think the VF is great. The HMN ads are still useful, but their editorial focus is so heavily on the sixties and later that it's of little interest to me. On the other hand, AACA's Antique Automobile has become one of the best magazines available.

The VF is like a novel. I have a signed copy of the Book "Sing Me Back Home", it is the life story of our local Merle Haggard, country siger of fame. His book was the kind you could not put down. Great reading if you can find it. I read nearly every word including the for sale ads and wanted ads, it is alway interesting.

When I saw this I figured mine would show up in a day or two, but Wednesday the 23d has come and gone and still no VF. Anybody else still waiting? I don't want to miss one of my favorite publications.

Bill & John, I got mine yesterday. Troy is not that far from either of you.

I suspect that the post office has priorities. I got mine at least a week ago and have already read it. This is a very well done issue. Keep up the good work.

Got mine day before yesterday. Informative and quality publication.
I have also purchased the CD set. Wish now I would have joined when I was a teenager in the SF Valley during the 60s.
