Heh, you're on a roll lately! Noticed you were the go-to 'P71 consultant' for that recent GRM article

I made 3 GRM's in a row, actually. The 944 was the Reader's Ride, then the Go-Kart was the Pit Bike the following month, then the P71 "consultant" bit. Mrs. Javelin has been ribbing me like crazy! "They must not have much to write about if they need you every month!" Ha!

It is really, really cool to see the Javelin in there, though. I have to go buy about a dozen copies to send my Dad and Gramps and all my buddies!

I'll try and scan it in tonight.

Thanks everybody! I'm kind of shocked it got picked, looking at the caliber of the other projects, but I'm sure being an AMC helped.

I look forward to seeing that issue of Hot Rod.

It's Popular Hot Rodding (PHR), the one that covers Pro-Touring and drag racing muscle cars, not Hot Rod. September 2012 issue, says "Reader's Projects" on the cover with a 65 Mustang and a Charger/Cuda mashup.
