Maybe some don't care, but I've been a reader since Junior high school some time in the early to mid eighties. I've been a Corvette enthusiast since almost my first walking days. It's been a part of my automotive world for a long time. I read the digital edition. It ended with March. It just hit me why I've been getting the latest issues of Hot Rod. I never asked for the change but then my sub was probably from my old AOL account so they made the switch for me. I haz sad. Out of college they were the only car magazine to publish my artwork. Greatest $50 I ever got. And now they're no more. As soon as I saw Tom's post about support I immediately jumped at the Patreon link. This forum means much to me even though we've never met. Vette meant that much to me too. I can't lose you both. The gearhead world has given me so much. Thank you GRM.

And in case you were wondering here is the artwork.

I'm surprised it lasted this long. I read it for a long time and it seemed to repeat itself a lot.

Yes, I would agree. And some of the editing and editorial contact was weak at times. I'm a fan of the D. Randy Riggs era myself. But still it was the biggest Vette mag for a long time.
