    All in the family! As you guys know we have been a part of the Motorsport Network for about 5 years now, and Motorsport has been intentionally growing what they consider to be their 'lifestyle' brands. We are among those brands as well as Canossa, Cavallino, and Amalgam Collection. duPont is their latest addition, and so now we have a new sibiling! lol

    I remember as a kid, I would beg my mom to buy me the magazines simply because they had the coolest cars on the cover, although I obviously didn't know it was primarily for selling cars. I just wanted to see the pictures! I'm fond of duPont even though I haven't bought or sold with them. Will be interesting to see how our relationship develops with them:)

    Have any of you guys bought or sold through duPont?

    I used to call on DuPont when I was in the printing business. Hopefully you got the Moke.

    I haven’t read the magazine in years. Its approach just didn’t appeal to me. Maybe it’s changed, I don’t know.

    DuPont is a staple purchase for me when I fly, which is seldom. Something to thumb through on the plane

    1985 with 288 GTO posters on my bedroom wall and obsessing over baseball cards and cross referencing DuPont to earmark potential deals. I was10 and my business sense was way more dialed.

    Same here. It's like a tradition for me.

    sorry, off topic, but I just noticed you're 'Joined:' date being relatively/fairly recent along with comparatively low message count.
    Just curious, :) how did you become a 'Global' Moderator (above regular Moderator?) so soon? (no idea if it is/was even soon o_O )
    'Professional' full time position as opposed part-time volunteers?

    I had years of DuPont Registry magazines stored in boxes in my basement, 1994 -2001 that my wife told me to find somewhere else for them.

    Offered them at no cost to anyone here on F-chat (pick-up only)

    No one responded. :(

    I'm sure they are in some compost somewhere.

    I’m a paid employee, modding is not my primary role. I am technically an admin, right under the owner/founder Rob. I’m a global mod only in the sense that I require all access and privileges, so to cover my bases and make sure I can see everything and interact with the entire mod team on their level, I have the same title(s)
