    If you check out the newest edition of Road & Track magazine (Feb/04), they printed my letter on the Lotus!

    It's always a nice feeling!

    Congrats!! I'll pick up a copy.

    I had a muscle car I restored featured in a Chevy magazine a few years back. You couldn't get the smile off my face for a month. So I know the joy you're experiencing. Very exciting.

    I realize you're kidding, but thought you might be interested in knowing that Minority Report was based on a 1954 short story by Philip K. Dick entitled The Minority Report. Dick's novels and short stories have been the basis of MANY sci-fi films, including:

    Screamers, adaptation of Second Variety(1953)

    The Truman Show, loosely based on Time Out Of Joint(1959)

    A.I., based on Martian Time Slip(1964)

    Total Recall, adaptation of We Can Remember It For You Wholesale(1966)

    Blade Runner, adaptation of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?(1968)

    The P book is real but I don't really think my little story was ripped off. Thanks.

    Congrats I will look for it myself. I know the feeling when one of my letters was printed in a Motocross Magazine back in 2000

    Had my 69 Roadrunner in Hot Rod. Only a small picture, with a few words but I was happy.

    About 15 years ago, I won a Surfer Magazine "Find the picture from any Surfer Magazine, ever - that most closely resembles *this* shot" Contest. It was the only one that was even close. My *found* tiny pic of Herbie Fletcher at Trestles was closest thing to the Archangel Michael surfing on the Sistine Chapel's ceiling.
