    Got my copy of the 1st edition today. All I can say is that Jim did a wonerful job of putting it together. Great look, great cover, excellent articles, layout is quite good and quality of the paperstock is excellent. It is not the typical car magazine by far......

    Great job Jim......................

    Where/how/when do I get mine? I've seen the first issue, but not in 'bound' form.

    It is a very high quality magazine for driving enthusiasts being put out to the affluent market. It differs from the Robb Report or Dupont Registry in that it is all about Texas bases cars, boats or planes (anything fast) and is much more personal. The first edition has a nice article about Lamborghini of Dallas, a really interesting artice about Jim Hall and his Chaparral cars and museum and his racing history. It also highlights some local restaurant and jewelry store owners and their cars. There is an article about a yacht down in Florida but I do not know about boats so it did not interest me as much.

    It is really hard to describe. I would suggest you get ahold of Writerguy and question him as he is the Automotive Editor for it. He will probably be able to tell you how you can get a copy. It is worth getting. I have only had time to thumb through mine so I have only hit on some of the highlights.

    Hey Jim,

    Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. Things have been crazy in the last week. I finally did get a chance to go through the issue and you and Tim both deserve congratulations! Huge props(did I just say that) on the writing!

    Talk to you soon and I look forward to the next issue(are you dreading it yet?).

    I received mine yesterday, but I was on vacation all last week and don't know when it actually came. Great job!

    Funny too, I didn't expect to see my SRX7 in two pics for the MSR ad.

    I didn't get signed up for the first issue. However I know of many guys down here in Austin that would love to check it out as well. How might I obtain a few?

    I could pass them out at the Ferrari/Porsche breakfast this Saturday & to other meets over the next week if you have a stash you'd like to send. (I'll pay for shipping if need be)
