Ah, the computer age! These ultramodern machines can work wonders, when they're working. As we were about to go to press with this issue, ours stopped working, leaving us with a few last minute details to iron out before we sent everything off to the printer. Luckily, with the gracious cooperation of the company we contract with to print the magazine, who gave us the use of their computers and graphics facilities, we were able to get this issue out to you. What a week it's been!!!

It's a good thing you can rely on your old, vintage machines, which are always in working order (right!) and never fail or give you trouble, isn't it? Of course we know that keeping these old engines running requires a mountain of work, lots of sweat and ingenuity, and that even after all that sometimes they still don't run right. At least you can smack them with a wrench without much harm wouldn't want to try that with my computer!

This month, the hectic pace of show season will begin to wind down, so it's back to the shop for a lot of you, to work out the bugs you discovered while running your engines throughout the summer. We hope you take time, before you get up to your elbows in penetrate, grease, and paint, and while the memories are still fresh, to write us the news about your shows and gatherings. A good show report can generate interest for next year's event, and helps to boost attendance and revenue.

'Till next month, we hope the Halloween goblins stay out of your workshop (and out of our computers)!
