I made it into a magazine!!!!

Well, I just got some really cool news, I'm in the April/May 4 Wheel Parts Adventure magazine (page 64)!!!

OK, so it's mostly a glorified sales circular, but it still makes me giddy like a school-girl!!!

The back story is that our club hosted a ride with Rob Reaser (formerly of JP) last fall, and showed him some good old Southern Hospitality. When he was looking for a pic of a rig running an MSD, he picked mine. OK, so it's a start, but I'm hoping to get into doing some writing for someplace (web or print) in the future as a hobby too, kind of line Verne Simmons.

Good looking picture. I'm guessing you have a new winch or winch-cable judging from the little strappy-thing still on it

Re: I made it into a magazine!!!!

Very cool, I have the rag right here in front of me.
You will still remember all of us little people now that you have made the big time,...wont you?
Congrats.
Although I had to remove my MSD from my ignition system because a malfunction was frying my TFI modules. I havent had a chance to send it back in to MSD for warranty replacement.

Re: I made it into a magazine!!!!

The sad thing is that I haven't even seen the pic yet!!! Mine hasn't come yet, and went by the shop, they don't have them either!!!! Anybody got a scanner?

Sloop: It was new at that point, not any more :-)

H8: what are you talking about man!?!?! Heck, I'm just a squirrel trying to get a nut in your world man! :-)

Re: I made it into a magazine!!!!

i've got a scanner but then i wouldn't be able to figure out how to get it small enough to get it on this BBS. so there you have it.

it's a pic from the front, with you flexin on a trail with a white stock height looking yj behind you. the caption reads "herb goezes of lawrenceville, georgia, uses an msd ignition, coil and distributor to supply spark to his 1983 cj-7's amc 258. it is the edge he feels he needs to leave the yj in the dust"

Re: I made it into a magazine!!!!

When you have a name like Geozos, you kind of get used to it being butchered, it isn't the first, and I'm sure it won't be the last. [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Thanks BigHG for scanning!!!
