    Gary, the USPS Regional sort centers are the problem. Some treat media mail differently than others. Each has five days to process that mail and some just take their good ole time using all five days. Based on your location, you should have TW by now. Sorry Albany is so slow.

      Classy!!!!
      American iron, real old school
      With two tone paint, it sure is cool

      Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
      With an overdrive that just won't stall

      With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
      With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

      Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
      The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

      Tried to sell her, but got no taker
      I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker

        Got my issue yesterday and unwrapped it this morning. FANTASTIC job! My graphic designer son and I pored over it and noted all the improvements - all color, upgraded paper stock, perfect-bound spine... this list goes on.

        Kudos to Ann and the rest of the Board for upgrading our already awesome publication!

                      This is ridiculous: I live in the middle of Nebraska, which is right next to the middle of nowhere, and I got my January issue on Wednesday, December 20th. Must be something to do with Interstate 80 being the Main Street of America. I do see USPS, Fed-Ex, UPS, and other delivery service trucks on I-80 frequently.

                      I was in the pit area of the Pure Stock Drags minding my own business, when the photographer came up to me and offered the photo which is on the January cover of TW. I have many photos of the Wrapper, but this one looked really good: Sharp, clear, dramatic, so I dug up the requested $20 and bought it. Putting it on the cover was not my idea, but I really appreciate Bob and Ann thinking it was the right cover photo for the Pure Stock Drags article. Thanks, guys.

                      BTW, on the shootout run when the blower-to-pressure box hose burst, the noise was so loud, people in the stands heard it. Not knowing what was wrong, Ted let off, but judging from the 60' and 330' times on that run, the Wrapper may have posted a time in the mid-12s if the hose had held. Ted always drives the car a little harder in the shootouts, so you can't judge how fast it is from the previous runs.

                      Finally, notice the car leaning toward the left, under torque from the engine as Ted did a burnout. And while the sign behind and above the Wrapper is not easy to read, if you could see the whole thing, you would read "More Power". Appropriate for the drags!
