  1. Cutlasguy, I like what you did. My reluctance to mounting the badge on my grille is twofold. One, the fragile nature of the thin plastic horizontal slates (they fracture way too easily) and two, anything up against the slats eventually removes the painted finish. You've given me an idea though for a standoff type of mount fed through the slats but not against the grille.
  2. Thanks to both of you. See you at Hershey.
  3. While I believe this mounting is acceptable for judging, can I get a confirmation from those more knowledgeable ? Thank you !
  4. That's very true. I do wonder though why newspapers and other print/online publications don't appear to be as vulnerable then. All require secure sign in's, as does AACA.
  5. In a nutshell Bob, I was told by HQ that the current issue of the magazine is never made available online until the "next" print issue is published. So, you can't read the current issue online. That's it. Gary
  6. I understand your comment, but non members cannot, as far as I have been able to determine, access the digital version. You have to sign in as a member to get to the link. So is it not already secure ?
  7. I respectfully pose the following question to those in positions of leadership at AACA. My apologies if it may have been answered in the past, but I was not able to find anything relevant. It is my understanding that the current print issue of Antique Automobile had some delays at the printer/publisher. Since it is now approximately 3 weeks since it's normal arrival date, I presume the cause of the delay was not trivial. None the less, I anxiously await its arrival, as I do for every issue. My question pertains to the digital issue. I am aware that the online digital issue is always "one issue prior" to the current, print issue. Quite honestly, I am a bit perplexed by this. All of the print/digital subscriptions that I have, automotive related and otherwise, make their current digital issue available when the print issue is released. Why is this not the procedure for Antique Automobile ? If it is due to lengthy processing times to prepare a digital version, I could understand, but in today's printing world, digital is normally the source for the final printed version, so in theory, it should be available at the same time the print issue receives final approval for mailing. If it, on the other hand, is AACA policy not to have the current issue available for members online , again, I respectfully have to ask, why ? If access to the digital version is only available to members, not the general public (at least as far as I can determine), "unauthorized access" can't be the reason. With the current state of USPS delays in mail delivery, it would seem only logical to provide access to the current, digital version to members when the printed version is released. If it takes time to prepare the digital version, could it not at least be made available at sometime during the 2 month span between printed issues ? Thank you for the opportunity to present my concern. I look forward to your reply. Gary
