Picked up the free sample edition of this new mag at the Classic Car show in November, looked really interesting so I sent off my subscription fee of 15 for 6 issues and.............nothing!!! E-mail not answered, phone no. is a mobile which goes to message and the website features are not working. Not looking good eh??!

Anyone cast anymore light on this?

The mag was run by a guy that emmigrated 2 months ago to California.

Someone knows the owner quite well, ZX Spectrum was his name.

Ive spoken to the guy before and hes a genuine fella. Has the cheque been cashed?

Thanks Gaz, no the cheque hadn't been cashed, but I've now cancelled it anyhow just to be on the safe side as I can always send another should it pan out for the better.

Can't understand what going on though because as far as I was aware the magazine was a new one yet to be published....the plot thickens!!

I talked to the guy about three months ago
there was some problem with W.H. Smiths refusing to distribute the mag
He then got offered a job in sunny warm California

I wonder what made him take the job :D

anyway I think its dead and buried for now
I don,t know if zx is still on this forum as he has bought a Datsun
(sorry ) :D a Nissan 200sx

Hi folks.
Got a message about this thread from ZX so I thought I'd better clear the air for all.

Unfortunately the magazine is on hold indefinetely due to WHSmith refusing to distribute it at this time (too many new car magazines apparently).

Understandably we are all dissapointed and are looking at different ways to carry on. I am on a work contract in California so it is hard for me to keep on top of things from here.

All cheques for subscription that were sent are being returned and any new ones from October onwards have not and will not be cashed. There are only 9 people still waiting for their refunds at this stage. I have returned emails to all people that are still waiting that have email access.

My phone number has changed due to being is USA to +1 310 658-0234 for anyone desperate to speak to me :)

Sorry folks, you will have to stick with "Japanese-Advert-Performance" and "Ban-Max-Zai" for the time being.

Take care and have a great xmas and happy new year!!

Just a quick check to see if anyone is still without their refund?

The last few were all posted back in February and I'm pretty sure they've all been cashed but just in case.....

Apologies on the website still being total @rse, I cannot access the ftp thru a different ISP and being in USA makes that pretty difficult.

Thanks all.
