Instead of starting a new thread for different issues, I think I'll just keep this one running.
But first off, please let me know if this is inappropriate in any way, going on about OMC on this site. I realize this site has something of a club component, although I figure most people see it as a forum with some nice extras. Anyway, let me know.
I just finished the October issue. It was a lot more work than I planned but I like how it came out. The Bonneville 2.0 story is in it, and there is a new team bringing a GT to a LeMons race and they submitted a short story and will follow that up after their first race. (Neither of those guys have raced before, ever.) Roger Wilson tells a tale of SCCA licensing, I've got something in there about the "Baby Corvette" article from Corvette Magazine, and more.
The part I am most proud of is the story of the Allson-powered Opel GT. After meeting Chris Franson at the Tacoma meet last summer and him sending me photos and his story, I started digging and found people who knew the car's builder, Mark Speicher. One of those was his son John, who lives about an hour away from me. I also spoke to John and to friends of Mark's and got the story of the car and the builder. This is what I like most about editing the Blitz, having the motivation to track down and get the Opel story that for the most part are vague Internet myths and rumors.
Anyway, for those of you that get the Blitz, let me know what you think. The print issue is in the mail now and the PDF should already be in your inbox.
The next issue, about 1/2 done at this point, reviews and analyzes OMC's history in areas related to proposed amendments to the by-laws, including the finances and membership over the years, the history of membership dues and the cost breakdown, a rough budget, the cost of producing the Blitz, and a few extras, including, hopefully, another tale from Roger Wilson. For this issue I have been digging through 34 years of back issues. Very interesting, and tedious, but I think the result in terms of articles that really give us the status of OMC, past and present, has been worth it.
