I received my Feb. ’11 issue in December 2010 (go figure). I know you guys like living in the future.
In reference to your best 40 readers’ rides (Mild to Wild), you can do better. On page 24 and 25 there are 8 Heeps, page 26 has 4 Chevys, page 27 has 4 Fords, page 28 has 4 Dodges, and pages 30 and 31 have 8 Toyotas. There is some miscellaneous stuff, but not one Suzuki. I know plenty of Samurais and Trackers that would fare better (wild to mild). How about leaving out a few Heeps and Yotas and including some other outstanding rides? It’s really not the best readers’ rides you printed. I know of plenty of wild 4x4s that should be included. Next time talk to me first before you go to print.

Here’s a thought: Why didn’t you submit your ride in the first place? If you and your killer Suzuki buddies don’t send anything in, we can’t run them! Better yet, send ’em in and we’ll give you a full page of awesome Samurai for next year’s readers’ rides issue. Oh, and if they are a scan of a Polaroid printed on crappy paper that you shoved in an envelope, we can’t use that either. Good-quality prints or digital photos of the proper size and quality are what we need (see details in each month’s Readers’ Rides department). Also, no photos of you and your dog on the front lawn. Read the rules, submit a great photo to the proper address, include the required information, and just maybe we’ll use your photo. Remember we might have to rename the story Best 40 Readers’ Rides That We Received From People Who Have a Clue of What to Send In.
