Exciting things are happening at Burger King, er, R&C, people, exciting things! And I’m not just talking about the monthly magazine, either. No siree.

As many of you are/were well aware of, our second annual Little Pages hit the ’stands late April/early May. (As was the case with our first edition, it’s newsstand-only ... no subscriptions are available for special-interest publications.) I think it’s safe to say, the entire staff of R&C is really pleased with the outcome, and we hope everyone who buys it shares those sentiments. It’s not often we get such free reign content-wise as we do (well, “did”) with Little Pages. But as much fun as it was to produce, it did have its drawbacks, namely due simply to what the title itself suggests: “little” pages.

I’m a fan of great photography as much as I am of great reading material, but neither translate well in such a small-format magazine. (I compromised by alleviating one—the words—to help offset the other so as not to be relegated to running postage stamp–sized photos in a couple features.)

Ultimately, it’s looking like Little Pages’ run will be short-lived, so grab a copy or 10 while you can before they’re all gone. That said, we may not produce a “mini” mag the following year, but we do have something very interesting in store, which brings me to our next exciting thing: R&C’s 60th anniversary.

That’s right, Rod & Custom’s turning the big six-oh in 2013 ... diamond anniversary time (granted, we did take a few years hiatus some time ago!). In celebration of this milestone event, we’ve got some special things in store—one printed, the other an actual “to do”!

First off, in the likely absence of Little Pages (it’s not 100 percent certain at this point, but very plausible), we’re gearing up to put together a special 60th anniversary issue—bigger format, fancy paper, all that jazz—in addition to the monthly version (call it Big Pages for now). As more details develop, I’ll surely let everyone know what’s in store, literally.

Finally, that “to do” I alluded to. Well, let’s just say that you may want to mark your calendars for January 2013 ... around the time of the Grand National Roadster Show. Why? If everything pans out, we might just be having a not-so-little exhibit commemorating the 60th at the NHRA’s Wally Parks Museum, that’s why! Nothing is written in stone at the moment, but, as we get closer to January and the details develop, I’ll let you know. In the meantime, enjoy your September issue.
