I have a copy from last year and it's no wonder there are so many sbc powered rods, most of the ads only have sbc parts in them.

They did have year-long build articles on a Y-Block and a 390 a few years ago. The flathead also, but that was before I picked up the mag.

In all fairness, it's not really Street Rodders' fault you see so many Chevy ads. It's really the advertisers, of course. There have been editorials in there form some of the editors talking about the lack of alternative (read: non chevy) eninges in rods. I think Street Rodder did a wonderful job doing the year long series on the flathead, the Y-block and the FE series engines. They have also done other series on non Ford, but very cool retro motors, like the Buick Nailhead and the big early 60's Caddy motors. I think they also did a series on the late 50's Hemi's. Okay, so not all Ford motors, but hell, it's better than another build up of a SBC.

I'm thinking of subscribing. It's a good taste of something different.

Have you seen the publications from Buckaroo Communications? They have lot's of fabrication articles and DIY resto articles from plastics to stainless. It's you're typical chebby crap but the fabrication is the same no matter whose mill your running.

Still have the first 7 or 8 issues of Street Rodder, Rod Action and a relatively unknown mag called Street Rod. It published out of Oregon and couldn't get any West Coast advertisers-folded. All in mint cond. Thinking of putting them on the "bay"! The cover shot on the first issue was a chopped 34 with you guessed it... a 327 Chev.
