MES­SAGE FROM THE EDI­TOR

Liv­ing the Life and Print­ing the Pas­sion

Street Trucks - - CONTENTS - BY CHRIS HAMIL­TON

EIGHT DAYS UN­TIL DEAD­LINE AND FIVE DAYS ‘TILL SEMA. That’s where my mind is at while writ­ing this piece. On pa­per, the de­tailed path to ed­i­to­rial dead­lines are neatly or­ga­nized and eas­ily as­sem­bled. How­ever, in­side the head of the edi­tor in charge of mak­ing sure those dead­lines hit can be quite the op­po­site. Bad weather, mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion and just straight up pro­cras­ti­na­tion tend to make dead­lines tight near the end, but with a great team and con­stant de­ter­mi­na­tion we never fail.

Fill­ing up this is­sue made for some re­ally great times and some very ex­cit­ing con­tent. Through­out the fol­low­ing pages you can check out some in­ter­est­ing con­tent, in­clud­ing our meet and greet with the stars new­est of “Speed is the New Black.” A Ford and a Chevy that are built to drive and beau­ti­ful to look at. Mov­ing on we bring you a few other well-built week­end rides from all over the coun­try, span­ning decades with some of our in­dus­try’s great­est trucks. Tre5 Cus­toms is back with some killer tech for a K5 Blazer, and we slap a Procharger in a lifted 5.3-L Sil­ver­ado to get some much-needed power.

Show cov­er­age in this is­sue in­cludes Slam­ily Re­union and Sev­ered in the Mid­west so sit back and re­lax. We love check­ing out th­ese events and we know you do, too, so we added an ex­tended list to our events page in the back of this is­sue as well. Be sure to stay with us on­line so you can see a lot of the be­hind-the-scene ac­tion while mak­ing th­ese is­sues and check out our web­site for ad­di­tional con­tent from photo shoots and tech in­stalls. As al­ways, we ap­pre­ci­ate the sup­port and look­ing for­ward to see­ing you out there!
