THE MAGAZINE ROOM The Good and the Bad This month we have Good and Bad news. First we will start with the good news; we finally got Trent VanArsdalens 2010 Chevrolet Camaro better known as Project STUNNER featured and on the cover on this month s issue. This also marks the return of John aka Chicken Jackson to Gauge Magazine. Chicken shot for us several years ago when was running around the show circuit rocking a Ford Thunderbird and had a lot less facial hair. John is most recently known for being one of the great photographers in the automotive industry, John is doing business as Not Stock Photography and traveling from Coast to Coast in his Corvair Van. You will start seeing his work from time to time in future issues. Make sure to check out his web site at www.notstockphotography.com We also have a few new additions to the Gauge staff as well. Nick Means has joined us and is responsible for this month s cover and for shooting the fabulous Gauge Girl Emily Rigg. I would also like to welcome shooters Gabe Gomez from Texas and Rick Paco Banda from Indiana to the Gauge Magazine staff. Now for the bad news, our long time West Coast photographer Cheri Delgodilla has chosen to move on to a new adventure and will no longer be working with us. We wish her all the luck and enjoyed having her on our staff. So if you are a photographer on the West Coast please give us an email if interested in shooting with us. Our 8th annual Slamology is just a few months away… Get ready for 2011.. It is showing to be the largest Slamology yet.. We have a bunch of new sponsors coming aboard and registration # s are already at a record high. www.slamology. com Until Next Month, Wear your green on the 17th, Get those rides ready to show and get those dollars tied up like a bowtie and tramp stamp every stripper with a gauge sticker.
