CONGRATS on your 35th anniversary! I picked up the July issue last night, and turned straight to the Best Of The 80s bonus mag.
Now this is either sad or deserving of a pat on the back, but nearly all of those cars I remember, and still have the issues that most of the original stories were in.
I bought my first issues of Street Machine in 1982 while I was studying at TAFE here in Perth; I dreamt of buying my first hottie reading those issues. In 1984 I managed to finally get my dream hottie, but sold it in 1989. I bought it back in 2013 and hope to have it restored by mid-2017.
Best of luck and continued good fortune, and quite possibly I may be still reading your content and be able to congratulate you on achieving your 50th in 15 years’ time. Well done to all involved, past and present.
