RISE OF THE MACHINE

Michael Hawkins, email

I HAVE just purchased two issues of Street Machine & Van Wheels magazine: October/ November 1981 and December 81/January 82. They are both in perfect condition, but my question is: Are these the first mags after Van Wheels morphed into SM? I also have all the Van Wheels mags, in great condition as well.

HEY mate, there was one before those two: Van Wheels & Street Machine Aug/ Sep 81, with Alley Cat on the cover. We regard that one as the first issue of SM, although the ones you own were the first issues to be called Street Machine & Van Wheels as opposed to the other way around. Great finds!
