Actually, this is a great idea and is something I have been
contemplating. I want to start a classic collector journal and have it
coincide with the C4 show but I don't think I will have time for it. I'm
hoping that maybe by the end of the year I can get something going. But
I would need support from others, especially to write articles. Perhaps
we can make it a group effort?
