Hey guys! My boyfriend, Eric, loves OFF-ROAD Magazine-it's the only magazine he reads! I recently snapped these pictures of Eric reading the July issue when Einstein, our 6-week-old kitten, jumped up to join him. Apparently your magazine is the only magazine Einstein will read, too! Keep up the great work.

Better Fuel Economy?!
Hi, I'm a big fan of your magazine. My town is the most boring place ever for three 14-year-olds. Therefore my friends and I wanted to have a little fun with a '77 GMC with a 12-inch lift kit and some 40-inch tires. We wait all week for it to rain but when it does we can barely drive our truck because we don't have any gas money. My question is: How can I get better fuel economy?

P.S. I hate the name of my town.
Matt, I'm trying not to laugh, but your email was pretty funny. And how are you driving solo at age 14, by the way?!
About better fuel economy: C'mon, dude-you're rolling 40-inch tires! I promise that you'd spend less time finding a part-time job and working for extra gas money than you would just trying to figure out how to get better fuel economy in that old carbureted beast. How about this: What if you sold rides to your buddies for some extra gas money? I bet that your other friends would pitch in and make it happen if the three of you were willing to take some people for rides.
I just like to draw Dodge Ram trucks. Here is the picture I did of Jinxy, and one of my ride (The Burgandy Bandit!).
'Hope you guys like 'em. Thanks.

Very cool, LG. Thanks much for the drawings! I have them hanging up in the office. OR
