Forums boy makes good: Shows dreams can come true!

Hi everyone,

After posting about changing jobs a couple of weeks ago let me just say the things went badly.

But fate can be interesting and after 6 nightmare weeks today I start a new job that many of you will consider the equivalent of being a Penthouse photographer...

You've all heard of Express Publications I hope.

They are the publishers of such motoring magazines as Hot 4's, Street Commodores, Aussie BRutes and 4WD Monthly.

Well they have finally decided to bite the bullet and start a sister magazine for Street Commodores called - funnily enough - STREET FORDS.

In a case of absolutely unbelivable good luck, Express have hired me to be the new EDITOR of this magazine.

Can't say much more than that at this stage, but they did allow me to announce it on here to everyone. Will let you all know more about it as I do and we come closer to the publication of Issue 1.


Cheers
Jason

Congrats JR, it truly is a dream job that many of us certainly envy. It shows everything happens for a reason. Goodluck with it mate and I will be sure to get myself a copy of this mag once it is released.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

WooHoo, I'm all excited now.

Somehow I think there will be a few Forum cars appearing in the first few issues.

/me goes and starts polishing the car.
