Messages from the editor

            Throughout the history of Gauge Magazine we have always put everything to the side to make sure that enthusiast world wide have an awesome place to visit monthly. On occasion we get way over our heads in daily work and a hectic show schedule. There is really no excuse why this editorial was late except that we are just plain slammed. So I am starting this months editorial with an apology to everyone that we left hanging on this issue.  

            To start this months issue we have the lovely Jaclyn Hubbard making her second appearance gracing the cover of Gauge Online Magazine. That’s right just last April Jaclyn met up with our staff at Spring Fling and stole our hearts with her stunning beauty and wonderful attitude. Just click this link to see her layout from April of 2004.

With all the attention on Jaclyn you don’t want to miss the awesome 1993 Toyota owned by Mike Reeves. Mike took this old school toy and turned it into a total show stopper.  Congratulations Mike… Your truck is awesome.

Our next step on feature row this month brings us to the absolutely flawless 2000 Chevy Camaro owned by Dave Wilson of Cookeville, TN. Dave has spent countless hours building this dream car into a true show vehicle. Dave’s camaro is also accompanied by the beautiful Crystal Powell.

While at Indy Truck Bash this year photographer Toby Mosholder got the opportunity to catch up with Jonas Deforrest and capture his 1998 Chevy S-10 for all of us to admire. Sport Truck styling, killer stance and 20 inch wheels left everyone speechless.

This months issue offers massive show coverage. We start the month in our home town of Indianapolis, IN for Import and Truck Bash. Hands down to David Figg from Special Events and the host club Latest Craze for keeping this show the best in the country for 12 years straight. Get pre-registered for Truck Bash 2006 today.

For the Next Show we stay in Indianapolis , IN for the GM Small Car Bash. The history of this show started like most, in a small parking lot with a few GM car forum members getting together to meet in person. This year the show moved to Indianapolis Raceway Park to offer a day of drag racing and a killer show field. For info on the 2006 GM Small Car Bash contact Tim Schnelling at the GM Small Car Web Site.

Now when it comes to having a good time in a truck nothing really compares to a mud bog. Photographer Toby Mosholder got the pleasure of shooting this wild event put on by the Fletcher Volunteer Fire Dept. in the Miami County Fairgrounds, Ohio. Buried to the doors is a serious understatement to these guys. Make sure to check this night of craziness out. You can get all the info for next years event at this link.

To wrap this months coverage up, we spend the weekend with staff photographer Erod at the XMZ Car/Truck/Bike Show and Dyno Challenge. “The Weekend with Teckademics” This show is the ultimate for all enthusiasts. One full day at the track, then another full day at the dyno. Needless to say this is a horsepower intense weekend. For info on the 2006 event visit

Till next month if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to shoot me an e-mail at
