Welcome   to   Leaded   issue   12.   Many   years   have   passed since   issue   11.   Our   little Australian   Classic   and   Sports   car publication   had   quite   the   following,   and   it   broke   my   heart to   have   to   cease   publishing   back   in   2007.   Even   in   this short     time     frame,     technology,     trends     and     printing techniques   have   changed.   We   have   seen   the   rise   and stagnation   of   digital   only   niche   publications   and   a   radical shift   in   what   local   newsagents   put   what   is   left   on   the shelves.     So     rather     than     becoming     a     digital     only publication    (that    never    gets    seen    or    read),    Leaded    is foremost    available    as    a    quality    collectible    quarterly printed   publication.   So   I   hope   you   enjoy   the   new   layout and content. The   roots   of      Leaded   have   always   been   stories   about   Australian owners   or   collectors   and   their   cars   and   car   clubs,   and   I’m   proud to   say   Leaded   is   still   very   much   focused   in   this   direction.   I’m   also proud   to   announce   that   Barry   Green   and   Doug   Partington   have continued   writing   for   Leaded.   Putting   it   lightly,   both   Doug   and Barry   have   amazing   automotive   backgrounds   and   as   a   result, offer   little   known   or   extraordinary   experiences   that   are   always worth a good read. It's   worth   noting   Leaded   is   only   available   via   Car   Clubs   (that   wish to    become    a    distribution    point)    and    subscription    only    via    the Leaded    Shop.   As    in    the    past,    I    will    also    be    attending    major events    and    hoping    to    have    a    stall    to    sell    and    promote    the publication as well, so come and say Hi! With   this   re-launch   issue,   I   have   sourced   vehicles   from   friends and    colleagues.    So    it’s    no    accident    that    I    have    focused    on vehicles   that   I   am   passionate   about   and   participate   with   in   and around   the   car   clubs   I   belong   to.   Where   possible,   I   also   have video   on   most   of   the   stories,   so   don’t   miss   the   web   links   at   the end   of   the   article   which   always   appear   next   to   “Mr   Leaded”   (the bowser attendant). In   saying   all   of   this,      I'm   always   searching   for   great   stories   about Australian   owners   and   their   cars   and   clubs.   So   if   you   have   a prized    possession    you    would    love    to    talk    about    or    have professionally photographed, please let me know. And   finally   don’t   forget   to   let   your   friends   know   about   Leaded Magazine.     As     an     independent     publisher     and     fellow     car enthusiast,   it’s   always   great   to   hear Australian   sports   and   classic car enthusiasts spreading the word.
