A call to arms against Turbo Magazine's "left coast" pandering to imported
turbo cars, while ignoring our cars' racing heritage, and Joe's racing

Yeah I'm thinking of;

a published boycott of Turbo magazine by the NATIONAL Turbo 2.3 Owner's

We are several hundred strong, and we're all real loudmouths at the tracks
we frequent.  There is no room in the sport for your style of "race-ism". 
I hide my Turbo license plates and hats I got from your defunct lame-o
Turbo Club of America.

Wake up Mike, your setting yourself up to look really stupid in the near
future.  I personally have had enough of you ignoring, and slighting 2.3s.

Check the headers, Mike.  I'm forwarding this entire thread to the SVO
Owners, and Thunderbird Turbo Coupe mailing lists....  Better check the
inbox frequently....
