… so this morning, I'm innocently reading the readers forum in the latest issue of Keith Martin's American Car Collector. This issue is the first to come after the shutdowns began, and Keith has queried the readership about how they think the collector car market will be affected.

Most of the responses are reasoned and interesting, and then there's one in a written "voice" I think I recognize. Sure enough, it's credited to Andy.

Wow. I feel almost famous!

I have been on streak with that column... I think it's 5 or 6 straight issues I have been in that section!

Forgot to mention... Keith and I are friends. We have never met in person, ironically enough, but we are fb friends, any number of email exchanges, and I have inspected a car for him. Somewhere deep in the bowels of my smartphone is Keith's phone number.

There was a special section in the Jan 2018 issue in honour of their 30th anniversary. Below is what I submitted and was ultimately published:


The most significant was when Keith Martin trusted me with inspecting an Alfa Duetto a couple of years back.

Making friends... Having had the privilege to meet and become friends with Donald Osborne.

The most fun was about five or six years ago. In honour of the Jaguar XKE and Ferrari GTO, readers were asked to send in memories of these cars. I sent in two, one was in SCM, the other in the Pebble Beach guide.

Within hours of the magazine landing, I was getting emails from friends everywhere. Commenting, congratulating, it was most cool... then about a year ago, a gentleman on Facebook messaged me and ask if I was the same Andy Bogus who wrote those pieces back all those years ago! This stuff has some staying power, don't you think?

Lastly, I think the best part is a sense of community. It has a feeling of being a family, no matter who you are, how vast or how small your collection might be, there is a "we are in this together" vibe. If nothing else, when posting on facebook, suggesting that Keith replace the engine in <fill in blank> with an LS1 has made more than one person spew coffee!!

Thank you all for the news, information and mostly, the fun.

Hah! So the fix was on—still nice to see. Now I have to go back and re-read all those prior issues …
