Stradale Magazine is a publication primarily focused on covering and comparing sports cars and grand tourers.
Entries are closed. Here’s the list of everyone who submitted. I’ll be releasing the reviews one at a time. Apologies to those I shut the door on, but I didn’t expect to get as many submissions as I did and I decided to go with a different plan than the one I originally had.
I plan on reserving a spot for rcracer11m and findRED19 in the next edition. If things go well and I get this magazine done sooner than I expect I may include those two in the current edition since they responded to my thread so early, but weren’t able to submit their cars.
I have a track car I’d like to send, but not until I finish the story… And to finish the story, I need to finish the family sedan that was produced before the track car. So, hopefully I can get the story done within the next week or two, as I just got done with finals (and have more free time again).
How do you want to handle multiple trims on a sports/track oriented car? I have several trims for this unspoken track car, as my company would refresh it every few years or so over it’s 7+ production span.
Well, with the way submissions have been going I’m looking into closing them tomorrow and granting everyone who submitted a full review. This will potentially increase the time it takes me to get the first edition out there, but I think it will be a better route to go than accepting more submissions only to deny most of them a spot in the magazine.
While I have an easy time writing reviews and it’s something I can enjoy doing, I can’t say I enjoy working with graphics, and I honestly can’t bring myself to invest the time I would need to in order to get a good looking magazine that I wouldn’t feel ashamed of. The reviews are going to be like my posts in my car threads, as in there will be some writing and a spec sheet or two I put together using a few screen shots. It was worth some consideration, but after sitting on the idea for a while before making a promise I decided it would be best to simplify things before they got too out of control and made working on this magazine a dreadful experience.
All of that being said, expect the first review within the next few days.
