im telling you theres more tricked out v6s where i stay than v8s! there more affordable and better on gas and thia day in age thats whats counting. im using my business conections tomorrow to see who i can find that might be interested or if its in my price range i might go for it. i took off my upper and lower intake manifold and port&polished them tonite and i took some pics of the process. that would make a good article on "low cost how to dos". i wanna be able to buy quality name brand stuff in the magazine thats customized for us and also include DIY budget builder guides! what other ideas u guys got?
Definitely have a reader's photo section/page, where subscribers can send in a pic and a short story about the car...that always looks good in a magazine.

Just throwing it out there, but have some reviews on parts and brands. Like you said, some articles on v6 specific installs/small projects (ie. 99-04 hood scoop install) I'm not sure how all the fine tuning (no pun) is with companies' approval and product usage works, but I'm sure someone does.

Another question, what would the year range be? 94-2010?

This site has a timeline on it with all the mustangs and engines offered for that year.
I know 4 cylinder and v6 mustangs were available since 64, but the more popular cars these days start around 85 and go to the more current years.

the v6 market share is not high enough to support a full fledged monthly magazine, there is a huge following just not nearly enough I dont think.


I think its a great idea just not a huge money marker, especially in today's world. Now if it was an electronic magazine that would be nice.

Then again it doesn't have to be a "monthly" magazine. It could come out every other month or so. But I think there are definately enough people out there with V6s to have a magazine for.

they had this back in the day, they did about 3 issues and then it fizzled out. There are more v6's now then back in those days~ its a possibility its all about how its done.

I think Spector is right... as much as I hate to be Debby Downer.

I think a quarterly magazine would be the best bet. I don't see how an e-zine could be all that profitable. It would just add one more site the V6 owners would have to go to, and that will either be too much of an inconvenience to your target audience or will come at the expense of some other site. Most of you probably spend about as much time as you're willing to in front of a computer looking for your V6 stuff if you're like I was.

I think the best way to increase the following of your magazine would be to have a large section devoted to readers. People will buy it if they're in it or think they have a chance at being in it. What car junkie wouldn't love to be featured in a magazine?

Maybe if there was a section of used Mustangs/Fords for sale also new and used parts section similar to Hemmings it would work. Along with readers rides and of course babe of the month. lol...

i say DEFF go for it. and i think you could pull the monthly thing off! i mean just look at this site, i see more new posts in the v6 section everyday then i see in the v8 section.

there is so much out there for the v6s to do and i have seen the more and more companies are starting to make products specifiacally for the v6s.

we have been treated as ford bastard step child too long lol we get NO LOVE at all! its about time somone did somtthing for us.

ill deff suscribe to it and i know a few shops that will as well.

I think it's a damned good idea. Will it workout? Who knows....only one way to find-out! RISK VS REWARD! Even though I'm not a "sixer", I'd be willing to help in any way that I could...be it article research, proof reading, etc. That'd give me something to do when the wifey hi-jacks the computer! lol
