Welcome to Chevy Punch Magazine, a new feature of the Team sites! I've been hanging around the Team since the 'Hot Cars and Cold Beer' site was online during my college days. I figured there would be questions about how to navigate through the magazine, so here are a few tips to get you started.
Chevy Punch uses the Adobe PDF format which we feel is the most interactive way to publish on the Web. It may be a little unfamiliar to some of you, so here are a few tips to get you started. Soon you'll know it like the back of your hand!
-Adobe Reader 6.0 or greater is required. It's a free download from http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/ and easy to install.
-The file size of our first issue is a little shy of 7 Megabytes. For easy access you will probably want to download the file to your own computer so it runs faster. There are lots of clickable links embedded in the magazine, so you'll want to have an internet connection on your computer to get the most enjoyment out of it.
-Since we're committed to bringing you lots of sights and sounds, we have a cool video in the Nova feature article. For best results, we recommend you download Apple Quick Time (it's free!) from http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/win.html. To keep the file size down to a minimum, the video is actually stored on the Chevypunch.com site, so you will need an Internet connection to view it. Save a copy if you like it!
-Al and I put together Chevy Punch to bring real grassroots hot-rodding into the forefront for everyone to see. We're working for you, so we brought a new group of forums online for you to post feedback, story ideas, corrections, project car updates, whatever. And in that spirit, you'll see that the first few issues mostly cover the projects we've got going on in our own garages. We'd love to cover what's going on in yours.
-If you're having trouble with any of the magazine content, please post at https://www.chevyteam.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=94 and we'll do our best to help!
-Tony and Al
