In any new project there are always birth pains and Mopar Max has now had its first with the departure in the middle of October of Mike Bumbeck as editor. Mike has gone on to other projects and we wish him well.

Until we find a replacement editor who has a solid background in journalism along with knowledge and experience in Mopar land, our publisher, Jeff Burk, will be directing the editorial content of the magazine. We will continue our goal of bringing our readers a wide variety of information about all types of Mopar vehicles brought together in one source. We aim to keep it informative and entertaining with news, features, cars and event coverage you won’t find anywhere else. You can get a history lesson and some technical know-how at the same place. We want to keep a sense of humor and be entertaining because, well, this car stuff is fun, isn’t it?

* Your letter may (or may not) be published in our "MoparMax Mailbag" section.

All of our regular contributors will remain: Kevin Thomson, Chris Barnes, Geoff Stunkard, Glen Grissom, and Ro McGonegal. Beginning with this issue we have added well-known writer and television commentator Steve Magnante to our staff. He will be writing a monthly column as well as doing some event coverage and features. He is a great addition and we are happy to welcome him.

We will be making a few changes in the magazine as we go along. We call it a magazine because most of the contributors have written for print mags and we design Mopar Max to look like a print magazine. There is no print edition, but all issues are archived so that they are always available. Click on the Archive button at the top of the table of contents page to see anything that we have produced.

You readers are a very important part of what we do. We want you to have a hand in shaping the magazine so please give us feedback as to what you like and what you don’t, what you want to see more of and what you may never want to see again. You can either fill out the form in our Letters section or send your comments to the editor. And if you’d like to apply for the editor job, email your resume to the same address.

So come on and join us on this ride -- we’ve got some great things planned for the future. Check out our Mopar Memos about the 392 Hemi engine and last weekend’s racing results. The Memos will be updated a couple of times per week, so check back to see what’s new. In this month’s issue we have a tour of the Chrysler Museum in Michigan, part two of Dave Wallace’s history of the Dodge Chargers, a hands-on tech article by long-time Mopar racer Jok Nicholson, a tour of the Fall Fling by Steve Magnante and more. Next month it will be. . . .
