It sounds like good coverage, I have laminated a brief summary of the marques history that I attatch to the windscreen of my Midas when I go to meets/events. It still suprises me the amount of people who have had experience of Midas', hopefully publicity will help to encourage people to get more cars in the public eye.

Well, I bought my copy of the magazine from WHS, but when I read your post, Alistair, I sent Ian Stent an email:

"Hi Ian,
As a result of Alistair Courtney’s request on the Midas Owners’ Club forum, I thought I’d pass this on to you.

I don’t buy any magazines on a regular basis, but I have to thank you for this edition, with its article about the Midas. Really enjoyed it, and it’s good to see a well written article about my vehicle of choice – I built a Mk 2 (Bronze) Midas in 1985, and currently have a Mark 3 (Gold) which is very slowly being returned to a roadworthy condition, with the intention of it eventually becoming my main road transport – an essential, since I live in the middle of a forest!

Many thanks for publishing it.

Best wishes
David Lees (in the middle of Scotland)
"

Shortly after, I got a brief reply from Ian:

"Hi David,
Glad you enjoyed it, and good luck with the Gold!
All the best
ian
"

Nice to get a response. The followup response, which arrived today, was even nicer:

"Hi David,
You email was the ‘letter of the month’ in the last issue, which means you win a CKC fleece!
If you could tell me your size and address, we’ll get one in the post.
Many thanks
Ian
"

I like this kind of surprise, I only sent them an email to thank them for printing the article!
Thanks, Alistair, for prompting me to do so.
And thanks to Ian too, if you're reading this.

:D

It did have the effect that I went out and bought the latest edition (since that's the one they published my email in)!
