I haven't subscribed to Deluxe yet. I may when this hot rod subscription runs out. And yes the bodies are very close. That's what caught my attention.Hot Rod Magazine has improved its format in the past year or so. The success of Hot Rod Deluxe has helped give Hot Rod magazine new direction.
It is interesting how the '40 Studes & Chevys look so much alike. The body of these cars look almost identical to each other more than any cars of their time.
