Virtual Indian Magazine
September 2000 Features
To the VI front page
Yeah, OK, so the magazine got delayed this time too! Sorry about that, but we just HAD to get the Davenport articles in. -And the racing stories... There hasn't been too much Indian racing in the VI until now, but I hope that will change in the future. There is a lot of it going on all over the place, and well, what's cooler than racing Indians, really? As expected the VI booth at the Davenport meet meant that a bunch of VI Listers got together, and I get the destinct impression that sparks were flying in the hot Iowa sunshine as new ideas and projects were discussed. I'm sure we will see every aspect of the 'VI thing' stepped up a notch in the year to come, and the reunion next year should be even better! Apart from this issue's twin themes of Davenport and Racing, there's a ton of other good stuff. More new Indian parts than anyone would have dared to imagine just a year or two ago, more interesting columns and Indian stories than ever seen in one place before, both hardcore Indian Tech stuff and Indian Culture like a completely updated book page (and great book reviews!), Indian websites and some fine Indian drawings. Enjoy! -And don't forget to write the people who wrote the magazine that you loved their story!  Moen
