We have two major oureach segments at the Society - this Newsletter, No Limits, and the Society's website found at Therefor, we have similar,but different missions:

  • The Society has the job of collecting and maintaining digital images of automotive material - from print advertisements to magazine road tests - all is stored in the Eric White Digital Library that you can visit any time.
  • The No Limits Magazine is just that - a digital newspaper that compiles articles from either our Library or as a result of research and reporting of events..

Thus, both have slightly different resolutions for the coming year.

No Limits Magazine Resolutions:

  • To increase it's coverage of major car shows and events to bring you more "Living History"
  • To place more artwork in the e-mail version of the newsletter.
  • To spend some time informing you of new collections in the Library or pending acquisitions.
  • To give you more features and extracts from our magazine collection - to encourage you to visit this Library section.

The Automotive History Preservation Society's Resolutions:

  • To add more content in the Magazine Section via the scanning and clean up of the over 13,000 magazines we recently acquired.
  • To add a bonafide "Internship Program" where we teach returning veterans digital skills applicable to that industry to assist them in job acquisition.
  • To develop deeper relationships with researchers, writers, publishers, educators and students, so that they see the value and ease of use of our materials.
  • To add to our in-house staff of volunteers through active recruiting.
  • To develop a firm connection to Automotive Libraries and Museums - and to develop an on-going workshop where we exchange digital copy or trade digital copy for access to paper records.

Most of all, both the magazine and the website want to make the enthusiasts' experience more rewarding and exciting - as well as educational.

We hope that we get all our resolutions accomplished and that next year we can say "Hey, we don't need to do anything for 2019 . . . NOT.

Story by Society Staff
Reprint with permission only.

2017 was a very busy and fun year for the staff at No Limits. We put out 26 regular issues (one every other week). And we even put together our special SEMA coverage issues and even a few special issues.

In terms of coverage and articles for our readers, we had a wide variety - When it comes to "living history" - we covered and reported on more than a dozen Goodguys shows, national car shows and many local car shows with hundreds of great photos for you to review..

We ran several series including:

  • A 5 part interview with Jim Wangers of GTO fame.
  • A 10 part (original) series called The Performance Chronicles.
  • A new series called "Car Models Described" that brought together our vast digital library to highlight specifications, and information on "orphaned" american auto brands.
  • A five-part retro series called Back from the Dead, where we chronicled a retoration of a 1967 442 from Grave back to Cradle.
  • A bunch of Stephen Cox blogs.
  • And anew eries for SEMA ARMO members to tout their new product releases.

We worked up some special features - including a visit to the Cobra Experience; a report on the need for support for the RPM Act - in conjunction with SEMA SAN; and our annual SEMA Show coverage.
