I'm saving right now for an M-Coupe (it's the ultimate expression of my perfect automobile) and I'd love to read such a publication...
I might be able to help out the future, if I ever get more time (I got QXpress, Photoshop, Illustrator, Canvas, etc). My background is engineering - tech writing - so I don't think I'd be your graphics guy!

: Hey guys (and gal coupe owners if any are out there),
: I have been playing over in my mind setting up a Coupe web site. I've
: been thinking about makeing it in the form of a quarterly (or even
: biannual) e-zine, very graphic intensive, with articles, photo's and
: I'm looking for people who would like to participate in this just for
: fun project with me, that would be a good contribution. There are not
: many really good sites out yet there yet for the Coupe.
: I've got the servers and connection and all that stuff, plus technical
: knowledge. I would need graphics oriented people, photographic people,
: and people to write articles (i.e. suspension upgrades, installing a
: stereo, coupe care, etc.). Also HTML authors would be plus too. And of
: course we would need to take some road trips to take photo's of our
: coupe's in scenic locations such as twisty mountain roads and such.
: I even thought of a cool name (I think it's cool), get ready for this,
: how about:
: "Coupe Dreams"
: Huh? Yea? Kind of rhymes with the movie "Hoop Dreams" except if your
: not an american. The rest of the world apparently pronounces Coupe as
: (Koo-Pay) as in rhyming with Toupee. Cool, okay perhaps it's cheesy, I
: like it, but if anyone else participates we'll make the decisions
: My vision is to be extremely visually appealing (Our graphics person
: will have to be on psychedelic drugs). A fun place to pick up a few
: hints and check out some awesome photo's of Coupes.
: Even if you don't want to participate let me know if you would find such
: a site interesting. If you don't own a coupe you'd still be welcome to
: participate. If you don't own a coupe, don't want to participate, but
: would still find it interesting let me know. If you don't own a coupe,
: don't want to participate, and don't care, well then go to hell, but you
: can still let me know what you think. :)
