Please note our new advertising rates on inside back cover, are increasing for the first time in eight years. Since 1972 inflation has risen steadily, with the greatest boost in the past three years, as everyone knows.

The new rates are for both Iron-Men Album and Gas Engine Magazine. They are based on the circulation of IMA, which is about 8,500. The circulation of GEM is about 12,500. We are keeping the ad rates the same for both, since many organizations and retailers advertise in both magazines, month after month.

No other magazines can offer the circulation we do, in these specific fields. Our subscribers are engine collectors, restorers and exhibitors. Our circulation goes into all 50 states; Canada, and other nations such as Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand.

We are not soliciting for ads outside the immediate steam and gas engine service areas, such as for cigarettes, liquor or furniture. Our interests are those of our readers engines, farming, rural technology, and the progress of the organizations, rallies, museums, and general membership.

Our classified ads pull many inquiries. Some advertisers say they get as many as 40 calls from all sorts of places including nations overseas.

We thank you for your patronage.
