Hey I was wondering how do you get ahold of Diesel Power magazine or Diesel World magazine? I would like to see if they were interested in doing a article on my truck.

Their contact information is for subscribing. Who is the person I need to contact about a article in their magazine?

I was told, you could call/e-mail and ask. If you meet their "standards" then you get a article. Do I fit these "standards"?

No, do i need to?
they won't even give you the time of day man.

Every article/feature they do on a truck is either a buddy of a buddy, paid 'em a bunch of $ to drop some advertising hints, or a shop owners pal, or some deal like that.

Well thats bullsh**, I thought they would be interested on doing a 19 YEAR OLD's Duramax. I hate that they only accept people with money. What about the people who work and add their parts little by little, the REAL people?

Yea everything thats on the cover or majority of the articles are Ford or Dodge.
I tried contacting Diesel Tech Magazine, they seem to be more lenient

I dont think you should be so negative man. I have personally contacted Diesel World and let them know what some local people were putting together and had about 10 trucks willing to dyno. Anyways they sent a free lance guy out to cover the event. This event was put together on another forum as one of our monthly meets. Also after i emailed them they responded later that day. Any thing can happen and thats why I emailed them. If i would have listened to people like you I would have never had them cover the event.

I am right there with you. I am a very young business owner, and still no go.

I'd stay with it and see where it goes. All it takes is getting ahold of the right guy.
I jus wanted to show, that even a person my age, can have a awesome truck if they put their mind to it. And plus it would be freakin sweet to be in a magazine!

did your event get into the magazine?

Feature trucks (which is what the OP is talking about) do not get into magazines unless there is some back door deal going on involving a buddy, vehicle manufacture or sponsorship.

I had one of, if not the fastest Turboed/Modded Volvo Station wagons in North America, and EuroTuner wouldn't even give me the time of day.

i don't mean to be negative, just telling this guy to not get his hopes up too high. :)
