hey, puerile schoolboy humour keeps me sane at work!
a bit OT, not sure if you've read it Marrea, but Racer is pretty minimal on the totty front and TOTALLY MAX on the OMG what a stunning racing shot. The photography they manage to get is just stunning, and one of the main reasons for buying the mag for me. Shame that stalker's column (thats what its called, honest) seems to have vanished though.
Interestingly the web page hasn't been updated since 2000, so ignore anything on there and get down to the local library that is known as WHSmith, and grab a copy!
As far as car mags go, there is only one, Evo, been reading it since 1. Again, great photo's and not a scantily dressed lass in site.... I think I better write to the editor about that!

Other mags like racer, max power etc, dont forger some of the readers (female) are more than happy to show off their assets, its just part of cruise culture, they luv it, the guys luv it, not all woman are against exploiting themselves and not all blokes are for it.
As far naked people and computers, it just doesn't add up in my head, motorsports I can sort of understand in my non PC way. Adrenaline, speed, danger, glory, bike lent over disobeying physics, doing 140MPH down the cork screw at Laguna seca, or the 300kmh crash on the main straight at Mugello for Shinya Nakano.
Adrenaline, speed, danger --> computers.... trying to overclock a 1GHZ chip to 1.5GHZ chip, c'mon, its just not the same.
I agree, use the space for something more beneficial.
On the Hudsons shirt debate, maybe the lxf crew could do a calendar like that film based on the WI, ohh what was it calleed, mmmm, oh yeah, Calendar Girls.
Perhaps a carefully positioned penguin to keep things legal.......
