Larry Pierce...

This past weekend, the Show Class family lost a very dear friend, Larry Pierce, as did many of you. In an effort to offset some of his family's burden, we are donating $2 from every magazine sold this month to them. We could never even attempt to put a price on the positive influence Larry had over all of us, but hopefully we can make a positive impact on the future of Larry's legacy.  Thanks for your support!

Mama Tried.....

What can I say....?

Milwaukee is always the BEST.... Always great seeing good friends... Dusty, Justin, Luke and Nate always take the best care of us and this time was no exception.... plus our brothers one from the arctic tundra, Zac, and other from the West Coast, Steve, came out to party too.... plus Scott and Warren put on one hell of a show.... made the snow and long fucking drive worth it all....... we had a blast... too many people to mention - or maybe I'm just too lazy.... anyways, next time they put this show on I hope we are asked to be part of the fun and we won't miss it so, if you skipped it you made a mistake.... don't let it happen again.... haha.....

We'll have more shots from the show in Issue 18 which will be out in April....

Thanks again Milwaukee.... we LOVE YOU!

Issue 18 Inner View - Denver Dan....

Here's your chance to ask Denver Dan whatever you want to know.... Maybe get a little insight into one of the guys behind the scenes at Speed Merchant...

We asked one of Dan's buddies to write up a little intro... as usual, Marco killed it.... here's what he wrote....


Greek Mythology 101: Apollo, Zeus, Achillies, Denver Dan….. (((Record Scratch)))
Denver who? Denver Dan Begakis…Thats who! 
And if the name doesn’t strike a chord in the bank of memory, perhaps you need to check your chopper timeline for gaps.  Sure the name wasn’t mentioned in 1812 when Homer penned the Lliad but in 1970 So.Cal birthed a surly spawn of punk rock attitude and future, man, myth, legend all of its own. While most legends encompass finite areas of interest, the mythology behind Dan of Denver is broad beyond comprehension, so in the tradition of Socratic Method…. ShowClass Magazine presents the “Denver Dan Innerview”


Anyways, I want to thank Dan for being part of the fun.... and I'll start the questions off:

What made you guys start Speed Merchant?  What was the hardest part of getting SM started?

Leave your questions below in the COMMENTS section and if you're lucky Dan will write back.... haha....
