OVERVIEW
Super Stock & Drag Illustrated (SSDI) was started by John "Monk" Reynolds, the publisher of Eastern Drag News and owner of US30 drag strip in York, PA.  The publishing addresses for the Eastern Publishing Company were initially at 1913 Mt Vernon Ave. and later 522 Pitt St., Alexandria, Virginia.

The magazine was started in November, 1964 and was published continuously until March, 1999.  Mr. Reynolds was assisted by editor Jim Davis and technical editor Bill Jenkens in the beginning.  The magazine went through many changes in editorial staff in its lifetime.

In February, 1974, SSDI changed ownership to Lopez Publications. Lopez published continuously until the 1990s when the title was sold. It operated as Super Stock and Drag Illustrated Inc. Ownership is unknown at this time, and more research is needed.
