EGM New Beetle roadtrip special?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I recall that to celebrate the launch of the Volkswagen New Beetle, so this would have been 1997 or 1998, Electronic Gaming Monthly sent one of their editors on a cross-country tour of a borrowed car. He visited several interesting attractions such as Battletech pods, mega arcades and "state of the art" flight simulators that cost tens of thousands of dollars but looked less impressive than first gen 3DFX enabled games and shared road trip wisdom such as his dadrock playlist.

Does anyone remember or have more details about this issue? I believe the editor was Crispin Boyer but I am not certain, and in any event various Googles of him, EGM and Volkswagen aren't turning up much.
