Hot Rod Magazine

Why is it that the new Hot Rod is the November issue, a month and a half before november will occur? The info is about 2 months old, due the delays of layout, editting, and printing.

Just curious why they can't conform to the calendar based on planet Earth moving around Sol when it comes to placing a month on the cover and spine. Would it be too hard to get a bit closer to the real month of it hitting the shelves and post office boxes?
