    What did you expect from that company? They have at least a dozen emails from me and I never got a reply........

    A post office selling car magazines? Never heard that before.
    Lucky you!

    Many small villages in England have post offices that include what we call newsstands in the States. They typically sell candy, soft drinks, etc. as well. I suppose the same is true in Australia.

    Well, I expected a reply initially, then perhaps someone to sort it.

    After reading this thread, nothing now!

    Yes it's common here in the suburbs. You have a local Post Office which incorporates a small newsagency, banking facilities, passport applications, government forms etc. Here's mine which is 6 minutes walk from my factory:

    Apart from "Enzo" they stock these motoring related titles:

    Octane
    Forza
    911 and Porsche World
    Excellence
    Total 911
    Classic Porsche
    Cassic and Sports Car
    Classic Cars
    Motor Sport
    Rolls Royce and Bentley Driver
    Vantage
    Mercedes Enthusiast
    Classic Mercedes
    Mercedes-Benz Classic

    It's remarkable I think, and my overseas, usually European friends, are stunned to see these titles in the back blocks of Melbourne.

    I wonder how many of those titles they had before you started coming in and demanding that they be on the shelf. :) :)

    In Switzerland (where I live) not a single one of the mags you listed are available on a newsstand.

    In the states, we don't have that, but in some areas there are drug stores (what the Brits usually call chemists) that sometimes have post office branches in them, typically in small rural towns out west. I remember one in a far northern suburb of Seattle.

    Seems Australia is overrun with Enzo #13.
    Next they will be throwing them in for free in the daily newspaper just to get rid of them !!

    I hate when they put stickers on magazines. Fortunately that practice is rare in the U.S.; if they do, they put it over the bar code (often with a new bar code) which is not so bad.

    Unfortunately happens all the time with "foreign" magazines here. The stickers can usually be removed intact by heating with a hair dryer and carefully peeling off. But its a PITA to have to do it.

    Our Alaska Barnes and Noble is starting to come back. Enzo #13 still sitting there, but Magneto #7, Vantage #31, new F1 Racing, and new F1 magazine on shelves. Seems that the issues are current, and the missing months will remain missing. Maybe they are all in Australia, too?

    I think that missing issues will have to be ordered online; I did that with Enzo (not from the publisher!) and Magneto.
