    All mags except the photo ones get read cover to cover (I expunge feces a lot I guess???). I tend to only read about equipment or techniques I'm interested in when reading the photo mags.

    Subscribe:
    -Road and Track, Love Peter Egan, Salon feature, just nuke the wide format, too hard to hold reading in bed, on the toilet !
    -Autoweek - frequency, ads and fresh news
    -Car and Driver - I am getting more conserbative as I get older, but these guys are turning into zealots (too far to either side is not healthy)
    -Sports Car Market - subsribed when it was the Alfa only rag, met Keith, like the self depreciating humour and barbs about others' cars
    -Car - british one, funny articles, check out "Toureg meets Toureg" for an example
    -Overheard Cams - Alfa club mag
    -FCA pubs- for the ads and events
    -Automobile - too stuffy on occasion, but nice pics, international perspective

    Newstand pick up:

    -Hemmings - I know it is online, too...
    -Forza - when they feature 2+2s, or other attainable Ferraris
    -Thoroughbred and Classics- when Italian cars are featured, or for checking euro prices

    One of these days, I will estimate how much I spend on auto related pubs, and I will scare myself.

    thx

    I have a ritual to buy CAR whenever I fly. By far the best car mag, IMO. The writing is real poetry - those Brits come up with the best analogies ever. At $9-10 USD though, it's a tad pricey to buy frequently. Hence it's a 'treat' I save for travelling. It's so long compared to other mags I know I can burn a good 2 hours with one.

    EVO is good too - whenever I'm in a Barnes and Noble I'll go through one.

    As for C&D:

    YES! WE KNOW! EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS THAT BROCK YATES WAS IN THE REAL THING AND WROTE CANNONBALL RUN! BUT GIVE IT A FRICKIN BREAK! WE DON'T CARE ANYMORE! MOVE ON!!

    I needed to say that.

    Motor Trend is utter drivel- not even worthy of the survey. Road and Track (which I grew up with and used to love) isn't far behind. Car and Driver is by far the best of what's listed.

    My favorite magazine is "Car" (from the UK). The photography and writing are leagues ahead of what is listed. The picture of a black Enzo on an Italian road in early Spring featured in a recent issue is so good I want to buy it.

    I also subscribe to Autoweek and Automobile Quarterly both of which are fine mags IMO.

    Actually, I think Car and Driver is utter drivel- and I have a subscription!
    I always liked Motor Trend, with Road and Track a close second. What's wrong with MT?
