And, don't forget the primary purpose of a magazine as a bathroom read - even the advertisements are enjoyable to look at. Laptops and Ipads just don't seem to belong on the throne with you...

Street Rodder quit too...they sent me a refund for my subscription.
My Raleigh, NC paper will stop the Saturday edition in March...but hey! it's available online!
no refund available, just the subscribers tough luck I guess.

I like the old little 50s mags. Have a small collection.

Now days a lot of magazines are moving into digital content.

One mentioned by the original poster is the 4x4 magazine.... http://www.fourwheeler.com/

Lot of stuff on motortrend for $5 a month.

I have almost 2 years left on my Street Rodder subscription as well as a multi year subscription to HR so I asked for a refund. The only reason I get HR is because it was very inexpensive. It wouldn't even be so bad if SR'r was offered online but to just end it like they did sucks.

I'm waiting for Alzheimer's to kick in a little bit; then, all of the old mags I have from the '50's through the '80's will be new again!

Also I find print magazines much more suitable for "the reading room". Somehow a laptop just doesn't work as well in there for me!
Me too!!!!

I sent an e-mail a week ago and had a return e-mail saying a representative would contact me soon. I too had just added two years to my subscription to HRD

Called them yesterday and got through. They cheerfully refunded my Street Rodder subscriptions, had $5 left on my old one and $95 on the new one one not started yet. Yea, it sucks, but as they say, nothing is forever.

I haven't received a letter from SR. I just renewed for 3 years and found out about a week after the check cleared that all those magazines were dumped.

Best of all you can have your car featured in the V8 Times by submitting a story and some pictures. People from different countries can read about your car or maybe even tech tips. Sure we have that here but when this server crashed the V8 Times will still be there.
