Default Magazines

My subscription is due on some of the car magazines. I get them in the mail and sometimes it's 3-4 days before I look at them. Then I usually just quickly scan them looking for articles that are of interest to me.

I'm debating renewing. Not that I have a lack of interest in cars, it's that I get enough entertainment on the interweb, Youtube and UDS. The mags aren't relevant to what I'm doing these days.

How about you guys? Are you still avid readers of the car mags?

The web has completely replaced magazines for me... though my wife occasionally buys me a copy of Hot Rod Deluxe on grocery day. (I find it difficult to use a computer on the toilet.)

Been a while since I subscribed to any. Not much in my interest area anymore, but if I see something interesting on a rack, I buy it.

I still subscribe and will go on for a while yet. Sometimes even the advertisements catch my eye, but the pictures are still visual fodder for me.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Everything online for me as well - although I have a tremendous collection of Street Rodder, Hot Rod, etc etc in the garage. I never look at them any more but can't bring myself to get rid of them either.

Don't do subscripts, online has plenty. But I do get the Hagerty, and car catalogs that I ordered from.
