    I just bought 2 Hot Rod magazines from 1962 at an antique mall. 2 dollars apiece! Great reading. So much better than modern magazines. They actually show you how to do things. And all the car features are great.

    I have so many totes from about 1978 back of everything with an engine. Dune buggy, hotrod, streetbikes, offroad-even have a metal detecting and strength building from the 60s-70s. I miss the early Garage magazine but still get hotrod and 4wheel and offroad for the bathroom

    Kustoms Illustrated, Rodders Journal, sometimes some of the newer hot rod mags, but I have and continue to collect a lot of the old pocket/mini mags.

    HOT ROD DELUXE because there's a good mix of cars and history. HOT ROD because of
    its monthly historical trips into the past. Each year I give away the Hot Rod's through
    craigslist and they generally go to kids.

  18. None. Gave up on them before they cancelled Rod & Custom the last time. All they are any longer is ads and 'tech articles' that are actually reprints of after market parts installation instruction manuals. I still get Hot Rod and Street Rodders in the mail. I haven't subscribed fro years but they keep giving me free extensions! I thumb thru them but rarely stop on any page. Takes less than a minute to 'read' one. Just isn't anything in there that interests me any longer. I occasionally pick up a Rodder's Journal or Hot Rod Deluxe at the news stand (one every 5 years or so) if an article interests me.

    I do still have my '50s, '60s, '70s, & early '80s collections of R&C, Car Craft, Hot Rod, Street Rodder, Hot Rod Mechanix, Rod Action, Model Car Science, Car Modeler, Rod & Custom Models (only published for one year but are the absolute best model car magazines eve published), etc. form when they were really useful publications. Much rather pull out a few of those and read them for an hour or two than open a current mag.

    It seems every automotive magazine I've subscribed to ends up out of business:
    Hot Rod Mechanix
    Rodder's Digest
    Custom Rodder
    Rod and Custom
    American Rodder
    Maybe I should subscribe to something put out by congress--That'll fix 'em!

  22. Got a subscription for Street Rodder as Christmas present. Truly some well crafted Hot Rods, being covered nowadays.

    I'm 17, never saw the halcyon days of the american automotive magazine, but I do own a few mid-late 50's hot rod magazines.
    the current ones I buy on regular are Hemmings Motor News, Hot Rod, Street Rodder, and Hot Rod Deluxe.

    I don’t know of any magazine these days that can be supported by subscription and retail sales alone. The ads pay so you don’t have to.
