    I hope you get them, but your not receiving them doesn't mean they weren't sent. I'm still waiting for credit for a large check I mailed the PA Department of Revenue --in 2021. Stuff happens out there.

    Losing the Rodder's Journal was a huge disappointment back then, kudos to Steve Coonan and the rest of his staff for steppin' up to the plate where it counts! When the time frame comes for new subscribers to get the green light, I'll be one of the many to grab a subscription... Ask me how I feel about this...
     
  6. Well, seeing as I was the person who started this thread maybe I should put my 2 Oz cents in.........I have had subscriptions to a number of USA based magazines over the years.......some that come to mind include Rod & Custom, Rodders Digest, American Rodder, Street Rod Builder, Collectible Automobile and a couple of others who I forget..........in all cases I have been screwed either when these magazines stopped publishing without any notice or changed the delivery method which made the receipt here in Australia almost impossible to continue and "kapput" there went the subscription with no recompense.
    I have always been a strong supporter of The Rodders Journal to the extent of buying the special sets including The Dan Post Set, The Vintage Catalog Set and another 5 or 6 sets that are packed away at present whose names escape me.
    My only reason in starting this thread was to see if there is any way I can obtain or continue to obtain further copies of The Rodders Journal, after all it seems a pity to stop buying & reading the best Hot Rodding magazine after 85 issues.
    I am not some recently minted gold chain hotrodder.....I have owned and built my 1940 Dodge 4Dr Sedan since 1971 when I was 17yrs of age and as at today still own this car after 52.5 years.
    So.......I would like to continue to read and enjoy The Rodders Journal, if for no other reason than to read the tribute to Pat Ganahl so how can I do this?.
    Thank You

    I stand by my advice from post #19, use the customer service email address and send them your requests/questions. I recently sent a change of address myself. You never know, it might work....

    I'm with you @andydodge .

    I have had the same experiences as a subscriber to hot rod magazines.

    I responded to their email I received this week trying to find out who is their Australian dealer, now that Grafitti Publications has effectively closed their doors.

    I've been in contact with one of their dealers overseas to see if I can source a copy from them.

    Hopefully I can continue to support them by buying this and future copies of what is a great magazine.

    None of us would be stating these things and questioning them IF their customer service was better, or even existent, at this point. So sad to see their standing within the hot rod community fall to such low levels, due to their lack of communication. Steve makes a great product, one we all desire and we covert our copies of all 85 editions.

    I look forward to collecting #100 in a few years

    I have been critical in previous threads of TRJ's lack of communication, and I must say that I still see this as a major flaw in their company strategy. However, after watching the fightback and seeing the tenacity shown by Steve Coonan, I will say that I would be happy to have him standing beside me in a pinch. I don't know how it will all pan out, but the effort put in by Steve on behalf of subscribers should be admired.

    As for the Aussie guys complaining, Do you really expect to be high on the priority list of a U.S based magazine that is fighting for survival?o_O

    I have been wondering about print for hot rods. Since so many have been long gone. Is there a way to subscribe to this ? Or is this not something just anybody can get? Sure would like to have this. I have one issue and I'm not sure but it's old.

    I've emailed twice with a change of address and have no idea if they've actually received it and revised their mailing list. Fingers crossed.

    I look forward to receiving the latest issue if I get one. After all the issues and poor communication and broken promises there never be a renewal dollar spent by me.
