Magazines

I have a lot of time to myself at work, and I was looking in the newsagent for some good magazines the other day to read and occupy my time. The problem is that most of the car mags relate to current model cars... I'm looking for magazines good for people interested in adding performance options to older cars (like the EA). Any suggestions as to what magazines are on the market for this sort of thing?

James

I think mags like Street Machine and Hot Fours & Rotaries, etc, etc cater for the 'older car' market. Then you've got the unheard-of magazines which feature some girl on the front next to a Datsun 180B with a pink paint job and a supercharger sticking out of the bonnet... you know what I mean.

Hey... if painting my EA pink, cutting a hole in the bonnet and sticking a supercharger on would get me women like that...

... I still wouldn't do it. :)

That's why you start with a 180B, mate.

I have a pretty extensive magazine collection dating from about September 1999 to present. I have everything, Most Wheels, every Motor from August 2000, Nearly every Hot4s from sep 1999, a few Street Machines, couple of High Performance Imports mags and some Street Commodores.

I have a really broad taste in cars, and since I have been reading all of them I have learnt so much. I was always in to cars, but never really touched a magazine til around the time I started driving.

Wheels I buy on and off depending on what articles are featured, though since they changed to the 'perfect bound' format I have bought all four copies. I have bought Motor ever since they featured an article on the VT II GTS v E55 v M5 at the Nurburgring in the Aug 2000 edition. (I still can't believe they declared the HSV a better drivers car!!!)

Hot4s I have bought because at one stage I was really in to that scene and I still am though to a lesser extent. Same deal with High Performance Imports. I used to buy Street Commodores, but most of the cars featured aren't very special at all. Street Machine I buy when there is an article I am interested in.

PERFORMANCE FORD is quite good. There is a sick EA in edition 1 of "Mean Fords" (i think its called). A guy spent over $ 50, 000 on his Ea S-pak..... whoa!

Re: mean fords

I got all the Performance Ford magazines, even tho there is only 3. I reckon it's a pretty good mag and features stuff from new to old
