I want to know who makes the best magazine to replace my current subscription to Motor Trend. American Mags only.

GRASSROOTS MOTORSPORTS
No other enthusiast book comes close. C&D is good for the nonenthusiast IMO.

I like Bimmer, no starting on page 12 and jumping to page 55 etc. to read an article. This is the best layout for a mag. i have seen in quite sometime.
In general Car and Driver is ok.

Does Automobile have articles on racing or is it just automotive reviews?

Here is my order of preference for US mags:
Car and Driver
Automobile
Sport Compact Car
Motor Trend
Road and Track (although I find them very stodgy and BORING!)

Car and Driver and Road and Track. I read Motor Trend as well. I stopped subscribing to Automobile when they ran a comparo between the G35 and IS300 called "the battle for second place", in which the BMW 3-series was declared the winner without even competing. The whole article was 4 paragraphs long.

C&D is the best of the US mags, but my favorite general-coverage mag from any country is Car, from the UK.

Grassroot Motorsports is boring. It's called "grassroot" for a reason. Why the hell would I want to read a magazine with the latest SoloII results?

damn. you beat me too it.
Grassroots forever. it's the only car mag worth paying more then the cost of a roll of toilet paper for.
while were talking about magazines... i would like to give a big FU to sport compact car, who single handedly designed, built, and currently pilots the 240sx bandwaggon.
