Can you guy give me some suggestions on different car magazines besides Automobile, Motortrend, Car & Driver, and Road and Track. What are good ones, and tell me what they're about. Thanks!

i like reading evo, its spendy though, about $10 an issue.

That's a good one, as is Top Gear and also Car. All three are British and cost about $9-10 an issue. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

In addition to the ones you mentioned, I also get European Car and Sport Compact Car. I'm not a huge fan of the former, but SCC has some excellent technical articles, and I like the mix of Euro, Japanese and domestic coverage.

EVO is cool although it'd be nice to have a magazine of that caliber dedicated to US vehicles.
Most magazines suck, and are usually a month or two behind. There are a lot of good blogs and forums
that'll keep ya up to date though.

two of my picks for the rod & custom scene would have to be rod & custom and the rodders journal (pricey but well worth it).

Stay FAR away from "Modified Mag." It is the most juvenile, frat-boy-like, ignorantly written and boring "magazine" I have ever wasted money and 10 minutes reading. Seriously, I'm STILL angry about it a year later. It is THAT BAD.
Sorry I couldn't contribute more, but I felt that warning was in order.

Sports Car International is quite good, albeit bi-monthly. Covers most of what the CL likes, and isn't ONLY new car stuff.
GRM has interesting content, but crummy photos, and average writing.

I get AutoWeek and European Car, the latter of which supposedly has a new format but I haven't had a chance to look through the debut issue on my coffee table yet.
Regardless, they do the job for me. Weekly industry insights, and maddening cross-continent stuff you could kill kittens with.

Evo and Grassroots are the only ones I would put down money to buy. With the 2 of them you have pretty much all your bases covered.

I think you're right, but I don't believe TCL has settled on a general-basis automotive rag to add up there to that list yet.
That could make a good poll. Hrmmm...
