In the early 90s when Smith was at Hot Rod ...car craft was stuck in a restoration warp that made it unreadable ...

I have been a subscriber since 92 or 93 to Hotrod and carcraft and my biggest gripe is they always seem to be behind the curve on what is going on. I have some older cc and hr mags from the 80s before the merge and they were both better magazines on their own.

I pulled my magazine ads. They no longer justify the cost.

You do realize the issue you buy this month was put together 7-10 months ago and that many of the actual articles were written even before that. They have a big duffle bag of stories they keep refilling and then pulling them when a theme is decided upon.
