I kind of have to agree with Brandon.  


However, considering that I have kept every issue of every magazine that
I've ever received through the mail since 1975, I'm beginning to rethink the
whole thing...  But what to do with all these?  I doubt libraries would even
want them anymore.
That makes two of us, Ed, along with every brochure from every new car show I've been to, stuff sent in the
mail about new models, and even some old magazines I purchased off eBay! My collection also goes back
to the mid-70's (I think my earliest one purchased is a Motor Trend or Car Craft from 1971). 

As far as current stuff, I have been getting Car and Driver since the early 80's, continuously. I also get Motor
Trend (it was like $10 for 3 years!) mainly because they actually have a lot of stuff about cars. But their 
pictures drive me crazy. In their feature stories, they rarely have pictures of the car actually standing still.
Instead, they get all arty and have pictures of the cars moving (blurred), bizarro angles (like from someone
lying under the car and shooting the lower rear corner of the car, up towards the taillight) or a tops-down
view. So that subscription will be done when it lapses. I also get Classic Motorsports and a couple of 
MG enthusiast magazines from club memberships. Oh, and AARP magazine, of course. ;-)

I mostly look forward to receiving the Moss Motors MGB catalog, and enjoy poring over that, thinking that 
some day I might get back to restoring my '65 MGB.
