I would like to know witch magazine you think would be the most
I do not want to subscibe to a bunch of mags that will end up just laying
I just want to subscrfibe to 1 mag...
Thanks in advance...
Oh by the way for all of you that have a C5 with stripped out gears in your
head light motors here is a guy that makes the gears out of brass on a CNC
machine (These won't strip) look under electrical then C5 head light brass
I get Vette magazine and it's not for me. Mostly about very expensive
upgrades to C5's and C6's (i.e. 1000 hp LS6, drag racers, etc.) Very
little informative how-to articles and restoration for anything older
than a C4. They only feature over-modified C3's and the only C2/C1's
I've seen have had C5 chassis! Not for the common C3 owner (me) who
just wants to keep his car running, make it look nice and improve it a
bit over stock condition. I'm going to try Corvette Fever next.
=================I subscribe to Vette, Corvette Fever, Corvette Magazine, and Corvette
Enthusiast ....along with several other Car Magazines..
BUT when reading ANY of them there is NO WAY to tell which one I am
reading....That is they are all the pretty much the same....
Corvette Cars & Parts (now Corvette Enthusiast) is my favorite
followed my Corvette Magazine... But as I said there is so little
difference between one and the other it really makes no difference..
So Flip a Coin !
Just my opinion...
All 3 have way to many advertisements and uninteresting writeups such as
how some guy took his bone stock 1977 on a long trip thru the
Appalachian Mountains for two weeks listening to the steady exhaust hum
while averaging 20 mpg . Having a 1970 BB, i find Chevy Hi Perf. and
CarCraft more informative and useful.

What is your opinion of the new Car Craft makeover? Personally I like
the old magazine better, but I saw it changing about a year ago. They
used to have good articles like how to supercharge your car with a
vacuum cleaner and a roll of duct tape and whatnot. Now they tend
toward a lot of higher end stuff.
How many people need to know how to dump an LS1 into a muscle car? I
have no use for the professional racing news, and lately all of the
feature cars have undisclosed costs to build.
Their logo used to have "cheap" in it, now it has "loud". Maybe
that's the philosophy...
Do you want polite or do you want sincere?

I like the new makeover...... Ole Friburger takes some pretty decent
close up shots for headers and some interesting photos to accent
the articles... And I like his style..
Car Craft is still for the budget guy to an extent and Hot Rod still for
the upper end
for the most part. But I know what you are saying...

Reply: I like the older version better with Motor Buildups and Tech
writeups. I too dont care at all about professional nascar racing and
