I am (was) subscribed to Car Craft magazine and received a letter today that it was no longer going to be published and received a code for a digital subscription to other TEN Publishing magazines and a free 6 months to Motor Trend on Demand.

Sucks that this is happening in general to print magazines and newspapers. I enjoyed the convenience of not having to use an electronic device to read about cars. I watch enough television and look at my phone enough as it is, it was healthy to still look at something in print.

I remember Car Craft and Super Chevy, was subscribed to one or both. Then again, haven't been in a couple of decades; really not a surprise that they are biting the dust--times change, print is on its way out.

Wow! I am surprised that "Automobile" is on that list. I remember when David E. Davis left Car & Driver to start that one. I was once a subscriber (and even got a tour of the offices in Ann Arbor - long story) and liked it very much.

I was once an avid reader of "Car Craft" as well.

Just got the news that 'Motorcyclist" is ceasing all publication. I have been reading that one for decades as well. Peter Egan was a fixture on its (and R&T) pages...

Nobody reads anymore, or, I should say, reads magazines anymore...

I subscribed to Motor Trend for thirty some years because it carried very well written technical articles and new products, but the magazine changed and I finally couldn't relate to the vehicles they wrote about. Now I won't even take their $6.00 a year offer. Not for me anymore guys.

Yeah, newspapers and magazines are disappearing. Cutting down trees, beating them to pulp, rolling them up, printing on them and then shipping them to retailers and people just isn't an efficient and popular delivery of information any more.

I loved reading Car Craft and am super bummed that it will no longer be published. I like magazines for bathroom reading, and using my iPhone just isn't the same.

With all due respect, you are in error.

I read a lot and have since I was a pre-teen. And it definitely helped me to do well in school.

And I still read a lot, especially “periodicals” (magazines), the home delivered Wall Street Journal, and old school “books” (those items on the shelves at the public libraries and what remains on the shelves at brick and mortar bookstores).

It gets me away from the idiot box (television, in general), the iPhone, and the iPad.

Back to the focused topic.

Autoweek no longer exists in a magazine format as of mid-December.

Unfortunately.

It’s online only.

I agree with this. I used to subscribe to half a dozen magazines, including Maxim (late teens, early 20s), Men's Health, Game Informer, as well as a bunch of more technical rags. I much prefer to pay providers for their content online nowadays.

Younger folks like to watch YouTube videos and don’t read magazines.

I did subscribe to a few magazines in the 80’s and 90’s.

I think Autoweek is dead, even online. Their home page for news and lead articles has been the same for over a week now.

I used to subscribe to "Hot Rod" off and on when it was $5/year. The ads for viagra and the photos of white-haired geezers showed that it has transferred into a nostalgia magazine for those over-the-hill.

The tech articles were decent and they're making occasional nods to cool cars outside of their core mandate.

It's nice to have a few magazines around in case the power goes out, but they don't even have to be new!

I read Car and Driver/Road and Track/Sports Car Graphic all through high school and beyond but it was Playboy magazine that really juiced my reading comprehension. smirk

I said goodbye to paper Car Craft a few years ago and have it on my IPad from ZINIO. The word “ Publish” is changing. It means giving out information and used to always involve print. Not any more. PS: some of the new tablets don’t weigh much more than few magazines.
