Which do you all prefer, Motor Trend or Road and Track? I'm getting fed up with Car and Driver'* anti-domesticism. They don't give them a fair chance most times.

Road and Track.

Motor Trend is all about the new "hype" and what'* 'cool'. Not what drives good. IMO.

I've got a subscription to Hot Rod, and damn, i can't put them down.

Try GM High-Tech Performance. They just recently did an article on Intense Racing.

Yea, Car and Driver is a little anit domestic. I like Motortrend, but Road and Track is cool also. I like their big pages.

road and track is not good at all. Maybe the only good thing is the last page with the funny captions

i heart motor trend and GMHTP

ive had a subscription to Motor Trend for six years now and it'* still great; they usually get the first test drives and have a great tuner section...

Car and Driver loves eupeon cars

also get Corvette Monthly, which is awsome!!!

Finally, two Ford magazines, 5.0 and Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords.

turbo > all... although every import mag nowadays is all about "Drifter 240 this, drifter 240 that." too cliche for me
