    I know this happened several months ago, but I had subscribed to a magazine that covered racing. Now, instead I get a rag that's not worth the effort to go out to the recycling bin in my garage.

    Granted, in my younger years, I did have a subscription to both Car & Driver and Road and Track, because back then, they did cover racing (God Bless Brock Yates, and May He RIP). Haven't picked up either one, even waiting in a barber shop for a haircut, because their coverage of racing diminished over time until it was finally just a column on the very last page.

    And lucky me, Car & Driver has extended my subscription beyond the original expiration date!

    Anyone else feeling this way, or am I alone on my island?

    I quit getting all magazines in the past year. I used to like Sports Illustrated but unless it's the NFL, NFL offseason or college football then they don't give a flip about any other sport. I used to get NASCAR Illustrated but they went to crap around 2005 or 2006.

    There hasn't been a good NASCAR mag. since Winston Cup Scene, always looked forward to every week when it came. Best up to date information, always good articles and best of all it was weekly.

    If it was a good one it takes 38 Super. I got rid of all magazines besides my golf ones. Such a disappointment these days. They get thinner and thinner and most are mainly ads anwyways.

    It was sad to see NASCAR Scene go away. But yeah, I'm with you on the Road & Track switch with NASCAR Illustrated. Whoever made that deal is a ----bleep----, there is no racing coverage in C&D, so how do you justify that move?!? I tried to get my subscription refunded, but all I got was a 800 number to call. Figured it wasn't worth the trouble, so the magazine comes in, I flip through it, and it goes to the recycle pile.

    Racing Milestones was my go-to magazine from the time I started watching NASCAR in 2002 until they folded in 2008 or 2009. I think I have every issue from 2003-2008 or 2009. It was really cool as a kid when I didn't have the access through the internet that I do now.
