Just what I need, a 1 page article with 3 pictures telling me how to put a LS1 in a 69 Camaro.

Honestly, I do have a few which are okay, but again the feature cars are usually so far over the top as compared to what I try and do. I mean, who is going to try and rebuild a 12 bolt from a few tiny b/w pics and some captions?

The recent "Best of Tech" was good. Has an in depth on how to tune carbs (Demon) as well as a whole Holley rebuild section that were pretty useful.

Which Mag's do you guys recommend? All I get now is Summit catalogs. Car & Driver is way too current for my taste. I'm looking for something to do with old fords 60's on. Any recommendations?

I get the most popular, Hot Rod, Car Craft and Chevyhip.
and Iīm going to give PopHotrodding a try.Most articles in these mags get repeated or with editororial musical chairs they take their favorites with them.

lousy editors.....the guy from Cart Craft moved to HOT ROD magazine and turned it into Car Craft II. Made me so mad I dropped my subscription and picked up Cars & Parts Magazine. This mag rocks, no make or model bias, the independent makes get as much coverage as the big three, and they show the buildup of things in episodes over months, so they can cover about everything. Last year (I forget the issues) they did a three month long cover on how to rebuild and tune a Rochester quadrajet. January's Issue had a '56 Lincoln droptop, a Hudson, and the history of buick, part I, in it. Plus it has a classified section and you're not gunna believe this one-there ISN'T a full page ad every other page! Check out Cars and Parts Online for more details. After reading a few issues of this mag, I'm done with the recycled stories that the big guys do.

i agree that alot of the cars, esp in pop hotrodding are way over the top. but when they have how to articles, especially with 3 pages of pics, it really helps. i think for me the best one is custom classic truck, they do have 3 pages of pics for say, replacing door window felt and rubber. but sometimes they lick butt when they have splattered over the top of the cover "todays latest trend:install 95 chevy chassis under your tri five" and you go to the article and it's just about a truck and they say he took the chassis to a shop to weld on new body mounts, and that's it!!? hey they are not do it yourself manuals. just dont expect them to be. learn what you can, see what's out there. if nothin else you'll get ideas for wheels and paint. as far as that one rod and custom mag. i hate that thing! it's a big catolog. but could be that's what you want. there is a magazine out there for every brand and kind of car. if you want a car/truck like that you need to pop for the 15/yr or whatever and get a subscription. besides, it gives you something to do on the crapper!

and maybe even mo important, like with the rod and custom, sometimes the ads will give you a place to find what it is you ar looking for.

best info

Thats funny, I just got advertisements in the mail for Street Rodder and ROD&Custom today. Neither of which I subscribe to. I get Car Craft in the mail and occasionally pick up a Hot Rod Mag. If I find a Street Rod Builder and if it is interesting I will buy it. You are right about the cars in the mags being over the top and then some?? Dosn't everyone have an extra $50k to throw at a rod project?? Thats the people these mags. want to help, not the back yard guys.

Do you notice if they do a rear axle upgrade they never
rebuild a junkyard orphan anymore.They always upgrade to the
custom diff and race axles and then pop over to some shop to get it done. "Deadlines"
Car Craft is my favorite, they still loon around some,donīt
take themselves too seriously.
