I don't understand the distinction between terms, as far as what is from where or where it's sales money goes. Any more than I understand racial distinctions. Perhaps we should hyphenate country of part origin like we do people race titles. If that would appease those who "do".

I quit magazines a long time ago. Before quitting TV. Because nothing shown applied to my hobby anymore or appealed to my interest. Nothing affordable for me discussed, and anything in print certainly is no longer "news" unless you like it aged.

I won't bash Hemmings because in recent years it has been with their assistance that the shop I work at has entered fresh rides in the SEMA show. I just fix old cars for a living but am appreciative for that.

As I stated Hemming’s combined the failed foreign crap periodical with the successful one. When over 1/4 of the magazine (August issue) is dedicated to foreign crap it exceeds my tolerance of “some”. I’ll bet there are silent majority that do not find the foreign stuff beneficial nor interesting. And the result will be reduced subscriptions.

Some interesting responses, some a bit off topic, but because the magazine has changed some of it’s direction like I stated my subscription stops.
