Pretty hard to beat Mustang Monthly. They have a great how to section, check out their website. I looked at the news stand selections for about 4 months before I decided but it all depends what your interests are. Mine is classic mustangs. Also take a look at Modified Mustangs & Fords.

Mustang monthly covers all years but is definitely more focused on classics. 5.0 covers fox and later platforms and mm&ff covers mainly sn-95 and newer. They each have their own focus.

Been a Mustang Monthly subscriber since 1986. I went on ebay about 8 years ago and found a guy who had the early ones. Now I have come full circle...I have every issue of Mustang Monthly since they started back in February 1978. Over 34 years and over 400 consecutive issues. Great reading material.

I forgot to mention, my '69 mach1 is in the June 1994 issue of Mustang Monthly.....Great Honor.

Mustang Monthly can get repetitive. And they some mistakes with wrong information now and then. But all the other magazines I've seen are all about selling aftermarket parts. So, yeah. I also like Mustang Monthly. You pretty much have to subscribe these days. I no longer see it on any newsstands.

All of the mags are also currently available through google play magazines if you have an Android tablet. 19.99 year. Searchable and I dont have to worry about the kids tearing them up like with the paper copies.

Mustang monthly for the how to articles, Modified mustang and Ford for the cars. Seeing restored to original mustangs are snoozers, seen one you've seen them all. Unless that's your thing.

Thanks for the kind words qwk66. We show our '67(occasional driven) and '69(concours driven), but we do drive both of them. The '67 is actually more fun to drive than the '69, The'67 has P/S, '69 don't....LOL. Both are factory restored and the '69 Mach didn't come with P/S.

Just one mans opinion, I gave up on Mustang magazines a few years ago. Most are nothing more than long form advertising.

This forum along with High Performance Technical Content - Ford Tech - FordMuscle, will get you 99.99% of the information you need. The monthly pubs are just too repetitive and really don't bring much to the table.

Zinio subscriptions are dirt cheap compared to paper copies. I have Mustang monthly, Hot Rod, Motor Trend. They just offered me a $5 renewal on Motor Trend. I use Zinio on my iPad.
