I always use a virtual credit card number for magazine renewals. Virtual card number is only good for a few hours, long enough for them to process the renewal. When they go to auto-renew in a year or whenever it doesn't work. Only takes 3-4 minutes to generate the virtual card number.

I still have a few Hot Rod and Car Craft issues from back in the day. I used to have stacks and stacks of them. I finally went through and chose only those issues that had articles of interest, a lot of how to's. Eventually I went through them and realized that the how to tech was now out of date (installing Cleveland heads on your 289 etc.) and ended up narrowing it down to less than a dozen issues.
Thinking of doing the same with my Mustang Monthly.

I'm with Kelly on this one. It's my way of supporting the magazine, its writers and producers.

Plus, they put me on the on the cover for Sept '17.

Kelly almost drew me back in with that bit about supporting journalism but then....naw.

My claim to journalism as it pertains to MM, ......
In the December 1999, I submitted to Rob Aliberto (Beyond The Basics) my chronicles of installing a FuelSafe Fuel Cell and why I did it, for inclusion in an upcoming "How To Article".
I began the cell install in the Spring of 1999. Well to my surprise, it was published in the December 2000 MM mag on page 92 with the title of "Safety First". Looking back, I see it was my primitive first attempt at journalism.
My subscription paid for itself many times over with those "How To articles", especially when replacing floors, TQ boxes, leaky cowls etc. Now, YouTube is the new technology for learning.

I just subscribed for the first time in December. Found an online site that was doing magazine subscriptions for cheap. Got 2 yrs for around $31.
Prior to that I would pick up copies here and there, usually at the market or airport.
I just read this months editors column and it seems they are now adding back in Fox Bodies to the MM articles.
I would presume it was a marketing move to gain more readership.

I've got them back to the beginning- looked forward to them every month as a kid! Then came all their sister mags, along with the renewal ups, multitudeness of offers, etc. I actually renewed mine while at a car show(Goodguys I think?) and they screwed up. I paid for a year, but when my next issue came- it said I was good for the next 3, not 1! In the end, I think I actually got about 5 years worth of mags before they ended. I never got re-ups, just continued mags each month. In fairness, I did try to call them to figure it out, but they made it very easy to just concede and get them for free.... lol

I still have subscriptions to at least half a dozen magazines, and will until they stop doing print. I HATE on line digital magazines. I guess i'm a caveman lol.

I rather enjoy magazines, MM only being one, on the crapper. Many run less than $10/year.

back when i started reading car magazines, around 1970, there were real good tech tips and builds in them. and that kept up until the late 90s when all the magazines basically became not only paid advertisements in the articles, but so loaded with ads that they would break up articles way too often for my tastes.

LOL.... I have actually bought the print version AFTER seeing the digital version just so I could hold it in my hands and look without having to log in or have screen saver kick in.

So much easier to flip back and forth between pictures etc. Online, I usually end up with two our three browser sessions open with 5 tabs open on each screen.

Oh hell yeah. I gotta have that disc. I don't mind having a high-quality digital version for my phone (not MP3 crap), but the disc is the main source. And I buy several vinyl a year.
