    In my latest issue of PHR it appears it will be the last one :whine: Shame as I thought it was the best magazine out of all of them regarding how-to's and engine tech. Disappointed for sure.

    Yup, this was covered in a thread about a month ago. Something like 21 magazines lost their lives last month including PHR, Classic Trucks, and many others.:(

    I just got my last issue of PHR. I want to know what they're going to do about my subscription :(

    PHR's project G/28 is what motivated me to buy a 2nd gen Camaro

    They will continue your subscription but to another magazine. That happened to me several years ago. I just started getting Cosmoplolitan magazine. I know one thing, women who complain about men's magazines are hypocrites.

    PHR subscribers will be transferred to Hot Rod.

    Print media is dying due to similar info on the internet. Quality is also suffering both in print and online media.

    If you buy a newspaper, there's X amount of articles in it. Since you bought the paper, you're more likely to read something in it because its there and you paid.

    If you go to the newspaper's site (or google or whatever), you're more likely to only click the articles that are interesting or sensational.

    Also, the writing/grammar/proofreading/editing on the internet are horrific. People that can't read or write are writing crap. People reading crap are learning that crap is ok.

    Bad.

    It's funny, I just went onto the PHR website to look at a tech article and there is an ad up for a 12 issue subscription to PHR, with digital editions available!
