Because of the corona virus, I'm sorry to say
supplies of new issues have been temporarily suspended.until further notice.

As soon as we're back in action, I'll be straight on here to let you know.

To help fight the pangs of magazine starvation, I'm selling back issues of magazines
and books that I would normally have on display at the shows,
on the American Auto Mags Facebook page

 You have to scroll down a bit, but it's all there !!

If you've not been able to get out to the shops,
you may not have your April Classic American.
We've got some !!

If you're looking for an example of corporate bullying, how about this.
No advance notice, no warning, the publishers announced that
they were no longer producing print editions of these magazines.
your subscription was being changed to online - like it or not!

These are the last print issues of these particular titles. .

In it, I have listed all the ones I have in stock right now.
Tell me what you need.

If you want one, not listed, let me know and I'll get a price for you.

A little more bad news, Ratrod magazine has closed.
The good news is that they are planning a new one.

Although Lowrider is being pulled by the publishers, don't dismay,
help is at hand.  This mag, La Cultura, is scheduled as twice a year but hey,
it's a start.  Essentially one guy pursuing his passion.
Support him now and it can only get better ( more frequent).
Incidentally, remember BOMBS magazine?
Well Steven, the owner/publisher/editor unfortunately died last year.
That's the bad news, the good news is that it is coming back !!!
I'll keep you posted as I get more news.

13th December


With immediate effect the publishers are no longer printing
Car Craft, Chevy HP, Classic Trucks, Diesel Power,
Hot Rod Deluxe, Lowrider, Mopar Muscle, Muscle Car Review,

No warning, no notice, nothing.
When I checked with the distributor in the States, he said
I must be mistaken because he had the 2020 print schedules in front of him
During the last year particularly, business has been bad for a number of reasons,
but even though I've been losing money, there was always the hope that
the exchange rate would improve and there wouldn't be stuff stolen each week
now I'd changed shippers.  That hope  has now come crashing down.

What am I going to do about the existing subscribers, I don't know.
I don't have the resources to do refunds, I really don't know what to do right now.
Thinking cap on, in the next couple of weeks I'll get my head straight
and have a clearer picture.  I will, of course, then get back to you with some plan of action.
At this stage , all I can do is apologise for the situation we find ourselves in.

I do have some of the penultimate and final issues in now . . .
