I was thinking of getting a subscription to a Mustang magazine and was wondering what everyone else found most useful for vintage Mustangs.

I've subscribed to Mustangs and Fords for a couple years. The articles are mostly just blatent promotion of their advertisers, but it's cheap. I recently subscribed to Mustang Illustrated. I've only received two issues so far, but it seams a little better. Overall, I'm not very happy with the Mustang/Ford only mag's. You can get some pretty good tech articles from FORDMUSCLE.com. Better, I think, than either of those magazines. JMHO

Mustang Illustrated (seems to be geared to the racing crowd)

Mustang Monthly

I had Mustangs and Fast Fords but it did not have enough classic stuff for me to renew.

I receive MMonthly and mustangs & fords. Although I'm an original guy (like my cars original on the outside), MMonthly is very boring and predictable to me - and I'm considering not renewing. On the other hand, Mustangs & Fords is an exciting rag that gives me the best of all worlds - mustand/ford/merc restos, restomods and great go-fast tech articles. It's my favorite.

70 Mach 1 (351C 4V 4-speed) I've been restoring since '96. 95% complete. Also have a '68 HT (289 2-speed) that I restored between '97-98 and is FOR SALE! The VMF has proven to be an invaluable resource for information, humor and excellent advice.

I like Mustang Illustrated and Mustang Monthly. I've never had any problems with not recieving subscriptions either.

One mag I really like is HotRod. I think they have some of the best tech articles out there.

I used to have subscriptions to all these magazines, even Mustang Times. However I have not renewed any of them. I get more from this site and others like it... as far as magazines I generally buy 1 or 2 Street Rodder type magazines now based on the articles and the advertisers (products I'm looking for).

I'm into hot rodding and restomod. I get Hot Rod ( when they have a cheap come on ) Car Craft, 5.0, MuscleMuastang and FastFords and Mustangs & Fords. I don't get M.M or M.I because I use to get them and grew tired and bored from old recycled articles and high prices. Sorry I'm not into seeing "correct detailing of glove door latches". If I see another dirt common 65-66 "c" code coupe, restored with chalk marks and stickers, I'll barf!

Over the past thirty years or so I think I've subscribed to them all. What I subscribe to depends on my changing interest. My favorite of all times was Autoweek when it was printed on newsprint. My most recent expired subscription was to Mustang Illustrated. Most of my newstand purchases range from Mustangs & Fords, to Car Craft, to Mustang Illustrated, etc. depends on finding an interesting article I wish to keep.

I have tried cutting articles out and tossing the mag, but that is alot of work. Thusly I have boxes of mags I need to toss.

It all depends on your interest. I have taken all the Mustang related magazines for years, Mustang Monthly, Mustang Illustrated, Mustang and Ford, Super Ford, etc. They are all full of interesting information at times and they all are loaded with stuff that I have no interest in. It is fun to find the errors that the so called experts publish. It really is your call and depends on your particular interest.

I read Mustang & Fords, Super Rod, Car Craft, Muscle Car Review, 5.0 and Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords. My primary interests are well written tech articles and modified cars. However, it's rare to read about restoration costs associated with these projects.

I subscribe to Mustang Monthly and Mustang & Fords. I have bought Mustang Illustrated and I'm thinking about subscribing to that also. You never know where you'll get an article that pertains to what you're doing to your own Stang. Some of the best information and advice I have found has been on this forum.
Thanks everybody,
Bob

I get both Mustang Monthly, and Mustangs and Fords!!! I like them both, and renewed for 3 years. Mustangs and Ford has a lot of restomod stuff, which is what I'm into!!
