Behind the Scenes: Our Magazine Archive Goes Way Back

Sometimes Google doesn't always have the answer, and in those cases, we turn to our magazine archive. We have just about everything you could think of since car magazines were a thing.

Case in point, check out this issue of Road and Track from January of 1952:

Or how about this issue of Car & Driver from January of 1962:

How far back does your collection go back? Are there any issues that are particularly special to you?

Seems like we all have the same challenge...I sold off all my old issues of RC Car Action, old Lego magazines from when I was a kid, and of course the ususal C&D, Motor Trend, etc. magazines on Craigslist a few years ago. I was moving and just didn't have space for them anymore. There is some demand; my collections sold within days of being posted, though basically just for the cost of my time.

The only ones I kept were Grassroots and Classic Motorsports, actually. But I don't have infinite space, and eventually will need to find a new home for these, too.
