Right now, as I write this, downtown Falmouth is bustling with the “Dream Cruise by the Sea” car show. Cars of many makes, models, years and colors are on display with hoods open, tops down and chrome gleaming in the sunlight. Proud owners and car buffs of all ages are giving information, swapping stories and sharing their love of automobiles. Want to make that good time last beyond the end of the show? Come to the library and see what we have for car magazines in the reading room. Back issues can be checked out, but the current issue needs to be read in the library. We have …
Car & Driver
One of the most popular car magazines out there with well written articles, reviews and humor! The September issue has a 56 page special section on new cars for 2012.
Hemmings Motor News
I posted a blog about this magazine last December. It is the “world’s largest collector-car marketplace.”
Hot Rod (in the Teen Room)
Lots of great photos of hot rods all tricked out for performance and splash, as well as articles with tips and techniques for doing it yourself.
Another popular car magazine, responsible for the “highly coveted ‘Motor Trend Car of the Year Award’”. It contains reviews with first tests, long-term tests and side-by-side comparisons, specs, test data and lots more.
This magazine is not just about cars, it also covers what’s new in mechanics in the fields of science, technology, aerospace, home, boating, electronics, photography and telecommunications. Learn about the latest developments here.
Road & Track
Probably the oldest car magazine in print (since 1947), Road & Track covers all types of cars. It features road tests, technical & styling analyses and races.
