New Shelby magazine


Captain Beyond

Recommended Posts

I jumped in my SGT after dinner and headed to a Wally World Super Center, two other grocery stores and Barnes & Nobel to no avail. The Barnes and Nobel magazine guy said they hadn't seen it yet :banghead:

 

Maybe Motor Trend needs to ship via Super Snake to get them here on time! :hysterical:

Did they do a good job with it?

 

 

It's a nice quality mag, but most of the articles are republished from past Shelby annuals. They do have some nice vintage road tests and articles from Motortrend though. The only bad thing is that it cost $13.99 :eek5:, but at least some of the proceeds go to the Carroll Shelby Foundation.

FYI, Our Barnes and Nobles does not have this yet. I found exactly 4 copies at Target and 4 copies at Walmart today. I thought it curious that they only had a few copies and I picked up 3 copies at first (One to put away, one to read to death and maybe cut up for various photos and one for a friend, until I saw the pricing on this magazine ($14 US and $18 Canada).

 

WOW! I was standing there in Target with $45 dollars of magazines in hand after tax. Uh, I don't think so! Pretty good magazine. A lot of rehashed stuff, but some good stuff and nice quality heavy paper stock. I bought one, will read it carefully and put it away.

Yeah, we found ours at our Local Wal-Mart here in Wisconsin. It is well done, and Love the Article Jay Leno had in there!! The great thing, during the quotes by Carroll, they didn't edit anything out! It is the true Carroll!!! Wonderful history throughout! :)

good find, bought the paper copy this morning :shift:

 

I saw the hard copy on Amazon, too. I'm ordering one.

 

I'm still on a quest for the soft cover, though. I went to 4 more grocery stores and a book/magazine shop this weekend to no avail. :banghead:

 

I see on another thread people in WI have found the soft copy. Maybe it still hasn't made it this far west yet. :tumbleweed:

found the soft cover at Kroger stores (plural) today. Did not find at Wally World over the weekend.

 

We have "Smith's" out here. Kroger bought them out several years ago but retained the name for local recognition. I went there Saturday, among other places. Went to 3 different Wally Worlds, too. Finally I went on e-day tonight and found a guy in TX who has 8 of 'em for sale. I ordered one for $12.99, including $4 for shipping. I don't know what the cover price is but I know I burned more than $4 in Shelby GT gas in my quest this past week.:doh:

 

It should be here Friday or Sat. :happy feet:

FYI: Apparently a hard cover edition of Motor Trend Shelby: A Tribute to an American Original is going to be published on September 25, 2012. I pre-ordered my copy for $18.71 plus shipping at Amazon:
