Sadly, I had every issue of Classic Sixties, Muscle Car Review and Hemmings Machines up to 2018. I couldn't give them away. I checked with sellers at Big 3 and Pomona swap meets with no interest, even if I gave them to them. I wasn't going to spend endless time on eBay trying to sell them one at a time for who knows how long, so I tossed them all out. I was really disappointed to have saved them for so long thinking that someday someone else would want them as much as I did. I really wanted to keep them, but they just weren't worth the space they were taking up. And I couldn't justify paying for storage for who knows how long before they might be worth at least face value.

I had thousands of magazines. Just about any car mag from the seventies until recent. I called the guy that is in charge of the only automotive technical class still taught in High School around here. Asked him if he wanted them for his students. He did, so he sent some high school students over in a pickup truck. Three or four trips later, they were all gone. The students were in awe at the amount of mags. They were extremely grateful for them. Now I have to do something with the thousands of motorcycle mags that I still have. Some of them have nekid women in them, so the students aren't allowed to have them.

If you are coming to MCACN I would love the Muscle Car Review magazines.

I have 2000 magazines from 1960 to 1974 (the year I graduated High School and the year most cars went south). I do enjoy going through them on occasion.

You may want to check your local homeless shelter as they may want some of them for their residents.

Donate them to a library or tech school?

I sadly recycled about 1000 car magazines from my childhood fairly recently

My wife runs a very large outpatient mental health organization in Michigan and the male patients love free car magazines!

A good spot to drop some off is if you a VA facility near you. There are still a lot of Viet Nam aged vets in the system there and they love seeing these.
