 Becky,
  it's not Motor Trend magazine, It's  Motor Trend Classic magazine. reread the first post on this thread , yes they are two separate magazines. Don't choke on the Mocha when you see the newstand price though :surprised:

Joe,
      No need to be snotty. I won't be "choking" on anything. I do stand corrected on the Classic part of the equation. This is not a magazine I normally look for so cut me some slack. >:(

Ms Becky,
  I hope you never have to choke on anything, but I was kidding anyway. I just went out and bought this at Borders , paid $15.00 plus tax! This is a High quality paper, high resolution image magazine, and it's not published every month.
 So I'll wave my Latte hanky (not embroidered) of Peace, and Hope that my literary Spurs aren't too sharp on the Hides of the group.

I can't find Motor Trend Classic on the local shelves so... going to order it online

https://www.circsource.com/store/Subscribe.html?magazineId=239&sourceCode=I0DBNN

looks like you can order just the one issue if desired, or subscribe for the 4 issues per year

and at the bottom is a special offer for Motor Trend for $10 for a year subscription

It's all about the Pintos! Baby!

Yes, I was also surprised at that - yecch!

Otherwise, a well written and organized presentation, colorful detailed pics, and interesting facts. Loved how clean the Pinto was, esp. the engine compartment!!

Thank you guys for all the positive comments on the car! It was a great time with the other owners and M/T magazine people. The car really showed well in the pictures, and the rain (crappy as it was) helped the pictures pop off the page. Again THANKS for buying the magazine!

FINALLY found the magazine (very pricey) and liked the article in question. Why MT chose the Vega as '71 Car Of The Year is a (ahem) crapshoot, but reading the whole article, the car with the most wrong with it by far was Chevy's contribution! Why the yahoo who, in 1972, opined with, "Which car is best? Vega." is, or was, drunk with the kosmic Kool-Aid. I do wish the article showed the different models of the Pinto, Vega, and Gremlin. Note: Pintos came with hatchbacks in '71, contrary to what the article claims. The liftgate looked different but it was still a liftgate and called a Runabout. Correct me if I'm wrong on this. ;)
