Put on your thinking caps. I have a collection of car magazines going back to the early 60s including the English Autocar (Comp Press/Autoweek, R&T, C&D, NYR Regional Review, etc). I'm not going to spend a lot of time listing them individually on eBay for a couple of bucks each, but an loathe just to put them in the recycle bin. If you live in S. FL and want an issue or so, come over and find it. Anyone got an idea who might like this as a donation? I tried the museum at the Glen, but they didn't even answer my email. It's just taking up unneeded room, but I hate the thought of throwing it out.

How about contacting some of the guys who are selling similar items on eBay and offering the magazines as a batch and let them piecemeal the collection out?

Harold,

Vets in a VA hospital will wear these out.

Harold, just drop them off in the lobby of the VA Hospital there in Palm Beach Gardens. We take magazines and paper back books to the VA here in Asheville all the time. We've been thanked many times for this. We even drop off our past issues of Sports Car Magazine.

This is a little thing that any of us can do for our veterans.

This also works in hospital lobbies and cancer chemo wards...there are never any car, bike mags in there.

Harold -

I know two people who work at the Glen museum. Want me to reach out to them directly?
