Brief Background

Since 1974, they have published over 1,500 total issues, sold nearly a billion copies of magazines, and sold, and saved, over 1 million cars for private sellers and classic car dealers alike. Over the years, Smith’s titles helped bring members of the hobby together, while also influencing others to join the classic car hobby through car clubs located all over the world, thousands of which they have donated to and/or helped launch. Most of these car clubs are non-profit organizations whose efforts include helping cancer, osteoporosis, and AIDS research, The Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Veterans organizations, 4-H programs, and Boy Scouts of America projects, as well as many other charity causes.
