We've decided to take the next step.

A page is now posted so you can sign up to monitor the development of SUBIESPORT Magazine. Even if you're only moderately interested, please sign up so we can show potential advertisers the strong support we know is here!

http://www.drivingsp...com/subiesport/

This list will *only* be used for major updates (such as calls for modified Subarus to consider profiling in the mag, letting everyone know when subscriptions are available, etc.) and will not be sold or shared with advertisers.

Thanks,

Ryan Douthit, Publisher
Midnight Cafe Media, LLC

Pretty much what everybody else said, I'd be in if the older generation Soobs were included.

Old school, old school, old school. If I want to see new subarus, I can look at ads in magazines.

Don't worry. We dig the old school too.

I'll double the cool, and add - if there is an e-zine edition, it would be a cool link to the board.

Ryan,

I'll cast my vote to a 'zine that would include and profile older generations.

Call it the "lasting benefit of legacy ( ! ) Subaru products" or such.

While I wonder, maybe dream of someday owning a later model (2000ish) decked-out Outback/Legacy Wagon to use for cross-country touring, I'm so impressed at the use we get out of our "more mature" Subies.

Having put similar-in-scope projects together in the past, I can begin to realize all the variables you're probably facing, from target market to "the look."

I'll keep an eye out for your premier/comp issue!

Just visited your site and put myself on your list. I'll be getting a subscription as soon as they are available. I totally agree with others here, that it's about time something like this was done. A layout with 50/50 coverage of old/new Subarus, How To/Tech sections, Readers Rides, Classifieds, Meets/Events schedule, and of course, gotta have the "OOPS!" section.

god, i am excited for this.
can you imagine a nationalally published mag that includes old subies as being "cool"!
maybe we will finally get some real aftermarket support from the publicity!


i signed up for the email thing. i will definatly be getting a subscription when its available.

I'm down for a subscription. My ONLY concern is the price of the magazine. How much are we looking at? :( I'm not talking about final price but a round-a-bout price range your company has in mind

Tentatively we're looking at 4.99 newsstand or $19.99 subscription (6-issues)...there'll be an official announcement made next week.

;)
