street Commodores magazine let down...

After reading a post on this website that a Maatouks car ARSONL was going to be featured in their magazine. I drove to the news agency and picked up a copy with a smile on my face and could not wait to get home and read the article on a tuff VL Turbo. I felt like a teenager again and was so excited to read some quality information about ARSONL.

Too say I was disappointed is a understatement! After reading the article I felt like a 12 year old had written it! No decent information on the car what so ever! What the hell is going on over at street Commodores?

I guess a few people wont like this post but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.

What does everyone else think about the quality of the write ups in SC magazine at present?

I thought exactly the same thing. Plus the magazine had about as many pages in it as a kmart catalogue

They have to write to the lowest common denominator.. the average 12 year old that reads Street Commodores.

This is the quality of journalism these days.
Universities are a business churning out below standard graduates.

It has nothing to do with the Universities.

The salaries involved are not likely to attract journalists.

That's a pretty wild assumption that anyone that works there is university qualified...

I love the mag and what it stands for but quolity seems to be dropping I would take the people's feedback with a grain of salt and consider what we are saying as consumer feedback.

The pics seem to be almost screen shot quality in some cases.
To put this into co text..

Don't know about the rest of Aust but here in WA we get a 3 in one pack for around $12 inc Pilbara tax. Any way it's usually recycled stuff but the quolity is crap. I'd rather quolity over quantity.

This could be just be the times are a changin and the Internet but **** that ****. If the mag is a good read and has a poster and vls I'll buy it without hesitation.

Sad to look at this mag as just another generic moneymaker for 12 yo's
