Road & Track has from what I have read lately, been trying to get back into the REAL car magazine business. Rather than the same article written in the same style with the same anecdotes going over and over and over whatever the new vehicle of the month their sponsors pay them to talk about, they've actually begun using their brain and begun writing STORIES that include cars and information about them.
One such example is linked here as R&T discusses both a new Audi and the greatest rally driver ever to come out of the US. A local (to me) boy, John Buffum still resides in Vermont and still runs a rally effort (Mitsubishi based). Glad to see him getting some always deserved publicity.
