OVERVIEW

Muscle Car Classics was published by Petersen Publishing in Los Angeles, California. It started as a quarterly magazine in 1986 then switched to a bi-monthly schedule in January 1987. About a dozen or so other muscle car-focused magazines launched in the 1983 to 1988 timeframe.

The magazine used the traditional volume and serial number through April 1991, then from that point the cover page showed only the publication date. After the December 1992 issue, the title was changed to Muscle Car Restoration and Performance. Only three issues of the new title were published, and they are included below.

The title had many editors: Ron Cogan was the first editor through August, 1987; then Dave Fults through December, 1988; followed by Jim McGowan through February, 1990; replaced with Dev Anan through October 1990; and, finally, Jeff Tann from December 1990 through the name change and the end of publication in June 1993.
