OVERVIEW
Road Test was published from 1965 to 1981 in Los Angeles California. The first publisher was Bill Quinn, and first editor was OCee Ritch. It appears Mr Quinn closed down Motor Sports Illustrated in November 1964, then used the same staff to create Road Test in December, 1964.

The magazine was essentially a buyers guide and published objective road test results on U.S. and foreign automobiles. This covered the range from up-scale sports cars to small economy cars. Each magazine had the following text in the opening pages, "Devoted to automobiles, other vehicles and automotive products, ROAD TEST is designed to present the complete facts about cars, trucks, accessories, equipment and automotive products without fear or favor." The intent was to be objective and become a trusted and authoritative source. Early issues indicated the magazine was not funded with advertising. However, it is uncertain if this continued through the entire publishing cycle.

Road Test started as a bi-monthly magazine and then switched to monthly in 1968. This continued until 1978 when there was a break in publishing. It restarted on an erratic bi-monthly schedule. It also went through multiple changes in publishers, editors and staff through its history.
