    Default Corvette Quarterly Magazine Going on Hiatus

    Corvette Quarterly, General Motors' official publication for Corvette owners, is apparently going through some changes. According to a posting at the top of the magazine's web site, the publisher will not be printing spring or summer editions. The official quote:

    Because we value the readers of Corvette Quarterly, we are taking some time to make Corvette Quarterly the best source of Corvette news available. As part of this process, we will not publish our spring and summer issues for 2009. But please check the website often to find the latest news on Corvette and information on the magazine.

    Thank you! Your Corvette Quarterly Team

    We contacted Jerry Burton at Corvette Quarterly about this and here's what he had to say:

    Hi Rob,
    While economics are certainly an issue with everything at GM these days, Chevrolet feels it's wise at this point in time to use the research to determine the best way to move forward on communicating news and information about the Corvette. So we encourage everyone to fill out the survey. A decision on where to go from here will come out of that research.
    Thanks,
    Jerry Burton

    Rob,
    When I bought my 07, I recieved a free 3year subscription to Corvette Quarterly. I recieved a letter in the mail yesterday, from Corvette Quarterly, stating basically what you have posted but also including a website to take a survey. I haven't done that yet, so I can't tell you what it's about.
    I'll post again when I take the survey. I take it as the survey is for them to better the magazine??

    I paid for my subscription and already got a $30.00 rebate check from them, pretty decent in my opinion.

    Chris,
    I too got a free three year subscription, and received the letter from CQ over the weekend. I believe the survey is intended to get reader preferences on things like appropriate amount and placement of advertising, a print publication, and email publication, or a website, and what types of articles readers would most like to see.

    That said, be prepared for what seems like a non-sequitor from the people hosting the survey form itself. They ask what kind of car you drive (I guess this is because a certain amount of subscribers may not actually be Corvette owners), and then ask you questions like how frequently you visit GM/Chevrolet dealerships for service on your Corvette, and how frequently you take you Corvette to have the tires rotated.


    CQ probably should have read over that survey a little more carefully.

    Corvette Quarterly: Retooling or headed for junkyard?

    Los Angeles Times

    Corvette owners will have one less place to read about their favorite car — at least for the next six months.

    Corvette Quarterly, the in-house magazine aimed at fans of the iconic Chevrolet sports car, recently told readers it would not publish its spring and summer issues.

    According to a message on the magazine’s website, “we are taking some time to make Corvette Quarterly the best source of Corvette news available.”

    That hinted that the magazine, which claims a circulation of 250,000, could return some day. But given the financial woes facing Chevy’s parent General Motors, some Corvette fans were concerned that Corvette Quarterly may never return, or that if it does, it would be only as an online publication.

    New Corvette buyers got the magazine free for three years. Other enthusiasts paid $33.95 for a three-year subscription. GM sent refunds to paying subscribers — another clue that the hard-copy CQ may be an endangered species.

    Its demise wouldn’t be lamented by all Corvette buffs. Noland Adams, a Corvette expert and former president of the Solid Axle Corvette Club in North Highlands, Calif., said the magazine appealed mainly to owners of newer Corvette models, not the classics that Adams and his colleagues prefer.

    “It’s mostly news about the new Corvettes. That’s what they’re interested in publicizing,” Noland said. “To my group, Corvette Quarterly is kind of a lost cause.”
