<VV> CORSA vs Collectible Automobile

It seems that one of the most popular and controversial topics in the  
Corvair world these days is the cost of CORSA membership.

I recently received a bill for my subscription to "Collectible  
Automobile".  A one-year, six issue subscription has a cover price of  
$59.70 ($9.95 each).  My special price is only $39.95!

If you've ever seen "Collectible Automobile", it is a gorgeous  
magazine.  Lots of great color photos and good articles on wonderful  
collector cars.  But forty bucks a year, for six issues, seems pretty  
steep.  I don't remember if I paid that much originally; maybe in a  
weak moment.  I haven't sent my check in yet and don't know if I am  
going too.

But it struck me that this is almost as much as CORSA dues are, for  
which I get twelve nice "magazines" and much more.  Now, I know some  
of you don't think the Communique is worth a hoot, but I do.  And I  
know some of you see no value in the other CORSA benefits, but I do.   
CORSA certainly seems to be worth forty-five dollars, compared to this  
beautiful magazine.

Just thought this was an interesting observation.
