THE JOYS OF LIFE

Car (South Africa) - - MAIL -

In these times, with all the jar­gon in the me­dia, there is less and less I look for­ward to read­ing. But then there is CAR. Around the mid­dle of every month, my sub­scriber copy ar­rives; if it doesn’t (thanks to our cur­rent postal ser­vice), I go down to the near­est book­shop to buy a copy be­cause I can­not wait to get it. Some­times it sur­pris­ingly ap­pears in the mail, too… The bonus is I now have two copies of my favourite mag­a­zine.

“Favourite.” That re­ally is the word. CAR al­lows me to es­cape from ev­ery­thing – the whole world – and in­dulge in the fan­tas­tic, the dy­namic, all the things un­known, the new, the speed, the most re­mark­able that hu­mankind can think of. Ac­tu­ally, there are not enough words to de­scribe what you peo­ple bring right in front of my eyes.

How many sto­ries I have re­peated about the amaz­ing things I have read in CAR. Where did you get the facts, they might ask me. The In­ter­net or Face­book? Nooooo, this is real … I read it in CAR. It si­lences them. This is the real thing. For 35 years, no one has ques­tioned me. They know: this guy reads CAR so he’s clued up. As my dear­est says, “The mo­ment he gets CAR, he is gone until he has read every word.”

Thank you for shar­ing this world with us, for be­ing the ut­most pro­fes­sion­als and true jour­nal­ists, for de­fend­ing print against dig­i­tal me­dia. It’s a mag­a­zine that is worth keep­ing for a life­time.

Keep it up! NIC KEYSER Coligny
