I too enjoy actually sitting down with a magazine in hand and reading it cover to cover. I spend all day in front of a computer at work, so the last thing I want to be doing is sitting down in front of a computer/ IPad or whatever at home, reading a magazine. No thanks. I'll keep my paper copies.
I have a bunch of magazine subscriptions and yes, some of them aren't the best, but it's not like they're massively expensive to have in print either. $6 a year for Motor Trend and Automobile. $10 a year for Hot Rod, $15 for Muscle Car Review and $18 for Hemmings Muscle (my personal favorite). Personally, I think that's pretty good value for money, especially since I can spend up to 2 hours reading each one.
Why would they change their tooling from the '69 kit? They make too much money off that kit to back date the Camaro model. Better off starting from scratch like Dean said. Wouldn't be a bad idea either. AMT's version is apparently pretty crappy.
