Sounds like maybe it was a one-and-done deal for the new publisher. The website is turned off.

I'm sure Eberg will pop up somewhere. I switched to Hot Rod Network when MA blew up. It is a better deal for me anyway. Much better website so articles get more eyeballs and they pay better. HR also hosts video which MA refused to do so now I can shoot a video to go along with the article and post it on the website. Couldn't do that before. I was hoping the new publisher would drag MA into the modern era but sounds like something blew up in the process.

I should have gone with my gut feeling & walked away when subscribing to MA @ the NATS,never had a subscription before & I guess I still don't I call BS on this one.

Here's the deal, at least as much as I know:

Gromer (editor) got into some kind of ruckus with the new publisher. The upshot: They simply pulled the plug unceremoniously. No one at the publisher will answer any of my phone calls or e-mail -- 100% stonewall.

It appears that they are NOT mailing the current issue to subscribers. I really dislike that because I, personally, was told to tell everybody at the Nats that new and current subscribers would be 100% protected, so this reflects badly on me, but there's not a single thing I can do about it.

The person who made the unilateral decision to kill it is:

AMG Parade:
Tracey Altman, exec. VP (NY)
taltman@amgparade.com
212-478-1916
Cell: 917-626-8027

If you have been screwed or have any other issues, have at it.

I am not at liberty to discuss details yet, but it appears that my tech drivel will be appearing in another print (and online) publication soon.

Thanks,

Rick Ehrenberg

I'm sending a polite email to Tracy in hopes things change.
BTW, here's Tracy, she's VP of Sales and Marketing.

Good job on the contact info Rick. People like that don't want to hear from customers directly as its easier to hide behind a phone or expect someone else to drop the bad news bomb. Maybe this will improve said persons people skills.

What a convoluted mess. I love the magazine and appreciate all their work. What the hell is going on though? Harris publishing just drops them like a hot brick, then the same thing happens again? What are we not being told?

Harris didn't drop MA. Harris went under entirely.

Yes, Harris lost the distribution of the magazines to the stores and then decided to close up shop.

AMG Parade with Tracey Altman, taltman@amgparade.com in charge
Picked up the magazine and was going to continue?

But she had a problem with the web site www.moparaction.com

She wanted parts removed, thought they were "inappropriate" but she did not want to pay to keep any of the site running.

I know Cliff Gromer was trying to keep the web site active, And was not having any luck. Lot of tech and story ideas come from the web site.

That was last I knew when they stopped paying me to maintain the Mopar Action Web Site.

And they took the whole site done a few weeks later.

Now with Rick's update I see Cliff is gone now also down

If you end up at MCG or another mag for that matter it would be a big plus for them. Maybe R Wolf could do away with his Enviro-Masochism rants and free up more pages for your tech if you end up at MCG.

laugh2 lots of luck with rob and his rants........ and yes, i read each and every one. if he truly wants to make a difference, i believe his diplomatic skills need some brushing up, as well as a few more sources of information to be used before an opinion is formed. stirthepot

Fire the Pontiac guy, hire Gromer and Enrenberg to fix that rag. Give them whatever they want, otherwise that's the next one to go.

I subscribed to all the mopar mags for a while. I let MCG expire quite a while ago and I never renewed. I still get MM and Chrysler Power and MA while it was around.
