What does "English" mean here? The English language, or published only in England? JIP | Talk 07:02, 30 May 2006 (UTC)


It was published in england (but was available in usa and other european and asian countries) tali aug 06

It was available in the rest of the UK as well :-). Letdorf (talk) 01:40, 17 January 2009 (UTC).

Is this the magazine founded by Hearst in 1903[1] or are they different publications? Drutt (talk) 01:52, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

There appear to be three different publications with this name, an American one, a British one, and an Australian. To add to the confusion, the American publication was also released in various foreign editions. Drutt (talk) 11:49, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Pretty sure this one is unrelated to Hearst's magazine, though they both seem to have been founded in 1903. Letdorf (talk) 11:34, 19 April 2010 (UTC).

Hearst's magazineEdit

Hearst had MOTOR magazine and it also published MOTOR'S Auto Repair Manual. Some time in the early 1970's the name was changed to MOTOR Auto Repair Manual, that's how it is on the 1975 38th Edition. MOTOR Magazine is still published in print and online. Bizzybody (talk) 09:53, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Here is the website of the Hearst publication. The existence of this magazine should be mentioned somewhere in order to reduce confusion. Drutt (talk) 17:14, 19 June 2010 (UTC)
Okay I've added a passing mention of it. Letdorf (talk) 13:14, 21 June 2010 (UTC).
