Sports Car is a monthly magazine published by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). It is the official national magazine for SCCA racing and was started in 1944. More information on its history may be found here.
The early issues were titled as The Sportswagen. This title didn't work well, so the magazine was re-titled as Sports Car. Early issues were mimeographed, and the first issue with artwork was March/April 1946.
The publisher provided net paid circulation data to The Standard Periodical Directory from 1991 through 2003. Annual print production was reported to be around 110,000, but then it stair-stepped down to 76,200 print issues in the last five years.
The magazine was published starting in March, 1944 and continues to the present. However, only cover images from 1946 through 2000 are presently included. More will be added as they are available. We are missing 4 issues from 1946; Mar/Apr '48; and Nov/Dec '49.
An internet presence was created and links added to the front covers starting in January, 2000. www.scca.org
