I love CAR. I live in the U.S., too, and I have to go to the Newstand to find it. Suprizingly, it sells out quite fast else where. I try to read the articles, but all this U.K. humor and words are hard to understand. I picked up an issue recently, and had something on the Enzo:

"The boot is small, and can really only carry a box of fags..."

I seriously when crazy on that one. FAGS?!? Someone told me later it meant cigarettes, and I felt releaved. Then I realized how small of a trunck space that is, and went crazy again.

EVO rules. Itís a lot more focused on performance cars than CAR, plus the photography and writing are streets ahead, imho

yeah, its from the UK. its the best car magazine if you like the european cars too. its 10.00 an issue (without subscription), so im glad it only comes out once a month. the only place around here (suburb of minneapolis), and thats barnes and noble. i think its the most in depth auto magazine out there. its probably my favorite auto magazine.

here is a lesson on english(UK)-english(US) translations:
boot=trunk
bonnet=hood
windscreen=windshield
tyre=tire
saloon=sedan
estate=wagon
4X4=suv (of course)
chips=fries
lift=elevator
fags=cigarettes

hopefully this course has improved your use of "the Queen's English". now you dont have to fear going to england and have the minor inconvieniance of using the wrong word.
