I checked a couple of international newsstands that carry quite a few British mags with no luck. I couldn't even find a US distributor for the publisher, only direct subscription. When I subscribed to Motor and Autocar I dealt with an importer in the Midwest who often had back issues.
It looks like a £ 3.99 cover price; probably would be $ 10 ~12 in a stateside shop. If anyone can get them let me know where and how much.
