Anyone else suddenly get this without asking? I haven't signed up for it...

Yes.

It doesn't bother me near as much as Corvette Quarterly though.

It's nothing but ads. I wouldn't consider it great.
Where the heck did they get my info from?

No telling - anything from a dealer to an independent shop.

When Texas Driver first started up, I was getting two copies of each issue for free for a long time.

Me, too-last night. Apparently, they, too, think our car costs more than it really does! Of course, almost all of the cars for sale in that magazine have no price listed by them, following the age-old "if you have to ask" dictum. I just flipped through it, oohing and ahhing until my wife said "I think I'd feel safer if you got a subscription to Playboy." Some of those ads for watches I'd never heard of, encrusted in diamonds, just made me giggle. The rich really are different from you and me...

I got one too. Whichever list it is, I'm on it too.

Maybe it's the "People with toy cars who live in Austin list".

Hmmm...wonder if Lotus gave our contact info away. That would seriously piss me off.

Every now and then when I'm waiting at an airport I flip thru one at a magazine stand, hoping that one day I'll find something interesting enough to buy it.
But so far it appears to me that it's just the auto trader for people that have some more pocket change...:shrug:

I got one in the mail yesterday, but I participated in the Palm Beach Supercar Weekend by displaying my car and they had my home addressi so I figured they gave it out.

However, I just looked and saw that I have a business card from the person who is Vice President of Sales from Dupont who I met at the event,(dont think I gave him my info, but I had about 10 free drinks from the Vodka company that was also a sponsor so my recollection is blurred) and I know I gave another magazine that was there my address so I would get free copies so maybe Dupont owns that magazine so that could be how I got mine.

I think that there is a law about disclosing your information to third parties, and you have to sign something to state if you dont want it done, so maybe
Lotus is selling our info unless we have specidfied that we dont want it done.
In any case I would rather recieve this type of "junk" mail than all of the other stuff that I get that I have no interest in.

I thought someone bought me a subscription just to rub in the fact that I won't be able to own a brand new F car for about 10 years.

I got an issue in the mail 2 days ago. I don't think it's tied to Lotus dealers as I bought my car off of a private seller. Can't figure out who...and how...they got my info.
