fyi, there are a lot less great stories and cars out there during this quarantinre, magazines seem to have shut down reporters.

What impact has that had on blogging about cars?

Well, Hot Rod magazine seems to have parted with its freelancers, as they fired full time staff decades ago when the Motor Trend and Hot Rod magazine company became an investment to profit from instead of a company to improve. Robert Petersen built it up, sold it off, and it's been going downhill since the late 80s with that brief wonderful era from 2004-2012

Anyway, if you go to Hotrod.com you'll see it's dead, I just did. Looks like it's focused on promoting online shows instead of featuring hot rods.
