RIB International had deteriorated in quality, and was in danger of becoming a cross between Hello Magazine and Car Magazine (eg. The Montgomery-Swanns take the New Range Rover to Brittany for a long weekind - read about what a lovely time they had...) and much of the rest of the magazine was shameless advertorials - pointed out to the less streetwise amongst us (like me!) by a former publisher.

John Kennett did an interesting poll: RIB International
and Hugo did some earlier stuff here: Contributions to RIB International
