Here are a few of mine. I have these in particular hanging in plastic bags on the walls of my garage. It's funny how over the years I would see something that I had in a magazine in the attic. Some of these are those sort of things.

This first one is a Street Rodder from April of 1973 that I had at home when this car, now on the mainland ended up in my shop around 1988 (well the body at least). It had a foot thick of bass boat flake and candy. I wonder where it's at now, the owner ended up in a convalescent home at a very young age and is still there from what I know. His wife fell out of the passenger suicide door as he rounded a corner going under the door, yeow.



This is of course the Rod & Custom "Dream Truck" and my hero as a teen ager with my 48 Chevy pickup in the barn. I stared at the pages over and over and over.



This is as the writing on the bag says, my favorite magazine of all time. This is one that I literally wore it out. I looked at that top chop article a thousand times, I can still tell you what is on the next page before I turn it, I was OBSESSED with this mag.



This is an interesting one. This photo was taken in 1954 on a little dairy farm out near Newman California out in the middle of the valley. I was on this very spot around 1975! An old friend of my brothers was taking us around the area looking at old cars that he knew of. We went to this place the guy took us around showing us his treasures (most of which were for sale). This very truck was sitting out side, it had been sectioned some years after this photo was taken and was a full on show car it's whole life. I don't remember the miles but the guy told us the original miles and they were crazy low like 5K or something. The barn that is to the left of this photo was PACKED with vintage Fords. Mostly Model A roadsters, stock, old hot rods and a Roadster Pickup drag car fenderless with a straight axle under the front, don't remember the motor. The prices were too high, you know a grand or something for one of these drivable Model A's, he was out of his mind crazy. And yes, I owned this magazine when I saw it in person. I came back home to look thru my boxes knowing I had it and sure enough I did.



This one is from the late seventies with the first car I ever painted that was in a magazine, of course it is a treasure to me. One tiny little photo at the Grand National Roadster show but it might as well have been on the front cover.

It's funny how I have two of those as well. I have found that there are certain issues that it just seems like they printed a million of them, then the next month 28 of them were printed. I have seen the same exact Custom Rodder and Rodding and re-styling MANY times at swap meets, it's odd.

Great thread here Jester, great articles in those mags I can never get tired of them.

Nothing going on here in the north but a blizzard freezing rain sleet and snow LOL ! So I was reading my old mags and thought I would share the articles!! Some young people may not know these little mags even existed They might like the read and pics and the old guys might like the nostalgia

How do you get your pics so big Hotrodders keeps refusing mine if they are over a certain size I have to reduce them before I can upload them on "Manage attachments"?

This is the article on the Rod&Custom Dream truck.



I love the photos of it tearing around the corner.





I have a real connection with the November 73 issue of Street Rod that I purchased at 15 off the shelf at the store. This is Pete and Jakes issue before there was a Pete and Jakes! This whole darn issue is about the builds on their cars, the car that would become "The California Kid" and Jakes "Screaming Yellow Zonker". The motor in Jakes car is a 364 Buick out of a 29 Roadster he bought. That roadster was an AMBR winner from the early 50's, hmmmmm, I forget the car, I may even be the first winner in 49'. Anyway, they did a "road test" of the two cars like in Motor Trend, under "Performance" they put Petes sb Ford at "Good" and Jakes old 364 powered car at "Excellent".





How about the top chopping article with Pete chopping his Screaming Yellow Zonker!







And a punching louvers article with Jakes coupe.



How about an article on flames on the "California Kid"!!



These cars were like friggin movie stars to me. Going to the NSRA Western Nationals in the late seventies and seeing these cars in person was WAY better to me than seeing ANY movie star of the time, they were my heros.
