And thats final!

I decided to not think about the shape of the world and be oblivios toall the press B.S.Iam going to read about hot rods and get all the magazines I can like I did over the years but now I can get them all.Any one remember the little mags in the fiftys?I walked twelve miles into town to get them when I had no car.Sometimes I would get a ride and sometimes not.Just seeing those great rods was a simple reward then.Guess I musta got jaded over time.

It is funny you should post this now. I used to buy every rod mag (back when there were only two!) in the seventies and eighties and read every page. The last number of years I don't buy a single one and I also don't get a single thing done on my rod out in the garage.

This past Thanksgiving weekend I spent at my bothers house which has no TV (or at least no ant) and read the piles of mags he buys. He had just about every one that you could buy, I read them all. I got fired up to go out in the garage like I havn't been in years. Having those things around keeps you enthused.

I am going back to reading the, I need to get back into the hobby and I am going to to hell with the "economy", 99% is simple work anyway, I don't need money for that!

I like the goofy sense of humor Car Craft and JP has, and Muscle Car Review is an awesome read as well.

Yep, if you can find any of the "little" mags (Rod & Custom, Car Craft & Hop Up), the prices are high.

They had more "How To" articles then as well.

oh boy

I nor anyone really knows but where is bushkill?I went to Hershey Hs a long time ago.IF you want to sell these mags I would certainly want them but value wise it would be a giant guess like most old hot rod stuff.So many current rodders never even saw these little magazines.The older uf us have though and couldnt somehow I am sure remember where they got to.You are very,very fortunate to have what you have and should leave this as a wonderful legacy to your children .But you can Gmail me if you want to sell.

bushkill is in the eastren part of the state, right by the delaware in the delaware national recreation aerea. pretty much a black hole as far as any media is concerned, but it does have the advantage of being right between hershy and carlisle out west, syracuse up north and island dragway & englishtown to the east in jersy, all these places are only a hour or 2 away w/o any traffic. like i said, the mags are my dads and i figure theyll be here foerever, not that i can complain if he does decide to sell, ill be short to let you know.
