Default The HAM!



So I've got Volume 1, Issue 4 of Honk! Magazine. The cover is ripped off, the pages are printed crooked, and all around, it's just in really bad shape. In it, however, is one of my favorite features of all time. The feature covers a '32 roadster that...

That is so cool, I don't think my Golden would be so cooperative, unless there was a tennis ball involved. All my copies of HONK are in storage but I don't remember seeing this article thanks for posting. Always nice to start the day with a smile.

That's on my radar and want to pick up that issue for sure. I just bought my first issue of HONK! which happens to be Issue 1 from Muttley so I am excited to take a look.

That car is awesome but definitely overshadowed by how rad that dog is. I'd love to take my dogs Mildred and Action Jackson in my Hot Rod someday!!! If I could just get them to ride in the RUmble seat properly hahah!!!

I only ever had one dawg that I could bring to a show. An old Scotty that went about everywhere with me. But he wouldn't pose for shit. All he was really good for was drinking my coffee or yours and locking the doors if I forgot to lock them when I got out of the car.

That is a cool old feature even without the dog but the dog just makes it. I really like the engine of choice. You'd never see one built that way today.

Look good at the first picture. I looks like a second dog is looking through the steering wheel column. I know its just a reflection, but looks cool anyway.

The officer writing the ticket was Bud Coons, one of the driving forces behind NHRA.
That was Ak Millar's '32 roadster, with the '41 Chev front crossmember and coil springs...
Was that Ak and Chub's dog? Can't remember, been 55 years.

That is one of my favorite individual magazines of all time, and not just because of the cover shot! Check out the article on building a full-synchro in all 3 speeds early Ford/LZ transmission article, the related article on the road racing rod (Manning, I think?) and just the sheer coolness of tone in the whole magazine! Honk was a helluva neat magazine in its few issues.

Great car and even better dog! Thanks, Ryan, for a great story.

Now I gotta get back to work somehow after laughing and crying for 20 minutes over my own and all lost good dogs everywhere.


Here're two great poems about dogs and their masters by former U.S. poet laureate, Billy Collins...

first...

The Revenant
I am the dog you put to sleep,
as you like to call the needle of oblivion,
come back to tell you this simple thing:
I never liked you - not one bit.

When I licked your face,
I thought of biting off your nose.
When I watched you toweling yourself dry,
I wanted to leap and unman you with a snap.

I resented the way you moved,
your lack of animal grace,
the way you would sit in a chair and eat,
a napkin on your lap, knife in your hand.

I would have run away,
but I was too weak, a trick you taught me
while I was learning to sit and heel,
and - greatest of insults - shake hands without a hand.

I admit the sight of the leash
would excite me
but only because it meant I was about
to smell things you had never touched.

You do not want to believe this,
but I have no reason to lie.
I hated the car, the rubber toys,
disliked your friends and, worse, your relatives.

The jingling of my tags drove me mad.
You always scratched me in the wrong place.
All I ever wanted from you
was food and fresh water in my metal bowls.

While you slept, I watched you breathe
as the moon rose in the sky.
It took all my strength
not to raise my head and howl.

Now I am free of the collar,
the yellow raincoat, monogrammed sweater,
the absurdity of your lawn,
and that is all you need to know about this place

except what you already supposed
and are glad it did not happen sooner -
that everyone here can read and write,
the dogs in poetry, the cats and the others in prose.

and second...

A DOG ON HIS MASTER
As young as I look,
I am growing older faster than he,
seven to one
is the ratio they tend to say.
Whatever the number,
I will pass him one day
and take the lead
the way I do on our walks in the woods.
And if this ever manages
to cross his mind,
it would be the sweetest
shadow I have ever cast on snow or grass.
