I still am...I have almost every issue except for a few in the 70's. I love the new K & B stories in Car Craft.

What a coincidence,.....I just got done going through and re-reading April 65 CarToons and Sept 66 Hot Rod Cartoons!

when I was a kid growing up in Indiana, I dreamed of moving to California and working for Cartoons mag! Didn't quite work out (we can't all be Trosley)! Wish I had all the issues that I lost over the years.
