Default Dave Bell

Dave had a heart attack April 18th and last week was admitted back to the hospital and quickly diagnosed as having very severe brain cancer. His family was told he will not be coming home. Dave is being moved to hospice this afternoon.

Very sad to hear this. Just imagine how many of us grew up reading his cartoons every month. It has always been my favorite part of the magazine

Very sad news. Dave is a great guy. Quick phone calls with Dave would turn into hour long conversations. I can truly say he is one of my favorite people. Prayers to Dave and his family.

Prayers from our family to yours, Mr. Bell. You've inspired so many of us, and to his day so many of us want our hot rods to look like your art!

Lost my dad to cancer in December, I truly feel for your family. God bless, and God speed.

I was blown away when he put me in one of his cartoons.....but meeting him was way beyond belief. Just plain fun....and no ego. Truly one of the greats. So sad to hear this information....If his family sees this....."prayers headed your way"

It was always a touch of class, the way he honored those in the hobby who had passed. It is hard to believe that we will now honor him and we have no one to draw his final honor like he did for so many others.
God bless Dave Bell and prayers for his family.

back in the day the first thing I would look at in Street Rodder was the Bell cartoon in the back. I'd study all the little details of his drawings since there was so much going on in them.

great style.

Am so sorry to hear of this!! He did a Henri Hirise of our 40 in Alaska for the Sep 80 issue of SR. Talked over the phone with him a few times, used to send me his Tee Shirts for comments. ALL WERE OUTSTANDING, needless to say. Finally got to meet him in person 2 or 3 Father's Day Roadster meets ago. Walked up to him and said you wont remember me but you did a HH in Sep 80 of my 40 in Alaska, he said yes I did, you are Dave Mock!! BLEW ME AWAY!! What a memory, we talked for an hour or so about the "GOOD OLE DAYS", what a trip!!! He gave us an autographed "Special" HH poster for Sue and I!! Meant a lot, means more now!!! Thanx Dave hope for the best for you, in our prayers!! SPEEDY RECOVERY!!!
