    I think that was the first issue of Sports Illustrated I ever bought or read. I can't remember much about the article though.

    Call it a good rehash then... I'm on the road with my wife for our anniversary, so it will work in a pinch.

    One of the best car articles I ever read was in SI (I think) a looong time ago. It was about a guy who street-raced for money, drove a Mopar of some kind, I think. Said after he rebuilt the engine he would pour a quart of oil over it and drive up and down a dirt road to make it look old and tired. He was pretty cagy about picking races and stuff.

    Have this SI copy and the same photo was used on an LP record album. I always have a couple copies of each for sale at any Parts Meet I set up at. They both make great Garage Wall Art when framed. The 1957 Life magazine Hot Rod issue is also a kool read with some of the same info as the SI and the full page photo of Grabowski and the Kookie T at a drive-in.

    Ha Ha! I love the second page with all the psyco-babble about how they all hate their mothers. Most fruidian analysts are the most twisted up bunch I ever met! But you never see a hot rod parked in front of a shrinks office!:D
    I also liked the comment about the guys engine "Being clean enough to eat off of"... "No way! you'de leave crumbs on it!" So true,so true.

    After reading all 9 pages, I learned what I already knew. Hot Rods are the best thing since fire.

    How come everybody born after 1970 thinks beatniks were car people?

    Sawed-off sweatshirts, berets, shades, and sandals did not a beatnik make...
