    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.
     
  5. I just can't belive it's been 2 years since I first saw it online! Definately a good rehash :)
     
  6. As somewhat of a closet "Beatnik", I dig all the crazy lingo:cool:. Thanks for sharing and Happy Anniversary.
    Transfusion, by Nervous Norvis, was always a staple on the Dr.Dimento radio show.
    Happy New Year to all ya' HAMB-Bones:D

    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.

    OK ... that is super freaky - I just got my original copy in the mail that I bought on Ebay (with saved pennies) this morning ! Get out of my head , man!
     
  12. 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.

    Happy anniversary Ryan!----Just had our 60th!!!----How many for you??
     
  15. 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...
