    Cartoons was a great publication. I remember loaning my stack to a friend and never getting any of them back to this day. Luckily I lived in the same town as George and became friends through the years. He is aces and a blast to hear tell stories. George and his family are great people and I am blessed to know another person more talented than I. haha

    Has it really been six years since Car Craft brought back Krass and Bernie? MY how time flies!

    Met him a couple of times at Phila area shows. My wife bought herself a print ( which he signed for her) called Man's Best Friend of a bunch of dogs wrenching on a rod while he sits back in a chair.

    Super nice guy

    My favorite.
    "into it" A guy working IN his motor with one arm out of the header reaching for a wrench the other header his legs are hanging out of.
    It hangs in my office so I can see it everyday

    Thanks in part to Trosley my CarToons collection used to be my prize possesion but due to a 'lifestyle' change in the 70's I switched over to 'The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers' and now I cant remember what happened to my CarToons!:confused:

    Was familiar with his work in CARtoons, and then later in VW Trends.

    Didn't know he freelanced for Hustler until just a couple years ago. Pretty sure Shawn Kerri worked both sides of the bizz too.

    Well guys, I first saw Trosley works in adult mags, didn't see his car art 'til later, but the style was still recognizable! You all have a safe and Merry Christmas, Cat

    ditto.
     
  10. I had one of his old Hustler cartoons framed on my garage wall years ago. The cartoon was of two old 1800's trappers standing over a sprung/closed Beartrap with a bloody pair of balls stuck in the teeth, one trapper was saying to the other... "Somewhere out there is one mean fucking bear":eek:
     
  11. Since you know the Freak Brothers were you a fan of Wonder Warthog:D That was one tough guy!

    George rules! I'm fortunate to live so close to him and see him every now and then. Great guy. Very down to earth and a good business man to boot. I enjoy hanging out with him.
