    HELP!!!

    I had my letter published in that Car Toons magazine when I was like 12 or 13 years old. Late 80's or early 90's. Don't remember what issue it was. When I saw it in there I freaked out. I thought I was famous.

    Can anyone check for me and let me know what issue my letter is in? The letter starts out " hey duds, ooops I mean dudes"

    Stupid? I know. I was young.

    My name is Shane Henderson <!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Shane,

    Get your story straight! The letter ended with the "duds" remark not started with it.

    You'll be looking for a copy from December of 88 that will look like this...

    And just to refresh your memory...

    Yeah K&b always got the chicks. The scalloped car dried with matches ended up with a wierd "scaled" effect wich was of course a big hit. Ah the memories... Most of my friends didn't understand the iron ons I wore.

    1) i don't think K+B were/are gay. Although you do have to wonder about 2 grown men living together and sleeping in the same room etc. But even if they are gay who cares?

    2) In the case of G. Trosley also doing work for that "other" magazine i never had a problem with it or thought it was awkward or shocking because he still does it with class. Nothing really tacky about it.

    There's no denying that CARtoons holds a firm place of its own in drag racing history... The CARtoons myspace site is kinda groovy, I haven't visited there in quite some time, but I definitely think it's neat that there's a myspace site dedicated to honoring the memory of the CARtoons 'zine... Although I must admit, I find it to be somewhat disturbing and even disheartening to realize that in these "modern" times, its would be practically impossible for a publication similar to CARtoons to even survive on the magazine rack, that's a bit depressing... I guess the days of when youth would run to the corner magazine store to spend their GRIT paper route money on an issue of CARtoons are long gone, kind of a shame, isn't it?... Thanks to all who've contributed to this thread... "The Doc" (Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary)...

    I don't think Krass and Bernie are gay....Wilbur maybe, but not K&B.

    Nelson Dewey was the cartoonist. I just found his website and he's trying to get things squared around to sell some of his drawings. The panic stop is shown on the site, along with several others.

    I totally have to go to the parents now, and DIG THESE OUT!
     
  25. I'd kind of forgotten about about that site myself, but the Holidays will be here before you know it. Maybe I can scrape up a little "discretionary" income and get myself a copy for Christmas.

    And thanx, hustlinhillbilly, for the Nelson Dewey link. It's good to know that some of these guys are still out there knockin' 'em out. Here's a link to NED's site with a Top Ten List of his 13 most favorite cartoonists. Don't worry about his math, just check out some great art work.

  28. I haven't seen my collection since 1975 and which got lost when I got back from the Military...

    So a couple years ago when I started this thread just to see if someone had an "Iron On" that lasted more than 2 washings!!!!

    post #161 - artist is monte wolverton, drawing is very much in the style of basil wolverton, who did some work for Mad magazine when it first came out in the early fifties.

    kewl.

  30. Was going through some boxes of car mags I have and came across this. I believe I picked it up at a garage sale 20yrs ago. The copyright date is 1960. Enjoy
