      Hey Gang,

      What auto magazines had an effect on you ?????

      Mine wasn't really auto magazine - Popular Mechanics and Popular
      Science magazines given to me by my Uncle Ot.

      First one I bought was "HOP-UP" and pocket sized hot rod magazine and
      them came "HOT-ROD MAGAZINE".

      Then it just snowballed from there.

        Mine was Motor Trend in
        the 1950s. There was a
        great column on old
        cars by the late Robert
        Gottlieb, the man who
        invented the
        term 'Special-Interest
        Autos'. Also, I'd read
        the short-lived Auto
        Age and Car Life. Tom
        McCahill had some
        hilarious comments in
        his Mechanix
        Illustrated columns -
        and there was a poor
        $1.98 knockoff of him
        in the dying Science &
        Mechanics magazine by a
        guy named "Joe Gutts".
        Anybody remember Joe
        Gutts?

          Amazing. These mags led me to the Radio Shack. As I recall, t'was Boston Mass that had the first Shack. Built a few crystal sets from a few cents investment. I felt I was quite cool having formed a radio from raw materials. And I was. Popular Mechanics sent us Whizzer Motor Bikes. King Midget cars. Plans for the Dipsey Doodle Hydro plane boat and so many other things I enjoyed. Friends have found and given me very old PM mags and I cherish rereading them.  I remember Uncle Tom's road tests on Crosleys. Any one sent off for a PM scooter plans?............p
