The cover story isn't in this issue.. the pages were printed wrong and page 62 wasn't included to explain how to buy Dean's transporter



This is the Dean Moon Cheetah transporter.. and my December 1961 issue of Car and Driver doesn't have pages 57 to 65. It has pages 73 to 80 printed twice. See http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/12/update-on-dean-moons-awesome-hauler.html


The new owner of the transporter, (and finder of unique autos) Goeff has a copy of the Robert Lee Behme "$16,000 Transporter" article, the pages missing from my issue, and let me share them with you. Thanks to Dan of Hemmings http://blog.hemmings.com/ for connecting us!

STP ads from the 60's





The below column references the above advertisements typed letter, click on it for full size


STP most likely is best known as the sponsor for the Petty race team, and I bet you'll be surprised to learn that STP was the Chemical Compounds division of Studebaker (it's in the fine print... look at the 3rd ad very closely once you click for full size)
