“Fiberglass Funnies” – Hop-Up Magazine, April 1953

Hi Gang…

As Rick and I have canvassed thru reams of 1950’s magazines, we’ve found many cartoons that touch on – or directly relate to – building and driving fiberglass bodied sports cars.  From time to time, we thought you might enjoy seeing some of these cartoons.  So this makes today our second in a series focused on “Fiberglass Funnies.”

I’m exploring how to post the panels of the cartoons so they can be easily read.  You’ll see a slightly different format for the pictures above – and no gallery of pictures below.  I hope this makes it easy to read, and fun for everyone.  And… you can click on the following link to review all “Fiberglass Funnies” we’ve posted on our website:
