Sports Cars & Hot Rods - Magazine Covers - 1953

Sports Cars and Hot Rods was created by the editors of Mechanix Illustrated and published by Fawcett in New York City.  This team also created one-shot (annual) magazines such as Best Hot Rods.  The editor was John Kingdon.  Only two issues were published. 

These used a standard sized format with a wide range of cars, engines, suspensions, brakes and drive trains.  And there was no "us versus them" -- the sports cars and rods were presented equally and in a favorable light.
