TRJ #70 Out Now!


We’re excited to announce TRJ #70 is now available, and it’s one of our favorite issues we’ve ever printed. It covers everything from historic and in-progress hot rods to the saga of a long-lost Barris custom. For the newsstand cover, we photographed Mickey Himsl’s freshly refurbished ’29 Model A pickup that he originally built when he was 15 years old. Subscribers are treated to a head-on shot of Dave and Deana Thomas’ Pennsylvania-based ’35 Chevy in baremetal. In the new issue, we also have a tour of TRJ garages, a survivor Moonshine runner, a northern California drag racing retrospective, a canyon-carving ’50 Ford, a profile on famed cutaway artist David Kimble and much more.
