~~ DOWNSIZING MY COLLECTIONS ~~For you consideration we have (1) Vol. 1, Issue 1, inaugural Collector's First Edition of Open Wheel Magazine . I bought this when it was first published in 1980 and it's been kept in a protected environment ever since. It has a few very minor wrinkles on the covers, but otherwise is in excellent condition, with no stains, smudges, or loose or dog-eared pages. 90 plus pages of every kind of fenderless oval track racing: Midgets Sprints Dirt champ cars Super-modifieds Indy cars Jalopies
Wonderful action photography by the period's great racing photogs including seven double-page photo/art layouts. It's all :Old-timers Famous drivers of the day (some no longer with us) Today's greats in their youth Early days of the Outlaws Tracks Owners Promoters
This First Edition of Open Wheel is an absolute must for the serious historian of American automobile racing, or the fan who would like to reminisce or learn a bit more about the transitional period between the "old days" and the highly refined present day versions of open wheel racing. Don't miss the opportunity to own it.I make a sincere effort to accurately represent the condition of an item and you are always encouraged to contact me with any questions you might have. Good luck in the auction and thanks for looking.
