Oh yeah!

I was (and still am) a huge fan of the "Monsters and Hot Rods" fad of the '60s.

I still have quite a few also.

Cobrask8,
Very HIP, I've never seen those. It looks like they had to be from the early 70's based on the cars pictured. Thanks for sharing!

PS. Did / do you own the 67 convertible with white shelby stripes in the 80's at various NJ shows. I'll be posting pics from Nutley as soon as I get them scanned.


Propayne,
That's what I thought of when I saw Cobrask8s images...do you have the cobra and mustang "pony express". I can't find mine but, I know there here somewhere.

I was like 7 years old.  I didn't know crap about cars.  I know my mom and dad sold alot of
these in their grocery store.  I do remember listening to Joni Mitchell and the Mamas and the
Papas on the radio.

Great collector items!

I remember these. They were great. I loved Wacky Packages also around the same time.

richstang - I do have a Cobra Odd Rod card around here somewhere. Don't think I have the Pony Express card tho.

In fact, I've got the Cougar cards that are in Cobrask8's original post, but I can't locate any of them at the moment. They are in a box somewhere.

Of course, the "King" of the monster/hotrod thing was Ed Roth (of Rat Fink fame). He had a guy working for him at the time, Ed Newton, who I think was the absolute best at this style of art.

Attached are a few of the Roth/Newton vintage water slide decals that I have. They did a very cool '67 Shelby decal also.

Wow. I had totally forgotten about that. Just the name of the cards in your post title suddenly brought a flood of images to mind.

Does this signify the onset of "oldness"?  Shocked

I guess the "Odd Rods" are much older than the "Weird Wheels" I posted. I got mine around 1980 from the local Mom & Pop soda/candy/ store on the way home from school.
