How to Build Your Own Truck

Although there is no mention of a Rolls Royce in the article below, I wonder if a young John D MacDonald happened to have read it and stored it away in some deep recess of his memory. It comes from the June 1933 issue of Modern Mechanix and Inventions.

(If you have to ask why, you're visiting the wrong blog!)


  1. Wow! The secret history of Miss Agnes. Another great find Steve!

  2. Definitely from another era. I have an old Boy's Own Paper anthology from before WWI. Lots of articles like this, with titles like Build Your Own Wireless Receiver (from the days before Radio shack) and Learn to Tumble! (without any pictures, of course).
