Here are some of Rick's ads
He writes, "Here are three Van/Art ads. Note that the bottom two are autographed…these are two of my prints which I bought from Art. You can see their two sets of initials at the bottom of the illustrations. The CA article is very interesting if you have the magazine (or you can find it on eBay, I’m sure). I probably have dozens of their ads which I found in magazines (I used to prowl junk shops, antique stores, and so on to look for old magazines from the forties through the seventies, and I’d cut the ads out and save them). Altogether I have about 6000 of them stored in boxes, sorted by make)."

"Here are three more. The Buick is an ad from my collection but the initials weren’t put on these. The bottom two are two of my autographed prints, and the ads as run in the magazines did have their initials (on the Firebird ad, they are in the shadow and hard to see). Note the Grand Prix theme for the GP ad. Cool, eh?"
