A beautifully preserved copy of POPULAR MECHANICS magazine from April 1952 - Report on The Foreign Cars. These magazines have hours of fascinating articles to read as well as many automobile, Camel cigarette, and men's care product advertisements inside. Many of these ads are suitable for framing.

In this issue there are a bevy of articles about the latest foreign cars, as well as a large multipage color spread about the Leathernecks (marines) in South Korea, and a B&W multipage spread on SEARCHERS OF SPACE (rocketry and astronomy).
