SurfToons #8, 1 of 3

I think I posted issues of this before. It was part of the Petersen Publications family that included CARtoons, Hot Rod Cartoons, CycleToons, and Drag Cartoons. They were an outfit that published car magazines and because they were based in Los Angeles (they have a museum out there), they only used cartoonists from there, back when it was necessary to live near where you freelanced. This issue is from November 1967.
This piece is drawn by Gilbert Shelton. Before becoming an underground comics legend, he did a lot of work for them, Wonder Warthog was a main feature in Drag Cartoons and they published a magazine collecting his strips for them.
