The title says all--and for some reason I seem to recall something similar in print, by a French artist, along the lines of "Le Locomotive Gran Prix," based on the race at Le Mans. . .

Oh well, have fun.

This outrageous cartoon was first published in Road & Track magazine, November, 1981. Reprinted in Dean’s Garage by permission. Like I said before, I saved the cartoon all of these years but threw out the rest of the magazine. Many thanks to Stan for this great post.

Thanks, Bob, that's about what I remember, though I don't recall the opening and closing segments!

I've seen it posted elsewhere without the intro indicating it's a dream sequence. That site has the most complete collection I've ever seen, and the text seems to indicate that it's all of the drawings that were published.

Makes it even more appropriate for this forum, if there's anyone left with a sense of humor.
