But the one I miss is a magazine called True. Published by Fawcett Publications from 1937 to 1974, its full name was True--The Man's Magazine. There was nothing else like it. Unlike the rest of the men's guts adventure rags (which were hugely popular at the time) True was not only truthful, but created by writers, editors, photographers, and artists of the first rank. In its heyday during the 1950s, True was overseen by Ken Purdy, who was not only a superb editor in chief, but is still generally acknowledged as the greatest automotive writer of all time. True has no modern equivalent, but in television terms it was a combination of the Military Channel, the Outdoor Channel, the History Channel, and Spike TV.
