Last Call- Mechanix Illustrated by Boris Artzybasheff Edition

Boris Artzybasheff came to American with only fourteen cents in his pocket, and no understanding of the English language. Despite those impediments, he became one of last century’s most unique advertising illustrators, equatable to being declared the American Dali. And Mechanix Illustrated was not above celebrating his unique talent.

    I fully expect to have nightmares starring Mr Haybaler there. It doesn't help that the bales seem to be coming from his head and the hay pickup would therefore be in his nether regions.

    It's the Farbs from yesterday all over again! Though half-transmogrofied cars don't bother me as much as ptschett; Mr. Haybaler is doin' a dandy job tying up all those bales automatically!

    Er, Mr. Lower Right Vehicle, where exactly is the steering column mounted?
    I don't really want to know.
