UPDATE: Happy May Day! Below are all the pages from this issue of the newspaper.

This unusual newspaper that popped up on eBay the other day. It was the seventh issue of the Northeast 4WD Racing News. There was no publish date, but one editorial puts this at roughly January 1976. It’s 14 pages published in a full-size newspaper format, so the pics are big! I’d love to see other copies if anyone knows of any (or knows how long this paper lasted).

(The images are extra large to allow folks to read the small text. Click on the image, then most likely you’ll need to click on it again to expand it to full size)

This is the front page:

    what ever happened to the U.S. Mules guys? Some of their jeeps were featured in 4-wheeler magazine a long long time ago.

    Steve, not really sure…got out of the racing scene years ago. There sure were a bunch of them though.

    Bob, do you have any idea regarding how many issues of this newspaper were printed? Someone put extensive work into creating these newspapers.

    US Mules are still active, some of the Jeep are still racing today, Second and third generation.

    David, not really. I do remember seeing that paper when I was a kid around the Lisbon races, but could not tell you how many issues they did. I saw it on and off for a couple years I guess.
