ABOUT THE SET:

This is an awesome set of sticker cards that were printed by Topps in 1980 called Weird Wheels. There are 55 stickers in the set, which basically covers the gauntlet of the whole monster funny cars thing (the Kustom Kulture movement, Ed Roth's Rat Fink, Stanley "Mouse" Miller, as well as stuff like the Aurora model kits: Dracula's Dragster, Frankenstein's Flivver, Wolf Man's Wagon, Mummy's Chariot, Godzilla's Go Cart and King Kong's Thronester), though it skews it a little.

I believe the cards were painted by two separate artists, Norman Saunders (who mentions on his site that he did 22 of the stickers) and Gary Hallgren. Though I grew up a little late to catch onto the whole Kustom Kulture deal, I really like the art and style of this stuff. The energy in these paintings in undeniable, and of course I love the monster themes in a lot of the stickers. They're also decidedly un-PC which is kind of fun in this uptight day and age. I really like the Putrid Porsche sticker above, as well as the outright zaniness of the Voo Doo Vette (complete with voodoo car/doll) with the bloody teeth/front grill and the matching mask.

I also love that the set gets a little room to breathe with 55 different paintings so there is plenty of room to explore both the more classic Universal inspired monsters (like Frankenstein's monster, the creature, the mummy, vampires, and a werewolf) as well as monsters in general (dragons, giant insects, and blobs), interesting pop culture stuff (the punk movement and greasers), and even historical baddies (pirates, samurais, and the Huns.)

(From Brandedinthe80s.)

I also show the original box these cards came in. If you buy a box now, most packs will cost you at least one sticker to the gum after all these years. The gum “melts” to the card and ruins it.

Let me know if you have any questions.
