Popular Imported Cars began in October, 1964 as a bi-monthly publication and featured road tests and reviews of small and affordable automobiles from the United States, Europe and Asia. Publishing continued into 1974 when the title ceased. However, there is some evidence though unconfirmed that the magazine was re-titled to Small Cars.
The title was originally started by Frank W. Coggins and Pet Publications Inc at 47 Halsey Street, Newark, New Jersey. Less than a dozen issues were printed, then it was sold to Adrian Lopez and his Volitant Publications organization in early 1967. Mr. Coggins then became the editor.
Mr. Lopez published many magazines including Sir, True, Laff, Real Crime, Surfing, and Ladies' Circle, as well as automotive titles such as Stock Car Racing and Super Stock & Drag Illustrated.
