CB Action Magazines

Who remembers the old CB Action Magazines? Back in the late 70’s there was nothing better than cruising down to the local newsagent to pick up the latest edition of this legendary magazine. They were $1-00 per issue and initially there was 12 issues per year or monthly editions.

Funny now that I look back through my collection I realise that half of the content was ads. Oh well at least even the ads had that cool retro look to them and how cool were the old Dick Smith ads. I used to love dropping into Dick Smith’s as a youngster and checking out all the cool electronic gear, I love Dick Smith, I wish he was our Prime Minister. How good would the country be if he was running the show.

If anyone out there has any old CB Action that they want to sell then PLEASE drop us an email via our contact page. Over the coming months I will attempt to scan and upload all of the CB Action covers both as thumbnails and full size images so you can print them out or even just reminisce over them.

Where are the CB Action Cover Girls now?

Have any of you ever wondered what the old CB Action cover girl models are up to now and even what they look like? I keep hearing that the Boost Juice woman “Janine Allis” was once on the cover of a CB Action Magazine. If anyone knows which edition it was let me know as I haven’t come across it as yet.

I recently read a post on a Whirlpool forum about CB Radios and Electronic gadgets and someone mentioned the CB Action models. The same comments were made about what the cover girls possibly looked like now. Hey we’ve all aged a bit since then so I guess most of them aren’t wearing bikinis now days.

  1. Yep they sure were good times back in the 70,s with a CB radio in your car, cruising around the streets of Adelaide. Unfortunately now it’s all mobile phones which are kind of boring.

  2. The 27mhz CB is still being used, and more people are getting them back on the air.
    I’m going to scan some of the CB Action magazines I have, converting them to PDF, and uploading them to a Facebook group I admin. Fire Up The Wire – Aussie Radio Enthusiasts.

    1. Hi Wayne, good on you my friend. It’s really great to hear that there are still some old die hard enthusiasts around. Great stuff.
