I never met Mike, but I was a cover to cover reader of his Overdrive magazine back in the 60's & 70's. I even subscribed to it when I was on vacation in Southeast Asia. Jim Drinkhall was the Associate Editor for the magazine. Not sure where he disappeared to though.

I didn't know I had to use 'tags' please let me know about Mike Parkhurst, I worked for him for 9 years 1964 to 1973 and I've wondered about him for years, please let me know if he's alive and if he would get in touch with me through this site! He was the best boss ever and I loved working for him and his staff, we had such a great time back then and I have such fond memories of that time. I was the one who typed Overdrive Magazine, my name is Vonda

Hi there, I have searched and searched for Michael Parkhurst for years and then I just typed in google "whatever happened to Overdrive Magazine?" and this site popped up!! I thought maybe Michael had died, according to Ancestory You say you worked for Mike from 1970 to 1978, I worked there also from 1964 to 1973 I typed the magazine and my name is Vonda I'm sure we knew each other! Mike was the best boss ever and I have nothing but great memories of the staff and working there, we all had a terrific time! If you know where he is please have him write to me here!! Thanks

I spoke with Mike today. Met him in Louisville when he was at MATS selling a new movie he put together called Trucker Wars, it's a great documentary about the strikes that he and ITA was involved with. It has lots of original news footage at truckstops and interviews.

Hello, I am a former employee at OVERDRIVE Magazine. 1970 - 78
Mike Parkhurst is alive & very private
His comments can be found online from time to time.
Sorry, I do not have an email for him
Send a Pvt message and maybe we can figure out a way...
In my opinion Michael has been robbed of an accurate historical representation.
His Heart, true and his concern for the treatment of Truckers - first.
**Please share on Michael Parkurst appreciation page on Facebook
I have nothing but pleasant memories from my time with the Overdrive crew.

Hello, I am a new member here. I have been looking for information in regards to the Parkhurst family. Specifically William Parkhurst, and Michael....I am asking because somewhere around spring 1991 I did a construction clean up at Van Nuys Airport, CA. I believe it was a warehouse for Overdrive Mag at onetime. Well I was more interested in the memorabilia than clearing the trash. I took boxes of letters, photos, cards, ect......I became obsessed with their family history. With what I could piece together they were of course wealthy, education and social people... Now years later I am going through boxes. I have some left over items. And was wondering if anyone had a contact for them. Maybe the family would like to have these items or maybe not. But if I could be pointed in the right direction I sure would appreciate it.
I will check back.
