Lets look at some of the paper items:
Another ad-



This atlas also is found with blue text instead of green.

Some artist blocks


They marketed the oil as the best for Chevrolet and ford. You name it Powerine was the best for it.

The powerine company had a biweekly station update magazine that they sent to all of there stations. The thought was that by sharing the ideas that were working at one garage would in turn help another jobber be successful. The station owners or lease's may have been good mechanics but not all were the best businessmen. Likewise some were good at business but not changing oil or fixing common problem's. The magazine 'Prompter' was a very valuable part of me researching this company. I have uploaded all the original scans that I have to my website for any that care to read them. They are all from 1940-1943 during the war years. WARNING- Not for dialup users as the files are very large... Enjoy and let me know what you think!
