Wow!! It sounds like some of you don't like this little piece
I understand. I don't love it either, but with all due respect to the old Texaco thermometers that where posted here. They are not very attractive to me. Maybe the mountian pic one. And in this case, I get a much bigger smile from the fantasy piece. Although I hate the FAT "T". It is wrong!! When it comes to thermometers, it seems Texaco falls a little short.
IMHO, it should be "Repro" for "Reproduction". But, "Repop" just rolls of the tongue easier and seems easier regardless of it's origins. Wow! Now we're debating not only reproduction gas stuff, but reproduction words! : )
Also, would not this "fantasy" piece have to be manufactured with copyright permissions from Texaco? And if so, would that not somehow make it a legal piece of Texaco advertisement? Just laying that out there for discussion.
