Speedway 79 commercial photo.
I would love to know the story behind the Brand A, B, C, D in the 5 gallon cans. Not like she is going to try each one to see how well her car runs.

Hey gas Pedeler , Amoco really did a stunt like that back I guess bout 1970 here . The Amoco rep had several cans of gasoline branded as Esso, Shell, Pure , and of course Amoco Premium . A measured amount was put in the Ford inline engine mounted on a stand for everyone to see. Yeah, ay get one guess who always semed to win an it betta be right !!!!!!


Ans: Amoco Premium .........

Desert or cooled water bag, hung on bumper or outside rear view mirror [didn't have to stop to retrieve]. It's a rubber bag covered w/ canvas & some just used a cork stopper. Canvas was soaked w/ water & as air passed over bag, evaporation would cool the water.
When Dad would drive the tractor out in the field, he'd fill a gallon jug w/ water & wrap w/ gunny sack around jug then dip in stock tank to soak the gunny & set it in shade of fence row.

Dick,
I grew up with the term"Gunny Sack".You don't hear it used much anymore.The newer generation don't know what you are talking about.I remeber the desert water bags and of course the auto air conditioner which attached to the window of the car.My dad idenitified such as "California People".We still call em THE GOOD OLE DAYS
