Re: Advertising

The only place I've seen square drive is on campers and motorhomes.
In 1970 I volunteered(I know I know) to fix the windshield wipers on this girl's mother's '58 Chevy. The cowl grille had strange screws so off to the hardware store. I found out they were clutch head screws and there were two size drivers at the store so I bought both to be sure. With all the shit I've delved into in the 50 years since I've never used them again.

I'm talking about the screw on the left but some sites are calling that one way screw you see in bathroom stalls a clutch head.

I'll bet that boys' restrooms need the one-way screws more than the girls'.

Re: Advertising

The 2020 turmoil has changed some businesses and that affects advertising. At thanksgiving Taylor Pork Roll in NJ stopped sales because every shipper said no way to guaranty 2 day delivery for the rest of the year, plus no refund if they tried and failed. The lack of car production caused used car prices to climb at a rate of 5 or 6% a month at Manheim last summer.
But when I see this shit  at bring a trailer, I'm amazed...

The army wanted Bakers, 500 of them, plus 100 cooks. The Cooks get $38 a month plus clothes & bed & board & medical.
If you can bake bread you get $45 a month. If you can't bake bread, they'll teach you at $33 a month.
Of course Bakers get the same clothes & bed & board & medical.
Seems they could save a lot of money by eliminating the Bakers, let 'em eat cake.

A couple different companies (3 I've heard of) have tried to demonstrate their ability to produce quality large decals by making pickup tailgate size decals. They were surprised at the negative feedback

I couldn't find a picture of the third.

Are vinyl Back Rhinos as endangered as regular ones?  Are regular ones the Corinthian ones?
Or are they both gone after fifty years?

Re: Advertising

Me thinks somebody at Ford was goofing on Ricardo Montalban.
By the way, Mopar's Corinthian leather was made in New Jersey.

Apparently Mopar wanted you to know the prices on their 1958 lineup.

Re: Advertising

Man, they were selling the same crap 100 years ago too.
I'll bet they added the word apparently because of complaints and threats of lawsuits.

From the same source, that $6.50 is $99 in 2021 money, but it will run on most any juice.

I thought these were the bees knees. One gallon cans of oil that the first layer goes right side up and the second layer goes upside down to save space shipping.

Re: Advertising

This reminds me. 

I ordered a 5 quart jug of high mileage motor oil from Amazon the other day.  I had heard it would help with old rubber oil seals leaking oil into the cylinder, and since my "95 Prizm is getting long in the tooth and smoky in the rear, I thought I would give it a try.

Anyway, Amazon sent me the following notice:

"Unfortunately, a problem occurred during shipping and we had to cancel your delivery. The package is being returned, and we will issue a refund within 3 - 5 business days after the return is processed."

Can you image how messy 5 quarts of oil made things during the "problem in shipping?"   How many packages did it ruin in the truck?  All of them?

Re: Advertising

Perhaps.  Throwing some different oil in it is less work than pulling it apart to check.
