    In 1961, you could get a 27" Wen-Mac Texaco Tanker ship for $3.98 with an eight gallon fill up at your local Texaco station. I have video of myself and two brohers as kids on the lake. We each had one.

    In Britain it was nothing as Good as that,for every gallon you put in you got a token when you collected enough you got a tigers tail this was from Esso I think ,my dad's tiger's tail hung from the rear View mirror for years ,so many the sun bleached it White.
    Cheers Marky

    Yeh! Marky, I remember that, I think the saying from Esso was, 'put a tiger in your tank', and all they gave you was the TAIL!๐Ÿ˜ 

    Cheers, Pete

    Colin,
    They only gave you stick on bullet holes as it is illegal for Forecourt attendants to shoot real holes in your petrol tank making you purchase more petrol. LOL!!

    I think the bullet holes were because there was a gangster series being shown on TV ,might have been Elliott Ness?.There was also the little busts and coins of football players.

    It's not so funny when you can't remember where you parked the car.
    Cheers Colin.

    We tend to be a bit lively of thought as our bodies slow down.
