    OMG, stickers! When I was in elementary school circa early 1970s, good automotive stickers were worth their weight in gold on the playground.
    I hit paydirt when my grandmother gifted me with a couple of STP stickers one day. The Shell station she took her Plymouth Fury to for fill-ups (full serve only back in those days) had scads of them and gave them out for the asking to their regular customers. Well, I convinced her that she needed to get AS MANY AS POSSIBLE EVERY TIME SHE WENT THERE. I think she drained the guy's supply over her next several visits, and they were like cigarettes in prison to my friends.
    By the time the trading dust settled, I had scored an array of great stickers, including the famous Clay Smith Cams woodpecker, Cherry Bomb, Holley, and scads of others. I think they ended up stuck to my bedroom desk or something, and now they're in a landfill somewhere I'm sure.
    But, ah, stickers. Just the smell of their (probably) toxic vinyl was nirvana in my youth.

      Similar sticker-collection-amassing obsession here in my pre-drivers licensed youth, and similarly, my desk gained many pounds of protective advertising vinyl. Didn't matter one whit what the brand was, so long as it was at least tangentially related to anything powered by internal combustion.

    I would say this picture is definitely a 'Wynn Wynn'.

    Hurst, STP, Crane, Moon. All we need is an old Mustang to slap them on…

    Last time I was home I looked up some of my old toys for my son. There was a wooden dump tuck my uncle had made me that I had covered in stickers in the early-80's. "Mazda RX-7 Rally Team" and "Moomins love Talbot Horizon" got a chuckle out of me.

      From what I can tell, most (if not all) of those are 1960s-70s vintage. Flowmaster wasn't around then.

            We all know there were hookers around in the 60's and 70's…
