    You may well be right. Gear oils have "EP" Extreme Pressure additives to ensure that the lubricant stays on the gear faces as they interface under great force. I was a lubricants buyer at heavy manufacturing plants and the number of products for specific industrial applications amazed me. Those lubrication engineers are mighty smart people.(y)

    Ahh, yes; when tires had innertubes...

    Which made the greatest floats ever invented for the swimmin' hole. But you had to make sure you wetted the whole surface down before hoppin' on them, or you'd get scorched!

    Nothin' like layin' back in an innertube on a cool creek in the hot afternoon, watching the clouds go by...

    ...at least I assume they weren't advertising vacuum tubes for sale?!

    Nah. He's at that in between age, young enough not to notice, old enough to prefer his milk cold.

    No, she ensnared him with the balloon.

    I don't think so...

    But what about his dad, on the verge of forgetting he's a married man?!

    "I'm a married spud; I'm a married spud!"

    The sign "Stop Motor" might take on a new, additional meaning...

    And notice the sign in the background, with the cartoon man in the car. This was a very well composed photograph!

    1950. Cool. Back when customer service was a real thing and even some fun. Not just smoke, mirrors and hot air.

    Was related once to Onion Pacific. They had to be broken up because all those Onions made a monopoly... :D :whistle:

    I really want to know what the slogan is at the bottom of the "Onion Oil Co" sign!
