I thought some of you might get a kick out of reading this old 70 page plus booklet for the motorist of the day. This was copied with my camera, photo shopped, and uploaded to my photobuckwt site for all to read and download.

Here's the first three pages.



Here's the link to the whole booklet. Enjoy!

I posted the link to this booklet here on this thread less then 24 hours ago and got 350 hits on it at photobucket. Only 3 people here on the forum have been kind enough to say anything. If it wasn't for seeing the photobucket numbers on views for this booklet I would think I was wasting my time here posting stuff like this that takes hours to put together.

Jay,

I think what's happening is folks are clicking the link to look at the booklet and forgeting to come back and comment.

I know I did last evening.
Get period information.
Thanks for posting.

Larry

Jay,
Please see PM I sent you.
A great read and very enjoyable.
I KNOW how much time putting together scans and pictures takes.
Many thanks for taking the time to put this up for all to read.
Kind regards

Hey Jay,
You are too impatient, I just found this post and I may need the rest of the day to read your files, but I want to know where I can get a good scraper for 20 cents, this book has some miss leading information:-)
Thanks for posting it.
Best
Gus

It would appear that our friends at Tide water oil still make Veedol, in India.
