Belated spring cleaning turned up several old paper cans filled with something called Trick Shift. I had no idea who B&M were but a quick google search revealed they were and still are a cutting edge racing component provider for nearly 60 years now.
Back in the days of the "slush box" transmissions, they developed some serious alternatives for racing and in fact back in 1969, the prime muscle car days, they teamed up with Andy Granatelli to create the first and only automatic transmission used in Indy racers.
To handle the demands of such high-performance, they developed a premium transmission fluid called Trick Shift. It is still being sold today by the likes of autozone...but in those plastic bottles...the quart paper can now relegated to the pages of history, and my basement :)
