    I was cleaning out an old shop and found these two cans. One is a one quart Quaker State DeLuxe in a cardboard can. It was manufactured in Oil City, Pennsylvania in 1981. The other is a one quart Perm-A-Trans automatic transmission fluid in the same kind of can.It was made by Certified Fluids Inc. in Houston,Texas. I thought they looked cool and I see how Frank flips over this kind of stuff so I thought I would share them with y'all and see what you think.

      Cool find, but it always depresses me when I see stuff like this on antiques and collectibles pages because I remember selling them back in the late seventies. Thanks for making me feel like an old geezer.

      I guess we must be old geezers as I would look at them in my garage and think there are a couple quarts I should use up.
      Kind of like my grandson saying: "Grandma's phone has a wheel on it"

      The Quaker State can should be pre 1942 since that is when they changed the can design to DeLuxe being diagonal IMHO!
