View Full Version : Old Meguiars Products?

Apr 23rd, 2010, 09:30 PM
I'm not exactly sure what year these were manufactured, nor what they actually do. I found all these after a storage closet in my garage, collapsed a couple days ago. I'm sure there are more old Meguiar's products in there somewhere, but I'm just curious when these were made and if they are even rare or not.

I don't have pics (and I don't know how to insert them properly), but I did show them off in a recent Youtube video of mine. Take a look and see if you can help me out here.


New Garage Space, Old MEGUIARS Products

Well you might be wondering about the title, so here's the explanation.

Due to a recent yard sale my mom had, we managed to clean out a space in the garage, which I have been approved to use as a cool, dry space to detail my customers' cars. Not to mention a good amount of shelf space to store all of my detailing products.

Now a good thing that came out of a bad situation. A couple of shelves in the shelving closet in our garage collapsed the other day, due to the weight of all of the things inside it. But in the process, I stumbled across a small assortment of detailing that my dad used awhile back. My guess is that they are from the late 80's to early 90's. If anyone knows how old these products really are, then let me know. Enjoy the video everyone.

That's some cool old product. Those are all collectors items. Keep them or you could even sell them on MOL if you want.

I'm just curious as to what year these were manufactured. I can't seem to find a date on when these were manufactured, but I do know that the product in them is still good. In case nobody can get ahold of the video, here's a list of what I found.

Meguiars M20 has been around for at least 25 years, I actually use this product a lot. It is an awesome light duty cleaner wax.

Not sure how long M17 has been around. I have M18 though.

Meguiars M07 has been around since the 1920s or 1930s i think. I have the same brown bottle as you do, as well as a newer one.

Meguiars M50 is an awesome product, I have the liquid and paste version. I have used it on boats and jet skis.

If i were you, I would keep all those products. Do not sell them, especially the M50 or M20. Give the M20 a try on your car or one of your customers cars, tell us what you think.

I echo the above thoughts. Keep them. They are worth saving.

I have the same items in my dad's garage. Along with M05 in a 64oz. container.
