    Some 30 year old Turtle Wax bottles I recently uncovered

    I was working on my grandmas car and found these in her garage:





    The flat bottle is from 1989, the other one is from 1931. These are both much older than I am!

    Here's a unique old bottle of Turtle Wax that I have in my antique car wax collection. I actually have a full page newspaper add, (both sides of a opened newspaper), for this bottle of Turtle Wax from 1950. It's interesting in that the ink for the ad is both black and green. Something I would guess is kind of rare in a newspaper from 1950.

    By the way, the bottle touts that the wax contains Brillium

    So tough to find a car wax with Brillium these days. What a shame....
