    I know what a Turkish towel is; Turkish cotton and open-end looming. It's the "toweling" part I don't get. Oh well.

    I have this same era bottle that has been sitting in our car wax collection for a long time. Barely used, like new old stock. Last week I pulled it out, shook it up, and used it to clean my headlights. Worked great! The rubbing actually seemed to take off more of the oxidized coating than wet sanding. It's dark tan and has the consistency and smell of liquid crayons if that makes sense. I'm going to buy a new bottle of PlastX tomorrow to compare....But the mystery of the manufacturing date is bugging me. UPCs/barcodes started showing up on items 40 years ago (1978), yet clearly these bottles were from the Irvine years. Was Meguiar's not putting barcodes on their products? And what year did the Meguiar's logo change?
