    Any Automotive Tin Collectors ?

    Here's a few of my tin collection. The 6 on the left were recent finds.
    All are sealed except Zip wax, kleen flow de icer, color black, bowes seal fast.

    Have a few similar pieces...mostly just stuff I remember from being a kid....a couple cardboard and tin quart oil cans, some "Wynnes oil" or some-such and Marvel Mystery oil container like your "Sealfast" one. Not really a collection, just stuff that I have sitting above a bookshelf in the garage for the 'cool factor'.

    Yeah, the WYNN'S stuff (IMO) is the coolest. The label design with the multi-colored rainbow thing screams
    "70's". Reminds me of "Laugh In" and Album covers of the day.

    Found this vintage Hawes Simplex cleaner tin.
    I havent seen another one like it.
    Maybe early 1950's ? It has a paper label.
