Anyway, that's why you'll never see swastikas, rising suns or SS death heads on my stuff. It dishonors my heros.

Well said.

Clay Smith's cigar-chomping woodpecker and the Mooneyes logo. Instantly recognizable and timeless.

I seem to be developing an old tool fetish as of late. In one of the
boxes of junk that has come my way was a 5 in. monkey wrench
made by Billings and stamped PIERCE with an arrow going through it.
I was wondering if it could be a Pierce arrow wrench and the links
on the JJ today seem to bear that out as evidenced below. Cool
decals too for a little time trippin. Thanks!

Speed equipment logos from the fifties and sixties were generally designed by somebody's sister-in-law or a friend of a friend. Bright, bold and simple are not the "buy" words of a lot of computer trained graphic artists today. A decal easily recognized at "speed" is the Crower Cam lobe style design in purple/white/black from the sixties.

I only have two more and I've already got them stashed away in my personal collection. There's a small chance that I might be able to get a few more, if I do they will be posted here.

Look in old car mags for stories on the L.A. Roadsters "Clubhouse". One pic in an old R&C shows Normie Poo sitting in a chair next to trophies emblazoned with swastikas sitting on the display shelves next to him.

One of my favorites is the Car Craft Street Machine nationals stickers from back in the '80s.
My 1985 sticker is the only one on my Snap-On box at work!
