    Is there some truth in that" Danger" warning at the bottom of the can that could carry over to the one that everyone is referring the likeness to?

    Too blooming funny.
    I think that there are a few other guys my age or older who actually read though that New England Primer when we were young. I'm thinking that somewhere in grade school history we saw a copy or had a lesson about it.

  25. In the 50's Standard Brands stores had Black, White, Red Lead lacquer primer for $5 a gal. Great for "primer spots" when you shaved the hood, trunk, and door handles.
