Old Oil Ad

My husband runs his own auto garage. I’m trying to find old oil ads for the waiting area. Does anyone remember what company used the line “If you make things hard on your engine, your engine will make things hard on you?” How about “It’s cheaper to change your oil than your engine?”

You Can Trust Your Car To The Man Who Wears The Star.

Remember Texaco gasoline and Texaco Oil ?
My Havoline oil now says it’s made by Chevron, but it still carries the star with a “T” in it.


I tried typing “antique oil advertisments” into my search engine and got loads of sites that specialize in that. I’d recommend you try an internet search.

Fram oil filters used to say “You can pay me now, or you can pay me later.”


Hemmings Motor News has all sorts of auto related stuff.

If you’re wanting those enameled steel signs, they are very popular, you can look on ebay or at area antique dealers. Reproductions would be much cheaper, of course!
