Who remembers these ?

Recommended Posts

Having a clear out and came across some Arcoroc (France) glasses which were collected with Shell petrol tokens in the 70`s, I think.

I seem to recall that if dropped, they smashed into a thousand (slight exaggeration !) pieces.

Anyone else remember them or even still got some. 

Never did like throwing stuff away !!

Mid 80's, Esso promotion??

I seem to remember my parents having loads of these, all different types; tumblers, sherry glasses, wine glasses etc.

Several school mates had tiger tails, given away during the Esso "Put a tiger in your tank" promotion (1960s), but I didn't get one because my dad always bought his fuel from the local BP garage.    Oh, the bitter disappointment.

About the time Esso had the tiger promotion there was a General Election and I recall the local farmer having a sticker in his Landrover back window, "Put a Tory in your tank and your engine won't Labour", pretty far right in those days.😉

My wife recently discarded an old ironing board that had had constant use for 51 years, we bought it on a PG Tips promotion, vouchers plus 49/11  (fortynine shillings and eleven pence) .

The only reason I knew was that my father was operating a fleet of lorries out of Trafford Park and he did a deal with the local Esso petrol station. At the end of the month he would settle his account by cheque in person and fill the back of the estate car with boxes and boxes of the damned things.
