Hi Pignouf and Mariana,

Thanks! I'm partial to the Slyker and the the Cadillac. The front cover was by Forrest W. Orr.

Wow, and all in just one issue! Beautiful. I love the Frigidaire one and how the lady says she only markets twice a week now.

BTW I wanted to mention there's a "blog" out there called "tinseltown-magna" (didn't want to link it for obvious reasons) that is copying your entries. They did it to my blog as well as a lot of other blogs, so I figured I should mention it. Sadly when I did the DMCA complaint Blogspot only took down the content from me that they were stealing, not anyone else's.

Wonderful images; everytime I see the word "Frigidaire", I think of my grandmother, who always referred to the refrigerator as such.

Nice blog!

Hi Stacia,

Thanks for the info. I noticed the owner of that blog also runs about 40+ other blogs. It appears to be maybe somekind of bot blog that collects posts from other blogs. Thats' new on me.

Hi C.K. Dexter Haven,

Thanks! I Uncle Willy also used the term "Frigidaire". He was around back when they only had ice-boxes.
