HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011.....

Hi everyone...Hope you all have a Very Happy and Safe New Year 2011. There's much more to come on HR&J in 2011 so be sure to check back from time to time. We will be getting back to more local history and more cool car stuff next week.
Don't end up looking like Daffy here, with his face and eyes all red....even his Woody Woodpecker slippers are laughing at him.

Poor Daffy.....Check this next old sign....with the gas prices climbing higher and higher, beer is definitely cheaper than gas...even in Canada.........BUT, as noted...If you drink, DON'T drive!

These are old ads from the 1940's, and not soon after the invention of the automobile, there were signs like this one posted in many places that gas and whisky don't mix. The little one here is a cutesy Happy New Year postcard with a little car and the last one is one of my favourite "Aspirin" ads saying that "Aspirin" is as fast as this old stock car, but hopefully you won't need any the morning after your New Years Eve party.
Poor Bowser has a hangover after the New Years Eve party and he might have had to use a number of remedies such as the ones in the next photo(remember these)??
Click twice on this one for sure to see how to relieve a hangover with "Alka-Seltzer". Remember "Plop plop, fizz fizz, Oh, what a relief it is!"
Poor Homer also indulged too much and is having a bad dream thinking that he feels just like the little round faced guy in the next photo.....Is that how you look after your New Years Eve party?? LOL
A couple more vintage remedies for the proverbial hangover. Indulge a bit, enjoy but be sure to drive sober....We want you back to read Hot Rods and Jalopies in 2011.
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR FOLLOWING OUR WEBSITE.....IT IS VERY ENJOYABLE BRINGING IT TO ALL OF YOU........Be Safe, Dave and family.
