Lyk-Nu…After All These Years

It was the 1940’s and, if you really wanted to treat your ride to the newest 2 in 1 product, you looked to Lyk-Nu Kote-O-Wax! Not only did it clean and wax your car in one easy application, it now came in colors to match your car!

On a trip to our friend Jim’s salvage yard in Colorado, we were dig, dig, digging in a large cardboard box that was sitting on a pallet outside. We pulled a lot out that was truly just junk but, when we pulled out one particular manila envelope, it simply fell apart in our hands. What we found inside was a matching set of original countertop easel advertisements for Lyk-Nu Kote-O-Wax!

Amazingly, the colors were still vibrant and they were remarkably well preserved. Our eyes nearly popped out of heads and we instantly knew they were coming home with us!

Of course, we kept one for ourselves (who wouldn’t?) but we’re passing the other along! This beauty measures 24″ high and 11″ wide. Has a bit of what appears to be water staining in the right corner and a small tear on the right side but, really, it’s a beauty!
