Big Bad John and Wynn's Friction Proofing

Some of the real gems on Bluegill's '40 weren't visible from the outside. Once BG popped the hood he found evidence that the previous owner was a kindred spirit.
The photo at right shows a view of the bottom of the hood, where you can see several decals for Wynn's Friction Proofing.

In the 1950's Wynn's was being used by racers and street drivers alike to reduce friction and to increase engine life. Wynn went so far as to stage media events where they would drain a car's crankcase of all its oil and then drive the car 25 miles around a track to prove that their product would offer long lasting protection.
