Vintage 70’s Racing Decals
Posted by Scott
Driving through Georgia right now (Tycho show tonight w/ Little Dragon at Masquerade, Atlanta) and came across these vintage racing logos on Sarcoptiform’s flickr. Makes me wonder what it must have been like to sit back with a Coors wearing a Deliverance-era-Burt-Reynolds-neoprene-vest / life-preserver at a drag strip in the 1970’s south. I feel like somehow Aaron Draplin has lived out that exact same scenario via some sort of swap-meet wormhole time warp. I also have to believe he has all of these decals somewhere in his vast collection of great American ephemera.

The Wynn’s logo has stayed the same. They haven’t even done a subtle “upgrade” like Valvoline has. Nice.

I still think the good old STP logo is pretty boss. Nice collection!
