Strange sticker

Postby GavinL » Sun Apr 07, 2019 3:32 pm

Digging in our garden I often find curious bits of metal and other things which have a motoring theme. The sticker below is not untypical, but it was the last sentence which had me curious - any thoughts as to what it might have come off?

Sticker might have said:
My other car is a Bentley (or Rolls Royce)!

Ooh, I know this one!

It's the tab from a GB sticker from the AA. You can just make out the curve of the GB's oval shape. The AA headquarters used to be in Halesowen, as were Reliant (Reliance?) Printers who produced things like this for them.

I always thought it odd that such high-quality (or at least, high-value) motors should have paint that couldn't withstand the sticker for a fortnight's jaunt to Cannes.
Happy Minoring!

So, were rollers and bentleys still using cellulose paint at the time?
