These stickers have me stumped. Is this a common thing to see on older split's?

No, I don't think it's proper German. Just wondering if these are a common thing.

I've seen them once or twice before, but I've never seen them for sale... just in other cars. People get funny looks on their faces when they read them Very Happy

Joke stickers.

They appear to be fairly recent as they are much nicer than the patina of the bus.

I've heard of more than a few buses/bugs with these stickers.

If they are clues to being a euro model vehicle, what makes a "Euro" model unique? I don't know enough about euro specifications, can anybody help out?

Those were stickers you got at JC Whitney back in the 60's.

Yes, those were a JC Whitney item back in the early/middle sixties and were rather popular. In those days, an import was rather an exotic thing for most people and this was a way of having fun with it.

At one point in the 70's I was getting the exact same catalogs from both JC Whitney and from Warshawsky's so I knew they were one and the same but I never knew which one was the parent company. They never did learn how to pack parts, scrap boxes and a couple sheets of newspaper just didn't make it.

Quote:
J.C. Whitney is the largest direct marketer of auto parts and accessories. The company began life in 1915 as The Warshawsky Company, a scrap metal yard on the South Side of Chicago. The company's founder was a Lithuanian immigrant named Israel Warshawsky. Throughout World War I, Israel bought failed auto manufacturers and added new parts to his inventory. The Warshawky Company continued to grow, even during the Great Depression.

In 1934, Israel's son Roy joined his father at the company after graduating from the University of Chicago. Roy proposed expanding out from the Chicago-area with a nationwide catalog and placed an ad in Popular Mechanics for sixty dollars. The ad offered readers a "giant auto parts catalog" if they sent in twenty-five cents and response to the ad was huge.

Roy took charge after his father's death in 1943. He continued to grow the business through World War II, always developing new strategies in response to changing customer needs.

Roy retired in 1991.

In 2002, The Riverside Company acquired JC Whitney.

That is classic info right there. I remember going to Warshawsky's back in the late 80's to buy my chrome engine tin, gasket kits, and other worthless junk, but I do remember how cool that old building was. You would walk in and see about 100 catalogue stands, pick out what you want and fill out a form (still have one filled out) and hand it to a guy behind the counter. Wait for a few minutes, sometimes longer, and out this huge ramp on your left slid down your parts from the warehouse.

Brings back memories, even if they sold mostly junk. The warehouse used to be on 22nd street I believe just west of Chinatown.
