I found a home for my Uniroyal Tiger Paws sign and a friend of mine sent me the attachment for an original TV commercial.

How many of you remember this when even the commercials on TV showed a whole lot more of the simpler times! LOL

I had a new '66 SS396 Chevelle and these were the only tires I could use to keep the car on the road. All the others seemed to slide in wet weather? Tiger Paws were top of the line, in my opinion. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

That first commercial looks to me to be from the 1960s, not 1980s.

Uniroyal Tiger Paw Tires have been sold since 1961...

This is an original "Tiger Paw" that I have that would fit a '70 Olds 442.

Brings back good memories, G60's, G70's, and Crager 7" and 8" deep dish mag wheels. Good times!

I was born in 64' so a bit before I was driving, but its all good. I need to find some cool signs. I know a guy that has multiple buildings covering a city block and their packed with tools and stuff. I need to see if I can get back for another look soon.
