Prestone Celebrating 90th Anniversary In a Big Way
Iconic Company Seeks Vintage Mementos, Launches Historical Website
Do you own vintage Prestone signs, caps or bottles? The leading antifreeze company is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a national memorabilia search and a very cool and comprehensive historical website, Prestone90Years.com.
While the official anniversary date is June 5, Prestone is getting a head start on a long-term campaign to celebrate this momentous year. The brand has planned multiple activities for 2017, including a large-scale, nationwide search for branded memorabilia to uncover previously lost or unknown artifacts from the brand’s past. The company is looking for vintage Prestone signs, cans, bottles, advertisements and any other historical items. Found items will ultimately come to rest in a permanent display at the Prestone corporate archives. Noteworthy submissions may also be included in nationwide travelling museum exhibits. Longtime fans and users can learn more about how to participate on the official Prestone Instagram and Facebook pages.
‘We’re extremely proud to help car owners safeguard one of their biggest investments.’
Before Prestone started in 1927 with the introduction of its breakthrough ethylene glycol formula, drivers had been using highly-flammable alcohol. Now celebrating its 90th year, Prestone Products Corporation has grown to become the leader in under-the-hood chemicals, and its iconic yellow jug continues to be the top choice for vehicle owners.
“It’s incredible to think about how far the automobile has come in 90 years and how Prestone products have led the industry with innovative technologies to keep those cars in optimal condition,” says Steven Clancy, President of Prestone Products Corporation. “We’re extremely proud to have pioneered hundreds of technological advancements that help car owners safeguard one of their biggest investments.”
