Default Reminds me of....

...a guy I met in the late 70's.

He was an heir living in a Penthouse on Michigan Ave in Chgo. His granddaddy go THE contract from the US Gummit to DYE the US Army clothes in WW! and WW!! and Korea.

Some other company made the clothes BUT his company DYED them the special khaki "Army Green". That's ALL they did was DYE the uniforms.

One thing about "the rich"....they are in contact with OTHER "rich".

Anyway...I met this guy in a "Business Opportunityl" convention.

He and I were in a seminar and he liked my "questions". So...after the seminar, he came over and introduced himself and asked me if I'd be interested in promoting a product he had the "US rights" to.

Of course....I immediately asked him..."Whatcha got?"

He told me someone in the UK had produced a "Special Spark Plug" that, when placing it in place of a regular spark plug...could tell "a LOT of things going on with that engine....just by the COLOR of the top of the clear plastic on top of the Plug....whether that engine was running rich, need of a tune-up...burning too much oil...etc.

A TERRIFIC product for "women" or anyone who would like to know the "condition" of their engine....instantly....simply by the COLOR of the top of the plug.

He called this product, "COLOR-TUNE".

Well...I "got involved" with the guy. I introduced him to some big car dealers who were customers of mine via my Burglar Alarm business.

These dealers were REALLY EXCITED about this product...BUT....he had a heart attack and died and ....about that time I was going thru a I lost contact with the product....and...I'd like to know if anyone viewing this has any info or has heard of a product called, "COLOR TUNE"...that can TELL, froM the COLOR of the top of this special spark plug...what was going on in the engine.

Dien...thanks for bringing up this about "Military Uniforms". Reminded me of a product that would be a BIG HIT today...."Color-Tune".

I think I'll spend the weekend doing some research on this product and see if I can find out what happened to it.
