Still sold today
Some bars in town still have them, which is funny because you haven't been able to smoke in the bars here for almost 10 years.
Somewhere i have an ashtray with the Burger King logo stamped into it i took from a BK in high school in the 90's....back when you could smoke in fast food resturaunts.
I remember a fire breathing evangelical preacher in my hometown that taught his flock that sex was for procreation only, and any wife or husband that allowed himself to actually enjoy it would burn in hell.
He also taught them that all of them God-hating heathens, Mormons and Catholics was disciples of the devil.
One day he was holding forth in the town park, and I asked him if there was going to be anybody else in heaven besides him and Jesus!!
I was afraid his followers were going to kill me, but most of them were laughing louder than I was!
I had one of those in my sports car. It was far less expensive, than replacing the rag top, because some clown cut it to get at the $15 K-Mart radio.
I inherited my Mom’s matchbook collection.
Here in Bama the locals call it WILD CAT! And it is GOOD STUFF!!!

There's really little difference in the pronunciation of the word. The various spellings of the name - as Murgatroyd, Murgatroid, Mergatroyd or Mergatroid tend to suggest that it wasn't an actual surname.
My folks had piles of them. From the 1940s to the mid 1970s
The glass ones were rare but the coolest.
Heavens to Murgatroyd, Batman!!!
Anyone remember when we all thought Batman was super-kewl and we were too young and naive to recognize the very subtle anti-gun "messages" in almost every issue??
Murgatroyd is an English surname. Its etymology, according to one source, is as follows: in 1371, a constable was appointed for the district of Warley in Yorkshire. He adopted the name of Johanus de Morgateroyde, or literally: Johanus of Moor Gate Royde or the district leading to the moor. Another source says the place name means Margaret's road. In Norse, the Royd meant "Clearing" (as in a forest).] Although Moorgate in London was a gate with the road to the moor passing through, in Yorkshire, Gate (again from Norse) means street, so Moor Gate Royd would be "A clearing in the forest on the road to the moor".
The name is also used in the favorite catchphrase of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon character Snagglepuss – "Heavens to Murgatroyd!".
I don't remember a time when Snagglepuss ever spelled it out.
Those were the first true “Fastbacks” but they were attached to slugs....
Jim, streamline and fastbacks have been around since the first autos were made.
Like the electric 1899 La Jamais Contente
More mainstream was the 1914 Alfa Romeo Streamliner
And what could be considered the most beautiful car ever made, the 1937 Talbot Lago
I remember seeing these.
