Gasoline/Motor Oilby Rene Vincent
Shell Motor Oil Gasoline Poster
1926 Shell Oil Vintage Auto PosterVincent, an advocate for ultimate elegance and style, creates a design that not only promotes Shell oil as a superior product for your vehicle, but one that improves the quality of life in those who use it, distribute it and for the car that operates with it. The spirit of freedom always present in the auto-oriented consumer practically cascades off this metal sign, featuring one of the jauntiest, spit-and-polish pump jockeys you will ever see. It is also implied, through the gleaming hood ornament of the automobile in the sparkling service stop, that the use of Shell products will turn any vehicle into a Shell car, which the bottom text, is the very least a discerning machine deserves.
