I’ve owned this for almost 30 years and walk past it every day. I’ve only just noticed the Agip dog has six legs. Had to google it, apparently the artist hasn’t made a mistake that’s the actual logo. Anyone else never noticed it?103743

“Buff my Bumpers” is a strong contender.
A sordid tale of auto bodywork paint correction.

That said.
“Blown Trany”- Confessions of a cross dressing gearbox mechanic.
May prove popular nowadays

I may also write an educational pamphlet on alloy wheels.
“Rimming for Beginners”

Fascinating. I looked this up and the symbol was chosen from a competition…

“In September 1952 the committee chose Luigi Broggini, an important Italian sculptor who had lived in exile in Paris and Switzerland during the Fascist years, as the winner.

His six-legged dog was seen as a visual synthesis of the strength, energy and optimism that were driving Italy's economic miracle. Enrico Mattei himself was a big fan of the logo – and Italy took warmly to the symbol. The impossible six-legged animal called to mind the chimaera of ancient mythology and soon became familiar across the country.”

More here…

Can we do requests?

”Oil my camshaft” sounds promising as a title
