Mustard and Mayo?
Do you take your classic car with a little mustard -n- mayo? Yep, I’ll take them Vogues! Trues and Vogues don’t always go together, but when they do, they make a great combination.
What are we talking about? Today we’re going to talk about Vogue Tyres!
Vogue makes tires, wheels and accessories, but they are best known for their Custom Built Radials, the tires with the white wall and distinctive gold stripe. The Vogue Tyre and Rubber Company has been in business for over 100 years!
The unique gold stripe was patented by Vogue Tyre in the ‘60s. The combo of whitewall and gold stripe gave rise to the term “mustard and mayo” to refer to Vogue Tyres. . .
