My Grandfather retired from AC in 1968, and he and Grandma lived on the 1400 block of Indiana Avenue. I remember seeing this stuff in his garage, and eventually we ended up getting a can. We used it one winter and I don't remember this product working very well, UNLESS we were not using it correctly...Thank you for the sharing the memories, Professor. Semper Fi!
Just updated this post with a video of someone putting liquid chain into action...and getting close enough when applying it to his tires to get a few lung fulls of the toxic vapor.
Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
