    One of my favorites that I actually saw, back when I lived in Toronto, was on the side of a delivery truck for the Howe Folding Chair Co.:

    If it folds, ask Howe.

    Even better, which I never saw myself, was for a product (or maybe service) that's totally escaped memory lo these many decades later -- Miracle something-or-other (no, not Miracle Whip):

    If it works properly, it's a Miracle. :cool:

    When I lived in california as a kid my parents came out to oklahoma at least once a year and that was one of the don't miss things along the road. The other on route 66 now I 40 was the jack rabbit signs for a hundred miles on either side of the jack rabbit trading post. Which I saw is still there as of three weeks ago, but alas the jack rabbit signs have all disapeared except ffor one at the trading post.

    So true. It's hard to read signs on the Interstate highways going ninety plus mph with a cell phone in your ear. :D
