Its Manny Moe and Jack, the founders of the Automotive aftermarket. If you would have walked into a Pep Boys store in the 1950's, you would have seen the Manny, Moe, and Jack in this color combination. Manny with the Cornell Tire, Moe with the Cadet Battery and Jack with the 100% pure, Booster Motor Oil, and yes Manny with his Cigar. All of these products were trademarked and only sold at Pep Boys. When "Moe" would walk in for a store visit, his main and only concern were "take care of the customer", I'll handle the rest. Moe had a large moustache that was waxed and stuck out about 3 inches on eack side. Moe loved to eat at McDonalds on Sierra Avenue in Fontana, California, off of the I-10 and at the Deli in Atlantic Square, in Monterey Park, Ca. Unfortunately when he passed away in 1982 everything changed, but these guys are a piece of automotive history..... Made of casting plaster and sprayed to a high luster finish. Not too many of these left. They measure approximately 9 1/2 inches by 11 inches. They will enhance your Automotive Memoribilia Collection. As you can see Art Deco was in style.
