Avon Straight Eight
Here is a vintage 1970s Avon bottle featuring the Straight Eight race car. In the picture you can also see the original box.
The green decanter is adorned on the top with a big red circle with the number 8 printed in bold black lettering. The name “straight eight” comes from an early style where the 8 cylinders in the engine block were placed in a straight line along the crankcase. This type of engine first become popular before World War I, but by World War II it had been completely replaced by more modern engine designs.
