PPDVM: 1968 Derby Cigarette Lighter

Recently offered at Ebay (and I missed out on it because, even to "snipe" a bid for a PPD item, there's no way I get up at 7:30 am!)

Sadly, I don't think the purchaser was really interested in Powder Puff Derby memorabilia, but rather just "Tobacciana".

Armstrong Floor Wax was a race sponsor. One one side of the lighter is an ad for Armstrong one-step floor wax, on the other side, that race's theme: For women with more exciting things to do than scrub floors."

The lighter is a Scripto-Vu lighter.

I have this Lighter, and am willing to sell. Was researching Armstrong 1968 Powder Puff Derby when I came across your Post. Please leave post if interested.
