“The motor that makes it here can make it anywhere”

1973 Evinrude ad

“The motor that makes it here can make it anywhere.”

Such was a 1973 slogan for Evinrude Motors, in an advertising campaign featuring Toledo Bend Lake.  Back then, Toledo Bend was just a half dozen years old and was filled with trees and stumps, making fishing fabulous but navigation a challenge.

“This is Toledo Bend… 80 miles of bass woods and water on the Texas/Louisiana border,” the print in the advertisement reads.

“With trees above water, jungles underneath, and stumps in between– it’s no place for weak-sister motors or tackle.

“Evinrude’s tough new bass boat motors take it in stride.

“On the long runs, their high speed efficiency cuts miles and gallons down to size.  Firepower electronic ignition keeps things smooth from top speed to trolling.  Tough new motor mountings  add strength where you need it most.  While balanced trim-tab steering and power shift keeps everything under finger-tip control.

“The tougher the going the more Evinrude has going for you.” Text of advetisement

  3. Wonderful article on our awesome and inspirational Sheriff!! ⭐️😎 Go MM50! 😊Thank you for this insightful article, reminding women of color that embracing who we are can often be ‘life or death!”I learned some of thiswhen I was diagnosed with a different cancer…. I also learned about how many black women who passed away for any reason (and used relaxers), were found to have a residual layer of the chemicals in their scalp…. So the chemicals never totally “rinse” out.Those chemicals only help give the appearance of growth because the end result is stretched hair.The reality is that it damages it.Our thicker, coils, kinky hair is FAR more healthy in its most natural state, which is why one often sees locs down folks’ backs!Though there are current lawsuits out for uterine, endometrial and one other cancer as a result, we need regular reminders like this article to reiterate that we ARE enough JUST AS WE ARE!
