Introduction

   I was raised on a family farm in Southwestern Ontario.  As loyal Supertest customers we
were loaned a Canada Vulcanizer and Equipment visible pump by our Supertest Farm Agent.
Around 1960 that hand operated pump was removed and we were given a small electric 'Gas-
boy ' pump.  I still have this pump, freshly painted Supertest Orange with a brand new decal.
    I still run into our Supertest Farm Agent and have all but picked his attic clean.  My sister
worked for Supertest Head Office in London in their later years and somehow I acquired her
job application form;  I suppose she must have made an extra copy.  And I remember cheering
for Miss Supertest,  the company owned hydroplane as she raced on the Detroit River. 
   Is it any wonder I feel a close relationship to this company? Today, February 20, 2001 as I
launch this site, I hope that it will bring back memories to all who visit.  I hope too that these
same visitors will take the time to share their  memories with me, and I will pass them on. 
I have a small collection of Supertest memorabilia, and an unexplainable urge to research and
document the company's history.  Starting today, and hopefully each month I will add a new
aspect of Supertest history, called a "MONTHLY FEATURE".  Please join in! 
  I invite you to bookmark this site and stop back often.  I plan to share my collection and
research with you, but that would make a pretty small website.  Instead, I have invited several
other Supertest collectors, past employees, and enthusiasts to help me out and share their
knowledge and photos. 
  I will gladly give credit to all contributors.
 

Will you help?
Together, we can make The Supertest Website the envy of all petroliana sites.
