Photograph article dated May 25, 1963 partially reads "Miss Joni Boda and I stuck an ice pick and a pocket knife into an expensive tire, posed for a picture while the air hissed out, then used 'Spare Tire' to plug the leaks and reinflate the tire. The new I-wish-I'd-thought-of-that product worked perfectly." Pictured are Valley Times reporter Larry Paulson and Joni Boda. Miss Boda is holding a can of Spare Tire, a tire repair product.
